the line where folk/roots meets rock/blues, Miraglia
has a voice that can go from a raspy come-hither
purr to an Etta James-esque powerhouse belt, although
she may be best known for her lead thumb —
a heavy, thumping strike on her Gibson that’s
backdrop percussion in itself." - Lauren Daley
- The Boston Globe
is a dynamic and captivating musician; her rich
soulful voice and blues guitar mastery resonate
in a performance both rare and unforgettable."
- Paul Patchel, State Street Blues Festival - Media,
genius of Glory Junkies is that Miraglia successfully
pokes fun at a proverbial “selfie nation,”
while also fully owning that tendency. Glory Junkies
offers up deeply narrative lyricism and carefully
crafted compositions...Glory Junkies boasts a song
about reality TV, and one (the title track) that
pokes fun at immortalizing one’s own image.
Others stray into more personal territory, hitting
close to home on Miraglia’s family dynamic,
but the concept of the album remains a mainstay
throughout.” - Liz Rowley, BestNewBands

just outside of Boston in Revere, MA, where its
famous beach is better known for girls with big
hair than its history as a popular tourist attraction,
Danielle was raised on a variety of popular music,
from her parent's Motown records to the classic
rock influences like The Rolling Stones and Led
Zeppelin that encouraged her to learn to play guitar
at thirteen. A passion for the arts and an outstanding
gift for writing lead her to Emerson College in
Boston's downtown theater district. After graduating
with a degree in Creative Writing, she put her writing
skills, originally intended for novels, towards
songwriting and began performing at open mike nights
in the Boston area. Here she "found her tribe"
as she describes it and set out on a full time musical
debut full length record "Nothing Romantic"
was a breakthrough for Miraglia as a serious songwriting
force, who could put into words what so many feel
- a true explorer of the complexities of the human
condition. Jon Sobel of Blogcritics.com described
her song "You Don't Know Nothin'" as "One
of the best new folk songs I've heard in years.
Its depiction and dissection of human misunderstanding
is both sharp and tender. All you need to know about
what drives people apart and what draws them together
can be witnessed in a few hours spent in a bar.
Many of us feel something along those lines, but
Danielle Miraglia is that rare songwriter who can
put it into words."
second release “Box of Troubles,” explores
the highs and lows that life has to offer with bare
bones instrumentation. Alternate Root says “Danielle
Miraglia’s guitar work keeps Delta traditions
alive. Her steady thumb and playing style trace
a direct line to the blues of the field and chicken
shacks. Vocally, Danielle’s voice digs in,
twisting within the delivery, seeming to break but
more likely soaring before the fall. ‘Box
of Troubles’ balances good times with the
bad, her characters' roles’ defined and believable.”
