'Absolutely brilliant' Charlie Ashcroft Amazing Radio
'Beautiful' HD Online
'Stunning' Robb Powell
'Wonderful, pure voice which gives her music a timeless quality which just draws you in' Belles and Gals
'FLY' will take you on a journey from the first note. Danielle's vocals are beautiful, haunting & keeps you wanting more' Terry Love, 6 Towns Radio

‘Fly explores the depth of my writing and spectrum of my voice. These songs are a window into growing up on the Welsh West Coast, travelling and evolving as an artist and young woman. I wanted the songs to hold a more mature and organic sound within the songwriting’.

Fly is Danielle Lewis’s third EP and follows a highly popular single release for one of its tracks, Anywhere is Home in the summer of 2016, on Folkstock Records. The EP will be released on 9th November, just before an exciting and prestigious opportunity for Danielle to perform live at the BBC’s Maida Vale studio in London. An AA single for title track Fly and Belong is out on October 21st.

The EP has kindly been funded by Arts Council Wales. It was recorded by Lauren Deakin Davies and Richard Llewellyn, (Paper Aeroplanes) and produced by Lauren.
Gethin John produced Anywhere is Home. Danielle co-wrote West Coast Sun and Along This Time with Richard Llewellyn.

Danielle was delighted to be accepted onto BBC Cymru Wales’ Emerging Talent Horizons Project for 2016. This has not only afforded her the chance to record at Maida Vale but has also enabled her to showcase at The Great Escape in Brighton and Festival No 6 at Portmeirion among others.

The project, run by BBC Horizons/Gorwelion, is provided by the BBC in association with Arts Council Wales. Welsh born and bred, Danielle is a familiar sight on Welsh S4C TV having performed on three programmes, been playlisted on BBC Radio Cymru, and featured as Artist of the Week on BBC Radio Wales. This is in addition to two live performances on BBC Radio 3 as part of Ian McMillan’s The Verb broadcast from The Hay festival earlier this year.

‘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 feel to that of Taylor Swift or Lucy Rose’ Horizons Wales.

Danielle’s first EP was called Paper Hearts, released in 2013, this was followed by a bilingual EP called Dreams Grow in 2015, from which two tracks were used on a ‘Visit Wales’ online campaign. Danielle is published by Charlotte Church’s company Bounce.
''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 & Music Presenter BBC Radio Wales

Track Name: West Coast Sun
I'll always remember,
The summer in December,
We drove to Burleigh Heads in a car of silver grey,

Walk down to the water,
Hello early riser,
Kids take boats to school as the waves begin to break,

Will you keep me warm,
When I'm back in old South Wales,

The west coast sun where we came from,
The west coast sun where we belong,
The west coast sun where we came from,
The west coast sun that's where we came from,

When I think of Australia,
It's you I remember,
Put colour in my heart and sunshine in the day,

Looking over New Quay,
From the window I grew in,
Tracing out a path down to Cardigan Bay,

Will you keep me warm,
When I'm back in old South Wales,

The west coast sun where we came from,
The west coast sun where we belong,
The west coast sun where we came from,
The west coast sun that's where we came from,
Track Name: Along This Time
Day turns into night melt in to day,
Films in black and white blend into grey,
We'd just repeat the things we always say,
The colour in your voice has gone away,

Can we get along this time,
Heed all the warning signs,
Remember the start and the people we used to be,

Songs fade into sound turn into rain,
The sunlight on the ground has washed away,
Remember how my laugh would make you smile,
The little things we did along the way,

Can we get along this time,
Heed all the warning signs,
Remember the start and the people we used to be,

Can we get along this time,
Heed all the warning signs,
Just lay down beside me,
Forget all our history.
Track Name: Fly
Home nobody knows,
We float wherever we go,
Don’t run for us, don’t look up,
Just wait for us,

I’ll fly ‘til I find another sky,
I’ll fly

We roam and rise with the sun,
Heavy heart and wake up alone,
The breeze won’t leave,
Through the rain I’ll see,
Just wait for me, wait,

I’ll fly ‘til I find another sky,
I’ll fly, remember these wings, I’ll fly high,

Let this river, lead us where we’ll lay,
The tide will take me,
Hold me so I’ll stay,
It’s almost day,

I’ll fly ‘til I find another sky,
I’ll fly, remember these wings, I’ll fly high
Track Name: Belong
All the trees they shed their leaves,
And every season has it's way to be,
Dancing under the scorching sun,
Or getting drenched under the pouring rain,

Well I'm a long way down,
From the place that I call home,
But I know, yes I know,
Where I belong,
Well I'm a long way away,
From those old yesterdays,
But I know, yes I know,
Where I belong,

The different people that I met,
We shared moments I won't ever forget,
You taught my soul to grow,
And also reminded me of who I used to know,

Well I'm a long way down,
From the place that I call home,
But I know, yes I know,
Where I belong,
Well I'm a long way away,
From those old yesterdays,
But I know, yes I know,
Where I belong,

Well I'm a long way down,
From the place that I call home,
But I know, yes I know,
Where I belong,

Well I'm a long way down,
From the place that I call home,
But I know, yes I know,
Where I belong,
Well I'm a long way away,
From those old yesterdays,
But I know, yes I know,
Where I belong,
Well I'm a long way down,
From the place that I call home,
But I know, yes I know,
Where I belong.
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,

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.
Track Name: Hiraeth
Ble aeth y golau'r haul,
Does dim bywyd yn y ddail,
Yn edrych lan i'r awyr lwyd,
i dod o hyd i fy ffordd,
Mae'n diwrnod hir,
Yn fy meddwl i,

Ar goll yn y mor,
Does dim le i mi droi,
Rhy bell o fy nhir,

Ar goll yn y mor,
Does dim achub fi nawr,
i fod yn eich aer,
Hiraeth, hiraeth

Ble aeth yr lliwiau'r traeth,
Does dim le fel fy nghartref,
Yn edrych mas am cyfarwydd,
Y gobaith yn fy ngwlad,
Lle mae fy nghalon i,
Yn Cymru
