- Daria reinvents ten Beatles classics - including big hits such as "Come Together" and "Can't Buy Me Love," and the less commonly performed "Fixing a Hole" and "Julia" - and closes out the set with her own composition, "She's Going Home."
Whether scatting across the crisp accents of a driving cluster of jazz horns, or blending into the intimacy of a jazz trio, Daria finds the beating musical heart of whatever she is singing. And so it goes with Strawberry Fields Forever, her wide-ranging, musically rich tribute to the Lennon and McCartney songs of the Beatles. Along with fellow arranger and bassist Sam Bevan, Daria approaches the challenge of presenting some of the 20th Century's most popular works by allowing her rich vocal timbre and deep musical sense the opportunity to discover new interpretive possibilities in the music. With over a dozen top-flight Bay-area musicians contributing, Daria reinvents ten Beatles classics - including big hits such as "Come Together" and "Can't Buy Me Love," and the less commonly performed "Fixing a Hole" and "Julia" - and closes out the set with her own composition, "She's Going Home."
Acclaimed vocalist, Daria, an innovative singer and songwriter with a beautiful voice, unerring pitch and wide vocal range, blends Jazz, Brazilian music, Afro Cuban and world rhythms to create her own powerful and expressive style. 

Growing up in San Francisco, Daria was part of a uniquely creative family. Her mother spoke five languages, taught creative writing and is a published author. Her father was a first violinist with the San Francisco Symphony. Daria began to sing at age six. In her teens she fell in love with Jazz. She went on to study with Bobby McFerrin, Mark Murphy and Brazilian musician, Celia Malheiros. She is included in the book The Jazz Singers, The Top 521 Jazz Singers of All Time, by Jazz critic, Scott Yanow. 

Daria has received international airplay and performed at clubs and festivals in the SF Bay Area and beyond, including L.A., NYC, Japan, Montreux, Brussels and Berlin.
