Daena refuses to compete and compare on new single “Disappearing Act”

You’ll be hearing a lot more about Nashville indie artist Daena in the coming months. Her songwriting is off the charts in multiple genres, and her voice is incredible.

Her 2021 single “Close Isn’t Enough” is hands-down the best R&B song not written by Prince – an absolute gem that will soon cross the million-streams mark on Spotify. Daena identifies as queer, and you’ll never hear a more tender, compelling Pride song than “Bright Enough”.

Daena’s new single “Disappearing Act” is both a lyrical and musical masterpiece that will remind you of Maggie Rogers and Kacey Musgraves.

About the new song, Daena says:

“A lot of people assume that ‘Disappearing Act’ is about a romantic relationship, but my co-writers and I actually wrote it about the pressures of comparing yourself to everyone around you, especially on social media (and feeling like you just aren’t good enough). Even when you allow yourself to be vulnerable and to be 100% yourself, some people still aren’t going to like you. And that’s okay! But this song comes from the dark place of not being okay with that and the temptation to just ‘disappear’ when that happens (with the addition of some moody, magic-themed imagery, of course).”

Any artist who compares this favorably to Brandi Carlile, Kacey Musgraves, Prince and Maggie Rogers has a bright future indeed. Listen to “Disappearing Act” below or find it on streaming services.
