Infectious, genre-defying music
Collaborating across multiple genres ranging from roots/rock and pop to hip-hop and electronic dance music, classifying Daphne Willis in musical terms is no easy task. With infectious melodies delivered with lyrical precision and honesty, the songs and performances are sincere, compelling and relevant. Raised in Chicago, Daphne now calls Nashville home and cites influences as varied as Elvis Costello and Michael Jackson, but her musical output cleverly incorporates such inspirations into a style that is refreshing and contemporary in a way that suits her songs best. With more than 1,000 shows under her belt over the past several years, Daphne has spread her music to passionate fans across the nation. Her infectious personality combined with her incredible talent caught the eyes and ears of Sony/ATV Music Publishing in early 2016, and they quickly signed Daphne to a worldwide publishing agreement. This partnership has resulted in several of her songs being recorded by other artists and used in commercial, film and TV productions, such as nationwide ad campaigns for Clinique, Microsoft and Xfinity as well as on TV shows, One Tree Hill and Empire.
Daphne’s performance is at 7:30 p.m. before the Barenaked Ladies concert, which requires a ticket purchase.
