Love and Innocence… Two words that describe the incredible journey that new pop artist Daphne Fischer embarked on in 2013, from the quiet suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to the beckoning west coast hills of North Hollywood, California. This young 18-year old has a goal and a dream which is embodied in her art, music, and acting ambitions, that defy all the traditional instincts of someone her age. Daphne Fischer has a story and a message; one that will resonate with her peers, as it could very well be their own.
Connecting with Grammy nominated producer/songwriter Billy Smiley (WhiteHeart, Clay Aiken, Johnny Cash, and The Newsboys) in 2014, he brought in songwriter Kris Bergsnes (Tim McGraw, Wynonna Judd). Right from the start, with the 1st single “My Best Friend”, there was immediate chemistry between the three of them. Daphne was talking to Billy and Kris about going to the movies by herself. She stated, “people think that’s weird, but I’m my own best friend. I know everything I like, and we have everything in common”, thus sparking the idea for the song.
It’s the intangibles that elevate Fischer into the arena of our pop culture, allowing the 18-year old singer-songwriter to engage in the unknown atmosphere of a new music generation, one that is different than we have ever known, as music has taken different routes to the hearts and ears of this society through new visual and audio means.
In a world where everyone’s trying to duplicate the latest trend, Daphne only aims to be 100% herself. Wearing her heart on her sleeve, she proves time and time again that belief in oneself and determination is the key to acquiring your dreams.
Her ‘glass overflowing’ type of personality, is honest and extremely empathetic, a loyal friend, believing in the power of positive thinking, and creating your own destiny.
For Daphne, being herself means drifting towards the soft lights of the distant unknown, like her lyrics state in the song “Always Home”
They say that life is just a journey.
I’m gonna find where I belong.
I’m pickin up all my young girl memories.
Head into the great unknown.
I’m always home.
As she prepares to release her debut album, Gypsy Child, she finds herself excited about sharing her thoughts and music with the world. In Daphne’s words, her 1st single, “My Best Friend” is an anthem heralding self-confidence. She will continue to march to the beat of her own drum, write from her heart and no one else’s, and eventually win their hearts after seeing the essence of ‘all things Daphne’.
