Backstage at Nola’s featuring Danielle W. Carter and The Sounds of Soul

Also, we have new pictures from the NolasLA show!  LAKMG, a fully staffed and very driven artist development team based on Los Angeles, presented the first Soul and RnB Indie Express event at Nola‘s Los Angeles featuring my band, Danielle W. Carter and the Sounds of Soul.  They really took great care to make sure my band and I were positioned for an excellent show.  They even arranged for a post show interview with local publicist Jerica Williams.

My band was proud to kick off the evening with five original songs!  Now is a fine time to introduce these talented musicians.  Drum roll please….Chris Lee on the keys,  Chuksingh on guitar, Melony Varnado on supporting vocals, Howard Brodwin on drums and Eric Frazier on bass.  This was the very first time performing together as a full band.  I feel honored and grateful everyday to collaborate with such talent.  Big hugs and many thanks!

SET LIST
Find Another Way – Written by: Danielle W. Carter
The Other Room – Written with Anthony Bowman
Talking to Love – Written with Sophie Ilys

How time flies! Show is over and now I am sitting at a small coffee counter overlooking 43rd Street and 9th Avenue in the Big Apple. Taking a careful sip of my steamy mug, I watch thousands of shoes scurry down the worn cemented streets. Sometimes I’m amazed by the simple fact that it is so easy to pick up and leave one city for another, immersed in a brand new rhythm. It feels like a fresh start, or maybe what having a new identity would be like. All of the things that I “had to do” but didn’t have enough time to get to don’t seem as urgent when I step outside of my bubble. There are so many places I’m naturally drawn to that I know I must visit like the UK, Argentina, Peru, etc…Where do you want to go? There are definitely more adventures with my name on it. What could be waiting for you?

SINGLE REVIEW

“Danielle Carter’s latest single, “Don’t Torture Yourself (Enough)” is described as ambient soul, and the moniker fits.”

Interview excerpt: What are your views about where the music industry is heading in your community, or on a global level?:

“I am learning and discovering where the music industry is headed every day. Overall, we have trended toward a high tech and high touch society. We’ve seen a wealth of creativity through the web–such as virtual concerts and youtube artist sensations–which present more alternatives to major label deals…As media continues to broaden the access to local music on a global scale, the craving for authenticity and raw talent grows stronger. ”
