“Dani Jack has one of those voices that makes you sit up in your chair and take notice.” After seeing Dani perform on Broadway in downtown Nashville, Ann Walczak of Edible Nashville shared the sentiment that is often voiced after hearing the bold sound coming from “the cute brunette in a leather jacket.” Dani’s 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, from Los Angeles to Nashville and all the way to Haiti and China.
After moving to Nashville in 2016, Dani immersed herself in the collaborative community that was now her home. When she had a collection of songs she truly believed in, cowritten with some of the best the city had to offer, Jack launched a Kickstarter to fund her debut EP. 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 (Travis Tritt, 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.” Variety Beat's Jencita Vargas said, "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."
With director and videographer Lexy Burke, she released the music video for "Hurt" 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. She released the video during the Second Annual Acoustic Healing Benefit, raising over $1,000 to help launch the program. She has continued to host this benefit, with the Fifth Annual Acoustic Healing Benefit being held in April 2022 at City Winery.
Her follow up single, "Dance," was released in October 2019, produced by Chris Condon (Billy Ray Cyrus) and Leigh Houison. Inspired by a close friend’s journey after losing her husband to cancer, the release party raised over $1,000 to benefit the Josh Powell Foundation, which seeks to empower the mindsets of newly diagnosed sarcoma cancer patients. The music video, directed again by Lexy Burke, was released in April 2020 and featured local dancers, Getfone Vongkhamchanh and Matumbe, with choreography by Cailin Manning.
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. It was this attitude that landed her a spot as the opener for Cirque Musica on the last ten days of their arena tour in December 2019, taking her all over the southwest including The Theatre at Grand Prairie in Texas and the Vivint Smart Home Arena in Utah.
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 powerhouse Linda Ronstadt with a mix of country-blues similar to Bonnie Raitt, with the storytelling likes of Miranda Lambert. Says Vargas, "From Patsy Cline to Carrie Underwood, there’s nothing she can’t sing.”
