Interview: Danielle Todd

BackBurnerArtwork.jpegCanadian artist Danielle Todd has found success on Australian airwaves this year with her single ‘Crazy’ – and now with the new release ‘Back Burner’. Her style is eclectic while being identifiably country, and it’s all driven by her powerful voice. Todd is heading for the Tamworth Country Music Festival in January – but it won’t be her first visit to Australia.

‘I don’t remember the year,’ she says, ‘but it was a while ago.  I really just wanted to travel so I travelled over there and then I really liked it. I ended up getting like a working visa that allowed me to play gigs. But I was just playing little pubs, little hotels, RSL clubs and stuff like that, mostly around the Sydney area. And then I did travel up to Queensland. I went up the coast. I also visited Hamilton Island and Adelaide – I have some family in Adelaide. So I did as much travelling as I was able to do and then performed whenever I could when I was there. I loved living over there and experiencing it. It was just a different lifestyle altogether than my Canadian life.’

Single release: ‘Crazy’ by Danielle Todd

Danielle Todd | 1-2.jpgThe song title ‘Crazy’ is, of course, familiar to country music audiences thanks to Patsy Cline – but Canadian singer-songwriter Danielle Todd has reinterpreted the word in a completely different countrified way, creating a gloriously upbeat song that’s about being  crazy in love rather than love lost.

In ‘Crazy’ the Nashville-based Todd has created an earworm that you won’t mind having. Her instincts as a performer – which is a more-than-full-time job, with Todd paying gigs up to seven days a week – have no doubt helped her create a song that is hard to resist; it’s also clear from the vocals that she knows how to communicate through song, with a strong, joyous sound.
