At the beach, life is different.
Time doesn´t move from hour to hour
but mood to moment.
We live by the currents, plan by the tides
and follow the sun.
Daniela, professionnally known as Harlean Palfrey, is an Independent Singer Songwriter based in Galway, Ireland registered with the Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO), Phonographic Performance Ireland (PPI) and the Irish Association of Songwriters, Composers & Authors (IASCA).
Daniela is influenced by artists like Lana del Rey, Florence and the Machine, Evanescence and enjoyed a professional private vocal education by Harald Lummer, a former opera singer who coached her as an Alto from 2003 until 2007 focussing on Musical/Pop/Rock. Daniela used to support bands as a background-singer and regularly performed at Open-Mics.
Whilst publishing her ballad "oceanblue" in June 2019 in light of the Galway Races, she successfully collaborated with other songwriters and producers in Europe and the USA for her Debut EP "Kiss" that she initially released under her own name, "Daniela". Up until today, she has worked with numerous producers like TE Music Group, Rolen Music Group, Anthony Little, Krysta Youngs to name a few.
A brand new 8-track album is currently in progress and will be recorded in the famous Windmill Lane Recording Studios, Dublin prior to its release in Summer 2020.
Daniela´s artist name is inspired by the birth name of actress Jean Harlow and a worker council who revolutionized the saddle industry in the UK.
In addition to her music commitment, Daniela voluntarily supports charity Threshold Ireland with raising awareness of the homelessness issue in the country and is dedicated to #MakeaDifference.
What People Say
Daniela, professionally known as Harlean Palfrey, contacted me in early October 2019 in relation to an EP of original tracks that she wanted to record and I have to say that from start to finish she was an exceptional person to work with. Firstly, she is extremely organised and gave me specific dates that she wanted to record on. I wasn’t available for one of them, but she was flexible and we agreed on another date.
On analysing the songs and hearing a bit about the background behind the songs, I learned that these were quite personal songs. I regard vulnerability as true strength and was surprised at the way Daniela so easily got out of the way of the songs and took direction. She was able to take any suggestion to help improve convey the message of the song, which helped to make them truly great! She has an amazingly beautiful rich Alto voice too!
Overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending working with Daniela alias Harlean Palfrey.
Her willingness to learn from others and work to make the project the very best it can be is model that all artists should follow.
I hope to work with her again in the near future.
