Hello, my name is Danielle Thomas, and I'm a singer/songwriter/musician living in Biloxi, MS. I play at local hangouts. I wrote my first poem when I was seven-years-old. I still remember the title, 'Diamonds', but not really what it was about. About five years ago I picked up the guitar and figured out how to merge my words with chords and then form the two into verses and choruses. After many setbacks including a little storm called Katrina, I'm so excited to my release first album, 'Pretty Words.' I wrote the lyrics and music to all ten tracks. I love songwriting or any kind of writing. It's like therapy for me. I do it when I'm happy, when I'm not so happy, worried, scared, frustated or whatever. Writing is my way of making sense of a world that still doesn't make sense when I'm done. I have one song that didn't make the album but it's one of my favorites called 'Guitar Love'. It goes 'When I'm feeling lonely, she keeps me company. When no one else likes me, she's my friend'. That's how I feel about music. Everything I write is either about my experiences or the experiences of people I know. I try to always be honest, simple, and heartfelt in everything I compose. So many times when we've been hurt, we try to shut ourselves down emotionally, but I think there is something beautiful in vulnerability. I want to bare my inner soul to the world and say 'Here I am. Do with me what you will.' I think unless allow yourself the possibly of being hurt, you can't ever realize that deepest desire. You know, the one that you dare not whisper let alone yell out loud. I want to truly live, deeply love and wholly commit everything I am to something worthy of my life, love and commitment. So here is me, artistically naked and my humble self exposed through my music. I'm afraid, yet exhilirated. So world, judge me, love me, hate me, do what you will with me. Just remember me. Because in the end that's what matters.
