There Was a Place, The One Before This
Time Is a Face on the Water
All is Silent in the Halls of the Dead
Danielle O'Hallisey is a guitarist and composer of inspired works for modern and traditional instrumentation who was recently awarded the Vermont Arts Council Creation Grant for the generation of new work for her neoclassical trio, Yellow Sky.
Her influences range from the virtuosic brilliance of jazz/fusion masters Larry Coryell, Al DiMeola, John McLaughlin and Stanley Clarke; to the serene, contemplative musings of Icelandic neoclassical composers Olafur Arnalds and Johann Johannsson . Since 2014, she has studied guitar and harmony with Mr. Coryell. "I was looking for an inspirational teacher, a mentor; not just someone to run me through my paces," says O'Hallisey. "Larry Coryell has performed with, taught and learned from the masters of modern music. He is a composer of large symphonic works and intimate pieces for solo guitar; a performer of searing fusion, traditional jazz and music that frankly defies classification. When a musician of that stature speaks, I hear what he has to say; his confidence in my abilities has been nothing short of transformative."
