Canadian singer-songwriter Danielle Todd is carving her own authentic path in the country music scene on her own terms. Her latest single ‘Over You’ can be described as ‘sweet meets sass’ packaged up in a swinging Country-Americana tune. With an instrumental track reminiscent of Lucinda Williams, ‘Over You’ accounts what it’s like to be entirely fed up with the task of getting over someone. Heartbreak is hidden under the guise of Danielle’s latest single.
“I wrote and recorded this song quite a while ago. It’s my favourite song to sing vocally as it’s one of the most challenging. I feel like it’s the first song I’ve released to radio that’s started to shine a light on my vocal capabilities. I remember sitting with my friend Jazz (absolutely KILLER vocalist) and writing this song. We were stuck on a hook, which is unusual when so many people tend to start writing a song with a hook in mind. I can’t remember who said it first but one of us in frustration said “I am SO over this right now,” and boom! There was the hook. The rest of the song came together quite quickly and working with Jazz as a writer really brought a different sound, that I absolutely adore. I’m very proud of this song and I can’t wait for my fans to hear it!”
Drawing inspiration from female powerhouse artists like Patsy Cline, Martina McBride, Shania Twain and Faith Hill, Danielle commenced her musical career in Ontario, Canada before the bright lights of Nashville beckoned. Working five to seven days a week, Danielle earned her keep under the neon lights of Broadway. Whenever she wasn’t singing, she was honing her songwriting craft, a passion that had stuck as a result of working with acclaimed Ontario songwriter, Ambre McLean, who encouraged Danielle to take up the piano and attend various songwriting retreats.
Over the last few years, Danielle has continued to hone her sound, resulting in a pop-country mix infused with undeniable Stevie Nicks-esque inspiration. Mix that up with a touch of edginess, and a little bit of quirk that Danielle finds indictive of her sound, songs like her debut single ‘Crazy’.
Danielle’s past singles have all enjoyed high impact success on the likes of Canada’s Sirius XM, CMT, KIX Country (Australia) and Australia’s Hottest 50 Country Chart, including her most recent single ‘Heat of the Moment’ which saw its video debut on CMT Australia. Chart success combined with several tours to Australia including performances on the Southern Hemisphere’s largest country event, Tamworth Country Music Festival have cemented a loyal ban base there.
Her highly anticipated single ‘Over You’ continues to build upon her persona as the cica-1970’s girl next door that keeps it real and relatable. With sweet, crooning vocals sitting on top of an instrumental track reminiscent of another time and place, this swinging midtempo track joins Danielle’s catalogue as yet another tune on repeat.
Danielle Todd’s new single ‘Over You’ is out to radio on 10th July and on digital platforms on 14th July.
