Danielle Knibbe - Some Curious Birds

Genres: Singer/Songwriter, Music, Country
Released: Jun 22, 2016
℗ 2016 Danielle Knibbe
A kaleidoscope of feelings, gutsy vocals, and deftly crafted lyrics, blending folk, country, and roots music.

Album Notes:
Combining bittersweet vocals, aching lyrics, and indelible melodies, with the tight instrumental and vocal harmony of her small ensemble, Danielle Knibbe and her trio are making their mark on the Canadian music scene. With upright bass, two guitars, and three-part harmony, their deftly crafted songs win, and then all too often, break your heart.

Born in Ontario and raised in Alberta, Danielle Knibbe blends memories of her childhood cross-country treks with her country, folk and roots-flavoured sound. The result is a truly Canadian take on love, loneliness, hope, anguish, innocence and innocence lost.
