Have you experienced Bjork Digital? @laphil @bjork #bjorkdigital 

It is a unique artistic exhibit with a series of experiences that you have to see to believe. The imagery is incredible.  How do we describe it?  Perfectly Bjork!  

I feel like I visited an unknown galaxy far away.  Let me know what you think in the comments below once you go and check out her new Virtual Reality exhibit at The Reef on Broadway near Downtown Los Angeles. 

Are you Coachella ready?

Bishop Briggs is!  She just tore it up at El Rey and as the balloons floated among the crowd it was obvious she’s going to bring the energy to Coachella big time. 


With the release of her next project, it’s exciting to hear to speak about the small and mid size venues she used to play throughout LA before she grew to hit these big stages. Here’s a few snippets of the sold out concert in case you missed the party!


Big thank you to @IndieJamsLA and #MeredithLockwood for this amazing experience!

Michelle Obama on SOUL MUSIC and on BEING GREAT! (Message from THE WHITE HOUSE)

“Embrace whatever makes you unique, even if it makes other people uncomfortable….Take some risks…Work your butt off…work it until your butt comes off.” – Michelle Obama

The White House gets down too! The First Lady shares stories of Melissa Etheridge, Patti LaBelle, Janelle Monae and more people who bare their soul.

Have a beautiful week!

Love,

Are the 90’s coming back already?

I do believe so!  Not only is more vibey R&B surfacing, I am also seeing trends of the 90’s fashion and hair styling returning.  Remember baby hair gelled to the scalp in little swirls and dark lipstick?! Takes me back to Nia Long and Love Jones the movie.  Confession…I kind of LOVE to dance and sing 90’s music…really though..like a lot.

CHECK OUT THIS FASHION.  90’s with a twist!

The album, the album!  My first solo album is still in the works and I am still brainstorming an album name as well.  In the meantime, love to stay inspired by checking out fashion, culture, indie music.  I’m really feeling Solange’s Saint Heron collaborative music release under her new label Saint Records.  Read more about Solange’s label in Billboard’s Exclusive Interview.

Great music on the horizon.  Stay tuned by joining the mailing list here.

Love it, or hate it? The Irony of Beyonce’s Album Release + Rolling Stone Tests R. Kelly

Danielle W Carter at The Boys & Girls Club Charity Art Event, Santa Monica

Have a great weekend!  

Do you love it, or hate it?  Hot topics…

  • NBC’s Californians  A blast from the past for a little chuckle!  Ever had a conversation about traffic in the Los Angeles?  CLICK HERE for a “knee slapper.”  
  • Beyonce’s album release is all the rage because she DID NOT promote it.  She let everyone else do the talking starting at 12AM on Friday the 13th.  As a major artist not promoting your album is a big deal!
  • The irony is that indie artists have been dropping albums with no promotion for decades with no comparable press reaction.  As an emerging artist, is it possible to top that release?  It has yet to be seen but we can focus on making quality music and letting it go viral online.
  • What If You Don’t Like Beyonce’s Album?”  Basically,  you’ll be hooked once you watch the videos and take a second listen.  The buzz and sales growth of this album is undeniable, especially in this evolving music climate.
  • R. Kelly sings about dolphins and sub sandwiches on the spot in this Rolling Stone interview Improvises “Sex Dolphin,” “Italian Hero Sandwich of Love” Parental Discretion Advised  
  • There are some things in life that you just can’t take too seriously.  At the end of the day, life should be fun!  Love the process.  R. Kelly (no matter how you feel about him today) finds the fun in improvising.  He is given four random topics to write about on the spot.  A reminder that there are no rules.

As many of you know, we are in the studio making the first studio album!  So grateful to everyone who joined VIP thus far to support and help make this happen!  We are uncovering a unique fusion of sound for the Dani W Project, including Funk Rock, Hip Pop, and more.  Excited to share this project with you!
