There is an amalgam of young female singer-songwriters these days, but every now and then another one pops up that you really don’t want to miss, which is absolutely true of Danielle Durack After hearing her new album I was sold Danielle Durack’s “No Place”. It’s a great performance by the young singer-songwriter from Phoenix, Arizona, because there has been quite a bit of appeared in this genre in recent years and the bar is now anxiously high. As far as I’m concerned, No Place by Danielle Durack is easy to distinguish from everything that’s already there. She has a very pleasant voice, she colours her Americana pop songs in a beautiful but also special way, she can play in several genres and also writes personal lyrics that are packed into appealing songs. 

No Place is the third album by this Danielle Durack, “Mistakes”, the album’s opening track, only lasts just a minute, but it’s a minute that immediately convinced me of the talent of the young American musician. It is a track with some sober, but also beautiful and special sounding guitar chords, a beautiful clear voice with a gently raw edge and a slightly southern tongue trap, choruses consisting of several layers of this voice and in the text the announcement of a breakup album.

They are ingredients that all return to the rest of the album, although most of the songs on the album are much fuller than the opening track. Danielle Durack joins a big pile of albums of ilk with No Place, of whom I would at least mention Phoebe Bridgers.  The instrumentation on the album stands out when listening to No Place, with influences from the folk, country, pop and rock. It is an instrumentation that not only sounds dark, but also a bit sweltering and adventurous.


It’s  a surprisingly versatile album that is also full of excellent songs. They are songs with a love break as a central theme, which makes No Place a personal album, but Danielle Durack certainly doesn’t make it an overly depressed album.
Danielle Durack pays for her modest musician existence with a job in a pizzeria. Surely that’s got to change very quickly.
