In her previous act, Danielle Ponder was a public defender with a burgeoning singing career on the side. Over the past year, the tables have turned with the release of her celebrated debut album Some Of Us Are Brave; she’s now a full-time singer fusing R&B and electronic pop with a classic rock and soul bent, and using her platform to advocate for social change to sold out crowds.
Ponder played to two of those packed houses in the Philly region last week; she played Friday night at Princeton’s McCarter Theatre, and then on Saturday she came to World Cafe Live for a packed show in the Lounge, supported by opener Suzanne Sheer, a Philly singer-songwriter who showcased her stellar 2022 offering The Blue Hour.
Check out photos from the show below; for more, revisit Danielle Ponder’s 2022 Free at Noon concert here. Ponder plays a Black HERstory Live concert at The Lincoln Center in New York City on February 24th, and then plays March 4th at The Espee in San Antonio, Texas before going out on the road with Lucius this spring.
