Singer-songwriter Danielle Miraglia grew up in Revere, Massachusetts, and describes herself as "Boston-born and -raised."
Miraglia went to Emerson College with the intention of becoming a writer, but "it seemed like too much of a task to actually write a novel," she joked. Miraglia decided to take a chance on music.
"When I first graduated and I first started writing songs, my songs were way too wordy, because I was thinking like a creative-writing major," she said. "You can be really descriptive without describing every little detail."
She built up confidence doing open mic events at cafes before launching into full-fledged gigs.
"The first one I ever did was the Kendall Café in Cambridge, Mass. [...] I was a little bit scared, but people are kind when you go to open mics."
A few years later, Miraglia has shared a stage with the likes of Johnny Winter and Joan Osborne. She's released two albums — Nothing Romantic and Box of Troubles — and has a third on the way.
Danielle Miraglia stopped by WGBH's Studio Three to play a few tunes from her upcoming release, Glory Junkies.
