From Nashville’s legendary Bluebird Cafe to Lucas Oil Stadium for an NFL half-time show for the Indianapolis Colts, singer/songwriter JD Danner has been captivating audiences with her heartfelt lyrics and rockin’ riffs for more than a decade.
Dubbed Joan Jett meets Johnny Cash, Danner performed as the first ever and only house band for the Florida Panther’s hockey team for the 2015-2016 season and has performed for military and their families at bases in the U.S. and overseas.
After co-writing her last two albums with world-renowned Nashville producer, Keith Ridenour, Danner is back in South Florida ready to rock audiences with her latest live show, which pays tribute to the iconic women who shaped rock and roll from the 60s through today with an energetic showcase also featuring her original rock music and cover tunes by everyone from Stevie Nicks, Melissa Etheridge, Joan Jett and Cyndi Lauper to Bonnie Raitt, Janis Joplin, Carly Simon, Elle King, K.D. Lang and Cher to name a few. Each show will be different featuring the work of different legendary women who rock!
With a philanthropic heart, Danner also continues to lend her time and talent to important causes such as American Cancer Society, Disabled American Veterans, Forgotten Soldiers Outreach and assisting victims of domestic violence. Proceeds from her original song “Shelter From The Shame” have been donated to various women’s charities and domestic violence awareness groups.
Danner’s music hit the film industry when she caught the attention of filmmaker Jeffrey Poitier, nephew of legendary actor Sydney Poitier. Poitier featured an interview with Danner along with live footage of J.D. and her band performing her song “Almost Home” in his Coconut Grove based documentary, “VOICES.”
