Danielle Ate the Sandwich is the nom de guerre of Danielle Anderson, who is an awesome young songwriter with a wicked sense of humor.
Some have dubbed her as "Joni Mitchell meets Sarah Silverman". To come up with a name like Danielle Ate the Sandwich implies a quirky sense of humor to me. So cool.
Obviously Danielle is a well organized self starter who tours the nation, licenses songs to TV shows and really understands todays media.
But over an above all that what it comes down to is the talent. And that is abundant.
First check out four tracks from her new album, Like A King. The album would make a worthy addition to your library.
Let's start with the title track from the new album.
Like A King Live at Groovacious - March 27 2012 - Cedar City Utah
Women Who Loved You
Faith In A Man
The Have Nots This is a new song by Danielle Ate the Sandwich. The final version of the song is on the album 'Like a King', releasing June 5th, 2012.
Next up check out one of her excellent covers, anybody who covers Tom Waits this well has to be OK in my book.
Shiver Me Timbers
And finally today check out this video for an earlier album.
Where the Good Ones Go Where the Good Ones Go is on the album, Two Bedroom Apartment by Danielle Ate the Sandwich
