Nashville embraces one of its freshest faces in country music with Reno, Nevada, native Dani Jack. Her first taste of the stage came when she was cast as The Little Drummer Boy at just four years old. Since then Dani’s singing and performing abilities have taken her to various venues around the world, most notably the Bluebird Cafe and Tootsie's Orchid Lounge in Nashville, the Brandin Iron and Fantasy Springs Resort in Southern California, and the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas and China, among many others.
Fresh off the release of her debut single "Fallin' For It" in June 2018, which was released exclusively on WSMV TODAY in Nashville, Dani introduced to fans her highly anticipated debut EP, Grace, produced by Luke Forehand (Blackbird Studios). Music blog Out from the Pine Box described the EP as “a balance between feisty and fun lyrics with seamless segues to the more sentimental and slow songs. The remaining songs on the EP explore the emotional pain that comes with a relationship coming to an end, learning to love again, and building yourself back up after falling down.” (Read the full review here.) Variety Beat's Jencita Vargas says, "From Patsy Cline to Carrie Underwood, there’s nothing she can’t sing. Her vocals shine through in each track and offer so much variety. It’s not just the same sound set to different music, but each track is truly a different experience." (Read the full review here.)
Her most recent project was the music video for "Hurt," which was released during Sexual Assault Awareness Month (April 2019) to benefit Espere Community Counseling Center's Roots of Courage program, designed to support survivors of sexual assault in Haiti. Her music video release party raised over $1,000 to help launch the program. She is set to release her next single, "Dance," in October, produced by Chris Condon (Billy Ray Cyrus) and Leigh Houison. Inspired by her best friend’s journey after losing her husband to cancer, Dani and cowriter Craig Lackey are honored to be throwing a benefit for the Josh Powell Foundation to celebrate the release of the single.
Before making a move to Nashville, Dani was honing her craft as frontwoman for the Los Angeles-based country band, Country Nation, where she opened for a broad spectrum of artists including Lonestar, Jamie O’Neal, Brodie Stewart, and Stephen Wesley. Her dedication, passion, and enthusiastic attitude have propelled her as an artist in a town full of talent. She’s worked as a guest vocalist with Kenny P (The Voice), Amanda Daughtry (opening act for Chris Young and Justin Moore), and Stevi Madison (guest vocalist with Keith Urban). Dani has also shared the stage with E Vega (former Ashlee Simpson keyboardist and producer for pop band R5), as well as Lisa Marie Smith (former lead vocalist for Las Vegas show Pinup with Playmate of the Year Claire Sinclair).
Dani developed her style from a variety of nineties musical influences including Shania Twain, LeAnn Rimes, Whitney Houston, and Mariah Carey. A natural-born singer, seasoned performer, and prolific songwriter, Dani is the exception when it comes to pure talent. She’s the “Jack of all trades” with vocals reminiscent of the early Linda Ronstadt with a mix of country-blues similar to Bonnie Raitt, with the storytelling likes of Miranda Lambert. She has trained with students of vocal coach Seth Riggs, Yunga Webb and Mauli B, who have worked with Katy Perry, Fergie, Hillary Duff, and various Nickelodeon stars. Vocal coach Yunga Webb says, “Dani’s power, strength, and style put her in a league all her own. She can sing basically anything!”
When Dani is not focused on music, she is heavily involved in nonprofit work. She hosts an annual musical benefit for the Espere Community Counseling Center, a nonprofit mental health center in Haiti that is dedicated to strengthening individuals, families, and communities by providing counseling, community outreach support, education, and hope. She helped fundraise for the launch of their Roots of Courage campaign, which supports sexual assault survivors in Haiti. She also contributes her time to the Josh Powell Foundation, which provides tangible support and inspiration to patients, survivors, and loved ones facing sarcoma cancer.
