'At the start of 2012, Danica Hunter was invited to the BBC Introducing Masterclass by BBC Introducing in Berkshire. There she delivered an impromptu acapella streamed across the internet and in front of industry professionals including Maverick Sabre and Rob Da Bank. Captivating her audience wasn't a problem.

The 18 year old singer-songwriter from Henley on Thames has already shared bills with Jools Holland, Sting and Geno Washington. It seems she's rarely sitting still often touring London, Oxfordshire and Berkshire showcasing a strong vocal that's rich in both soul and rock and hardly needs a backing track.' BBC 3

Of course, I was loudly cheering on our two local acts: Danica Hunter from Henley-on-Thames, the 18-year-old singer with a voice that makes you stop in your tracks.

And indeed hundreds of festival-goers did stop in their tracks to watch her arresting performance, which was filled with soul, drama, mellow beats and above all heart-wrenching feeling. Linda Serck, BBC Introducing, Berkshire

'The past eighteen months have been very successful for British female singer-songwriters and the timing couldn't be better for Danica Hunter to break. Over on the BBC Introducing Stage she unveils her captivating and soulful voice to the amassed audience. Accompanied by a toned down band and Cajon her songs are mostly about the trails and tribulations about life as an eighteen year old but there is a pleasant depth to her voice which stops the song writing from feeling shallow. The combination of blues, soul and the colloquial puts her somewhere between Duffy and Kate Nash but to compare her to either is to do a disservice to Hunter's voice. She and her band make easy listening, highly enjoyable, experimental pop with a bluesy edge. Expect big things from this young lady in the future.' Music Leeds Scene

'You were amazing!' Maverick Sabre

I first met Danica Hunter & Angus Chandler as they were on their way up through Open Mic UK. Their unique and highly contemporary style is always great to work with and makes for a very exciting and creative time in the studio. They possess a valuable combination of raw talent, musical understanding and a daring desire to explore different ways that their songs can be presented. We worked together on three tracks which became their debut EP and the next thing I know their shooting a video and performing at the O2!

I see a very bright future for this duo and always look forward to working with them. Olli Daffarn, Producer, HL Studios
