Daniela Andrade is a 22 year old singer-songwriter from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Largely known for her stripped down acoustic covers and originals on YouTube, her videos have been viewed over 30 Million times by a faithful worldwide audience of over 300,000 fans on YouTube and 120,000 followers on Facebook. Daniela’s velvety soft but powerful voice has been compared to the likes of Cat Power and Norah Jones and some of her musical influences include Feist, Lisa Hannigan and Regina Spektor.
Some notable songs covered by Daniela include a raw acoustic performance of Radiohead’s “Creep”, which has over 3 Million views on YouTube. A stripped down rendition of Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy” reached #1 on blog curating website The Hype Machine, was featured on Songza’s popular “Blogged 50” playlist and received national television airtime on the drama series, “Suits”.
Daniela’s debut EP titled "Things We've Said" was independently released in 2012 and has since sold over 5,000 copies to over 40 different countries. In the summer of 2013, the track “Any Other Way” from the EP earned her $10,000 via a local talent contest by Edmonton’s HOT 107 FM. Soon afterwards, another $10,000 was granted to Daniela via another local contest by Lite 95.7 FM for her track “Bright Blue”.
Not yet having released a full length album, Daniela Andrade has managed to create a remarkable buzz while remaining completely independent. With a new album set to be released in early 2015, Daniela is an emerging artist to watch out for.
