Danielle Miraglia comes armed with a strong steady thumb on an old Gibson, an infectious stomp-box rhythm and harmonica with tunes ranging from heart-felt to socially conscious that will move both your heart and hips. On her latest "Glory Junkies" she's joined by a killer cast of musicians blending the classic rock vibe of The Rolling Stones and Janis Joplin with Danielle's signature lyrical ability to explore human nature at its best and worst. Danielle was nominated for a 2015 Boston Music Award for Singer-Songwriter of the Year.
"Straddling the line where folk/roots meets rock/blues, Miraglia has a voice that can go from a raspy come-hither purr to an Etta James-esque powerhouse belt, although she may be best known for her lead thumb — a heavy, thumping strike on her Gibson that??™s backdrop percussion in itself." - Lauren Daley, The Boston Globe
- Paul Patchel, State Street Blues Festival - Media, PA
“The genius of Glory Junkies is that Miraglia successfully pokes fun at a proverbial “selfie nation,” while also fully owning that tendency. Glory Junkies offers up deeply narrative lyricism and carefully crafted compositions...Glory Junkies boasts a song about reality TV, and one (the title track) that pokes fun at immortalizing one??™s own image. Others stray into more personal territory, hitting close to home on Miraglia??™s family dynamic, but the concept of the album remains a mainstay throughout.” - Liz Rowley, BestNewBands
"Danielle Miraglia is a fabulously gifted singer-songwriter whose uncanny folk/blues is both progressive and highly original." - Steve Morse - Longtime Boston Globe Critic and Contributor to Billboard and Rolling Stone.
Danielle has toured and played major venues across the United States and beyond, shining in both the Folk and Blues circuits including New York State Blues Festival, New Bedford Summerfest, The Narrows Center for the Arts (Fall River, MA), The Birchmere (Alexandria, VA), The Ramshead (Annapolis, MD), Sellersville Theater (Sellersville, PA) and the list goes on….
She has shared the stage with the likes of Johnny Winter, Bettye Lavette, John Hammond Jr., Joan Osborne, John Mayall, Sonny Landreth, John Oates, Colin Hay, Robert Cray, Rodney Crowell and many more.

Manhattan Beach Studios hosts "in-house concerts", private intimate events with artists in a listening and engaging environment. There is often time to interact with the artists, ask questions, get autographs and have meaningful and engaging evenings while supporting artists and their crafts. We do supply some basic noshes but encourage guests to bring desserts and items to share. This is not generally an evening designed for our kids; so get away if you can! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending.
