Nashville embraces one of its freshest faces in country music with Reno, Nevada, native Dani Jack. Her first taste of the stage came when she was cast as The Little Drummer Boy at just four years old. Since then Dani’s singing and performing abilities have taken her to various venues around the world. Most notably the Brandin Iron and Fantasy Springs Resort in Southern California, AJ’s Good Time Bar, the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas and China, among many others.
Before making a move to Nashville, Dani was honing her craft as frontwoman for the Los Angeles-based country band, Country Nation, where she opened for a broad spectrum of artists including Lonestar, Jamie O’Neal, Brodie Stewart, and Stephen Wesley. Her dedication, passion, and enthusiastic attitude have propelled her as an artist in a town full of talent. She’s worked as a guest vocalist with Kenny P (The Voice, Team Gwen), Amanda Daughtry (opening act for Chris Young and Justin Moore), and Stevi Madison (guest vocalist with Keith Urban). Dani has also shared the stage with E Vega (former Ashlee Simpson keyboardist and producer for pop band R5), as well as Lisa Marie (former lead vocalist for Las Vegas show Pinup with Playmate of the Year Claire Sinclair).
Dani developed her style from a variety of nineties musical influences including Shania Twain, LeAnn Rimes, Whitney Houston, and Mariah Carey. A natural-born singer, seasoned performer, and prolific songwriter, Dani is the exception when it comes to pure talent. She’s the “Jack of all trades” with vocals reminiscent of the early Linda Ronstadt with a mix of country-blues similar to Bonnie Raitt, with the storytelling likes of Miranda Lambert. She has trained with students of vocal coach Seth Riggs, Yunga Webb and Mauli B, who have worked with Katy Perry, Fergie, Hillary Duff, and various Nickelodeon stars. Vocal coach Yunga Webb says, “Dani’s power, strength, and style put her in a league all her own. She can sing basically anything!”
In 2016, Dani released her first original music video, “Ten Tiny Toes,” a duet with fellow country singer and friend Christie Huff. The pair also worked with Katsuya “Kats” Sezaki (Musicians Institute’s 2015 Vocal Instructor of the Year) to film their cover of “Somethin’ Bad” by Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood. Fresh off the release of her debut single “Fallin’ For It” in June 2018, which was released exclusively on WSMV TODAY in Nashville, Dani introduced to fans her highly anticipated debut EP, Grace, produced by Luke Forehand (Blackbird Studios). Music blog Out from the Pine Box described the EP as “a balance between feisty and fun lyrics with seamless segues to the more sentimental and slow songs. The remaining songs on the EP explore the emotional pain that comes with a relationship coming to an end, learning to love again, and building yourself back up after falling down.”
When Dani is not focused on music, she is heavily involved in nonprofit work. She contributes her time to the Josh Powell Foundation, which provides tangible support to patients, survivors, and loved ones facing sarcoma cancer. She also dedicates her free time to the Espere Community Counseling Center, a nonprofit mental health center in Haiti that is dedicated to strengthening individuals, families, and communities by providing counseling, community outreach support, education, and hope.
