Delaware folk-soul artist Sug Daniels (Danielle Johnson) is making big moves in the music industry.

Sug Daniels worked at Chipotle during the day but could be found rapping and singing at night. Daniels was part of the Dover rap trio FlowCity.

Daniels also co-founded the Wilmington blues and soul group, Hoochi Coochi about ten years ago.

This Delaware born star has been making her rounds and performed at various events last week. Recently, Daniels was found with the Black Opry Revue at Luck Reunion festival.  This particular event was held in outskirts of Austin in music legend Willie Nelson’s backyard.

SXSW (South By South West) is a 10-day event in Austin, TX. The festival features musical acts from all over the country. The week and a half long event also features, comedians, film/tv stars and experts in tech, film, education and culture.

What Delaware is Famous For According to Out-Of-Staters

When asked, “What is Delaware famous for?” these answers were recorded by out-of-staters. Maybe they know more than we do, or they just don’t! Some said the obvious things we all think of when describing our own state, but others noted what they think they know about Delaware. It’s always interesting to see what others think of us, being such a small state. Delaware is known for way more than we know, and it’s our duty to represent our state proudly!

  • No Sales Tax

    It’s the no brainer. We tell people this when describing our state too. So they’re not far off for saying this is what we’re famous for.

  • Historically, the First State

    Not everyone knows this, believe it or not. But yes, we are number 1 and that is something to be proud of.

  • Corporate Law

    Many businesses have headquarters and office space in Delaware to benefit from the lenient taxes and business laws.

  • DuPont

    DuPont is actually well known globally, due to their relations to Europe and the making of gunpowder in their early founding years.

  • Joe Biden

    The President of the United States is from Delaware and frequents coming home, resulting in what we all call “Joe Jams”.

  • That Scene in Wayne's World

    “Hi, we’re in….Delaware.”

  • Famous For Not Being Famous

    One redditor, DrWhoIsOverrated, stated, “There are very few things that stick out about the state, yet it’s the first state that comes to mind whenever someone is asked about a forgettable state.”

  • Tradition to Stock Up On Booze When Passing Through the State

    Our liquor stores have no sales tax and our liquor and beer is fairly cheaper than other states. Mind you, we have very large loiquor stores all over the state.

  • Dogfish Head Beer

    A local brewery that grew into a nationally known brand. Founded in Milton Delaware and Rehoboth Beach Delaware.

  • Chicken Farms

    The history of the overproduction of chicken in the United States actually stems from Delaware in the early founding areas. A mistake in shipping chickens to a Delaware farmer resulted in the farmer receiving thousands of more chickens than she intended.

  • Drivers Not Going Faster Than the Posted Speed Limit on 295

    Apparently, we drive the suggested speed limit on I-295…. isn’t this the right thing to do though?

  • A Bridge and Tolls

    Obviously this was written by someone who lives North of the beaches.

  • The Pronunciation of Newark

    You can tell a Delawarean from a New Jersey local by the way they pronounce Newark. It’s New-ark, not Nork here!

  • Nothing

    People really have the audacity to say Delaware has “nothing.” How do you think we wrote this list then???
