Soon after graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design (Illustration 2010), her Dad Stu Herreid gave her an ukulele, opening an unexplored world of jazz and endless possibilities on four strings. When her family opened a music store in Roseville, CA in 2013, Dani found her purpose in life; exploring music and sharing it with the world.
Expressing her art through music, Dani has entranced audiences across the country with her velvet vocals and compassionate style of teaching. Her first album was released in 2015 entitled “Let Me Introduce Myself” and features a mix of inventive takes on modern pop songs, with a sprinkling of originals. Today she is diligently working on her next album of original songs, using events in her own journey as inspiration. One of those songs entitled “Mama you said” speaks to the angst of youth in comical prose, lamenting the parental promises of success in a world where hard work is the only route. Another original “Mon Ami”, co-written in French, has a sweet jazzy rhythm and soothing, meaningful lyrics that communicate a friendship of two people who live a world apart.
