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

Egnew Endorsed by In Tune Guitar Picks
1st 2008 Los Angeles, CA - Danielle Egnew was chosen
as an endorsee by power pick company In
Tune Guitar Picks, who endorses many well known
artists ranging from JLo and INXS to Hilary Duff and The
Danielle will be allocated her own signature pick. For ease
of use with her many acoustic instrument stylings, Danielle
has chosen the In Tune GrippX-X Delrin Guitar Pick, Orange
.60mm. GrippX picks are made of delrin and brought to a
matte finish which allows for better grip. Delrin also allows
for greater durability than celluloid picks.
"This is a fantastic company to work with, and I feel
very fortunate to have been chosen as an endorsed artist,
in such formidable professional company as the many successful
artists on their roster," commented Egnew.
Egnew signs Unprecedented Recording Deal with
Maurice The Fish Records
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
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
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.”
Egnew Wins All Access Music Award
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
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
wings. Danielle is currently producing the first ever
Beer Bong album The Funnel of Love.
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."
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
Lodge will be available for retail sale
online and at numerous download sites.
