The O&W Acoustic Stage
Top of the Park opens with a gorgeous set of experimental jazz and soul with a lofi approach from Ann Arbor’s Dani Darling. An upbeat, radiant singer/songwriter and self proclaimed “music nerd,” she grew up in a trio of musically gifted triplets exploring opera, singing in church, and harmonizing over covers together. After a turn with a reggae band, she’s now solo singing original songs that marry her love of poetry and music, aiming to transport listeners with mystical imagery and arrive at “when you get lost in a song, and a moment just becomes so meaningful.” This is a versatile stylist. Hear influences of opera, Frank Sinatra, Marvin Gaye, Billie Holiday, and Erykah Badu. Look for her songs on Soundcloud and her solo project SoulGalaxyGirl out this fall. A highlight for sure will be her sisters joining her for part of the set.
