Dynamic Duo takes the stage by storm!
If when you hear the term ‘acoustic duo’ you imagine two people sitting on stools, lightly strumming guitars, singing about how life has treated them poorly, think again! Danika & the Jeb are dynamic, uplifting, and fun, while their music is a soulful combination of artfully written songs and powerful musical phrasing.
When asked about why she has never applied to American Idol, Danika says “I never looked at the music industry like a lottery. I don’t need to buy a ticket. I simply need to be an artist.” Danika’s belief is that a well written song can embody all emotions of the human existence, and she articulates that beautifully with her slightly raspy yet warm voice and truthful lyrics.
Grand-nephew to the great country guitarist Clyde Moody, Jeb Hart can craft a story with six strings. Despite a car accident that left him unable to play for several years, Jeb’s determination to overcome prevailed. After listening to Jeb perform, the two most common responses from fans are “The best guitar player I’ve ever heard” and “It sounds like there’s two of him.”
Danika and Jeb are taking stages of all sizes by storm - having opened for mainstream heavyweights such as Lyle Lovett, Dierks Bentley, Phil Vassar, Tracy Lawrence, and others, to being named 2016 Artists of the Year from Concerts in your Home, their soulful and intoxicating sound lures in new fans daily.
The 7:30pm show at ArtisTree on Friday April 27th will showcase variety of original music that written by Danika and Jeb, as well as putting their own spin on songs that concert goers already know such as "Superstition" by Stevie Wonder and "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by the Beatles.

What the press is saying:
"Danika and Jeb came through Red Clay Theatre a while back. I had watched the videos and listened in space face world, but wasn't prepared for what they gave... LIVE.... Y’all spread the word bout them, and catch 'em when you can. They'll outgrow the little places soon.” -Eddie Owen of Eddie Owens Presents and formerly Eddie’s Attic.
“In Nashville, you have to stand in a long line as a new artist and do something fresh. I’ve seen Danika and Jeb play a few times around town and I’m always struck by her voice and her uniqueness in phrasing and especially tone. She’s a captivating singer in a truly soulful duo.” -Trey Bruce, Emmy Award Winning Songwriter
“Danika Holmes puts her heart and soul into every performance. Her smile draws you in, her music keeps you there.” Madalyn Sklar, GoGirls Music
“I spent 25 years in the newspaper business, most of it as an entertainment reporter and editor. I’ve seen some of the best guitarists and rock, blues and country have to offer. Jeb Hart can hold his own with any of them. His heart and passion are matched only by his technical skills.” - Jim Renke, Entertainment Reporter
