Dani Felt is an entrepreneur and entertainment maven. Born in Philadelphia, Felt’s passion for music began at a young age, but her penchant for performing soon gave way to her passion to help artists and creators navigate and thrive in the entertainment industry. Felt’s understanding of both artistry and industry, along with her experience in the music industry and broader entertainment sphere, make her uniquely qualified to help artists and creators turn their dreams into reality.
Felt’s passion for music is deeply rooted in her family. After the passing of her cousin Linda Creed, the songwriter and producer behind R&B hits for Whitney Houston “The Greatest Love Of All” as well as for the Stylistics and the Spinners, Felt was determined to leverage their shared love of music to both honor her cousin and make a positive impact. She founded her first business and charitable venture called Under The Spotlight, a music compilation album.The album featured some of Dani`s friends from college. She raised over $1000 for the Linda Creed Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation.
Felt attended the New England School of Communications where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Marketing Communications. After moving to New York, she soon firmly established herself in the NYC music scene, working with artists and helping set up music showcases and networking events. Fully immersed in New York’s music community, Felt then transitioned to an A&R role, scouting songwriting and artistic talent for several music management and publishing firms including Big Management, Morris Music Group, and BCMG. She frequently set up workshops for artists and songwriters such as at the Guitar Center, and also did some consulting for various celebrity voice over coaches, including Jean Marc Berne (Disney). Felt later founded the artist development company CreativeSpotlights, which soon led her to author a music industry guide for emerging artists titled In The Spotlight: Over 100 Voices In Music. Creative Spotlights has since covered many major media events and press-related affairs, including the SESAC Pop Awards.
Felt founded Dani Felt Consultants to fuse her love of music, industry experience, and marketing background to help build the careers of artists, creators, and brands by helping them forge long-lasting relationships. DFC’s work has already resulted in incredibly profitable relationships, red carpet showcases, and career defining opportunities, with a great deal more on the horizon.
