Beauty Indestructible is vocalist Ashley Daneman’s triumphant recording debut and much more. Daneman’s story is one of overcoming PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder), divorce and the financial challenges many artists face to produce a work that is distinctly contemporary, personal and exceptional. The singer’s exquisite voice is engaging, even when she’s providing backing harmonies to her own lead vocals. Daneman also provides the compositions and arrangements for this recording with songs that seemed to evolve from her own healing. The production is aided by an outstanding assemblage of musicians, including Sam Weber on acoustic bass, Michael W. Davis on drums and percussion, David Izard on piano and Fender Rhodes, Benje Daneman on trumpet, Matt Davis on guitar and Amali Premawardhana on cello. Ashley Daneman is an artist, whose talent is as impressive as the strength and courage it took to bring her gift to the world.
