The Danberrys

The Danberrys

'I can’t get up there and sing something that doesn’t move me,' says Dorothy Daniel, the tambourine-shaking, stargazing, breezy voiced front woman that makes up half of The Danberrys. Hailing from the surrounds of Nashville TN, Dorothy and husband Ben DeBerry (guitar/vocals) come together to create a unique entwining of styles. Acoustically driven, their sound spirals through bluegrass with the backbeat of funk, the patient lope of blues, and glimpses of pop.

Their latest album 'Give & Receive', was recorded at Zac Brown's Southern Ground studio in Nashville, TN and was released in June 2016. The album received two Independent Music Award nominations for Best Americana Album and Best Country Song (Let Me Ride), and one win for Best Bluegrass Song (Long Song).

The Danberrys sing songs rich in pastoral imagery, about overcoming demons, being washed clean and starting anew, and love in its many forms. In conversation with both Ben and Dorothy, spirituality, and the concept of blooming into the full power of your brain and heart are topics that often surface, naturally suffusing into their lyrics with clever subtlety - more hinting than hollering.

‘Give and Receive’, 2012’s self titled ‘The Danberrys’, and 2011’s ‘The Company Store’ feature a similar cast of musicians. All three harness the unique skills of producer/multi instrumentalist Ethan Ballinger (Lee Ann Womack, Missy Raines) and fiddle player Christian Sedelmeyer (Jerry Douglas,10 String Symphony), with bassist Sam Grisman (Lee Ann Womack, David Grisman) and banjoist Kyle Tuttle (Jeff Austin Band, Hayseed Dixie) coming in on ‘Give and Receive’.

Live, Dorothy is a fiend for the tambourine: ‘I locked myself in our music room for hours’ she says, describing her honing of the much overlooked instrument. Learning to play, she would follow the band Blue Mother Tupelo from gig to gig, gleaning techniques from Indianola-born Micol Davis and recordings of Dr John, the Meters, and Alan Toussaint.

Having embraced bluegrass in 2008 at The 5 Spot (bar in East Nashville) weekly bluegrass jam, Ben’s acoustic guitar playing is a lynchpin in the Danberrys sound. His solid playing and grasp of theory leads to interesting harmonic shifts - letting their music straddle and dip into the crannies between genres.

The Danberrys have appeared at many festivals throughout the Southeast – including the CMA Festival, the International Bluegrass Music Association festival, the Americana Music Festival and many more. In 2017, they will embark on their first international tours to the UK and New Zealand.
