Danielle Thompson has been singing since the age of three and playing piano since she was in in the 5th grade. The 19-year-old, who began playing with the Danny Thompson Band when she was 16, describes the experience as “amazing.” “I know he’s my dad, but it’s amazing to have somebody like that mentor you. He can pick up any instrument and just play it. Sometimes it makes you a little jealous because you wish you could do things so effortlessly. When it comes to constructive criticism to help you improve what you do, he’s a great band leader and a great dad,” she says. Danielle says she loves being on stage and touring. She says playing with a family oriented band is great. Along with her musical career, Danielle is currently studying criminology and psychology and plans to pursue a master's degree in speech pathology.
