Danielle Miraglia

Preceding Matthew Sweet on the Field Stage will be Danielle Miraglia, who will come armed with a strong, steady thumb on an old Gibson guitar, an infectious stomp-box rhythm and harmonica with tunes ranging from heart-felt to socially conscious that will move both your heart and hips. On her third and latest album, Glory Junkies, Danielle, who’s from the greater Boston area, is joined by a killer cast of musicians blending the classic-rock vibe of The Rolling Stones and Janis Joplin with Danielle’s signature lyrical ability to explore human nature at its best and worst. Bonnie Raitt fans will also be impressed. Danielle was nominated for a 2015 Boston Music Award for Singer-Songwriter of the Year. The Boston Globe sums it up this way: “Straddling the line where folk/roots meets rock/blues, Miraglia has a voice that can go from a raspy come-hither purr to an Etta James-esque powerhouse belt, although she may be best known for her lead thumb – a heavy, thumping strike on her Gibson that’s backdrop percussion in itself.”
