Local musician, Danielle Juhre released her latest single on August 16th. Music has been in her blood since birth as she watched her father work alongside Charlie Daniels. Once she hit the age of 7, she was ready to make music of her own. Then she went to Berklee College to pursue singing further and soon enough, she started releasing music, going on tours and gaining fans. After success with the first single and tour, she knew it was time to delve deep and start putting together a new song. This made her go back to roots and use that to create something quite different from her previous single.
Soul music and the Motown Era have deeply influenced her music stylings, which you can hear sprinklings of it in “Nobody,” the latest single. Her first single definitely emphasizes this styling with its soulful vocals, big band instrumentals and coffeehouse tune vibe, while this one has transformed her sound into a pop powerhouse hit.
She uses soulful melodies, an upbeat instrumental and self-empowering lyrics all wrapped up into one. You can hear the influences of Amy Winehouse’s soulful voice, but this tune also has remnants of artists like Dua Lipa with the confidence boosting and love-yourself mentality pop verses. The catchy lyrics and beat will have you singing and dancing just about anywhere from on the dance floor to performing in your car.
In the song, she shares the importance of being independent and doing things for yourself. But, she also dives into the importance of letting go and moving on, fitting in well with the messages of top 40 hits at the moment. She’s not afraid of being authentic and sharing her stance on how she feels about life.
