“I’ve been singing for as long as I can remember doing anything. No matter what challenges I face or how hard a day it’s been, by the second song I feel a peaceful happiness.”
Danielle Hicks is a blues rock singer and songwriter based out of Savannah, Georgia.
Raised in the small town of Tifton, Georgia, Danielle Hicks began performing at age 7; singing with her father’s southern rock band and sitting in with local musicians decades older than her.
After high school, Hicks made the leap from small town to big city, relocating to New York City to attend The American Musical and Dramatic Academy and continue her career as a performer. It was during these years that Danielle developed her songwriting and singing style into a unique combination of influences. While she had been performing blues standards and classic rock for years, the New York-influence lead her into the more modern R&B and new-soul sounds of Sade as well as the sultry influence of artists like Nina Simone, Etta James, Stevie Nicks, and Bonnie Raitt.
After 10 years working as a singer, actress and studio musician, Hicks moved to Savannah, Georgia to start her own quartet and began performing regularly throughout the Southeast region, honing her style while continually writing and arranging new music. Since moving back to Georgia she has become one of the most sought out and celebrated singer-songwriters in the lowcountry.
She’s currently hard at work gigging around the Southeast and planning a full tour in support of her new album ‘Honey’. She’s joined by the amazingly talented guitarist Ben Keiser and some of Savannah’s finest musicians (Ryan Kelly, Ira Miller, Matt Fallin) –The Resistance.
