Danielle Doyle - The Cartographer's Wife

Newcomer Danielle Doyle has been garnering much attention among audiences and fellow musicians, since she first emerged on the scene at the beginning of 2009. Danielle has been named a 2009 Mountain Stage NewSong Youth Winner, a winner of the weekly Lizard Lounge Open Mic challenge and has earned some incredible supporting slots including opening for Loudon Wainwright III, Dawn Landes, and Heather Masse (of The Wailin’ Jennys).  A true performer, Danielle’s songs are best heard when she’s singing them live, when beautiful melodies, “sultry alt-country” vocals, and rich lyrics are interspersed with relaxed and comic banter that makes you feel like you’ve known the young songwriter forever. 

Danielle will be touring the Northeast throughout the spring in support of her debut album The Cartographer’s Wife.  The album is a collection of songs about love, home, longing, and a little bit of murder. While some of these stories were inspired by real life – a failed move to California (“Roots/Wings”), college years in Ohio (“Lake Erie”) –others were borrowed from imagined women – one who waits at home while her husband crosses the globe (“The Cartographer’s Wife”), one who’s fleeing from the apocalypse (“Pompeii”) and one who murders her lover when the going gets rough (“Salome”).

While the stories took years of crafting, The Cartographer’s Wife seemed to come together rather quickly. When it came time to hit the studio, Danielle enlisted friends and fellow Boston area up n’ comers to play on the album, including singer-songwriters Beth Colegrove and Meg Smallidge, members of Garlic & Moonshine, and John Nolan (of Flightless Buttress) who produced the album.  The ten tracks were recorded live over three days at the Hi n’ Dry Recording Studio in Somerville, MA.
