Delaney Danyelle Daniels

Singer and model, De’Laney Daniels is a force to be reckoned with. Due to her natural ability to cross over to any genre of music, she is not considered your typical artist. Delaney is most known by her innate beauty, infectious personality and melodious voice, causing you to fall in love at first sight.
Born and raised in the “All American City” of Buffalo, NY, De’Laney has worked meticulously to build and refine her craft. Buffalo, NY is known as one of the top cities in America for it’s architecture. All of the major American architects of the 19th and early 20th century built masterpieces in Buffalo, most of which are still standing. It would be fitting to proclaim that De'Laney is creating her own musical masterpieces that will also stand the test of time for generations to come.
During De'Laney’s formative years, her grandmother Helen Thompson, a former singer, introduced her to many genres of music ranging from classical, jazz and pop, to gospel and the blues. One day while vacationing with her family at Disney World, De’Laney began to sing. It was in that moment, her family realized she had a gift. To cultivate her sound she began singing for her church congregation and providing backup harmonies for the choir.
Throughout high school De'Laney’s first passion was modeling and at fifteen she won her first award for model of the year. In 2013 she took her modeling career to the next level and traveled to New York City with the internationally known image and performance school, Susan Makai's Personal Best. There she competed against 1500 models at the International Model and Talent Association Convention (IMTA’s). She emerged from the rest of the competition and won 2nd runner up for Swimsuit Model of the Year and Commercial Print Model of the Year. In addition, she received 3 honorable mentions in the categories of Best Female Singer, Best Runway Walk, and Jeans.
De'Laney realized modeling was just a stepping-stone for what her true calling was, singing. Her uncle, who is heavily involved in the Canadian music industry, took notice of De’Laney’s talent and started having her perform in Toronto to gain notoriety. Her unique style and powerful voice commands attention everywhere she performs. When De’Laney sang, her hometown began to listen. De’Laney has had the pleasure of working with some of Buffalo’s best talent, singer Drea and Buffalo Music Hall of Fame Inductee, Linda Appleby, to name a few.
It is easily understood in conversation with De'Laney when she expresses what music means to her: "All I can say is that I love music; no matter how I’m feeling it’s like medicine it makes me feel better."
The musical artistry of Aretha Franklin, Beyoncé, Michael Jackson, Etta James, and Tina Turner influenced De'Laney’s opus. The determination to increase her exposure in the music industry is unwavering as she has Grammy Awards in her sight. Similar to her Leo zodiac sign, when you look into the eyes of this regal songstress, you will see the hunger of a lioness and success is her prey.
