California native, Danni Cassette, got their start in church and learning from their musical family. Danni’s biggest influence was their grandfather who also taught them how to record their vocals to tape. Danni, then, became the tape bandit!

At 8 years old, Danni’s voice was recognized very early as they started singing in the adult and teen choir. With years of choir and singing background for other artists.
