"Danielle Nicole" (born Danielle Nicole Schnebelen) is an American blues /soul musician from Kansas City, Missouri, United States.
Danielle comes from generations of singers. Her grandmother, Evelyn Skinner, was a big band singer. Danielle’s mother, Lisa Swedlund, taught her everything she knew while growing up and listening to all different kinds of music from the Everly Brothers to the B-52s. It wasn’t until she was 12 that Danielle took to the stage for the first time singing, Koko Taylor’s “Never Trust a Man” at a Blues for Schools program that her parents were playing at Englewood Elementary. From then on, she knew music would be her passion for the rest of her life.
In March of 1999, she started her own band, Fresh Brew, with Kansas City music veterans Steve Gronemeyer, Steve Hicks, Chuck Payne and Terry Roney. They performed for four years and represented Kansas City in the International Blues Challenge. It was during this time that Danielle and her brothers Nick and Kris began talking about a family band that would eventually become Trampled Under Foot.
As Trampled Under Foot wound down after 13 years, Danielle formed her own band, and made her solo debut album in 2015. Fanart Banner
