Dare to pursue your dreams, live like there is no tomorrow, have fun, but not at the expense of others and love unconditionally.
— Cathy K. Esker

Small town sensation Dakota Danielle broke into the country scene in March with the release of her debut single “One Church,” followed by a music video premiere on The Country Network. The highly relatable, slightly nostalgic song is self-penned and produced by Mookie & Evan with Michael J. Clouse III (Jeff Buckley, The Rolling Stones’ Nicky Hopkins, Thin Lizzy’s Marco Mendoza). Influenced by artists ranging from Dolly Partonto Chris Stapleton and Aretha Franklin, the 25-year-old singer songwriter will bring a fresh twist to country music.

The Illinois native is taking Nashville by storm after completing a degree in Commercial Songwriting at Middle Tennessee State University. Grinding to make a name for herself, Dakota’s unparalleled work ethic is evident with her regular appearances at Music City’s hottest venues. With a guitar in one hand and a pen in the other, her goal is to inspire and heal fans through her deeply personal, yet charismatic music.
