Dani-elle Kleha is an aspiring performer and recording artist from Jermyn, Pennsylvania with a sound well beyond her years. Her voice is a combination emulating a throwback to 90’s country mixed with a modern flair. The ability to captivate the audience from the moment she steps on stage to the moment the crowd files out the doors, Dani-elle always leaves her fans with a lasting impression. She has shared the bill with artists Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley and more.
Along with her busy schedule, Dani-elle makes time to give back to the community and nationally with her position of being the National Spokesperson for “Veteran’s Promise” as well as headlining the “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. This is only the beginning and there is no stopping her now. Her fresh new look and unique sound has her taking the Country Music world by storm one song at a time.
We had the chance to sit down with Dani-elle for a Rapid Fire Round interview to catch up on all her favorites and a look behind the scenes with this up and coming star!

When and where do you do your best writing?
I honestly write whenever possible and as far as where, as long as I have a guitar or piano and my notebook, it could be anywhere!
What is the best advice you’ve ever been given about working in the music industry?
I had the opportunity to sit down with Taylor Swift a few years ago and she said some pretty great words. Work hard, have a passion for what you do, dream big and keep your feet flat on the ground.
What’s your most or least favorite thing about being on the road?
I absolutely love being on the road!! I love the adventure with all of my favorite people, seeing new places, meeting new people and just learning new things each time. Everyday on the road is always a new adventure!
If you had to choose between a private plane or your own yacht, which would you choose?
That’s an easy one. Private plane!

My parents for sure. They have believed in me and been on this journey with me every step of the way and are my #1 fans. They always have the best advice and know just how to make everything better.
What’s the one song (from any artist) you wish you had written or sung first?
I am forever wishing I wrote the song “11:11” by Tyler Rich. 11 is my lucky number and I do 11:11 on my socials all of the time reminding fans to make a wish ever since my Papa Danny passed away on 11-11-11. Every time that one comes on, I wish I wrote it! Maybe Tyler and I can do a duet on it one day!
