Dani Hoy, aka "TropiGal" is a perfect example of the adage “better late than never“. Her music paints a vulnerable and honest view of life in a beach-oriented spirit of fun and adventure.
This all comes three decades after a year of guitar lessons, seeing her musician father in action, and spot opportunities singing in choirs, choruses, and theater. After years of listening to her favorite songs over and over again until she knew every line, her fans are doing the same with her songs and clamoring for more. The wait is almost over.
Dani Hoy’s widely anticipated 2nd full CD, "Songs of Love and the Ocean" has been released, once again in collaboration with Kevin Johnston. The two teamed up on her first project, “TropiGal”, which facilitated many opportunities in the Tropical Rock genre in the form of live performances and airplay. She has twice been nominated for awards by the Trop Rock Music Association (troprock.org) in 2012 and 2013.
Her belated music career began four years ago, with Dani hitting the open mic circuit and performing in front of audiences with her guitar. Naturally the showboat side of her personality was front and center and shared a sense of fun earnest interaction. She sang many nights away after putting in a full eight on her day job as a graphic artist. This made her transition to larger audiences rather simple.
After recently gaining some freedom from her day job, Dani Hoy's passion for music is on full display as she tackles a full performance schedule around the country. Her crafty songwriting and stage presence shines through at multiple Trop Rock festivals, house concerts, collaborations, and gatherings.
There is no doubt Dani Hoy is on the move. It’s hard to escape hearing her music these days.
If you haven't heard the music of Dani Hoy... an escape is only a listen away!
