The Story of Minos the Saint
Every nine years, King Minos had a dozen plus young spirits cast into his famed labyrinth to feed the Minotaur, a metaphor of man vs wild manifest into a horrific monster. Of course, we only know this story because of the heroics that led the youngsters back out, newly wizened with the Knowledge of the Maze. In that way, Minos gave them the greatest of gifts.
One does not really know how the members of Baton Rouge's Minos the Saint survived the beast, but one quick listen reveals their mastery of the labyrinth. A chamber-folk group, if you must, Minos the Saint is a windswept charm assault, a romantic tornado of violin and accordion, French horn and trombone, drums and guitar, the heart of the beast cast into the heavens as a sonic constellation.
Whether you call it “Fate”, “Destiny”, “A Gift” or “A Calling”, the fact is that some people are just born to sing and create music. At only 14, Danielle Salabarria, aka DENI, began writing and performing around the metro Atlanta area in 2009 as half of the acoustic duo ‘Luna & Sol’. And while the sisters continue to play and record together occasionally, DENI's solo career as a singer/songwriter began to take off in late 2013. She is a multi instrumentalist who brings amazing stage presence and intense emotion into her songs, and she continues to build a fan base everywhere she performs.
DENI's unique style, soulful and hard-hitting, could be best described as Pop R&B, and she incorporates both piano and guitar into her repertoire. Musically reminiscent of Adele, Carole King or John Legend, her actual sound is totally individual and distinct. Even at her tender age, she is best known for her hard hitting, crystal clear and wide ranging vocals combined with intensely poetic and personal lyrics. Her music is surprisingly mature and incredibly passionate.
