Danie Ocean and Vidal Davis Making Waves in Philadelphia with ‘Nu Soul’ Sound

Danie Ocean, Vidal Davis, Rochelle Kilson-Drayton

Danie Ocean, a singer/ songwriter/ producer from the Philadelphia area, is on the rise. Combining a funky fusion of classic R&B overtones, and catchy pop dynamics, her sound is fresh and unique. As an artist that transcends genres from country to hip-hop, her sound has been labeled as, “Nu Soul;” a term coined by John Fisher, President of her record label, Winding Way Records.

Recently, Danie has teamed up with Grammy-winning producer, Vidal Davis. Ocean has been a longtime fan of Jill Scott and of Davis, (who produced Scott) so when she discovered that her own studio, Working While Playing, was in the same building as Davis’ studio, she took the opportunity to form a collaboration.

Davis is a legend in Philadelphia, from his humble beginnings working on DJ Jazzy Jeff’s production team, to writing or producing (along with his partner, Andre Harris) for industry heavy hitters such as, Usher, Chris Brown, Jill Scott, Jamie Foxx, Kanye West, Justin Beiber, Musiq Soulchild, Robin Thicke, Fantasia, and R&B legend Charlie Wilson.

Davis believes, “It’s the music that matters,” and the pair, in conjunction with Ocean’s band, are gearing up to release a 10 song LP in Spring of 2018 through Winding Way Records.

Ocean has played major independent venues like World Cafe Live DOWNSTAIRS, Chris’ Jazz Cafe and the Tin Angel, and has also played legendary venues like the Apache Cafe in Atlanta Georgia and The Sidewalk Cafe in New York City. In the past year, Danie Ocean has performed in New Orleans, Austin Red Gorilla Festival, Montreal Jazz Festival and several local venues in the Philadelphia area.
