Dani Doucette is unapologetically herself, and her songs are captivating, autobiographical and motivating. Her debut EP brings to her listener’s ways of working through your thoughts, and ways of figuring out the world through song. Dani has finally found a way of catching up to herself, and Run With Me invites the listener to catch up too.
This collection of songs is exactly that, a sonic tribute to thinking out loud, and a way of finding your way through the fog, together. Run with Me is not a concept EP, but rather a curious collection that reflects the way the mind wanders. It’s about gathering your thoughts, getting yourself together being transparent and willing to show the world your journey.
Although recorded, mixed and mastered in 2020/2021, these songs feel like they’re a lifetime in the making. The songs take you on a trip through pop, while taking detours at r&b, electro-pop and house.

Early bird or night owl?
Night Owl all the way. Usually waking up even more at 3 am to write. My mind never stops.
Road or studio?
I love going show to show, it gives you the opportunity to really live in your music. But I think my creative nature is stronger and I do love the discovery of a new song in the studio. So…both?
