Canadian Singer/Songwriter, Daniella Watters

Canadian award winning, Daniella Watters has been singing since she could talk. She began vocal lessons at the tender age of 7, recorded her first song at 11, and by age 13 she was touring Canada and the US with her girl pop group Untamed. One of Daniella’s most memorable experiences with Untamed was when she played in front of 10,000 screaming fans in Toronto’s Skydome (now Rogers Centre). Her taste in music has evolved, grown and adapted over the years to suit different contexts and moods. Currently Daniella writes R&B with a Soul influence that is infused with inflections of pop, jazz, and Motown flavors.

Now a mainstay of Canada’s prestigious Canadian Music Week, Daniella first entered the competition in 2012 when she won the Street Idol Contest awarded by RDR Music. This gave her the opportunity to showcase her single “Missing My Love” from her EP, which was placed on several radio stations across the country, such as Proud FM 103.9 and CBC. CBC is now playing “No One Could Love Me Better” on several of their programs.

At Canadian Music Week 2013 Daniella played two sold out shows which were listed as “must see CMW performances” by New Canadian Music. Her shows were also sponsored by the clothing store Fresh Collective and reviewed by Winehouse Magazine, who said her performance was “one of the best R&B shows of CMW.”

Daniella is currently writing, recording, and self-funding her first solo album. The album has influences of R&B, pop, jazz, soul, and funk combining her love of multiple genres into one cohesive piece of art. The first song Daniella has recorded for her upcoming album, “No One Could Love Me Better”, produced by Marcus Kane, which is about meeting Mr. Right on paper, but feeling uncertain about them even though they are “perfect”. She is currently in post production with two more of her songs produced by Nicolas Londono, “Never Will Die” which is a mid tempo song about your soul living forever & “Don’t Do Me Like That”, which is an uplifting upbeat song with aggressive lyrics about standing up for yourself when someone treats you wrong. Daniella just finished co-writing a new track with Ron Allen called “Til There’s Nothing Left of Us”. This song has a spacey and gritty sound with elements notable in a John Legend production. It has a big soaring chorus that really highlights her range and it has lyrics that reflect nostalgia and love.
