Singer-Songwriter, Danielle Prou, has recently released a new single and video "The Healer" from her forthcoming EP. "The Healer" is a haunting exploration of personal sadness, longing and redemption. Built around a sultry vocal hook and swelling strings, the song captures the exceptional level of maturity this young songwriter has reached.
Hold a mirror up to the melting pot that is America and you may just Danielle Prou’s reflection in the glass. Her father is a fourth-generation American of Spanish heritage. Her mother is a refugee survivor of Cambodia’s sinister Killing Fields. Born in Australia and now living in Los Angeles, cross-cultural beauty glows bright in her face, much as the hopes and dreams of a young American emanate eloquently from her songs. She’s a one-woman embodiment of the multicultural reach for a shared destiny that is the American experience.
For Danielle, music is at the foundation of everything. As she puts it, “Music is the glue that holds the whole world together. I don’t know what life would be without it.” When she was younger, she pursued acting, and landed several gigs, but it soon became clear that music was her true passion.
When she was twelve, she began working with Shaun Royer, a vocal coach known for helping to launch the careers of young artists. It was at Royer’s urging that she began writing songs on guitar, and the piano (her chief songwriting instrument).
Where Danielle’s performances are electric, her choice of material is wonderfully eclectic. When she isn’t singing her own songs, she loves interpreting songs by other artists, mining a wealth of music created well before she was born.
