NEW SINGLE - this is what it means to be human - OUT 14 AUG - SINGLE - dead to me - OUT NOW



Singer, Songwriter and Multi-Instrumentalist Dani El-Rassi, known for her big voice and emotive songwriting, boasts a debut EP 'The Best Is Yet To Come' under her belt and a sold out a string of shows across NSW in 2019, including her sold out EP launch at Sydney's Oxford Art Factory. Dani proceeded to take her band on a tour of the country, playing shows all over Australia. 

Having performed in over 10 countries around the world, Dani has been invited to share the stage with Atlantic-Records artist Ben Abraham, Catherine Britt, Hollie Col and many others. With a variety of Festivals to her name, including Tamworth Country Music, Nimbin Blues n Roots, and Melbourne-based Soda Fest, Dani's newest single 'dead to me' displays a shift in her sound. The track attracted glowing reviews from Happy Mag TV and extensive radio play. With no slowing down in sight, Dani's new single 'this is what it means to be human' is available from 14 august via bandcamp or streaming services. 

Dani's sound is heavily influenced by the storytelling, pop-acoustic-folk vibes of Melbourne-born artists Missy Higgins and Ben Abraham, as well as Sydney's Dean Lewis, combined with the ballad-pop influence of Adele, Rhys Lewis, Lauren Daigle and JP Saxe.

Career Highlights 

Dani's critically acclaimed genuine and heartfelt approach has garnered radio attention and attracted esteem from her musical peers. After being invited by Melbourne Singer and Songwriter Ben Abraham to sing a duet at a sold-out show in December 2018, Dani went on to sell out her very own show at the same venue, only weeks later. Shortly after, Dani was invited by Singer and Songwriter Hollie Col to play on her Australian Tour. After Dani's successes to date, Dani looks forward to releasing new music and seeing the world at the same time!

Life is not what it was a few months ago. How are you all coping? I recently sent out a newsletter (sign up via my website) talking about my main coping mechanisms and I shared some resources. 

Make sure you're doing what works for you and don't worry about anything else. It's never easy to re-learn how to exist in this world but we must be grateful for all that we DO have, whilst allowing the bad days to come and go as they need to. It's alright to be struggling right now! I hope you know…

Music - the hype, 2019 recap, life balance, what next? 

Soooo it's been a while. How ya doing?

2019 was the biggest year of my music career yet.

It involved writing, recording and releasing 2 x singles from my debut EP and then the EP itself. It involved upwards of 5 sold out ticketed shows in Sydney alone, as well as NATIONAL TOUR (!!) with my band. I also released a brand new single which is the precursor to an entire album that is in the works.... and I received my first two Internationally recognised reviews by the super-reviewer "Happy Mag".

On 28 June 2019, I released my debut single 'Breathe'. For those of you who don't know me, I have an eclectic mix of passions, but music has been my greatest drive for 20+ years (can't believe I'm old enough to say that, wow).

We did the official launch to a SOLD OUT Sydney crowd who SOLD OUT my merch and you could have heard a penny drop in that venue, it was so silent and every ear was listening to every word I was singing and

The Songwriting Process 

Every song I write emerges with an initial feeling.  Sometimes, it seems like songs just materialise out of thin air and I am just their vehicle into this world.  Other times, it takes a lot of concentration and piecing together of a puzzle to complete a song. 

For nearly 10 years now, I have been writing down snippets of words, songs, song titles, books, concepts, poems, movies - noting down what they made me feel. 

And then, when the time is right, a melody comes into my mind, or a chord progression, and…

Life On The Road 

ain't no glamorous thing. and it sure as hell isn't easy. but god it is fun.
The Journey So Far

For years I've been writing music and dreaming of doing a formal release as an artist with my own brand and band. The lead up to recording this week was like something from the movies. It changed my entire perspective, made me feel accomplished (since I had to save so much to be able to afford the EP) and lit a fire in me that had been waiting to come to life for quite some time.
