Dan’Nelle is an R&B/Soul singer, born and raised in Oakland, CA. Singing since the age of five; she has been blessed with a powerhouse Mezzo-Soprano vocal range and an animated personality to go along with it. She got her start in music singing in choirs at school and church.
Dan’Nelle’s love for music quickly surfaced to the forefront during her freshmen year of high school where she sang Destiny’s Child emotions in the school talent show tearing the house down! At that moment Dan’Nelle fell in love with being on stage!
Dan’Nelle underwent what she would call a soul epiphany where she realized her passion for Retro Soul/Vocal Jazz genre. She began singing covers of Jazz Standards and developing a more soulful sound for her vocal repertoire. She has always felt a connection to music of the past and feels as if her soul was born in a different era; as if she has "been here before" as her grandmother would say.
She calls her blend of unique sounds and intertwined genres, eclectic soul music.
