DANIELLE MOORE – HERITAGE OF SOUL

DANIELLE MOORE – HERITAGE OF SOUL

Danielle Moore is the front woman presence in dance band and live outfit Crazy P. Danielle first cut her teeth on the disco scene at the age of 9, when her mum took her to see Sister Sledge at The Manchester Apollo; the experience obviously stuck with her as her pursuit of music and dancing has only grown stronger. Danielle has been a member of Crazy P since 2000, when Jim Baron and Chris Todd discovered her belting out Shirley Bassey whilst djing to a room of intrigued party revellers. The lads asked her if she wanted to audition for the band, things went well and the rest is history! Since then they have released albums The Wicked is Music, 24 hour psychedelic freakout, A Night on Earth, Stop Space Return and most recent When We On. Their music has seen them appear live from Maidevale Studios on Pete Tongs show and has taken them all over the world performing everywhere from Russia, States, Australia and Europe…they continue this year with dates pouring in. Danielle can be seen “high kicking” at festivals over the summer and djing worldwide!

Seven albums, a career spanning over 20 years and yet Crazy P remain stronger and more relevant than ever. Funny how the tides of time turn, and how the sounds of a typically British type of house and disco are now more du jour then ever before. Way before the rise in prominence of disco, house and soulful pop Crazy P have spearheaded the revival (and perpetuation) of these sounds since 1997.

Their seventh album ‘Walk Dance Talk Sing’ was released in 2015, to great acclaim, on their own imprint and in partnership with !K7. In the time since the songwriting, production, and performing nucleus of Danielle Moore, Chris Todd, and James Baron have been constantly touring with their DJ and Soundsystem sets and live band shows. Regarded as one of dance music’s finest and genuinely live, performers out there.

Crazy P have managed to both uphold the heritage of soul, musicianship and songwriting that is an essential part of the fabric of house and disco. They stay current, letting those fundamental elements of the sound inform and mark out their take on the club floors and younger audiences that they consistently turn inside out. Their never diminishing love of a dancefloor sits firmly alongside their immaculate craft of writing and production. New audiences are, without exception, blown away the first time they see a Crazy P live show.

2016’s touring schedule took the band around the world, culminating with a live show in Bali, streamed on the prestigious Boiler Room. This year Crazy P proudly released their ‘Truelight’ EP on the legendary Classic. This was followed by a summer of festivals and an ambition realised when the band recently performed live at Londons Roundhouse.

It is widely expected we will see new material emerge in 2018. The anticipation is set and the bar is high…
