I am Danielle Ate the Sandwich, a folk singer/songwriter from Colorado, USA. I came up with the name for myself because I think sandwiches are cool and nice to look at. I have been playing music and touring around the USA for 8 years and will have my first international performance at The Grand Northern Ukulele Festival in May 2016. I started out on guitar, but once I got my hands on my first ukulele in 2007, I never went back! I started uploading videos to YouTube and gained a lot of views and exposure that helped get my music out into the world.
My advice for those wanting to write their own songs is to find your own original way to write, sing and tell a story. Imitating others is a nice way to find your footing, but I recommend using it as a starting point and quickly finding your own path, so you can be authentic and original! Creating good stuff is easier if you?re doing it honestly.
