On Friday, May 12, 2017, The Danberrys will perform at The Roasting Room, above The Corner Perk, from 8-10 p.m.
“I can’t get up there and sing something that doesn’t move me,” says Dorothy Daniel, the tambourine-shaking, stargazing, breezy voiced front woman that makes up half of The Danberrys. Hailing from the surrounds of Nashville TN, Dorothy and husband Ben DeBerry (guitar/vocals) come together to create a unique entwining of styles. Acoustically driven, their sound spirals through bluegrass with the backbeat of funk, the patient lope of blues, and glimpses of pop.
Their latest album ‘Give & Receive’, was recorded at Zac Brown’s Southern Ground studio in Nashville, TN and was released in June 2016. The album received two Independent Music Award nominations for Best Americana Album and Best Country Song (Let Me Ride), and one win for Best Bluegrass Song (Long Song).
The Danberrys sing songs rich in pastoral imagery, about overcoming demons, being washed clean and starting anew, and love in its many forms. In conversation with both Ben and Dorothy, spirituality, and the concept of blooming into the full power of your brain and heart are topics that often surface, naturally suffusing into their lyrics with clever subtlety – more hinting than hollering.
