Danaïdes Shares Her Life and Musical Influences


A spectrum (plural spectra or spectrums) is a condition that is not limited to a specific set of values but can vary, without steps, across a continuum.
In simpler terms, spectrum is - a broad range of related objects, values or ideas - It is also the title of Canada based artist Danaïdes' upcoming album.

Without revealing to much, the musician, who has two singles out at the moment that are doing relatively well for her said the album will, to a greater extend, reflect her influences.

"I am currently working on a complete album that will be called Spectrum, it is largely  a representation of the various influences I have, both in life and in music.
"For now, only 2 titles have been released: Sky and Muñeca. They are available on my Soundcloud page for anyone who is looking to download and listen: (https://soundcloud.com/johanna-marie-silvestri)", said Danaïdes.

A lot of the influences that Danaïdes talks about were of course picked up along her travels, from sampling different cultures and rubbing shoulders with some of the industry's seasoned names.
The artist, whose real name is Johanna-Marie Silvestri is fluent in 3 languages, French, English and Spanish, all of which she uses in her music.
"I have lived in Montréal for 2 years now. I currently work for a Montréal video game studio called Ubisoft. I lived for several years in Paris and a year in Chile, Valparaiso, something that has influenced my music a lot and made it multi-cultural. I am fluent in french, spanish & english, my songs are in these 3 different languages also", she said.



She also spoke highly of producer, Dre Blach, whom she worked with on one of her singles titled Muñeca.
"I have worked in the local independent music industry of Montréal for about a year now even though I have been writing songs for many years. I had the opportunity to work with an artist that has more than 20 years of experience in the Montréal scene: Dre Black who produced my second song: Muñeca", said the 26 year old.

Besides being able to share her music with the rest of the world, Danaïdes expressed a strong desire to remain an independent artist and build her own music empire.
"My objective is to be completely independent and build my own studio in order to release my album the way I want it to. I have no other particular goals other than sharing my songs with the world", said Danaïdes.

We, and surely a section of our readers as well, will be patiently waiting to sample this beautiful young lady's album when it finally does hit the market.
