Dana Fuchs Band


Dana Fuchs Band - Lonely For A Lifetime - 2003 - Q&W Music

Tired of being bombarded by talented female singer-songwriters overplaying the acoustic unplugged formula to death? Wish these chicks would plug in and turn the amps up to 11 once in a while? Look no further than the Dana Fuchs Band's first release, Lonely for a Lifetime, a collection of straightforward yet sophisticated arrangements of bluesy, hard-driving rock tunes written by vocalist Fuchs and guitarist Jon Diamond. Imagine a sultry, more emotive Janis Joplin backed by a higher-energy version of the late-'60s Rolling Stones and you'll get the idea. This intelligently engineered recording is punchy yet natural-sounding, without the excessive use of digital processing and compression so common to this genre. It will entice you to see the DFB live. Once you do, you'll be hooked. Rock'n'roll doesn't get any better. © http://stereophile.com/records2die4/203r2d4/index4.html

BIO (Wikipedia)

The youngest of six musical children, Dana was raised in Wildwood, Florida surrounded by music – her older siblings’ band playing classic rock in the garage, Ray Charles and Hank Williams on her parents’ turntable, and a big dose of 70’s and 80’s funk at school. At the age of twelve she joined the First Baptist Gospel Choir and was singing, shouting, and praising the lord every week in a small church on the outskirts of town. At sixteen she was fronting a popular local band at a roadside Holiday Inn.
Arriving in NYC at the age of nineteen she immediately began hitting the local blues jams. It was at one of these jams that she met Jon Diamond, a NYC guitarist who had toured with Joan Osborne and W.C. Handy Award winner Debbie Davies. With a shared musical vision they formed the Dana Fuchs Band. Within a year, the band was a feature act at NYC’s best blues clubs, often sharing the stage and performing with the likes of John Popper, James Cotton, and Taj Mahal. Dana immersed herself in the blues, playing 3 long sets a night, 4 nights a week until 3 am, honing her already formidable vocal power and performance style, and building a large, loyal fan following.
Then Dana decided to tell her own story and write her own music. She and Jon began writing intensively, putting together a solid body of original rock songs. Soon Dana was back on the Lower East Side again, only this time on stage with her own band playing her own songs. The fan response was overwhelming. The band was soon selling out shows at The Mercury Lounge, The Stephen Talkhouse and BB King’s, sharing the bill with national acts including, Little Feat, Marianne Faithfull, and Etta James.
These songs can be heard on The Dana Fuchs Band’s debut CD, Lonely For A Lifetime, which was released to an enthusiastic response from both press and fans. Drawing from influences ranging from ‘60s Stax/Volt R&B, Lucinda Williams and The Rolling Stones, Lonely for A Lifetime hints lyrically, at Tom Waits and Bob Dylan, among others. Says Dana, “I wanted to capture a soulful and rocking vibe…but with an earthiness to it.” Vocally, Dana drew inspiration from legendary singers including Etta James, Otis Redding, Bobby Bland, Aretha Franklin, and Mavis Staples. Currently, Dana is pursuing her music and acting career and continues to live and work based out of New York City.
