Danielle Ponder: “Someone Like You” (ACL Fest Pop-Up)

Patricia Lim

It’s the first day of our Fall Membership Drive and the final day of sharing our ACL Fest Pop-Up performances…so we saved the best for last. True to her surname, Danielle Ponder has no holds spending time deep in thought. In fact, that introspection somewhat recently led her to an objectively risky shift – leaving the financial security of life as a lawyer to pursue her dreams of becoming an R&B-soul “songstress”.

From where we’re standing, seems like that decision’s paid off plentifully. Ponder put her potent vocals on display with her mid-September debut full-length Some Of Us Are Brave before blowing the top off the T-Mobile Stage last Sunday at ACL. Danielle kept the momentum barreling with a broken-down six-string-and-singer arrangement of “Someone Like You” for our multi-media team…an intimate gift we now extend to you.

Musicians: Danielle Ponder – vocals; Greg Mize – guitar
