We are thrilled that the Indie Folk-Rock duo Danny and Caroline are joining the line-up for our second “Songs for a Cause” event on November 15 at the Katonah Village Library in Westchester County, NY.
Danny and Caroline, based in New York, are blessed with huge talent and potential. They have two short EP's available and their first full-length album comes out TODAY November 6, 2016. Download it here.
Danny and Caroline's sound has evolved tremendously over years of writing and touring together. Teaming up with producer Wil Farr, of Hurrah! A Bolt of Light, has taken their songs to new heights. The upcoming album, titled "Beauty and the Beard" is one you won't want to miss!
Their track "Better Days" gained the duo some international exposure when it was featured in a Coca-Cola advertisement promoting the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
Danny and Caroline are playing Saturday Nov. 7 at the New Fairfield Coffee House. Bring a picnic (indoor) and a bottle of wine and you’ll have yourself a lovely evening!
Here’s a little window into Danny and Caroline - who they are and their songwriting lives.
1) Why are you singer-songwriters?
We both feel that in a way songwriting chose us. As young kids we were exposed to music, and chose to make it a big part of our lives as we got older. We were fortunate enough to be accepted into a songwriting program that helped us nurture out abilities. Collaborating has helped us find our identity as songwriters.
2) What are your major influences? (an oldie but a goodie)
Musically our biggest influences are. Ben Folds, Kings of Convenience. Our parents have always had a huge influence on our career choice. They have always encouraged us, and supported us along the way.
3) What social causes move you?
Helping under-privileged children, and Anti-Bullying. As someone who was severely bullied and found solace in arts, I know music can really make a difference.
4) Tell us about a few of the favorite songs you've written.
We will always remember the first song we wrote together. In a lot of ways it has been our biggest success - it was featured in a Coca Cola advertisement in Russia. For us it marks the beginning of something special.
5) If you weren't singer-songwriters, what would you be?
Danny would own his own music school. Currently Danny teaches through Music in Chappaqua to help fund our musical endeavors. Caroline would have been working in the film industry. Instead, she films and edits music videos to help promote the songs we write.
