Danielle Miraglia

Bad Poetry

(independent)

Record Review by TC Krentz

Danielle Miraglia's debut record Bad Poetry is an outstanding jumpstart for this Boston musician. Traditional folk with a sometime somber, sometime country, sometime coffeehouse influence.

A very smooth voice tops a nice basic set of grooves. Her styles fit into the genre of Ricki Lee Jones/Tracy Chapman, although her voice itself is more like Patsy Cline meets Ani DiFranco.

Danielle's lyrics are varied; flirtatious, clever and occasionally shows dark observations at life's truths.

All around us, people shack up and marry
In the hope of finding security
Unaware of the weight they'll have to carry
They dive in so innocently
Hold out their wrists to receive the chains
Never anticipate the future mundane
