Miss Danby

Northumbrian musician/singer/songwriter Miss Danby has been playing in bands, up and down the country, since the late nineties. A self taught multi-instrumentalist she started out as a haphazard punk drummer in the South of England; eventually moving up North to the other side of the rhythm section as a bassist.

In between regular gigs she could be found on secret stages with choral singers, improvising behind jazz drummers, bashing out irregular bass chords with Bulgarian bagpipers and much more. Ever the experimentalist, the last few years have seen her attention focused on vocal and songwriting abilities as the front woman of Newcastle based band Miss Danby & the What. With a new musical project in the works, she looks forward to seeing where the residency with Anna Meredith takes her.
