label “Bri-Tone Records”.
In 2017 Wilde signed to VizzTone Label Group in the USA. Her new
album “Live at Brighton Road” will be released in June 2017. Dani
“I’ve always wanted to be a VizzTone Artist. I was brought up on
Muddy Waters and I’m a huge Susan Tedeschi and Sean Costello fan. I
saw Susan play when I was a teenager and it’s what made me want to
be a blues artist. So when Richard Rosenblatt sold ToneCool and set
up VizzTone with Steady Rollin’ Bob Margolin, I longed to have the
opportunity to work with them both. I’ve had a great career with Ruf
Records but I’m so excited to be moving forward with VizzTone! I
feel my new record “Live at Brighton Road” is by far my best work.
It’s true to the blues, and inspired by the American music that I
love; but it’s also true to me and tells my story as a British Blues
“Live at Brighton Road” was recorded live at Brighton Road Studios
in England. Produced by Wilde, It’s a collection of heartfelt
Acoustic and Electric live performances that will tug on your
heartstrings and get your feet stomping. The CD release features a
bonus DVD of the ‘live in the studio performance’. The album will
also be available on 180g-heavyweight vinyl.
A passionate advocate for the charity ‘Moving Mountains’ Dani Wilde
is also recognised for her humanitarian work fighting to prevent
