Danielle “Dani” Mendez is an upcoming songwriter, producer, and artist from South Jersey. At the age of eight, Dani’s parents realized her ability to play piano by ear. Shortly after she began studying classical piano. As a shy fourteen year old, Dani gravitated towards composing and songwriting as an outlet. While in high school, her instrumental compositions caught the attention of entertainment directors within the Atlantic City casinos, landing her the opportunity to perform. During her college career at Fordham University, she continued to play within the tri-state area. In May 2014, Danielle won the Opera Center of America’s Young Composer’s Competition for her classical composition “Juan Rey.” Her composition was featured in a performance by the Adaskin String Trio at the NYC National Opera Center of America. Also in 2014, Dani collaborated on the smooth jazz project, “Always With U” with renown drummer Bernard Davis (Roy Ayers, Roberta Flack, Jimmy McGriff, Mariah Carey). While in college, Dani started becoming more serious about music production which led to her working at Warner Bros. Records and Atlantic Records. Dani is currently working in France as a producer and arranger while recording her debut EP.
