DANA – strength in vulnerability.
‚My lyrics are so personal, sometimes showing them to the world scares me. But at the same time what always helps me going through a rough time is listening to other artist’s songs that speak to me.
I openly sing about my most painful experiences because I want you to feel understood, I want you to know you’re not alone. I’d love to think of my songs as your companions. Like a warm hug or a friend’s shoulder to rest your head on.‘
Genre: Indie-Pop / Singer-Songwriter / Soul
Swiss singer/songwriter DANA creates music that helps people understand what it means to be vulnerable. Songs from her two previous EPs (2016 & 2019) were played extensively on the radio. This paved the way for over 200 shows of European touring with her tight-knit band. In 2020, DANA began recording her first full-length album; she has been collaborating weekly with songwriters from New York to Berlin. Deeply inspired by the process, DANA insists, “Creatives can energize and support each other rather than compete.” The first singles sparked interest around the world and were picked up by Rolling Stone India, drawing in a wide global audience, and creating a buzz for the album release in September 2022.
DANA’s songwriting is raw and honest; her live shows invite us to a shared intimacy. Although her music speaks openly about abuse, mobbing, and mental health, it always projects positivity and hope. DANA transforms these negative experiences into a message of power and change.
