Marie Danielle is an indie folk singer-songwriter from Harrisburg, PA who now calls the road home after a few years each in NYC and LA. Her dark and clever songwriting connects to audiences with its naked honesty about love, loss and addiction. Within a year of her first live show, Marie was touring throughout the US and Europe. Before her debut record was even released, her song ‘One of My Kind’ was featured on an episode of Showtime’s series ‘Billions.’
Marie had played her songs in private until a brush with death in a violent domestic relationship lent her the courage to reach out to an artist she greatly admires, Simone Felice. Marie sent her demos to this founding member of the internationally acclaimed Catskill Mountain based Felice Brothers, whose seminal self-titled album remains one of the most influential works of this century’s indie folk revival. Simone and Marie started a cross country collaboration when he recognized the magic of her track ‘Tinseltown’.
Soon after, Marie and her friend Christian Wargo, of the folk band Fleet Foxes, left LA for Woodstock, NY to begin recording with Simone and his production partner David Baron. What started as an EP grew into a full-length record – Hustler, featuring Felice, Wargo and even the original lineup of The Felice Brothers who back Marie up for the first single ‘Soldier’, a travelling song to which they lend their swagger. Hustler, which has been called ‘Intoxicating’ (AXS.com) and ‘Spectacular’ (Ear to The Ground Music) also includes a cinematic cover of Conor Oberst’s ‘White Shoes’.
Hustler got people paying attention. Marie is currently recording her second album at Matt Patton’s (Drive-By Truckers, Dexateens) Dial Back Sound. She is working closely with co-owner Bronson Tew who will co-produce the album with Marie. The forthcoming release will be a departure in sound and style from her earlier work. Marie assembled a band using members from the Jackson, MS band Young Valley and the end result is something bigger and darker than Hustler.
