Nashville-based, queer indie pop/rock artist is on a mission: to explore love, truth and vulnerability through her music - and also, have some fun. She's returned for the summer with the title track off her upcoming album, “Alter Ego”! Filled with crunchy guitars, 90’s-esque live drums + snippets of synthy ear candy, it boldly challenges imposter syndrome and channels self-confidence. For fans of beabadoobee, Zolita + MUNA, “Alter Ego” is your surefire song of the summer.

daena’s next singles are leading up to her debut full-length record. She is currently on the lineup for this year's OUTLOUD Music Festival in Nashville, alongside Icona Pop, The Aces, Marielle Kraft & more.

daena’s songs have been placed on Spotify’s “Fresh Finds” and “Night Pop” editorial playlists, and featured on iHeart Radio, Nashville’s Lightning 100 and more. Her single "Close Isn't Enough" has organically amassed over a million streams on Spotify, and she's racked up over 26k TikTok followers to boot.

As a queer woman, daena hopes to be a role model for other young people in the community. “It’s important to help normalize all queer relationships and identities,” daena says. “I hope that my music can encourage listeners to be true to who they are - and proud of it - no matter where they are in their journey of self-discovery and love”.
