Danni Leigh is equal parts poet, fearless entertainer, sexy chanteuse and rebellious non-conformist. With her patented whiskey drenched vocal delivery echoing country music’s greatest traditionalists she is an artist who infuses her music with all the passion and conviction of someone who can give no less than her all. Born in the small town of Strasburg, Virginia, she was reared on Buck Owens, Kitty Wells, and of course, Patsy Cline, who came from the nearby “big city” of Winchester. Heading to Nashville, she signed a recording deal with Decca Records for her first major release “29 Nights” produced by Mark Wright and Michael Knox. Achieving only moderate commercial radio airplay, her sophomore effort met with Top 10 Internet success in the U.S., Great Britain, The Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland. In the year 2002, Danni was struggling to find her place in the ever changing sound of country music and commercial country radio. Her first independent release with Audium Records entitled “Divide and Conquer” produced by critically acclaimed Pete Anderson, was a step outside her previous endeavors and opened new doors in the growing Americana music scene. Later that same year Danni relocated from Nashville to Austin, Texas where she would find new management with Ray Benson’s Bismeaux Productions. Currently spending much of her time abroad, Danni continues a busy touring schedule promoting her latest album “Masquerade of a Fool”. With a straight ahead honky tonk sound, the first single, “A Quarter Over You”, reached number 1 on European country music charts. Wasting no time, she is already hard at work writing and recording new songs for her next CD release. Whether old fan or new, rest assured, there will be much more to come from Danni Leigh.
