Greetings Music Friends,


Much is happening and I am so happy to share this with you.


Tomorrow in the day, I will gig with Death of Paris in front of the Russell House at USC in downtown Columbia. Not sure how the public will kept out, but the festival is called Connect2Colafest and is to welcome students to different things going on in Columbia.


Then the band is off to Asheville to appear at The Orange Peel with many of our friends.

Barneroo Festival in Asheville, NC is having a pre-Jam THIS Saturday 8-12 and we will be there.

For many years I have begged Andrew Scotchie and the River Rats to PLEEEZE let me play on this festival, produced by Andrew Scotchie, connector and great musician. Our band is ON the bill and it is going to be kick-ass.


Immediately following my performance, I shall drive to the Charlotte airport and head over the big Pond to Scotland and England for some date with The Dainties, fronted by old friend and amazing songwriter Martin Stephenson.


BUT WAIT!! You can see Martin Stephenson in the Southern USA beginning of September. Look on his FB page for details! He will play Awendaw Green Barn Jam on September 2nd. I will be there to hang and dance with you as he sings his well crafted, life changing songs.


Thanks to the 10 awesome humans who donated to my Paypal account to help this trip happen! There is still time to donate. This email will help you to my Paypal. You will get a t-shirt and some treats in the mail. If you want me to download one of my CD's for you, I can do that!! Just tell me in the note when you place your donation.


NEW YOUTUBE SERIES “D-Tales” filmed and produced by Emmy award winning actor John C. Bailey

Please make sure you watch my new YOUTUBE series called “D-Tales” all about the stories behind my songs. We have two episodes completed, so far- and they are posted under the video tab of my website! I have also given the corresponding sound-cloud link to the songs, if you would like to make comments there as well.

Thank you Edwin McCain for having me on your upcoming show on August 27 in Hilton Head and Poseidon. I am so honored to play with you and your band again.

Hilton Head is sold out because Edwin Rules and people give a shit, but there are still tickets for 8/28 Windjammer.

And by the way you 3 Edwin fans, you are most welcome for me telling you to GET YOUR HILTON HEAD tickets. So buy a #DMFH t-shirt- right? :) We good.




All summer long I have been writing songs and working as a gardener and cleaning lady. It has been rewarding and challenging. I have not decided on a producer yet for my next CD, but you will be informed shortly of my fall plans to record with my fabulous band and a great producer. I have grown so much as an artist and am in my prime. It feels good to say and live this with humble confidence.


Americana Fest

FINALLY!!! I have the honor to attend this festival thanks to Joe Spencer who sponsored me to this event. I do not have a showcase, but will attend and hope see, meet and get inspired by many artists and industry professionals. I was delighted that 5 artists playing this event I had seen at Awendaw Green's weekly concert Series The Barn Jam.



This is an artist and industry friendly, fervent, informative, career building entity! It was put together by one of the greatest music business minds I know. Dave Stewart. FANS!!! GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!! Go to the link above and you will know why and where we are all together. Aug 27-29 is ON!

We have a full back-line set up and ready to go, so no excuses if you want to bring your band out. After my set, we down to the music up in front of a receptive crowd. So many great people have come: Jordan Igoe, Josh Roberts, John Brannen, Finnegan Bell,East Indians, Brendan Pugh, Campbell Brown, Reid Stone, Mac Leaphart, Doug Jones, Sean Kelly, to name a few. I will let you look them up, because you should know. Check out the FB page


Parallel Chords Short Film see trailer:

is doing GREAT and being added to many prominent festivals. Yes, I helped produce this film, cast a bunch of extras and helped organize many locations for the shoots down here in SC. Parallel Chords did well at Cinema St. Louis film fest and got into St. Louis International FF. 3 awards: BEST SOUNND and our cinematographer Hannah Radcliffe was recognized for two films, along with our director/writer Catherine Dudley- Rose for notable talent to watch. We are receiving confirmations for showings left and right! Our director and writer Catherine Dudley- Rose is most pleased. She is an amazing artist to work with. I will never trade my times sweating it out day and night with Catherine and the crew. FB page:


The Edisto Expedition- Watch this NOW

is a film in progress and now a community project that has my heart and full support. If you would like to literally SAVE South Carolina's pristine coast, your water supply, and make sure the ENTIRE EARTH remains in balance, check out this 30 minute short film. I am primarily a music coordinator on this project, but will do some composing as well. Call me “word spreader” because that is what NEEDS to happen most. More info to educate:


Sol Jam Fest was AMAZING!! Highlight for me in Late July, early August was seeing Josh Roberts and the Hinges. My band during this festival was actually Jordan Igoe, along with Josh Roberts and The Hinges. Then Josh kicked it Hinge face melting style after our set to headline the outdoor stage, right there on the front beach at Isle of Palms. You can catch Josh Roberts this month on the band's tour of Colorado.


