Pop/soul songstress Dani Moz lends listeners her heart and draws them in with each emotionally charged melody she sings. A powerful lead vocalist, songwriter, YouTube personality and recording artist, Dani's years of musical training and experience led to her pursuit of a music career in Los Angeles, where she is currently performing and writing material for her second album, and is now a contestant on the sixth season of the Emmy Award-winning show, The Voice, on NBC.
Before making the move to the West Coast, Dani lived in Boston and took the city's music scene by storm. She released her debut EP in 2010, and between her original projects, solo performances and years as lead singer for live cover band Hot Mess, Dani rocked the stages of premier live music venues, including The Middle East, Bell in Hand Tavern, Hennessy's, The Hooley House, Precinct, Lizard Lounge, Cantab Lounge, The Whiskey Priest and more.
Born in Albany, NY and raised in the neighboring town of Delmar, music played an important role in Dani's life from a young age, with early influences including artists such as Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, Billy Joel and Elton John. At age seven, Dani began her love affair with the piano and later became inspired by female singer/songwriters such as Fiona Apple and Sarah McLachlan and their ability to flawlessly support their voices with the instrument. The piano remains the driving force of Dani's songwriting today.
Growing up, Dani auditioned for and became a member of every school band, choral group and musical theater production possible, extending into her education at Marist College as well. Additionally, Dani gained the support and attention of her community as she competed in numerous local talent competitions. She won the title of "Albany Idol" in fall 2007 and performed the National Anthem at the opening NFL Giants vs. Jets game of the season. Dani also became runner up in local singing/songwriting competition, "Capital Region's Got Talent," which launched her songwriting career and led to her performances with local bands at venues such as Albany's Alive at Five, Revolution Hall in Troy, Vapor Night Club and Horseshoe Inn Bar in Saratoga and more.
