Whether delivering a soul-wrenching ballad or a playful musical romp,
Dani Carroll's mix of old-school "torch" vocals and progressive country
sensibilities invites favorable comparison to Patsy Cline, Patty
Loveless and Crystal Gayle. Some may recognize the influences by her musical hero Rodney Crowell. Though her significant talent is not easily categorized, her peers in the music industry have repeatedly recognized its depth and universal appeal.
While in San Diego, she performed often with Elecktra recording artist Jason Mraz ('The Remedy', 'You And I Both') A favorite highlight of her career includes opening for Paul Simon and Bob Dylan.
Carroll moved from her native San Diego to Nashville in 2002 and
eventually inked a deal with publisher Famous Music. She continues to write songs with some of the top talents on Music Row. She is currently working with acclaimed nashville producer David Malloy. Her distinctive alto voice and riveting stage presence make her performances a memorable experience for audiences in Music City and beyond.
" I love your "Unbreakable" CD so much I'm going to feature it on the
FRONT PAGE of CD Baby. We get about 100 new albums a DAY coming in here now, (about 100,000 total), and yours is one of the best I've ever heard."

CD Baby Review:
Although she might be compared to Linda Rondstadt, Patty Loveless and Trisha Yearwood, Dani Carroll has chiseled out a world of her own in the country genre: a world made up of solid songwriting, sensitivity, hummable melodies, moving stories and passionate, meaningful delivery. And with a strong and expressive voice like hers, she could make a nursery song sound powerful and moving. With subtle hints of folk rock and pop, this album takes its listeners through eleven tracks of country perfection.
