With hard-hitting, salacious lyrics, Dani VeXXX mixes her East Coast roots with a West Coast vibe. A New England native born to two immigrant Jamaicans, Dani was raised between Queens and the Pocono mountains. While her boisterous lyrics might make you think otherwise, she consistently felt displaced, on a quest for a creative home where she could... finally fit in. A backstage audition for dance turned into choreography, then turned into songwriting, and she finally found her passion, and most importantly – her voice. We all love and hate things about ourselves, but Dani takes the things she loves and hates about herself and turns them into art that could make you laugh and cry and definitely blush. Listening to her lyrics should come with a disclaimer – Not For The Weak of Heart.
