Daphne enjoys exploring all aspects of Art from music to painting to photography & writing. Originally from Texas, she started singing at a young age and explored different genres of music through her college years. After graduation from university, she relocated to Los Angeles and was inspired after listening to Shawn Colvin’s “Live ’88” album to pick up a guitar and start writing songs.
Since her initial yoga class almost 15 years ago, she has merged her spiritual practice with her contemporary folk singer/songwriter style. She studied music at The University of Texas at Austin, The Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago and kirtan music with Jai Uttal and Daniel Paul in Guatemala. She has travelled extensively sharing her music in Europe, North America, Central America, Asia and beyond.
Daphne is inspired by her yoga practice, her travels and the diverse, compassionate human beings she meets worldwide to continue creating and sharing her soulful blend of folk/pop/spiritual music. She is committed to expanding consciousness on the planet through global community events focusing on music, yoga, dance and all forms of art that inspire peace in action.
She has released music on Shiva Rea’s yoga music compilations, Jala and Nataraja. She recorded her first solo EP on the island of Bali entitled, Mata. She is currently touring in support of her new full length album, Finding Water, recorded on the island of Kauai.
