Title: Dysfunctional Dysmemberment
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

Known for her transparency and unapologetic honesty, Dani has become a force to be reckoned with as a spoken word artist, writer, and performance poet in her two short years on the scene. Becoming a signed author and publishing her book, The Rantings of Dani, in June 2010 is just one of the many feats this phenomenal artist has accomplished. As a member of the nationally ranked Charlotte Respect Da Mic 2009 Slam Team, SlamCharlotte December 2009 Slam Champion, and Respect Da Mic WOW (Women of the World) Qualifier Slam Champion, Dani has made her mark in the competitive world of slam poetry. She has extended her reach from published word and slam champion to featuring as an opening act for such artists as Grammy-nominated Calvin Richardson, Doug E. Fresh, and Natalie Stewart of Floetry. In addition, she has become a regular featured poet on Charlotte's Number One Station for Blazing Hip Hop & R&B, Power98FM on No Limit Larry & The Morning Madhouse's Spoken Word segment with two time Emmy winner, Bluz. While her poetic accomplishments are to be appreciated, Dani is most proud of her personal achievements. As a witness to domestic abuse and survivor of sexual abuse as a child, a disable veteran, and single mother successfully raising two daughters, Dani realizes that words help even if they don't completely heal. The right words can help young women rethink hasty decisions, be aware of bad situations, and become inspired to know all is not lost. And by sharing her words in both spoken and written word, she hopes to not only have an outlet for herself, but to bring something real that all of her audience can relate to and understand. On this album, Dysfunctional Dysmemberment: The Process of Becoming Whole, Dani takes you through the journey of life's hurts and challenges and shows you that you can and will eventually reach the other side. She demonstrates that while you may never be grateful for the pain life gives you, there comes a time when you rise from the ashes to achieve your dreams and can appreciate them for making you the person you are today. She apologizes to no one for her honesty and issues only one disclaimer, a warning if you will, when it comes to the listening of her work: 'Listen, but don't take offense. Absorb, but don't judge. These are my words... not yours.'
