About the artist
Girl in the woods of Connecticut turned early-adopter and went global overnight. An instant world-wide hit and inspiration to coders and engineers, Daria became the voice that launched a thousand lines of code and the model for major tech innovations and Google engineering evolutions including the new “Hangouts On Air” broadcasts by Google. Because a Hangout is limited to 10 people at a time, Daria and her "G+niuses" (what she calls new fans) created an etiquette of rotating the audience from around the world in and out of those "front row seats." Her 2nd and 3rd Hangout Concerts were also streamed live to unlimited viewers online. Hangout Concert 2 was watched by 9,000 people in 100 countries. Hangout Concert 3 used tech so new that the numbers are still being crunched. By integrating with YouTube Live, embeddable live players flooded Google+, Facebook, blogs and sites across the internet. It is estimated that the viewership was well over 200,000 people. All of this happened in two months.
Daria is breaking new ground, pushing the boundaries in music, tech and social media, and sheʼs doing it in an grass-roots and heart-driven way. Itʼs her genuine enthusiasm, passion and voice that seems to inspire hope and an unprecedented level of engagement. Sheʼs now been featured in Billboard Magazine, Social Media Panels (BMI, SXSW, CrushIQ), Official Google Events, just performed live and simultaneously in Hangouts at The CMJ Music Festival and is looking forward to giving her first TEDtalk performance in November.
# Her Hangout Concerts (6.5hrs, 7.5hrs and 8hrs long each) created a world-wide fan base that is growing exponentially and Daria took the connection with them a step further into collaboration. New fans from China, Australia, Ghana, Norway, UK, Indonesia, India, Argentina, Italy, France, Portugal and all over the US helped Daria pick her first single “You Move Me” and recorded the title in their own languages via Soundcloud to create a multilingual intro for the song. Her “G+niuses” also chose the cover, an Instagram self-portrait, and her debut EP hit #22 on Amazon MP3 the night it was released.
# "Global Give-Back" is also at the heart of Dariaʼs budding career. By partnering with The ONE Campaign she helped attract thousands of people to sign a UN Petition to aid Somalia and The Horn of Africa, it was ONE's biggest night of that campaign and helped turn a concert into real tangible global change.
Through song, face to face encounters, her own brand of “Fierce Joy” and a "Laughing In The Face Of The Lion" attitude, Daria is pioneering a new age of interactive, international, interpersonal entertainment and connection.
