Marie Danielle is an indie folk singer-songwriter from Harrisburg, PA who now resides in Water Valley, MS after a few years each in NYC and LA. Her dark and clever songwriting connects to audiences with its naked honesty about love, loss and addiction. Within a year of her first live show, Marie was touring throughout the US and Europe. Before her debut record ‘Hustler’ was even released, her song ‘One of My Kind’ was featured on an episode of Showtime’s series ‘Billions.’
Marie had played her songs in private until a brush with death in a violent domestic relationship lent her the courage to reach out to an artist she greatly admires, Simone Felice. Marie sent her demos to this founding member of the internationally acclaimed Catskill Mountain based Felice Brothers, whose seminal self-titled album remains one of the most influential works of this century's indie folk revival. Soon after, Marie and Christian Wargo (Fleet Foxes) left LA for Woodstock, NY to begin recording with Simone. What started as an EP grew into a full-length record – Hustler, featuring Felice, Wargo and even the original lineup of The Felice Brothers who back Marie up for the first single ‘Soldier’, a travelling song to which they lend their swagger. Hustler, which has been called ‘Intoxicating’ (AXS.com) and ‘Spectacular’ (Ear to The Ground Music) also includes a cinematic cover of Conor Oberst’s ‘White Shoes’.
Hustler got people paying attention. Marie is currently recording her second album at Dial Back Sound. She is working closely with co-owner Bronson Tew who will co-produce the album with Marie. The forthcoming release will be a departure in sound and style from her earlier work. The end result is something bigger and darker than Hustler. New Myth will release in 2018 on Dial Back Sound’s newly launched label.
