Welfair is Danielle Espinoza's stage name.
By manipulating the word “Welfare” she has created her own vision, promoting 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 3 track 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 release titled "Good Mourning". Also a play on words, the Ep depicts the growth mourning can bring if willing. Welfairs vocals are sultry and hypnotic, while her stage presence is magnetic. She’s a highly sought after vocalist for other projects like Bardo Martinez & The Soul Investigators (Chicano Batman lead singer’s first solo release). Her R&B/funk styled grooves are topped with heavily stylized and soulful vocals, balancing all of the lyric blows. Welfair just released her first single of 2019 titled “Dots” off of her much anticipated upcoming record “Recreational”, dropping this Summer.
