LA Music Review | Art, stories and advice
Sophisticated, genuine, and full of fireworks!
Hi DANIELA, welcome to LA Music Review! Tell us a little bit about you and your art/music.
London-based independent singer and songwriter DANIELA shows a lifelong
dedication to music. Her songwriting delves into themes like personal strength, relationships, and the evolving narratives of life. She takes influence from neo-soul, jazz, pop, and Italian music, creating a unique and genuine sound.
Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this project?
Released on June 30, 2023. Rooted in personal history, the single pays homage to the women of Daniela’s family who have played a pivotal role in shaping her life journey from growing up in Italy to building a new life in London. Grandmothers, mothers, sisters and aunties, these women have woven a tapestry of support and creativity, leaving a lasting imprint on Daniela’s artistic expression.
Drawing inspiration from the remarkable female composer Barbara Strozzi, this song is a hymn to all women—celebrating their strength, resilience, and stories. It pays tribute to their roots, journeys, challenges, and triumphs while echoing the importance of acknowledging female musicians and composers, shedding light on the role of women in the music industry.
What is your vision for this project? What lessons would you like to impart with your audience?
Sisterhood is a significant theme in this song. It goes beyond familial bonds and relates to strong connections and support shared among women, fostering a sense of unity, empowerment, and understanding.
Through the stories of the women in my family and inspired by the legacy of Barbara Strozzi’s music, I hope this song would encourage women to break barriers, find their voices, and leave their mark on the world.

What is your favorite part of this body of work?
The segment of the song that resonates with me the most is the spoken word section, which goes:
Follow the river upstream, my daughter. It will lead to a sacred place, we call it: “The House of Water” This passage offers redemption—how one faces the struggles then find grace and peace afterward. The House of Water represents the women in my family and the extended network of sisterhood born from it. It is sacred.
Future releases? Upcoming events?
There are two more songs waiting in the pipeline for 2023! I’m always working with Ricky Farguson as a producer! I can’t wait to share them with you!
