Daniela Krause alias HARLEAN PALFREY is a bilingual Independent Artist and Playlist Curator who is at the fulcrum of an evolving English and German Alternative Pop Rock scene. HARLEAN PALFREY is a very different and uniquely wired musician who isn’t afraid to break the rules and push the boundaries of our perception with her deeply layered lyricism and well-crafted production. Based in Ireland, HARLEAN PALFREY has a drive, a focus, and a tenacity that leads her to become a relentless and unstoppable force in the independent pop circuit.


HARLEAN PALFREY is making music that is driven by a desire to motivate, inspire, and tell her story her way.

She grew up as a musically inclined child often performing in choirs, and even receiving professional vocal mentoring from a former opera singer as an Alto, E-Minor. For HARLEAN PALFREY, music is the vehicle by which she expresses herself authentically. She writes lyrics that draw from her experiences and by using her musical acumen, she articulates stories and shared perspectives that connects with audiences across the spectrum.


The artist combines various unique and experimental sounds with her intricate wordplay and often dabbles in multiple genres resulting in Pop Rock Alternative centered fusions that are still firmly stitched together by emotive undertones. 

HARLEAN PALFREY has multiple projects in her repertoire, most notably the album dubbed “Twists of L”. A new bilingual release is anticipated for 2022 which will showcase her distinct lyrical and storytelling prowess. Her talents have garnered her collaborations with established music composers and artists like Anthony Little, Krysta Youngs.



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.
