Dani Kerr took the stage initially as a solo artist and invited fellow band member of The Skeleton Crew, Grady Clark, to join her on stage halfway through her set.
They performed in front a live studio audience and on the radio during North Carolina's WAME 92.9 Real County Radio Station's Drive at Five show hosted by the WAME Chillbillies and special guest Rockie Lynne.
Dani and Grady performed some covers and some originals as well as answered interview questions. Besides the fantastic music played by two stellar talented musicians, the one thing that stood with me the most is Dani's comment about how she has not stopped playing or writing music since the mandated shutdown. Just because the gigs slowed down or stopped does not mean she has to. Music is a part of who she is and what she lives for. During these times of uncertainty, it is important to not loose focus on who we are and what we are passionate about. It was nice to reminded of that once again.
Dani Kerr and The Skeleton Crew are working on new material. When they are not playing together as a full band, Dani Kerr plays in smaller more intimate settings just so she can bring the joy of music to everyone who wants to listen. She has come a long way in the last three years, and I am looking forward to seeing just how far she will go.
As a photographer, who has photographed her for the last two years, and as a fan of her music, I have enjoyed watching her grow in her profession as a true musician.
