A New Jersey native who has come to call Australia home, Danielle Deckard is a singer/songwriter based in Sydney. Her charming debut EP End of the World, released in 2015, is an undeniable gem showcasing Danielle’s diverse indie-pop style, infusing lush melodies with a rich instrumentation of piano, strings, horn sections, synths and even some well-placed banjo to boot. This musicality and creative nuance speaks to Deckard’s quality as an accomplished musician and songwriter. A graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Danielle is a multi-instrumentalist with an impressive list of accolades and awards to her name. She is a recipient of the ASCAP Bart Howard Songwriting Scholarship, and in 2014 took out the top prize for the Unsigned Only Songwriting Competition. She also received an honourable mention in the International Songwriting Competition—a highly competitive event judged by some guy named Tom Wai ts, no less.
Danielle’s lyrics and exquisite vocals impart dark undertones that act as a counterweight to the brighter pop melodies, reminiscent of Ingrid Michaelson and Sara Bareilles. Like a bouquet of heartache, her music breathes in the blues and exhales a kind of sweet melancholia. Through her lyrics, Danielle neither laments nor shrugs off the pains of heartache and loneliness, and instead imbues a hard-fought resilience with the longing for a sense of herself in the world. By this, Danielle’s words are at once deeply personal and universal, unguarded and powerful.
