Welfair is Danielle Espinoza's stage name. A literal, almost political, and sarcastic manipulation of the word “Welfare.” By manipulating this word she has created her own reality and way of life, with the ideal vision she has. She has chosen the "F A I R" spelling, to specifically promote fairness and equality. Welfair means honest; straightforward; over all well being. In all areas of life, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically.
Welfair was formed by solo Future;Soul artist, singer-songwriter, and producer Danielle Espinoza from Montebello,Ca. Her debut 3 track Ep "Gem. In. I." was released in 2013. Welfairs vocals are sultry and hypnotic, and her stage presence is magnetic. After a 3 year studio break, she returned in 2016 with her latest release "Good Mourning". This Ep is also a play on words, and depicts the positive outcome and growth, mourning can bring if willing. 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. She is currently recording new material, with a single release in 2018.
