Born in 1992, Danielle Robert is a singer-songwriter hailing from Pain Court, Ontario, a small francophone village in southwestern Ontario. Danielle holds grade nine piano accreditation with The Royal Conservatory of Music. She is currently entering her second year in the Honours Bachelor of Music Program at Wilfrid Laurier University, pursuing a degree in music therapy. Her musical creations are quoted as “earthy and organic” and are classified in the indie/pop category. Danielle is currently in the process of producing her first EP.

At the age of seventeen, Danielle’s composition, Julie’s Song was selected to be compiled on the Moose Trax 5 CD from the Haliburton Broadcast Group which gave her song airplay on twelve stations across Central and Northern Ontario. This song was also translated in French, winning her the "Idol en essor" music competition against other students in the French-catholic school district of southwestern Ontario (CSDECSO). Danielle’s songwriting abilities were also spotlighted on TFO’s, “Musimission” during which time she participated in Montreal’s sixth annual “Quand ca nous chante” festival. In 2011, Danielle was a finalist at Wilfrid Laurier University’s Battle of the Bands and has opened for names including Canadian Indie Rock band, Will Currie and the Country French as well as Kai.
