HARLEAN PALFREY born as Daniela Krause is a bilingual Independent Singer Songwriter based in Ireland registered with the Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO), Phonographic Performance Ireland (PPI) and the Irish Association of Songwriters, Composers & Authors (IASCA). Music has always been a huge part of the singer's life. Daniela spent much of her childhood performing in choirs, even receiving professional vocal mentoring from a former opera singer as Alto (E Minor). At all times she’s been fiercely independent and raised to work hard for her goals.
Daniela is influenced by artists like Lana del Rey, Evanescence, M83 and German Acts such as Alexa Feser, Lotte and Yvonne Catterfeld. Daniela used to support bands as a background-singer, performing 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. In May 2020 Daniela announced her new official stage name, HARLEAN PALFREY which is inspired by the birth name of actress Jean Harlow and a worker council who revolutionized the saddle industry in the UK.
A brand new 8-track bilingual album (English/German) has been recorded in July 2020 at Windmill Lane Recording Studios, Dublin prior to its music store release on
30th October 2020. The first German-Rock Single "Schattenträume" of the album has been released into stores on 21/08/2020 followed by her second lead Single, love-ballad "Quatervois" which is also available on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Deezer and many more.
In addition to her music commitment, Daniela voluntarily supported charity Threshold Ireland with raising awareness of the homelessness issue in the country and is always 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.
