Danielle Stech-Homsy

Danielle Stech Homsy was born into visions and questions. With a gay Syrian painter and a Ukrainian flamenco dancer for parents, peculiar circumstance and mysterious blessings were the norm, laying the foundation for the peculiar and mysterious artistic expression that would eventually come. Danielle's songwriting reflects a vast scope of influence from techno to traditional folk to early and contemporary classical, drawing on literature as well as music, from ancient to avant, and incorporating elements of chance. Her crystalline vocals, delicately strummed baritone ukulele and found sonic elements evoke the strange delight of a dream where the dreamer's authority is always in question. In her own words, ?it is music that wants to listen as much as be heard." Danielle has performed and recorded with a variety of artists, including Tim Fite, Devendra Banhart, CocoRosie, Tarantula A.D., Larry Yes, and the Art of Flying. She is a part of the French/International collective the Black and White Skins, and her song "Everyone is Someone's" was released this year on a compilation of the same title. Her self-produced album A Bride's Guide to Waiting Music is an art object inside and out. An extended re-vision of the Bride?s Guide is set for a fall release on Gnomonsong Records? initiated by Devendra Banhart and Vetiver?s Andy Cabic.
