Daily Discovery: Daphne Willis, ”Done With Bein’ Done”


ARTIST: Daphne Willis

SONG: “Done With Bein’ Done”

HOMETOWN: Chicago, Illinois

CURRENT LOCATION: Nashville, Tennessee

AMBITIONS: My ambitions revolve around being successful in the pop world. I aim to be at the top of list in both the writing and touring departments. I also aim to own and operate my own label at some point in the future. Basically I just love pop music (and all of its sub genres) and want to be well respected, worldwide, in that community.

TURN-OFFS: Lazy lyrics, ignorant people, and running late.

TURN-ONS: Good intentions, hooky melodies, syncopation and punctuality.

DREAM GIG: Opening for Stevie Wonder.

FAVORITE LYRIC: “Life flows on within you and without you” – George Harrison

SONG I WISH I WROTE: “Money” by Pink Floyd

5 PEOPLE I’D MOST LIKE TO HAVE DINNER WITH: President Obama, Jimmy Fallon, my mom, my dad and my brother.

MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: Lauryn Hill when I was in the 6th grade; my dad took me and my girls. It was INSANE!!!

I WROTE THIS SONG BECAUSE… There are so many things we all want to overcome within ourselves. This is an anthem for getting it DONE.
