EPISODE 6: Danielle Sines

Danielle Sines

Danielle Sines is a singer-songwriter for Chicago’s Impulsive Hearts. She sings, shouts, plays guitar and piano, and records noises on tape recorders. She likes melodies that remind her of summertime. We sat down with Danielle and discussed a number of things over the episode. The triumphant return of her band to the stage with their first live show since the pandemic started. She reflected on how things in our scene has changed with balancing everyone’s safety needs with the experience of live music; how a band changes over the course of the pandemic and working with youth in a mentorship role and giving back to the music community.

When she’s not dreaming up summery tunes, she’s working as a marriage & family therapist, or volunteering for CHIRP Radio or Girls Rock! Chicago.

You can tune in to CHIRP on Tuesdays from 12-3p central time for Danielle’s show.

Impulsive Hearts will be at Reggie’s August 28.
