NASHVILLE, TN. – (June 25, 2018) – Aspiring, performer and recording artist, Dani-elle Kleha, has been nominated for multiple independent artist awards for her talent and music recordings. She recently received nominations from the 2018 Josie Music Awards in five categories; Entertainer of the Year, Song of the Year for “Get Back Up,” Female Artist of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year and Music Video of the Year for “Joke’s On You.” Dani-elle has also been nominated by the 2018 Steamtown Music Awards in three categories; Country Act of the Year, Album of the Year for “Eleven,” and Song of the Year “Jokes On You.” She won the 2017 Josie Music Awards for “Female Artist of the Year” and also in 2017 was recognized as an “Emerging Artist” during CMA Music Festival in Nashville. She was the recipient of the 2016 Josie Music Awards’ highest honor of “Modern Female Country Artist of the Year,” where she beat out more than three dozen other nominees and won the 2015 Josie Music Awards for Rising Artist Award in Nashville, TN and 2015 Steamtown Music Awards for Country Artist of the Year. Stream her music on Spotify, Deezer, YouTube, Google Play and download on Itunes, Apple Music, and Amazon Music.
“To be nominated and recognized in so many prestigious categories by industry professionals is truly such a huge honor for me. It is always so humbling to see that what my team and are I doing is being recognized in the Country Music world. The Josie Music Awards are one of my favorite times of the year and I am looking forward to seeing so many of my fellow artists,” says Dani-elle! “The Steamtown Music Awards are nominated by the fans, so to have 3 nods and know that that is solely from my fans support means more to me than they will ever know. It is because of the fans that I get to chase this dream and do what I love. We are on this journey together every step of the way.”
In addition to the award nominations, Miranda Lambert’s “Mutt-Nation” Foundation has created a replica of her dog, Shyla. Pet rescue is very important to Dani-elle and after seeing Miranda’s foundation at work during CMA Music Fest, she wanted to take part in some small way with the program. Their story began in June of 2010 while in Nashville, TN. The family dog, a Maltese named Bially, was back home in PA and upon return home, became very sick and passed suddenly from cancer. Adding to the emotional sadness was learning of her Grandfathers diagnosis of stage IV lung cancer. The adoption of two pound, Shyla-B (the B stands for Bially,) not only filled the void of loss and sadness but rescued the family as much as they rescued her. You can purchase a replica of Shyla here and a donation will be made to “Mutt-Nation.”
“Miranda Lambert’s Mutt-Nation Foundation is an amazing group. I am honored to share the story of how Shyla rescued both my parents and me,” shares Dani-elle. “Knowing a part of the proceeds from the purchase of the replica of Shyla go back to the foundation, as do all the MuttNation stuffed animals, is an added bonus towards more contributions.”
Dani-elle continues to promote her new single “Get Back Up” released in April 2018, a song that inspired her “Positive Youth Tour,” a series of live shows performed at schools in Pennsylvania’s Lackawanna and Susquehanna counties, where the concerts include segments during which Dani-elle speaks to students about following their dreams, bullying, and self-worth.
