Danika Smith performs a raw, timeless style of folk music with undertones of jazz and soul. She is known for her tender topics, honey stick melodies and charismatic satire. But something's shifting. It's 2020, where women in music are being recognized and supported, so she feels it's time to get experimental. Folk is heaven, no doubt, but curiosity, desire and the inner groove has unavoidably begun Danika Smith's metamorphosis.
Since moving to Melbourne 6 years ago, Danika has also progressively built her own cohesive body of work and is ready to share it with the world. Suit of Armour was the first ever-professional recording put out by Danika and produced by grammy nominated engineer Nick Herrera. This first single marked her solo debut and was soon followed by her much-anticipated second single ‘Sweet Mellow-D’ released in October 2020 with the release of the full LP due for the first half of 2021. ‘This album I have in my heart, is a cathartic journey of complex emotions as a young woman navigating mental health, sexual trauma and the journey of self-empowerment. My music has been my therapy and I want other people out there who experience the universal themes I explore, to have the whole cake and eat it too’.
