Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer: Daniela Nardi is a smoldering, passionate performer, with an enticing voice. Her music is literate, yet emotionally charged, blending diverse sounds to deliver up a world breadth and scope. Daniela Nardi has drawn comparisons to Joni Mitchell and Sting.

The launch of her debut recording One True Thing firmly establishes her as Canada’s singer/songwriter to watch.

The accumulated accolades and acclaim for Nardi and One True Thing, garnered a nomination for Best Group at the Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards (2006) and has been on regular rotation on numerous smooth jazz/adult contemporary radios stations and internet radio both nationally and internationally.

Daniela Nardi was only five years old when she began studying music at the Royal Conservatory of Music, in her native Toronto. Dreams of Mozart and Juilliard were dashed by the 1980’s British invasion. The Police and other bands influenced Nardi to take up bass guitar and songwriting, in addition to the piano skills she had already acquired. “I grew up listening to a wide spectrum of music, from Engelbert Humperdink to Italian folk songs to the Beatles. But when I saw Sting perform for the first time on Top of the Pops, something deeply resonated. From that moment forward, I knew I wanted to be a singer/songwriter/musician.” After performing everything from pop to punk to latin to country with a variety of bands, Nardi ended up at York University in Toronto, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) in Music.

As a true working artist, Nardi arrived at her unique blend of passionate, deeply emotional music circuitously. Nardi worked as a film composer for numerous indie films, as a voice-over artist, and actor. She also worked as a real estate agent and a marketing/advertising/promotions director for real estate firms and various arts organizations. But she chose a musician’s life because she knew she wanted to communicate and make an intense connection with people.

Foremost, of her musical endeavors has been her first project, the DNA Trio. A successful independent ep, Spadina Sessions, and a featured spot on Bhurr Records’ compilation Doggone Wheels, led to One True Thing (Minerva Road). With the prestigious support of the recording industry’s Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent On Records (FACTOR), Nardi not only produced and arranged the cd, but released it on her own label / production company, Minerva Road Entertainment. A true one-woman show.

Its first single, Mr. God charted on the national Adult Contemporary and Jazz Charts. Nardi’s tune Hands was featured on the U.S. TV series Wild Card and continues to be a favourite with smooth jazz/adult contemporary stations globally.

Daniela Nardi and her band DNA5, have appeared and been featured on television stations OMNI, Telelatino and Rogers and by CBC Radio’s “Sound of the Season”. Nardi has also performed at numerous festivals and conferences across Canada and internationally.

Daniela Nardi's poetry place her next to Joni Mitchell or Leonard Cohen
Daniela Nardi's poetry place her next to Joni Mitchell or Leonard Cohen, just to name a few other famous Canadian musicians. From jazz, pop, and folk she extracts just those colorful elements that allows her to create a personal, intimate, warm sound. Listening to her music one will realize that this is not "just" entertainment, there's a message within. Her voice transfers emotions and sincerity without loud "stunning" effects yet powerful enough to make a statement. Imagine a friend sitting next to you, singing a story about life, love and experiences in the most natural way.

Just perfect....Nardi possesses a great voice
Top notch playing by Steve Bright and Larry Crowe highlight the latest from Nardi. It's kinda like your mamma's stew that you used to hate but now appreciate after too many years of eating out - it's just perfect after trying that four-course dinner party deal for the umpteenth time. Daniela and band play in a wealth of styles from folk to world to classical yet at the root are a jazz band, and Nardi possesses a great voice that can shift personalities with ease. I'd be willing to be her favourite album is Joni Mitchell's Shadow and Light, but while Joni came off as genuine and inspired, Nardi at times sounds contrived. Fortunately, brilliant harmonica playing by guest musician Tortoise Blue means not all is lost for the Chapters coffee-drinking, book reading crowd.
