Danielle Espinoza better known as her stage name “Welfair” has manipulated the word to create her own vision which promotes well being, and a “do you“ mentality.
Welfair was formed by solo Future Soul artist, singer-songwriter, and producer Danielle Espinoza from Montebello, Ca. An enigma who emits an openness to the full range of human expression. In 2013 her debut Ep "Gem. In. I." was released. The word play title is intended to remind everyone that there is a gem in us all. After a 3 year studio break, she returned in 2016 with her 2nd EP titled "Good Mourning". This Ep depicts the growth mourning can bring if willing. Welfairs vocals are sultry and hypnotic, while her stage presence is magnetic. Her R&B/funk styled grooves are topped with heavily stylized and soulful vocals, balancing all of the lyric blows. She’s a highly sought after vocalist for other projects like Bardo Martinez & The Soul Investigators (Chicano Batman lead singer’s first solo release). Welfair lent her voice on the hook of Bardo Martinez’s 2018 single titled “Summer”. The frontwoman got to share the stage with fellow frontman, supplying back vocals at various shows this passed year, and recently performed at Lightning In A Bottle Festival. She just released her titled track “Recreational” off of her much anticipated upcoming record, dropping this Summer.
