Danielle Eva SchwobDanielle Eva Schwob is a London-born but New York-based musician whose creative work spans multiple genres. A composer, songwriter, guitarist and singer who grew up performing in bands, improvising and writing songs, she later found her way to concert music: a discovery that broadened and shaped her compositional voice significantly. Now she continues to work in both concert and popular idioms and is interested in projects that challenge her to connect these two disparate worlds.
