The song begins with a pulsing bass accompanied by a strumming progression and swelling synths.

With Danae’s emotive singing, listeners will feel instantly connected.

As the instrumentals take a brief pause, Danae’s vocals enter with a fiery passion for the start of the hook singing, “Cause there’s gold in the dirt, gold in the dirt / Dig a little deeper, there’s gold in the dirt.” The hook allows Danae’s pristine vocals to shine through as she sings high soaring melodies that make for a truly memorable hook. “Gold In The Dirt” is a song about pushing through challenges, resistance and fear and listeners will be instantly taken by both the message and the performance.
