Danielle Miraglia, Jen Kearney and Amy Petty
Danielle Miraglia comes armed with a strong steady thumb on an old Gibson, an infectious stomp-box rhythm and harmonica with tunes ranging from heart-felt to socially conscious that will move both your heart and hips. Her latest "All My Heroes Are Ghosts," released with her band Danielle M and The Glory Junkies touches on a lot of what might be on your mind these days from the loss of so many musical heroes to our collective anxieties on All On Fire, and more.. The music itself blends influences of some of Miraglias own musical heroes - The Rolling Stones, Prince, Janis Joplin along with Danielle's lyrical ability to explore human nature at its best and worst. 2019 NEW ENGLAND MUSIC AWARD WINNER - "Female Performer of the Year." Nominated 2018 "Blues Artist of the Year" by Boston Music Awards!
"Straddling the line where folk/roots meets rock/blues, Miraglia has a voice that can go from a raspy come-hither purr to an Etta James-esque powerhouse belt, although she may be best known for her lead thumb a heavy, thumping strike on her Gibson thats backdrop percussion in itself." - Lauren Daley, The Boston Globe
