Hailed as the new Janis Joplin even before she played the legendary rock icon in the off-Broadway hit Love, Janis, Dana Fuchs is a raspy-voiced blues-rock singer/songwriter whose versatile career has embraced music, theater, and film ("Across the Universe"). Fuchs and her band do freight-train blues-rock but it's her voice that steals the show.
Powerful, passionate and honest, Dana Fuchs is a throwback to another time: the late '60s and early '70s, when blues-based shouters like Robert Plant were capturing the attention of a generation.
Perhaps Stereophile Magazine said it best: "Imagine a sultry, more emotive Janis Joplin, backed by a higher energy version of the late 60s Rolling Stones… Rock n' Roll doesn't get any better."
"Blond-haired, blues-rockin' singers don't come any more firey and iconic than Dana Fuchs, preaching the gospel of soul and inspiration." - Philadelphia Daily
