Organisers of Isle of Man Cyclefest presented by Isle of Man Bank are delighted to announce that emerging artist Danielle Lewis will perform at Milntown this May as part of the PokerStars entertainment.
Crafting timeless songs that effortlessly weaves folk and indie pop, Danielle’s music can appear to span the decades; at once fusing the laid back west coast vibe of 1970’s along with contemporary influences such as Jack Johnson and Regina Spektor.
And anyone lucky enough to live in Wales is likely to have heard Danielle’s wonderfully clear voice and life enriching songs. She has already appeared live on S4C TV four times; she’s also play-listed on BBC Radio Cymru and has featured as Artist of the Week on BBC Radio Wales. Two tracks from her bilingual second EP, Dreams Grow, were also used by Visit Wales for their 2015 advert campaign.
Last year Danielle became the sole female artist invited onto BBC Wales’ Emerging Talent Horizons Project for developing new, independent contemporary music. Danielle also played a number of prime festival slots last year including The Great Escape and the industry-leading Festival No.6 – as well as a recording session at BBC’s Maida Vale Studios in November 2016. BBC Radio 3 was also on hand at the famous Hay Festival to broadcast two performances by Danielle.
Now, with the recent release of her third EP, Danielle enjoys more radio play than ever before, especially across the BBC and in Wales in particular. Indeed, Danielle’s latest single West Coast Sun, out on Folkstock records, is currently on the BBC Radio Wales A-list as well as enjoying airtime nationally on BBC 6 Radio and Paul Sexton’s Music Junction among others.
Visitors to Cyclefest at Milntown can catch a special live performance by Danielle on the morning of Sunday 14th May – part of a special double bill of exciting Welsh talent along with another BBC Horizons artist Dan Bettridge. Danielle’s uplifting music is simply the perfect accompaniment for a late, lazy breakfast in the sunshine – especially for those of you waiting on family and friends to return from their cycling exploits! Don’t miss her!
