ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If you were to ask Moira Danis “where’s home?” she would fondly say Omaha, Nebraska. It’s not because she was born there, or that she has family there, but because Omaha was the one place this singer, actress, music teacher and military brat lived the longest as a child. The Air Force may have kept her family moving, but ever since she’s had a say in the matter, New York City has been her home.

Moira was stage struck at age three during her older sister’s dance recital. When her skunk-costumed sister started to sing and tap to "Wouldn’t You Like Me For Your Very Own", Moira leapt over the footlights and joined her in an impromptu song and dance duet. She’s been front and center stage ever since with roles at The Omaha Playhouse and in community theatre productions throughout the United States and at military bases overseas.

New York audiences have seen her at Crabtree’s Kittle House, Danny’s Skylight Room, The Duplex, Don’t Tell Mama, Palsson’s Supper Club and the Paul Revere Room at the former Hotel Lexington. She worked with Keith Levenson and Jeanine Tesori in Keith’s production of "The City Suite", appeared in the New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players production of "Ruddigore", and portrayed Julie in a regional theatre production of "Show Boat". She has also performed in Germany with the Stuttgart Philharmonic Choir.

Moira is a graduate of the Eastman School of Music and holds a Master of Theatre Arts from the City College of New York. As a music teacher in Westchester County, she produces, composes and directs numerous school productions each year. In 1995, she was honored by her school district and awarded Teacher of the Year for her commitment to and revitalization of the elementary music program. In 1998, in recognition of her contribution to the raising of learning standards in New York State, she was inducted as a member of the New York State Academy for Teaching.

What the critics have said….

"Her voice is a lovely instrument, expansively expressive, always in control, with a broad and subtle vibrato she employs for dramatic effect...will damn near levitate anyone who responds to excellence of song and singer." – Alan Bargebuhr, Cadence Magazine

“…she is a classically trained lyric soprano who has developed into a fine jazz influenced singer who can break your heart, make you laugh and move you in an emotionally filled program of songs from Broadway and the American songbook to some of today’s contemporary songwriters.” Gregg Culling, Cabaret Singers

“Moira Danis has a sweet soprano…Adriana Caselotti supersonic notes…there’s a comedienne raring to surface as a combination of Virginia O’Brien and Yma Sumac.” David Finkle, Back Stage

“…her gentle kindness permeates this show… …an hour of cozy comfort, charming tunes and fine vocals.” Stu Hamstra, CabaretHotlineOnline

I Wish - And So It Goes
The album is lovely, and Moira's voice is rich, and lyrical all in the same instant.
Many wonderful songs, but the best is her version of "And So It Goes", an incredibly beautiful and artful rendition of this Billy Joel classic. Once you've heard this version, you'll consider this the definitive version of the song.
