London-based singer/songwriter Danielle Morgan writes and performs with passion and attitude. Those who have seen her "live" write and talk about how they are uplifted by her original melodies, delivered with real power and honest emotion. Diverse in topic & eclectic in mood, and drawing on her strong Irish roots and London upbringing, Danielle writes about her life experiences that everyone can relate to and interpret for themselves.
Danielle graduated from the world-famous BRIT School in London. Recorded at London’s Abbey Road Studios, Danielle released her debut EP, ‘The Session’, and has not looked back since with her music widely played and streamed all around the globe.
She has composed over 100 original songs with co-writer John Merrigan, and worked with highly credited producers TheRealJonSmith, David Courtney and Nick Hook, among others.
In January 2020, Danielle focused her talents on a new musical drama “The Story of Love in the Harbour” in which she performed her compositions with a live orchestra in a stirring historical romance set in Ireland and front-line France during WW1. Despite the enforced cancellation of a UK tour, the production was adapted to an audio / radio format, achieving international airplay in 15 countries.
2020 also saw the release of her EP “The Faces of Danielle Morgan” further showing her versatility as an artist, and the year ended on a high with the release of 4 more new tracks, in her EP “Locked Down”, featuring diverse genres of rock, soul and reggae. In addition, an emotional Christmas song “Christmas Like The Old Days” was released (an updated version will be re-released in 2021). Collectively, the tracks achieved over one million streams.
2021 began with more music, and a new musical drama theatre production, “Vengeance” about the life of playwright Oscar Wilde. Featuring all-original book, songs and score, written by John and Danielle, the show has played to strong critical acclaim, and received the endorsement of the influential Oscar Wilde Society. See www.vengeancemusical.com for more information. An extended tour is planned for 2022.
Further new tracks are set for release before the end of this year, with Danielle staying loyal to her band members as live gigs and performances resume. The band members are John Merrigan (drums) / David Barbour (guitar) / Peter Rutherford (bass) / Andrew Dascalopoulos (keys & guitar) / Lucy Dee (backing vocals) / Rob McCann (harmonica). Several festival performances are already scheduled for 2022.
