Dani Camancho - Closer Than It Seems

UNXIGNED is independently run by a team of freelance writers and music curators helping underrated artists get the attention they deserve and guilt-tripping fans into checking out the irresistible. Help us keep the lights on with your riches, you lucky mortals or, better yet, give it to the most needy.

For those feeling far away from anything, which is most of us this past year, Dani Camacho has a message for you. In her debut single, “Closer Than It Seems”, she wants you to push on.

With her peaceful and clear voice, she embodies the “delicately strong” state she acknowledges we may be in, far from home, distanced from loved ones, or even goals that seem out of reach. Her surprising vocal harmonies lend strength and direction to what would otherwise be a saccharin theme.

Musically, the Filipino-Canadian singer-songwriter on the offering has displayed prowess on a par with today’s top Original Pinoy Music artists like Cara Benin, Reese Lansangan, and Leanne & Naara.

Her power and energy transform the potential melancholy of the acoustic guitar and minor chords into a robust, uplifting sound. As she sings about herself and her struggle, there’s a Disney quality: tender, yet positive message with ear-catching jumps that perfectly fit the melody.

So, even if you have “ten thousand steps to climb” or you feel like you’re saying, “I try and I try and still fall behind,” lean on Dani’s resilience. Know that you’re “closer than it seems.”
