Danielle Miraglia @ Kelly Center

Kelly Center, Havertown, PA

Danielle Miraglia comes armed with a strong steady thumb on an old Gibson, an infectious stomp-box rhythm and harmonica with tunes ranging from heart-felt to socially conscious that will move both your heart and hips. Her latest "All My Heroes Are Ghosts," released with her band Danielle M and The Glory Junkies touches on a lot of what might be on your mind these days – the loss of so many musical heroes on the title track, the chaos of “fake news” on “Monster,” our collective anxieties on “All On Fire,” and more.. The music itself blends influences of some of Miraglia’s own musical heroes - The Rolling Stones, Prince, Janis Joplin along with Danielle's lyrical ability to explore human nature at its best and worst. Danielle M and The Glory Junkies are nominated for a 2018 Boston Music Award for "Blues Artist of the Year" and Danielle was nominated for a 2015 Boston Music Award for Singer-Songwriter of the Year.

"Straddling the line where folk/roots meets rock/blues, Miraglia has a voice that can go from a raspy come-hither purr to an Etta James-esque powerhouse belt, although she may be best known for her lead thumb — a heavy, thumping strike on her Gibson that’s backdrop percussion in itself." - Lauren Daley - The Boston Globe

Katie Barbato brings great talent and a generous heart to bear on her new record, The Art of Falling (The Giving Groove, release date September 21, 2018). Musically, The Art of Falling is by no means dark, however, the production by Barbato and multi-instrumentalist Brett Kull (Grey Eye Glances, Echolyn) feels warm, hopeful and openhearted, brightened by Barbato’s delicate guitar work and sweet, expressive voice, as a singer and as a writer.

Also lending their talents on The Art of Falling are Grammy-winning drummer Jim Hines (Brian Wilson, David Bromberg) and the players Barbato calls her “longtime musical companions,” keyboardist Mike Lawson, vocalist Rebecca Rankin, and guitarist Matt Teacher.
