Bio

Danika Smith is a singer/songwriter based on the Far North Coast of NSW. She has been a keen little singer from an early age. Piano and singing lessons at age 8 began the ball rolling and a year ago she swapped to guitar. Having picking up the guitar and realising the joy of portability, Danika performs on the streets and plays the odd gig. Her confidence as a performer has grown and this is why her songwriting has taken off. She finds that writing from experience is a good way to go.

Really pure stuff. Great voice. People who think they hate alt-country will love this.

Great follow up to 'Oh Father', it might be even stronger. You manage to make such a simple song sound really full and warm, particularly with the dreamy atmospheric touches in the background. Top shelf.
