2017 Performer

Danielle Lewis

Danielle Lewis enchants the audience at TEDxCardiff with her beautiful, soul-filling music.

Anyone lucky enough to live in Wales is likely to have heard the absolutely beautiful voice and life enriching songs of Danielle Lewis. Since releasing her debut EP in July 2013, Paper Hearts, Danielle has been a live guest on four of their S4C TV programmes with more in the pipeline, been playlisted on BBC Radio Cymru and featured as Artist of the Week on BBC Radio Wales. Two tracks from her bilingual second EP, Dreams Grow, which was self released in June 2015, were used on a ‘Visit Wales’ advert campaign.

2016 saw Danielle Lewis being invited onto BBC Wales’ Emerging Talent Horizons Project for 2016 developing new, independent contemporary music in Wales and sole female artist among the 12 acts chosen. Danielle played prime festival slots at The Great Escape, Truck festival and Festival No. 6 as well as a recording session at Maida Vale Studios in November 2016.

BBC Radio 3’s The Verb broadcast two live performances from Hay Festival with tracks from her second EP on June 3rd 2016 and Ian McMillian was glowing in his praise, as he introduced Danielle at the opening and closing of the show.
Danielle’s 3rd EP ‘FLY’ is out now on Folkstock Records which features songs co-written with Richard Llewellyn from ‘Paper Aeroplanes’ and proudly funded by Arts Council of Wales.

“Danielle’s unique music does something very rare in the singer-songwriter world – she exudes happiness and joy, her songs are light, her smile fills the room.” – Bethan Elfyn, BBC Radio Wales
