Having been exposed to a range of music genres as a child, ranging from 60s and 70s rock n roll, to blues, and being encouraged by her father to take up acoustic guitar, it was clear to see that Dani Wilde was already well on her way to becoming somewhat of a special talent.
Dani's first break came when she was asked to sing backing vocals for famous 1960s British Folk singer Maddie Prior. Maddie was so stunned that she asked Dani to support her at The Wyvern Theatre, Swindon. The concert sold out and the audience were more than impressed by Dani's passionate vocal delivery and finger picking blues guitar style.
2003 saw Dani arrive in Brighton and hook up with bassist Pete Warren. Within her first year here, Dani and Pete played large venues such as The Concorde 2 and by 2004, Dani's success had further increased, headlining at the Brighton Live Festival, where she caught the attention of a scout from Island Universal. Rave reviews followed the gigs in National press, such as The Times. One of these reviews followed a performance at the Birmingham ICC (International Conference Centre) to an audience of 1500 people. In November 2004, preceded by an interview, Dani and Pete performed on BBC Southern Counties FM. The slot went so well, that the station printed an article on the BBC website, and invited the duo back again in 2005.
2007 sees Dani gigging with Pete, and also Will 'Harmonica' Wilde, at venues throughout the UK, and looking optimistically to the future. They have also performed at some bigger venues such as The Royal Albert Hall, supporting Jools Holland and Vibes in The Vines Festival with Gary Moore and are now in the process of signing to RUF records in Germany, so watch out USA and Europe, they're coming your way!!!!
