Dana Immanuel & the Stolen Band Short Info

Dana Immanuel is a banjo-toting, whiskey-drinking, poker-playing singer-songwriter currently operating from a north London hideout from which emerges a sound more usually associated with the bayou, triple filtered through bourbon, washboard, electric guitar and a touch of alt-country eccentricity. With the all-girl Stolen Band, Dana has been getting feet stomping across the UK folk, blues, Americana and rock scenes.

Having been Classically trained at Oxford (she studied Latin, Greek and Philosophy, with a self-taught minor in guitar playing and country music appreciation), Dana set out to live the dream; she became a professional busker on the icon that is the London Underground. These formative years produced her debut album Character Assassination, a unique blend of folk, blues, old-fashioned jazz and Americana overlaid with lyrics featuring a surfeit of wit and a lack of punches pulled. A long stint working in the gambler's demi monde that is the poker industry contributed not insignificantly to the lyrical content of her second album, Dotted Lines, released in 2015.

Dana’s music reflects her eclectic influences, from Alice Cooper to Hank Williams, routed via the bluegrass turnpike around the township of alt-country. She is at home in the high-stakes casinos of Monte Carlo as in the basement bars of London, Paris and Amsterdam, and her live show with the Stolen Band is not to be missed - watch out for the new album from Dana Immanuel & the Stolen Band, scheduled for release in 2016.

The Stolen Band will be touring extensively in 2016 - please visit our EPK at http://artistecard.com/danaimmanuel for full dates.
