Danika Smith performs a raw, timeless style of folk music with undertones of jazz and soul. She is known for her tender topics, honey stick melodies and charismatic satire. But something’s shifting.
It’s 2020, where women in music are being recognized and supported, so she feels it’s time to get experimental. Folk is heaven, no doubt, but curiosity, desire and the inner groove has unavoidably begun Danika Smith’s metamorphosis.
As a young teenager Danika garnered attention with her first recording back in 2011 via a Triple J Unearthed competition, which saw her being shortlisted as one of the 6 finalists out of 700+ submissions.
Since this first attempt at recording music, Danika concentrated on side projects and has progressively become a staple of the Melbourne music sceneSupports: Maple Glider // Grove Duo Entry: $12 Door
