Danielle Durack

Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, Danielle Durack emerged onto the indie-rock music scene with a refreshingly earnest and unpretentious sound. A true child of 2000’s pop, Durack’s music has always boasted saccharine hooks, streamlined songwriting, and a penchant for the dramatic. Durack’s true breakthrough would come in the form of 2019’s Bashful, landing her song “Sunshine” a spot on Spotify’s "New Music Friday" playlist, and sending her on a summer tour with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.

In early 2021, Durack released No Place – a self-professed breakup record and a towering achievement, both in its lyrical honesty and its musical ambition. No Place is Danielle Durack at her most refined and focused; it is both the most vulnerable and the most poised she has ever been on the record. Propelled by its standout singles – the fuzzy and sarcastic “Broken Wings” and the slow-burning “Eggshells” – the album drew the attention of Pitchfork, NPR, Uproxx, among other prominent indie music outlets. Danielle Durack is rapidly solidifying as a must-know name if you care about indie rock’s next gen.
