.: MUSICAL INFLUENCES

My first recollection of music in my life is a Mickey Mouse record player that I got for Christmas when I was three years old. As my dad so fondly reminds me, it was whatever year Shawn Cassidy had a hit with Da Do Run Run. My musical influences only expanded from there and timing led to my being dubbed "Disco Dana" as I stood in my Patsy Gallant costume with a tambourine and fake microphone singing along to everything I could find...everything...Old Hiram's Goat followed by MacArthur Park...Tiny Bubbles right on up to Miss You by the Rolling Stones...Claudja Barry's Boogie Woogie Dancin' Shoes to Burt and Ernie on Sesame Street Fever and as he continues to remind me to this day, I completely wore out his Little Richard, Buddy Holly, Donna Summer,  and BeeGees albums which he swears up and down "would be worth a fortune now".

 I grew up listening to everything...everything from Edelweiss Trio to Donna Summer, to Patsy Gallant, to Tina Turner, to the Rolling Stones, to the BeeGees, to Steve Miller, to Aerosmith, to Kiss, to Billy Idol. Nothing ever stuck with me more than those powerhouse voices ringing out to On The Radio, Proud Mary, or Piece of My Heart. Strong women with strong voices singing strong songs. As my parents will both agree, I was born a belter and I love to sing. I love breathing life into a song, making it come alive with dynamics, emotion, and power.
