After successfully releasing her debut single ‘Crazy’ to Australian country radio earlier this year, Danielle Todd is returning with a highly anticipated new single ‘Back Burner’. This fast-paced infectious song (co-written with Natascha Myers and Curt Gibbs) unveils a fierce and edgy side to Danielle’s natural charm, focusing on the empowerment of walking away from a toxic relationship. ‘Back Burner’ encompasses classic country vibes with a modern pop-twist.
“I am so excited to follow up my debut single with an upbeat, confident country sound. My first single was received so well in Australia, I can’t wait to see how my Aussie fans will respond to “Back Burner”. This song is for anybody out there who is feeling “stuck” in a relationship that no longer serves them, walk away folks! It’ll be worth it in the end”.
Following a childhood comprised of watching her rock-turned-country musician father make a living and eventually making a name for herself doing the same, Canadian country singer-songwriter Danielle Todd made the move to Nashville, Tennessee. Cutting her teeth day in and day out under the neon lights of Broadway, she quickly learned the grit it takes to survive an industry that sometimes takes as much as it gives. It wasn’t long before she met country/pop producer Grady James, and together they unveiled her sound: a formula of pop/soul, rock and classic country to become what Danielle best describes as “classic country gone pop.”
With the pop sensibilities of the likes of Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, a focus on country acoustic elements and a dash of quirkiness, Danielle finds indicative of her sound, songs like her debut single, “Crazy,” came to be. Released early 2019, “Crazy” took Danielle to higher heights. The fresh, upbeat tune was well received on Canadian Country Radio, in particular Sirius XM where it enjoyed high rotation for months and charted constantly. The song also reached #80 on the main Canadian Trax Report. “Crazy” enjoyed success in Australia, reaching #13 on the high profile KIX Country Chart and #37 on the Music Network Chart, which combines radio airplay.
The worldwide release of ‘Back Burner’ will be followed with an East Coast and Ontario radio tour in Canada and shows in Australia early 2020, including Tamworth Country Music Festival.
