Danielle Peck Biography

Danielle Peck Biography

Born in Jacksonville, NC, the daughter of a U.S. Marine, Danielle grew up in Coshocton, OH, where the family had strong musical roots. Her mother's side of the family traveled and sang in churches. Her father's parents and grandparents were steeped in country music, playing dances in the area. Danielle could sing before she could talk and by the time she was three she would sit on a counter banging on pots and pans as her extended family played country music. The first song she learned to sing was Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues," a song that has been part of her live show to this day. She wrote her first song before she was 10 and made cassette labels for her imaginary Danielle Peck records, complete with song titles and cover art. She sang in church both as a soloist and in the choir. At age 16, she joined a local band, the Neon Moon Band, and played bars in her native Coshocton, Ohio area. At 18, her dad bought her a sound & light system that the family jokingly referred to as her 'college tuition'. When she graduated from high school, she hit the road leading her own band adding regional fairs and festivals to the schedule. After several years on the bar and festival circuit Danielle made the decision to chase the dream and make the jump to Nashville. She quickly took a Nashville job waiting tables and spent the rest of her time working on her songwriting.

Soon after her Nashville arrival she met publisher Clay Myers who recognized her talent and helped secure a songwriting deal with Barbara Orbison's Still Working Music. She soon began writing with staff writers Clay Mills and Tommy Lee James, as well as other established hit writers like Blair Daly and Taylor Rhodes. Those writing sessions would ultimately form the basis for her debut album. That release had to wait, however. Signed to a recording contract with DreamWorks Records by executive Scott Borchetta, Danielle's album was a casualty of that company's merger with Universal. Borchetta, however, wouldn't let his belief in her music die and when he later left Universal to form his own Big Machine Records, Danielle was one of his first signings.In 2005, she released her very first single from the album called "I Don't". The song peaked at #28 on the Hot Country Songs chart. Peck released her self-titled debut album in June 2006. The album peaked at #23 on the U.S. Billboard Top Country Albums charts. The album produced two more Top 30 singles in "Findin' a Good Man" and "Isn't That Everything". Peck released her fourth single in early 2007. Titled "Bad For Me", the single (which was co-written by Australian country singer Sherrié Austin) was intended to be the lead-off to an upcoming second album. "Bad For Me" failed to reach Top 40; a release date for Peck's second album was initially reported to be set for October 23, 2007; then was pushed to January 15, 2008, and has now been set for a late summer release with no definite date announced.
