DAPHNI
FEBRUARY 2014 WAMI FEATURED ARTIST


Daphni is a dynamic four piece rock band that hails from Wisconsin’s own Titletown, Green Bay. Formed in 2010, this 2013 WAMI nominated Alternative Band of the Year is quickly making a name for themselves. Daphni has shared the stage with many national acts including the 2013 Grammy award winning Best Hard Rock/ Metal band, Halestorm, 2011 Grammy award winning Best Rock Gospel band, Switchfoot, Adelita’s Way, and Saving Abel.

 

Self-described as “female fronted rock from the Frozen Tundra”, Daphni has been labeled a breath of fresh air in Wisconsin’s rock scene. The band plays a mix of catchy original tunes along with covers ranging from classic and modern rock to pop.

 

Powerhouse frontwoman, Miranda Freimuth, was initially a drummer that found her voice eventually. Today she masterfully handles everything from the softest bluesy piano ballads to “balls to the wall” rock choruses, all the while laying down keys. The diverse styles of bassist Mike Casey, guitarist Ben Sechler, and drummer Chris Dinse all contribute to a dynamic musical atmosphere which drives Daphni’s distinctive, unforgettable rock brand.

 

After listening to their sound it’s not surprising to learn that the band draws from an enormous variety of influences. Each band member cites a staggering assortment of artists in multiple genres, but a few favorites are alt/rock 30 Seconds to Mars, blues singer/songwriter Beth Hart, and singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist/producer Butch Walker.

 

Daphni always aims to give their audience a show. For their 2013 Summerfest gig the band took a bus of fans along with them, treating their passengers to original tunes all the way from Green Bay to Milwaukee. Daphni greatly anticipates their 2014 Summerfest gig, as they do to all of their gigs, big and small, throughout Wisconsin and Illinois.

 

Daphni has two EPs; their 2011 self-titled initial release, Daphni, and Black and White, released in 2012.

“Their show was high energy, musically tight, and really pleased the diverse crowd on the street. You do not have to worry about what this band brings to any festival or venue, because they will always deliver.”

- James McMahon
WAMI President
