Dani Doucette

“Taking influences from her musical family, Dani fell in love with music as a child and started singing and songwriting at the young age of six. In 2020, Dani signed with MDC Music and began to make a name for herself in the Toronto music scene by performing at various drive-in concerts, live-streamed performances, and a host of digital/live hybrid showcases during the pandemic. She released the singles “On My Mind” and “Selfish,” and in 2021 released “Craved,” “Dead in The Water,” and was a featured artist and co-writer on the Soundhaven song “Sugar Free”. Dani released her debut EP Run With Me on January 14th via MDC Music and all streaming platforms”. 


When did you know you wanted to be a musician?

I came out of the womb with my toes tapping. Lol. Since I was a little girl!!!!!


Are you trained? How did you develop your skills?

I’ve taken some lessons, and also been singing in bands since I was 14. My writing began early at 6. Time developed me, and dedication to learning my authentic artistry.


Who are some of your biggest musical influences?

To be honest I don’t listen to much music. I am nose down in writing. However, anytime I see live music I’m inspired even if it isn’t my genre.


How would you describe your sound?

I would describe it as a cross between Dua Lipa, Halsey, and Leona Lewis.


What’s your favourite tune in your repertoire and why?

‘100%’, listen to the message and you will know why. We need more positive messages in music.


What can audiences expect from one of your live shows?

A LOT of energy, and connection!


Where can we find your music?

All streaming platforms and YouTube.
