Danielle Miraglia – Bright Shining Stars
Label: VizzTone Label Group
Bright Shining Stars Coming October 16th on Vizztone Records!
Explosively gifted Boston-based singer, songwriter and guitarist Danielle Miraglia (Murr-AH-lee-a) has been smashing pigeonholes and blowing away audiences and critics for some time now. Known for her performances as an acoustic solo artist and with her band the Glory Junkies, Danielle straddles the worlds of Folk/Blues and Roots/Americana with style, intelligence, and impact. She has been compared to Bonnie Raitt, Rory Block, and a Lucinda Williams with a sense of humor.
Danielle is currently nominated for the 2020 Boston Music Award for “Blues Artist of the Year,” won the 2019 New England Music Award for “Female Performer of the Year,” and was nominated for a 2015 Boston Music Award for “Singer-Songwriter of the Year.”
She was also nominated with her band the Glory Junkies for 2018 and 2019 Boston Music Awards for “Blues Artist of the Year.”
Danielle’s new solo acoustic album on the VizzTone label, highlights her bluesy one-woman band sound, including some originals and covers paying homage to influences like Big Bill Broonzy, Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin and more. She is joined on selected tracks by guitarist Peter Parcek, viola player Laurence Scudder and harmonica player Richard Rosenblatt.
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
“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
