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

DEBUT EP  | THE BEST IS YET TO COME OUT NOW

General 

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. Dani has spent 2021 writing and collaborating with other artists, and celebrated with a sold-out run of shows at Sydney's Camelot Lounge and Newcastle's Stag and Hunter hotel. 

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'  was played on over 150 radio stations across Aus and NZ. 

Dani's pop-folk-ballad-sometimes-country sound is evolving rapidly, drawing influence from folk and pop artists together with pop-rock and alt-indie-rock bands from around the world. Think Missy Higgins, Gordi Music, with influences drawing from Ruston Kelly and others. 

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. In 2021 Dani has played to all sold-out audiences, and can't wait for the next tour.

Oxford Art Factory - Gallery Room, 38-46 Oxford St, Darlinghurst NSW

Mad Fer It Promotions is proud to present DANI EL-RASSI's - DEBUT EP LAUNCH at the OXFORD ART FACTORY Gallery Room on Friday 13 September 2019.

Dani El-Rassi is a Sydney based singer and songwriter whose career is taking off at a sky-rocketing pace. Dani's Debut EP is to be released on 13 September, after selling out her Debut Single Launch show at the Botany View Hotel, as well as her SOLD OUT Debut 'One Night Only' show held at Sydney's 'The Newsagency'.

Following the release of her Debut Single 'Breathe', Dani's music has reached thousands of streams internationally, and has been played on multiple Australian radio stations, playing live sets and being interviewed by various stations across NSW.

In this midst of her personal successes, Dani's career has seen her be invited to go on tour this year with Americana (Australian) Superstars Catherine Britt, Melody Moko and Natalie Henry for their 'Woman Enough' Tour. Earlier in 2019, Dani was also invited by Songwriter Ben Abraham to sing a duet at his Sold out Sydney Christmas show, as well as being invited by Hollie Col to be the main support during her Australian tour.

Dani has never been one to shy away from tackling confronting topics, in an all-accessible and relatable way for her audiences. Dani's Debut EP highlights just a taste of her ability to draw her audience in with her raw and sincere story telling, often with a lighthearted approach, providing an opportunity for the audience to warmly look at life's challenges and the growth that occurs over time.

A run of shows + A political WIN. 

8 Nov 2020: the day that all the emotions hit at once.

A day that goes down in history, in world politics and beyond. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have taken back power, ending Donald Trump's administration. It is overwhelmingly beautiful - not only have the Democrats won, but America showed up and voted in numbers never before seen, in all history. And the majority of those people, and the majority of the states, elected a leader who supports humanity, the environment, women, people of colour, migrants…

Pop singer/songwriter -

Dani El-Rassi entered #TheNewsagency stage to loud and extended cheers from much of the sold out crowd. Those fans knew what newcomers were about to discover, and this was after two terrific support performers as well (Belle Kerr, Malaika Green).

With crystal clear lyrics and a crystal ring of a voice, Dani El-Rassi shows why ‘pop/folk’ music - simple, honest little moment/story snapshots – is something to…

"Chuck Moore Reviews About" Dani El-Rassi 2020 

DANI EL-RASSI

Review by Chuck Moore

(Django Bar at Camelot Lounge Marrickville - two seatings)

Singer Dani El-Rassi had a wonderful 2019, from her live show at The Newsagency to her EP launch at OAF [Oxford Art Factory].

Her show(s) at Camelot Lounge’s Django Bar reminded, and re-captured, a sold out audience all over again after “700 years – 9 months of Covid”.

Clear of word in singing and lyric, an engagingly happy El-Rassi, backed by her 3 piece band, has been doing a lot of song writing during…

COVID-19 - LET'S CHAT. 

LET'S CHAT COVID

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".

Debut Release - Behind The Scenes 

BREATHE - DANI EL-RASSI

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).

(Click here to listen) - let me know what you think!

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.
