Danielle Egnew Set to Co-Host New Paranormal Radio
Show HAUNTED PLAYGROUND with Talk Radio Icon
Sheena Metal

Haunted Playground with Sheena metal and Danielle Egnew on LA Talk Radio

February 9 2010 - After successfully breaking ground as a first-time director and host with the long-anticipated paranormal documentary hit Montgomery House: The Perfect Haunting, released December of 2009, Danielle Egnew received the green light from top-rated LA Talk Radio to co-host the latest in their line of programming, Haunted Playground, along with award winning talk radio icon Sheena Metal.

"I'm really excited and honored to be working with such an established talent as Sheena on the air," says Egnew of her new endeavor. "I have hosted talk radio before, but this is

the first time I've ever had a regular co-host, and I am really enjoying the team dynamic."

The radio show is also accompanied by a Haunted Playground web series companion, produced by Egnew through her production company Ave Vox Entertainment, which also captained Montgomery House: The Perfect Haunting. The web series chronicles the explorations and investigations of known haunted locations that she and Sheena, as well as guests, will embark upon. The first installment of a two part series on the haunted Hotel Del Coronado outside of San Diego is already up on You Tube.


Haunted Playground is the no-holds-barred turf where Danielle Egnew’s vast Paranormal expertise joins forces yard for yard with the unparalleled signature wit of Sheena Metal. Egnew is no stranger to the paranormal in media, having landed in the “expert seat” on more than one occasion while doing Psychic work with Law Enforcement, as on-camera Psychic talent, hosting and directing her own paranormal documentary feature film, and as creative consultant on several paranormal TV programs as well as being the most-repeat guest as "The Resident Psychic" on The Sheena Metal Experience. Sheena Metal, dubbed by the industry as “The Queen of Observation”, has not only continuously been a Top-Rated Female Talk Radio Host in Los Angeles for over 12 years, now anchoring her own daily drive-time show The Sheena Metal Experience on LA Talk Radio, but grew up fascinated by the paranormal while coping with the challenges of living in a haunted home. This dynamic duo dissects the paranormal in a way that not only educates, but entertains.

Laugh and learn two hours every Tuesday from 3-5pm PST. From today’s top paranormal experts to the most bizarre phenomenon to the world’s most engaging spiritual people, Haunted Playground has room for everyone. http://www.hauntedplayground.com

Danielle Egnew signs Unprecedented Recording Deal with
Maurice The Fish Records

January 5th 2008 Los Angeles, CA -- Multi-award winning pop / rock artist Danielle Egnew, known for successfully fielding various artistic pursuits from solo music projects to fronting and producing popular all-girl band Pope Jane as well as her on-camera acting and scoring work in film and TV, has signed an unprecedented multi-tiered record deal with Maurice the Fish Records. Egnew, who made headlines in the past after declining label deals due to contract restrictions, cites this diverse opportunity with Maurice the Fish Records as a "perfect marriage of business and expression."

With market-changing spikes in digital music distribution through vendors such as iTunes, coupled with a sizable decline in major label artist signings in 2007, Maurice the Fish Records is one of many high-end boutique labels springing up to claim the spoils from the jaws of the crumbling music industry infrastructure. Creating a razor-sharp commercial focus through hot artist branding and aggressive out-of-the-box marketing, Maurice the Fish Records leads the pack amongst boutique labels, and has the added distinction of being exclusively run by women.

“This deal is an absolute dream,” said an enthusiastic Egnew, “taking into account every
aspect of my music career, unlike anything I have ever been offered. With such an
artist-friendly staff and such a visionary team, this singular deal is more like getting four
record deals in one, as the label has considered all the separate projects that I am
involved in.”

Traditional record deals require an artist to commit to a single musical genre, such as rock or country, for the duration of their contract. These traditional marketing models are designed with the simple intent of securing a repeat product-buying audience for an artist. However, this traditional model is not only artistically limiting to artists who thrive across different musical genres, such as Egnew, but it also limits the earning power of the label per artist.

For instance, the music produced by Egnew’s band Pope Jane is considered to be Pop, whose prime demographic is females between the ages of 15-30, while her solo material contained on her new album Red Lodge falls in the Americana category, which tends to appeal to both males and females between the ages of 30-45. Egnew’s band Junkie Cousin is Alternative Rock – appealing to a buying public of males between the ages of 14 and 25 -- but Egnew also composes rich catalogues of ambient music that can be licensed to film and television, a listening demographic of both genders between the ages of 35-65.

Though successful cross-genre artists like Danielle Egnew are a rare find, they are an extreme asset to the sleeker, more market-nimble boutique labels, which are able to quickly assess changes in the music market and immediately provide product to reflect these changes.

“This deal really is revolutionary in how labels contract with artists,” said Egnew. “The
terms are terrific, great for everybody involved. It’s just refreshing that there are still labels out there that really want to partner with their artists.”


Danielle Egnew Wins All Access Music Award

Nov. 3rd 2007,Hollywood, CA - In a star-heavy awards night at The Knitting factory on Hollywood Boulevard, Danielle was honored for the second year in a row by the All Access Awards Committee with the maximum number of award nominations -- three -- for Best Female Rock Vocalist, Best Overall Songwriter, and Best Keyboardist in the Pop, Alternative, and Glam catagories. Danielle was very excited to take home the award for Best Keyboardist. You can watch some of Danielle's award-winning piano work in her music video, Swinging At Nothing.

In addition to walking away with the Best Keyboardist award, one of Danielle's many bands, Sheena Metal's Beer Bong, was honored with one of the most coveted awards of the evening -- the People's Choice Award. Beer Bong opened up the awards ceremony, and is an established theatrical 80's metal satire band in the vein of Tenacious D and Spinal Tap, whose ten year career has included gigs on the Hollywood and Vegas strips. Within Beer Bong, Danielle plays the character of "Ivana Rock, the Angel of Metal", an Eastern European block keyboard-playing backing vocalist sporting a silver Tina Turner wig and three foot long black

feathered wings. Danielle is currently producing the first ever Beer Bong album The Funnel of Love.

 Danielle Egnew - "Swinging At Nothing"

Video Shoot in Montana - July 2007

Danielle's long-awaited solo album Red Lodge, named after her favorite mountain town, is due out early fall of 2007, with the flagship single "Swinging At Nothing" captaining the album launch with a video directed by Paul Mehlhaff. The shoot took place in Danielle's home state of Montana. "Swinging At Nothing is the perfect single to kick off this album," says Egnew, "because its simplicity is exactly what Red Lodge is all about." The video features sentimental locations such as Egnew's childhood home, where she is seen playing her family's 1912 Steinway baby grand. "We had the weirdst living room in Montana," Egnew adds, "because instead of a big screen TV, we had this enormous magical piano, full of songs just begging to be written. The piano is really the star of the video, in my opinion."

The album is an expressive, intimate piece featuring Egnew's trademark vocal work and her playing of a litany of instruments from piano to guitar, mandolin, bass, tibetan bowls, penny whistle, and an array of percussion tools including tribal drums. Red Lodge will be available for retail sale online and at numerous download sites.
