The South Florida native had music in her blood, singing from a young age. As an early teen, DaniLeigh recorded YouTube covers of songs like Musiq Soulchild's "So Beautiful," though she wasn't quite ready for the big time. "I was really shy," she admits, "and I didn't realize the unique sound of my voice until later on." It wasn't until a few years later when she moved to Los Angeles at 16 that DaniLeigh began harnessing her craft. In LA she found her footing in the music industry, starting with dancing. "I was dancing in music videos, commercials, you name it," she recalls. "From there, I met a lot of producers onset and just networked."
