Crazy by Danielle Todd (New Video)
Canadian Country Singer/Songwriter Danielle Todd just released a new video today for her debut radio single “Crazy”. The video shows Todd as multiple personalities as she sings a universal message about the disarming nature of love. The Guelph singer finds the sweet spot between country and pop and her voice delivers the story greatly, making for a song that will be loved by fans from multiple genres. It’s catchy enough to get stuck in your head no matter which side of that line you’re on.
At its heart, Todd has poured her own experiences and those of many others into a charming, melody-rich song which speaks of the kind of the silly madness that deep, passionate love can evoke in all of us.
“I could write heartbreak songs for days, but I have been writing more upbeat and happier songs lately because that’s what I find fun and I find is needed these days. Crazy is fun; it’s one of those songs you bop along to when it comes on in the car,” said Todd.
Crazy is a strong statement from an artist who is unafraid to be herself, to write music that is perhaps a little outside the country mainstream, but an artist that truly knows how to connect with an audience. It was penned alongside a couple of other up-and-coming writer/performers, Caitie Thompson and Bobbi Holliday, but imbued with Todd’s potently natural charm, enthusiasm and honesty.
After a decade of performing in venues across Ontario, Todd moved to Nashville three years ago, where she has dedicated herself to honing her chops as a writer, as well as becoming an in-demand performer on the competitive local club scene.
As a writer, she has learned from countless songwriting sessions across the breadth of musical genres, ending up with a classic country sound infused with the exceptionally well craft-ed, memorable pop sensibilities of her first musical inspirations.
“Its not unusual for me to gig five to seven days a week, and it’s not unusual for me to play 14 days in a row if I get asked to pick up some last-minute shows” she says. “On Broadway, every single bar has three or more floors and every floor has a band and there are four shifts seven days a week on every floor. And it never stops.”
“It’s the most insane place to work. But it’s fun, it’s high energy. I am meeting literally thousands of people a day. And I take what I learn and bring it into my songwriting sessions, which usually take place earlier in the day.”
While she pays her dues in Nashville, home is where her heart is and will always be, so Todd is thrilled to release her debut radio single in Canada. Crazy is the opening act to what promises to be an intriguing, fulsome and successful solo career of an exceptional performer who, will undoubtedly make audiences stop, look and listen whenever they hear one of her potently memorable songs.
