Next Indie By Design Is Wednesday

Danielle LoPrestiDanielle LoPrestiI met Danielle LoPresti and saw her sing with her band, Danielle and The Masses, at the very first of the four excellent Naked Songwriters Showcases that were produced by Gary Hyde, Dave Howard and Tom Boyd during 2002. In March of this year, Danielle invited me to attend a Women's History Month Celebration that featured a dozen or so musical acts. While there I shot the picture on the left of Danielle running things, as well as the one on the right of her singing.

DANIELLE LO PRESTI AND THE MASSES: 22 MountainsDanielle and The Masses have a CD out called "22 Mountains." You can listen to clips from all 13 of the songs on the album by clicking on the CD here.

Together with her bandmate Kelly Bowen, Danielle co-produces Indie By Design showcases at various venues, and the next one will be this Wednesday night, July 7, at Humphrey's Backstage Lounge on Shelter Island, after the Lucinda Williams concert on the outdoor stage.

Here's more info from an e-mail Danielle sent me:

Happy July Everybody!
