This event is all ages

Danielle Espinoza is Welfair's creator and core member of 5 years. After pursuing dance for 12 years, Danie called it quits after an epiphany she encountered. During her first year, she started to experiment with music by singing co- lead for a jazz/alternative/soul band "The Thickest Thieves". After allowing her vulnerability to music, she was hooked. Danie began to realize what music did for her, and what her voice gave to people. She received such a positive response and found her favorite outlet. Danie made the decision to quit school after her 2nd year in college. She began sculpting her own vision and from that, Welfair came to fruition.

Welfair's first "Gem.In.I" EP dropped in January of 2012. A play on words with the intention to remind everyone that there is a gem in us all. Positive feedback was received from the EP. Giving Welfair the opportunity to travel and perform out of state, encouraged Danie to move forward with the project. Welfair has now grown into an aspiration. Welfair experienced a four year interval from writing and recording, and discovered anticipation from loyal fans. Welfair's 2nd EP "Good Mourning" has been released. The EP release is in dedication and loving memory of her brother Michael Henry Cisneros, who she lost to suicide in September of 2015. "Good Mourning" is also a play on words, and a pour from her heart and soul.

Depicting the painfully positive outcome and growth, mourning a loss can bring if you allow it. Production is provided by close friend, and multi-instrumentalist Mac Hill. All of Welfair's new material is about Michael, and Welfair's experience through the entire mourning process. As disheartening of a topic as this is, you

can still expect the neo-soul;funk styled grooves to soften all of her lyric blows.

The EP dropped on Michael Henry's birthday, November 25, 2016.

Keep up with this artist-to-watch!
"The Artist that's changing the indie pop game, the five-track compilation is vaguely reminiscent of a trippy, hallucinogen-fueled daydream and tinged with '70s influences and swaying summer campfire sessions" - NYLON

"On new single “Better All the Time,” the New York native provides an electric three-minute trip into a spaced out fantasy, with a trippy soundscape full of glam rock and psych-pop influences" - SPIN

"Marrying the spaciness of Electric Light Orchestra's 'Strange Magic' and the sunniness of The Beatles' 'Getting Better,' "Better All The Time" by Zuli is a dazzling piece of pop" - The Deli

"It’s rare that a video in 2015 bothers to craft a narrative, and it’s even rarer for one to be so unfailingly entertaining. Along with the song and its weirdo dance jangles, “Better All The Time” is violently joyful" - Flavorwire
