Vancouver’s Bre McDaniel is a singer-songwriter and visual artist with a voice that’s been described as “magic on toast”. Her recordings are a mix of smokey folk-pop, indie rock, and bare acoustics that capture vivid imagery of our environment, and local stories. With similarities to Neko Case, Cat Power and Feist, she has been found gracing the stages of The Vancouver Writers Festival, Khatsahlano Fest, cafes and living room carpets from BC to PEI. Her debut full length album ‘Howl’ (Orphan Girl Records) explores how we need the tonic of wildness. “Musically, the album is as deep as its thematic connections.” -- The Georgia Straight “McDaniel’s voice has an inviting warmth.” -- The Permanent Rain Press
