Summary

 

Dana has been profiled in both Bleep, Pen’s Eye View, Independent Spotllight and received accolades from songoftheyear.com, where her song “Fighter” was a semi-finalist and “Castle” was praised as a runner-up. She is a dedicated songwriter— completing her 2013 “Song in a Box” project where she wrote a song a week for a full year—and boasts more than 100 unique songs in her repertoire. From New York to San Francisco and back, Dana’s worked with musicians Jon Evans and Julie Wolf and studied under songwriter Bonnie Hayes. Her albums—from the 2008 EP “The Difference” to 2012’s “Validity”—explore a full range of genre, instrumentation, tempo, and emotion. Dana is currently publishing music under her record label for Commercial, TV and Film. Today, she’s dedicated to her craft—and to helping others access their creative spirit, too. With her “creative coaching and consulting,” Dana challenges, inspires, and guides songwriters—from beginners down to seasoned professionals—towards lyrical greatness.
