Danielle Miraglia sings the blues! She comes armed with a strong steady thumb on an old Gibson, an infectious stomp-box rhythm and harmonica with tunes ranging from heart-felt to socially conscious that will move both your heart and hips. Her latest "All My Heroes Are Ghosts," released with her band Danielle M and The Glory Junkies, touches on a lot of what might be on your mind these days – the loss of so many musical heroes on the title track, the chaos of "fake news" on "Monster," the general sense that the world is on fire on "All On Fire," the more personal with the death of a complicated loved one on "Guilt Trip" and more. The music itself blends influences of some of Miraglia's own musical heroes - The Rolling Stones, Prince, Janis Joplin along with Danielle's lyrical ability to explore human nature at its best and worst. Danielle was nominated for a 2015 Boston Music Award for Singer-Songwriter of the Year.
"Straddling the line where folk/roots meets rock/blues, Miraglia has a voice that can go from a raspy come-hither purr to an Etta James-esque powerhouse belt, although she may be best known for her lead thumb — a heavy, thumping strike on her Gibson that's backdrop percussion in itself." - Lauren Daley - The Boston Globe
"Danielle Miraglia is a treasure! She captivated her audience from the first few notes she played until the end of her second encore. She is charming, talented, a total professional, and completely down to earth. I can't wait to bring her back next year! She is always welcome on our stage."
- Barron Chandler, Director, Narberth Summer Concert Series
"With hints of Bonnie Raitt and Rory Block, Danielle Miraglia is carving out a new place all her own in the music world. Simply put, she is stunning…with a voice that just comes out of nowhere. She animates a stage and commands the rapt attention of all within earshot. This is one artist to watch, she is going to be huge."
- Jamey Reilly, The PSALM Salon
