Dani Young is a city girl who moved to the outback and fell in love with country music. Mentored by Aboriginal elder Warren H Williams, she quickly turned heads in the industry with a Golden Guitar nomination in 2017.. Dani once again talk on Big Brekkie about her new song “Outback Lullaby” Dani comes from a diverse musical background, winning Best Young Jazz Act at the 2015 Northern Territory Jazz and Blues Festival and singing with international jazz star James Morrison in concert. She was also featured on iconic Australian rock band GANGgajang’s 2016 single ‘Circles in the Sand'.
Outback Lullaby is the latest release for Golden Guitar finalist Dani Young, produced and co written by Australian Idol winner Damien Leith. The song is bold fusion of country story-telling with a dreamy soundscape that evokes visions of a night sleeping under the stars. “It’s a lullaby with a whimsical feeling of being in your own little universe, looking up at the stars. It has moments where it’s pumping along, then it brings you back into the sleepy stillness of the outback.” Leith said. The uniquely Australian song creates its own place within the country genre, and showcases Young’s signature high notes combined with her defiantly creative songwriting.
