Indie Band Lady Danville Announce Shows at CMJ, Tour with Ben Folds

Lady Danville is an acoustic folk pop trio from Los Angeles, California. Making the trek cross country, the band is thrilled to play 3 shows at the 2010 CMJ Music Marathon leading up to their highly anticipated tour with Ben Folds.

With Michael Garner on keys, Matthew Frankel on the cajon, and Dan Chang on the guitar Lady Danville is most recognized for their well-crafted harmonies, thoughtful lyrics and refreshing dose of energy, wit and charm, evoking the sound of Simon and Garfunkel meets Death Cab for Cutie.

Lady Danville formed in 2007 after meeting as members of UCLA’s Awaken A Cappella. Since then, Lady Danville has gone on to consistently sell out popular Los Angeles venues including the Troubadour, Viper Room, Hotel Café, and the El Rey. They have also shared the stage with Sara Bareilles, Jack’s Mannequin, and Adele.

In 2009, the indie band ventured out of Los Angeles and began to attract more attention as they brought their music to the Pacific Northwest. In March of 2010 LADY DANVILLE embarked on their first West Coast Tour and ended their run in Austin, TX making their debut appearance at the annual SXSW 2010 Music Festival. In April of 2010, they toured the East Coast where they played with Jack’s Mannequin kicking off their first ever East Coast tour.

Other accolades include the prominent feature of their song “Cast Away” on a recent episode of MTV’s The Real World: Washington DC as well as “Love to Love” on E!’s Keeping up with the Kardashians. Furthermore, their music has been consistently featured on Dorm Life, Hulu’s most watched web show, as well as on the acclaimed independent documentary Craigslist Joe. They have also earned tremendous praise from media outlets as diverse as LA Weekly,, and
