24-Year-Old Singer Turns Heartbreak Into a Hit Record – 716 Spotlight: De’Laney Daniels
I’ve been noticing the talent in upstate so we here at Power 93.7fm created a platform to spotlight the next superstar Queen City style. This week the “TALK OF THE TOWN” “716 SPOTLIGHT” comes from Buffalo N.Y. via Amherst. De'Laney Daniels is a 24-year old singer/song writer who went from the "Runway" to the "studio". She came by the studio to chop it up with your boy SteelBoutMoney. We talked about her past as a model, her song writing process, also how she turned a cheating boyfriend into a hit record and more. Check out her interview and her smash hit below to see why she is the talk of the town!!!!
The heartbreak was real for De'Laney, as it turns out the guy she was seeing wasn't what he seemed to be:
We had dealings with each other, and he was kinda living a whole 'nother life, and it kinda...it came to light.
So naturally, she turned the pain from that heartbreak into "Pain":
I called my producer...I told him what happened, I said "I need a hot beat," he said "Okay, what you gonna write about?" I said "I don't know, I'ma just write." I start writing, and in just 20 minutes, it just...it became a song.
Do you normally take what happens in your real life and put it into your music?
I do I had to learn to do that....
