DAIZA aka Danielle Thwaites, is a Los Angeles based producer, songwriter and artist. True to her moniker, (day-zuh) describes her sound as avant-pop; a mesmerizing trance of processed original recordings from our world, the human voice and guitar, flowered with her hazy, synthetic sound design.
On the forefront of digital audio technologies on and off the stage, Daiza has positioned herself as a leading voice and one of too few women in audio. As an experienced performer, live show designer and programmer, her creations always incorporate new advances in music technology while keeping the integrity of the guitar and the human voice, flowered with hazy, synthetic sound design.

Her style showcases an inherent balance between aggression and tenderness. Characterized by her strong, independent attitude combined with the fragile intensity of her emotions, her writing creates a unique and personal perspective that further compliments her sound design.
"Too Good" is her latest release with Zebulon Krol. Currently, Daiza is finishing her debut album for release early next year.
