Dana Fuchs: A Voice like Honey and Whiskey

If you’ve ever longed to hear gritty, raw, and powerful music along the lines of Janis Joplin or Billie Holiday, but couldn’t find the right mix of soul and rock & roll, look no further. Dana Fuchs is your woman.

With a voice that is like honey and whiskey, Dana manages to straddle the fine line between the past and the future of blues music. I discovered Dana for myself after watching her performance in Across the Universe. Her presence on screen brought something that was sensual and electrifying, with her version of “Helter Skelter” being among the top remakes of any Beatles tune out there.

Live performances are where Dana and her band really shine. Uninhibited and filled with genuine emotion, there is nothing to want for after a show, except perhaps, for more.