Jordan Igoe is AMAZING and becoming known in the national music world at an astounding rate. It's because she is great and her music will change your life for the better. Her honesty and careful crafting of composition wins her “Musician of Bad-ass” award in the #DMFH world.


I humbly thank Joel Timmons of the band Sol Drive Train, ( ADD URL) and his amazing staff for putting on Sol Jam Fest 2015. Joel reminded me at the festival that I introduced him to Josh Roberts!! This was definitely a humbling moment in my life. Thank God other people remember things like this. I can sail on that statement for weeks!


Awendaw Green AWENDAWSOME!!!!!

I am artist in residence at musical hinge Awendaw Green in the low-country of South Carolina. We do a show EVERY Wednesday (rain or shine) called The Barn Jam. Artists from all over the country know of this and our loyal, growing crowd.


We have grown to 500 in number this summer, bringing art, music, fun, business, and connectivity for all who enjoy and support the Barn Jam. This is CRAZY in the rural town of Awendaw, just outside of Charleston, SC. The Barn Jam often exceeds the town's population most Wednesdays. We want to thank all of our patrons for recycling and keeping the land beautiful and clean.


Our brothers and sisters of music at Sewee Outpost make the Barn Jam possible. Brooks Gear, owner of Sewee Outpost, has a keep sense about music and community. Brooks has also installed (and runs) a beautiful Frisbee golf course on the property, which attracts players from all over the country. I have played this course several times and though I am not very good at Frisbee Golf, it is great way to get outside and be with your friends.


All things Awendaw Green are under the direction of our fearless leader Eddie White and engineer in residence Nat Mundy. The Barn Jam has become a refuge for touring and local artists. Fans of the Barn Jam have come to know the consistent and authentic booking skills of Eddie White, who also happens to be the best dentist I have EVER had in my life.


During the Barn Jam, I can often be found making pizzas, which are then wood fired, in our beautiful oven, by our fearless volunteers Joan Hale and Keith Grybowski. We are thinking of forming a side project called “the Pizza people” but mostly we just sing and dance while making pizzas to all the bands and songwriters that play. HOWEVER..... Keith did contribute and instrumental tune to Edisto Expeditions short movie, which is used throughout, more than the rock star tunes in there!! Go Keith!!


Mine is a life of service with great love. I am looking forward to hearing and hanging with this vast community of earthlings I am a part of. Wishing you all the best. Thanks for reading. #DMFH

It's a Wrap! End of Summer Updates! 

OH man, what grand adventures I have had this summer. Being Co-producer on a short film, written by Catherine Dudley-Rose WRAPPED a week or so back (cant' remember exact date) but the film adventure continues. We will both score this short film together called "Parallel Chords". Once our press release is written, I shall post it here for all of you to enjoy.
Catherine chose such a fine group of talent, both on and off screen for the shoot, which took place in Charleston and the surrounding area. THANKS to To Patrick at T.W. Graham's in McClellanville for feeding the crew and also for giving his restaurant up for a location. We LOVE you Patrick, your chef ( primary extras artist in Army Wives) and all of your staff.

I have never seen so many contracts, releases and insurance forms. If this is what is necessary for a short film, my hat goes off to ALL folks who work the back-end in this industry. on ANYTHING! Holy poop sticks! I carried that book of forms around like a sacred scroll- no offense there to anyone. Deal with me!

All-in-all I felt like everyone on this shoot had each other's back and quite honestly, I learned a great deal about the film industry. Thanks professional bad-asses. I Did my job, and the ones that got handed to me. Did this kick my ass? YES. It was awesome! So if you are from "Parallel Chords"  and reading this: thank you for your honesty, care and great ways of getting my ass up to speed. Also thanks for listening to me when I knew what I was talking about, evne though I am new to the on-set film world.

WHAT AM I DOING MUSICALLY? Just before SXSW, back in March, I recorded a 5-song demo that has a ton of potential. It is not out of the can yet, but will be in the coming months. My parts on it need a little more work. The band sounded just fabulous. We recorded at Pow-Pow sound  in Columbia, SC with engineer John Furr (Guitarist and songwriter for the Band Danielle Howle and The Tantrums) as I probably told you before. What a blessing it was to work with John again.

