Danielle Kane is passionate about the joyful and healing power of singing.

Previous stage name Danielle Bixby, nee Danielle Busch, is a true singer, a classically trained recording artist and transformational sound healer. She has sung it all: Opera, musical theater, oratorio, pop, folk, rock, jazz, chant and inspirational. From theatrical stages to concert halls to spiritual venues, Danielle has been moving and inspired audiences for 35 years.

Danielle has appeared as soloist with choirs, orchestras and in European cathedrals, starred in professional musical theater, has been a session singer in Nashville and has even sung backups for a Las Vegas Elvis Act! She has toured across North America, Europe and more recently, the San Francisco Bay Area. She sings cabaret, Big Band, jazz, and contemporary music at numerous corporate, private and social events. In her concerts (such as Deeper Still Concert Experience) she draws from her vast repertoire to ride the full range of human expression to sweep the audience into a powerful transformative experience.  

Her voice has been featured on many albums, such as Sterling Ovations, and is often hired as a session singer for commissioned works. Called ‘The One-Take-Wonder’ from a young age, she is a go-to for composers and producers alike.

Danielle has recorded two full length albums: Pure Imagination, and her latest release Deeper Still. Deeper Still is a collection of songs to comfort and inspire. Learn more about the Deeper Still Project.

Phantom: Peninsula Civic Light Opera’s production of Maury Yeston’s much superior musical score to the story of the Phantom of the Paris Opera was made special of the impressive vocals of the glorious soprano of Danielle Bixby, who is definitely ready for the big-time!

Inspirational Singer

Danielle has been called The Voice of the Divine Feminine, singing the full range of human expression and rising ever again to affirm that all is well. She performs and songleads at churches, conferences, and other spiritual events.

Teacher

Teaching others has been Danielle’s joy for over three decades, and her many private students have distinguished themselves in various projects and gone onto study music and perform professionally. She has served as a music and choir director and facilitates vocal workshops and clinics. 

Drawing from many systems, Danielle developed her own vocal program, The Empowered Singer, technical training for the dynamic voice, which she shares with her students, workshop participants and her popular Singing Makes You Happy class. Danielle also draws upon her soundhealing brand, Transformational Voice Work, in which she encourages singing and sounding as a healing and spiritual practice.

 
Danielle’s delight and joy in singing is infectious! She can be funny and poignant and often deep. She approaches singing from every angle— technical, emotional, inspirational, spiritual and physical. She helps you open to the full experience of singing
