Being a preacher’s daughter didn’t stop Danielle Bloom from having dreams of being a kick-ass, hard-driving, Rock-n-Roll Goddess. Sure, Danielle grew up singing in the choir and touring the church festival scene, but she shed her choir robes for corsets and cut-offs and hit the rock scene hard, never looking back.
Armed with a long resume of music behind her, (Danielle cut a pop record at the age of 16 and while still a teenager, she belted out the National Anthem during sporting events including the Atlanta Braves), She has shared the stage opening for Backstreet Boys, Nsync, Vanilla Ice, and MC Hammer. Ms. Bloom moved to Nashville where she honed her powerhouse rock chops and mastered the fine art of no-nonsense rock and roll songwriting. Collaborating with a range of writers, including her brother, Kid Rock bassist, Aaron Julison, Danielle has crafted a catalog of gritty, introspective, and telling songs that weave together the story of Danielle Bloom. “I’ve written about things I’ve gone through personally and the way I’m feeling at that moment in my life. I want to live as authentically as I can and hope to inspire others to do the same.”
Not only do you feel the authenticity in her songwriting, but you see it in her raw, in-your-face live performances. Often compared to Janis Joplin or Joan Jett, Danielle not only displays incredible voice theatrics but her stage presence is felt from the first row, right through the front door. Danielle says that her “favorite part of this musical journey is performing. I love being on stage and rocking it out.” And rocking it out is exactly what she does. From her funky moves to her unique musical style and out-of-this-world costumes, Danielle proves that rock-n-roll is not just a man’s game, but it’s also for chicks with six-inch platforms and catsuits.
Underneath the skin-tight hot pants and steely black eyes, there is a soft side to Danielle Bloom. She is on a mission to inspire women “to stand up and be strong. I want to encourage them to know that they are beautiful and amazing.” She is committed to doing more than just entertain her audience, which she does with sizzle, but Danielle is also determined to engage, inspire and change the mindset of anyone within earshot. “I want to inspire people in a positive way with my music.
Danielle fills her shows and her music with the passion with which she lives her own life. Danielle’s ability to bare her soul through her music expresses a collective wisdom that can resonate with anyone, no matter their situation.
How has the new year been so far for you as an artist? 2022 has been outstanding so far. I released my new rock version single "I Am Woman" by Helen Reddy, Filmed a music video for it as well set to release mid-April-2022. I've been writing and recording for my new EP set to release in June. I've also been singing The National Anthem at various sporting events. Can you tell us how you as an artist have transformed from the beginning to now? Oh my gosh, I could write a book on this transformation. haha. I started out singing in church at age 7. I was a timid little girl who just wanted to sing and spread hope to everyone. I didn't want people to be sad. At 12 years old I started traveling and singing in churches, festivals, youth conventions, weddings, and funerals. I recorded my first pop record at age 16, moved to Nashville at 19, and was signed to an independent record label at 21. I learned and grew from all of those experiences which helped me find out who I really was as an artist and what kind of music I really wanted to do, which was rock and roll. Where are you from originally? North Dakota Where do you live now? Nashville, TN Do you think where you live impacts how your music is made? Growing up in a small town up north caused me to get all of my inspiration from television and radio as there was nothing going on in the music scene there. What was the inspiration to make music your career? My mother always said I was singing in the womb. I started singing around the house at age 2. I would use anything as a microphone. My parents finally bought me a "real" toy mic that went through the radio speakers and I could hear myself. It was the best feeling of all time. When I started singing in church I saw how music impacted people especially young people in such a powerful way and I knew this is what I wanted to do forever. How do I want to shape my career? I want to keep innovating and polishing every performance along with expanding more internationally. Do you work on a tight timeline always or do you go with the flow when it comes to your music? Honestly, I like to just go with the flow when it comes to writing. When I set out to work on my music every day that's where the magic happens. There are times when it just flows and there are times when it doesn't. I'm always sensitive to the seeds that come to birth a song. How did your latest music come to be "I Am Woman". Because of the incidents that have been in the media concerning the subjugation of females and my own experiences, I wanted to express my feelings concerning that; so in my quest to put it out in music, I stumbled upon a Netflix movie a while ago called "I Am Woman". The caption intrigued me. The movie was about Helen Reddy's life. The movie affected me so much with what Helen had gone through and seeing the courage that she had, I found it very difficult to write something that could match this extraordinary song. I knew this was the one I needed to record in an edgy rock version. How did you land on the title finally? It's a cover song by Helen Reddy. The lyrics were outstanding and I loved the title too. This song can resonate with anyone. You don't have to be a star to endure gender abuse. This is something that every woman has to deal with and the song speaks for all women to rise up, know their worth, and believe in themselves. Was it hard to let go of the music when it was done? YES! The song will continue to speak to whoever listens to it, because the words are so meaningful. Do you feel an emotional attachment with your music? Absolutely! Music is the most powerful communication tool of all time. What empowering message do you want people to take away from the single? Being a female doesn't make you any less of a person. How would you describe your music in one word to someone who hasn't listened to it yet? PASSIONATE Where do they go to listen now? I'm on all streaming platforms-Spotify-Apple music.
What has been the best fan reaction to your music? I am grateful to have so many people believe in me as an artist. Impacting people in a positive way is what life is all about. I have received several positive comments from Helen Reddy fans about my version of "I Am Woman". One die-hard Helen Reddy fan said " Awesome version Danielle. We appreciate the wonderful job you did on her classic hit. Hope it's a hit for you too. Helen is definitely smiling down on you". I'm speechless.
Is there anything exciting coming up for you? Writing and recording my new EP with my producer/brother Aaron (bass player for Kid Rock) Are you performing the song anywhere live? I'm working on dates right now including overseas.
