about

Anyone lucky enough to live in Wales is likely to have heard the absolutely beautiful voice and life enriching songs of Danielle Lewis. Since releasing her debut EP in July 2013, Paper Hearts, Danielle has been live guest on three of their S4C TV programmes with more in the pipeline, been playlisted on BBC Radio Cymru, featured as Artist of the Week on BBC Radio Wales and invited onto BBC Wales’ Emerging Talent Horizons Project for 2016. 'Horizons/ Gorwelion is a scheme delivered by BBC Cymru Wales in partnership with Arts Council Wales to develop new, independent contemporary music in Wales. They have this to say about Danielle : ‘There is an invigorating, fresh purity to Danielle Lewis’ music. Her wonderfully clear voice sounds as effortless and uncontrived as Karen Carpenter’s sounds... her songs are timeless folk pop songs that have the potential to appeal across generations, with a similar melodic nouse to Taylor Swift or Lucy Rose’.

A choice selection of prime festival slots are offered with this opportunity including The Great Escape and Festival No. 6 as well as a coveted recording of two songs at Maida Vale in the Autumn. Two tracks from her bilingual second EP, Dreams Grow, which was self released June 2015, were used on a ‘Visit Wales’ online campaign.
BBC Radio 3’s The Verb broadcast two live performances from Hay Festival with tracks from her second EP on June 3rd 2016 and Ian McMillan was glowing in his praise, as he introduced Danielle at the opening and closing of the show.
Danielle is published by Charlotte Church’s company Bounce Publishing and is releasing Anywhere is Home on Folkstock Records, on July 4th 2016.
''Danielle’s unique music does something very rare in the singer-songwriter world – she exudes happiness and joy, her songs are light, her smile fills the room. She has a rare and organic natural warmth that shines through the music. Where most wallow, she soars.” – Bethan Elfyn, Project Manager Horizons & Specialist Music Presenter BBC Radio Wales
Anywhere is Home' came about from listening to Jack Johnson's warming song 'I Got You' one afternoon at home in New Quay which made me reminisce about my experiences of touring & performing across Australia at the age of 19 to moving from my childhood home on the West Wales coast to the big city lights of Cardiff to pursue my music career.
There's a sense of exploration and anticipation in the verses about keeping positive following your dreams and 'always do what you love', from that good things will come.
The tone of longing in the title hook 'Anywhere is home' is the pinnacle of the song bringing home the message, that no matter where we are it's not the place or things that make home but it's the people we surround ourselves with along the journey.

Track Name: Anywhere is Home
Sail away into the great escape,
Don't need bricks, running water,
Don't need any slate,
As long as I'm with you,

We'll keep the sun in the sky,
And a heart full of love,
Friends full of smiles,
And faith from above,
As long as I'm with you,
Anywhere is home,

Anywhere is home,
Anywhere is home,
Anywhere is home,

A life is a canvas we can paint what we want,
Make it fun, make it happy,
Always do what you love,
The sky is always blue,

Each step we take we'll leave it all up to fate,
Good health, love and happiness we'll always create,
As long as you're my view,
Anywhere is home,
Anywhere is home,
Anywhere is home,
Anywhere is home,

We'll pack a bag full of hope and wear our hearts on our sleeve,
Run through the rain, we've got everything we need,
A life free of worry, we'll always be happy,
As long as I'm with you,

Anywhere is home,
Anywhere is home,
Anywhere is home,
Anywhere is home,
Anywhere is home
Track Name: I'll Wait
Just like the tide you'd been and gone,
Just like the sunset lost in the horizon,
As I felt the wind come running round,
It took my heart right from the ground,

Chorus-
For you I'll wait,
For you I'll wait,
I'll wait,

Bring in the rain, I watch it fall,
I can't resist what finds us all,
As I watch us fade into the night,
Here comes the smile from the sweet sunrise,

For you I'll wait,
For you I'll wait,
I'll wait,

Ooohh...

For you I'll wait,
For you I'll wait,
I'll wait
