Live Entertainment – Danika Holmes & Jeb HartOctober 9, 2015 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
“Danika Holmes is a rising star in the heartland!” says Bill Sullivan of The Rock and Roll Report. American Picker Mike Wolfe of The History Channel says, “She’s a true American talent… I couldn’t stop listening!” Music critics agree that Danika is charming and energetic with a welcoming tone in her voice which is as gentle as a breeze.
Holmes played over 250 shows around the US and UK in 2011-2012 and will take the stage for another 120 shows in 2013. At shows fans tell her how they can relate to her lyrics, which is exactly what she is hoping for. “At first that was really scary for me. I felt like I was standing on stage and unzipping my soul!”
“Second Chances,” Danika’s debut album, was released in March of 2010. The title track is a reflection of Danika’s dogmatic belief that everyone benefits from a second chance, or even a third, along life’s way. Starting over with a music career was her second chance in life. A fan favorite “Lock Me In Tonight” was made into Danika’s first music video and was released in June 2010.
Danika’s follow up album “Living Your Dream” was recorded in Nashville, TN, and released in early 2012. This collection of songs offers an optimistic take on life. While Danika’s debut album leaned more towards the folk scene, she takes it to the next level by adding in an edgy rock vibe complete with horns; a bold move for this singer/songwriter from Iowa.
Her passion for music and her life experiences lend the inspiration for her songs that reverberate with hope. Onstage Danika delivers her tunes with extreme vibrance, both inspiring and entertaining.