The band changed rhythm sections in June of this year and I am pleased with our new choices. We will record a track in Savannah at a new studio this month - but I cannot say more right now. Then another track will be recorded in October. This studio is Archer Avenue, with the awesome engineer Kenny McWilliams, who co-produced with me the track: "let Me Take You There" a song about Columbia, SC for Columbia Visitor's Bureau, in late April and early May of this year.

If all of this is confusing, imagine how I feel right now. There are tons of other logistical moves I am making behind the scenes to make the fall into 2015 run smoothly for our music.

This brings me to my next point. I need interns willing to work 10 -15 hours a MONTH helping me and my new office assistant get our ducks in a row. All interested applicants can apply to: or here on the website forum. Applicants do not have to be in the same town or even state.  A Skype or face-time interview with each applicant will be the next step.

This opportunity will look good on a resume. I have much to teach, and also learn. The soft deadline for this is September 19th. I will work in any qualified people after this through March of 2015. Yes, college and high-school credit are available for those chosen. Please note if you need more hours to receive your credit, I need to be made aware of this in advance through your submission letter. All applicants must state (to the best of their knowledge) all pertinent info for my office assistant to handle the logistics of school credit.

Please note one internship is specifically available and related to Swamp Sessions "Off The Grid" Sustainable Energy and Music project. Get to know this project, visit our FB page (URL) and go to

Film Opportunity for Young Adults ages 15-20


We will be shooting a portion of the film, ParalleChords, at

 Awendaw Green on Sunday, August 24th (5:00pm- 10:00pm)

and at Bishop England Saturday, August 23rd (12-noon – 5:00pm)


This film is a “coming of age” story about a young, virtuoso violinist thrown into the music world.


The setting of the Awendaw Green scene is a secluded high school party in the woods, and takes place in the early 90's. Extras should look highschool age, and wear their own clothes, keeping in mind the era. We will need people for 3-5 hours. There will be water and snacks, and pizzas on set.

The Setting of Bishop England is a classroom.


AGE: Extras should look young, though most are seen in the distance. There are possibilities for close ups. Mischief in the eyes. All will appear to be drinking and chatting, solo cups, a keg, boom box and so forth.

ERA: Early 90's. 

CLOTHING: This is an era where the clothing options are widely varied. Ideally actors would wear their own outfits. Show us your 90's look!


Please send a photo and contact information to:


Danielle Howle 803-546-1286


You must have your parent's permission to submit for this opportunity.

A detailed sheet of the shoot and release forms will be sent to your email if you are chosen.


This blog should be called "WTF? How amazing is my Life???AMAZING!!!"" So so shall it be! YES- it is going to a be long blog - so I have put some BOLD PRINT around items of interest in case you guys don't have time to read the whole thing.

Hey Music Friends- it's been a while and I hope you are well. The fall brings creativity and the making of things in my world. How about you? Write me and let me know. I love being inspired by you all.

When I left Heather Lutrell's comfy Atlanta home and amazing hospitality, (after finishing my Gyrotonic pre-training,) I drove like mad  Sunday, October 19,  to Columbia, SC to record some of my new tunes. I was just in time to roll into Archer Avenue Studios the day before tracking.

There, producer Kenny McWilliams and our drummer Josh Keen were setting up to get drum sounds for the new recording, which took place Monday, October 20th.

We got two tracks and they sound amazing even in the rough mix stage. I'm going to do more recordings. However this will take time and funding that I desperately need. I'm figuring out ways to fund the recording- all ideas and donations welcome!!! You will get many thanks and special gifts of unreleased material. You can also name a gift you want! Donate to this email by paypal.

Just spent a week in Atlanta, GA. The focus of my visit was Gyrotonic Pre-training. I had a wonderful experience working with master trainer Elizabeth Holland. If you would like to know more about this system of fitness, wellness and expansion, please visit her site and go also to I truly recommend this for all ages and fitness levels.

Also, I stayed a few days with awesome musical artist Heather Lutrell who just released a CD  called "Boat Paddle"... I highly recommend all people BUY this album now. It has become the soundtrack to my life and travels! It is her best work to date. Onward my musical friend and inspiration!

instead of giving Christmas gifts this year- have a Danielle Howle house concert at your place!! Email me at for all inquiries! I am also accepting house concert offers for January and February primarliy, at this point.
