“I know it’s hard to compare anybody to this superstar’s voice, but Dani has a Carrie Underwood feel, it’s really powerful”
– St. Pierre, WPOC 93.1
The past few years have been a whirlwind of hard work, hustle and accomplishment for Dani Rose. As a TV Show Host for PBS's music video program Strictly Global on MHz Networks, producer of her own music videos with distribution on national television, a solo artist supporting Grammy Award winners Leeann Rimes, Marc Cohn and Top 40's Matt Nathanson, and her original songs featured on A&E, ABC & HBO - Dani has been hard at work. Originally from Chantilly, Virginia, Dani and her family moved to Tokyo, Japan when she entered the 5th grade, and spent her formative years overseas and abroad. The family returned to Virginia when she was in High School and Dani went on to Virginia Tech for college and graduated with a Bachelors degree in English and Musical Analysis. With a passion for performing, in 2009 Dani completed perhaps one of her most entertaining accomplishments, winning the legendary NYC Amateur Night at the Apollo with a rendition of Aretha Franklin’s “Chain of Fools”. A girl that once going, never stops, Dani has been featured several times at the Sunset Sessions Radio Film & TV Showcase and has performed live on a myriad of NBC, FOX & WUSA morning news and talk programs. Her songs have been featured in film and tv with notable placements on A&E's TEACH: Tony Danza, ABC's General Hospital, and the indie film The Umbrealla Man. In 2013, her single, “Didn’t Mean it That Way,” debuted at #6 on the iTunes POP ‘Hot Tracks’ and quickly followed with notable placements on iTunes New & Noteworthy Country and iTunes Rising Stars of Country.
After relocating to Los Angeles, Dani began working with producer/writer and tv/film composer Michael Lord. Throughout 2015 they worked together on several pieces for tv movies on ION Television and On Demand, she most recently sang the end credits song for Jessica Darling's IT LIST executively produced by Debby Ryan, and the talk-tv show theme song for Hollywood Today LIVE on FOX. Shortly after singing background vocals on several tracks for Disney's movie DESCENDANTS with a soundtrack debut at #1 on Billboard, Dani signed with WME for representation.
In 2014, Dani founded the female country trio Honey County. The band started off at a clip and garnered success with a placement on the season finale of HBO's True Blood in 2014 and was quickly chosen as semi-finalists on VH1's "Make A Band Famous." Following the release of the Honey County EP in June of 2015, the single '99 Bottles' was picked as a semi-finalist in a contest advertised on CMT to open for country star Brett Eldredge and placed second in Go Country 105's 34th annual Country Showdown. Honey County has had radio airplay on Los Angeles fan favorite radio station, KCRW as well as iheartradio's WPOC 93.1. They are currently touring.
