Born in Rome-Italy, Daniela sparks the imagination to all who listen. Her vocal stylings are inspired by the great jazz vocalists - Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughn.
Raised in New York, much of her training and experience had been with such jazz notables: Ed Thigpen, Barry Harris, Andy Simpkins, John Hammond and the late-great Lester Bass.
Daniela has also been seen and heard on Film and Television on such shows as the Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno and Arsenio Hall. Her vocal talents can also be heard on Lexus, Blockbuster Video, Timex, Bank Of Ohio w/James Earl Jones and many more. Also, live performances with David Lee Roth, Patty Austin, Jackson Browne and Patrice Rushen.
She released her first CD “Daniela Sings” recorded at the famous “Capitol Records” in Hollywood CA with the legendary Al Schmitt. “Daniela Sings” was cinsidered for a “Grammy” in 2009. The “Los Angeles Music Awards” also nominated songs from the CD in two catergories. Not bad for a first release! Featured on the CD - Joe Porcaro on drums, Jim Hughart on bass & John Chiodini on guitar creating a “world-class” jazz trio which Daniela continues to perform with.
Stay tuned to this wonderful musical talent!
