From the EP “Dana”
Earliest influences include her mother’s abundant love and her soaring soprano voice, musical excursions to Chicago’s Old Town neighborhood, and the music of Bob Dylan, the Womenfolk, Joan Baez, Sandy Denny, Eric Andersen and church choir that still remains part of her life. Dana is a south Chicago-born singer-songwriter, lives on the city’s north side, is married to George, and is a mom to two sons, Alex and Sam. Thank you listening and supporting local live music.
