Bio

Danika Smith performs a raw, timeless style of folk music with undertones of jazz and soul. She is known for her tender topics, honey stick melodies and charismatic satire. But something's shifting. It's 2019, where women in music are being recognized and supported, so she feels it's time to get experimental. Folk is heaven, no doubt, but curiosity, desire and the inner groove has unavoidably begun Danika Smith's metamorphosis.

Danika pries loose a sliver of an opening in her chainmail attire to let you in on this cosy, cloistered gem of a song.

Truly love Danika Smith's brand of soulful folk. Dark and curious, it moves you with its textures and complexities driving a sense of wonder and makes you feel the true weight of the armour she sings about pressing down on your soul. The chromatically descending line Smith sings half way through breaks me every time. SO GOOD.
