Michigan’s newest lo-fi soul artist Dani Darling (aka Soul Galaxy Girl) is set to make her live New York City debut at the next Uptown Soul Lounge showcase event this Friday, April 26 at The West End Lounge. Before then, the angelic singer/songwriter shares “Stranger“, the haunting new single from her forthcoming debut EP Nocturne.
“‘Stranger’ was initially the start of a jazzy musical I planned to write with a friend. The idea was to create a modern version of a jazz standard like Cole Porter or Gershwin; something Nat King Cole would sing. It started with exploring the concept of growing apart from someone you were once very close to and ‘Stranger’ was the first (and only) song I wrote for that project; it kind of took on a life of its own.It was the result of a live recording in one take.” –Dani Darling
