Where have I been?

My daughter owns the DVD Across the Universe, I haven't seen it it. Not because I don't want to...I just haven't "fit it in" yet.

After the daughter saw it in the movie theatre, she told me that the woman who plays Janis Joplin was really awesome. I had meant to check it out at that time, but forgot. Then...as I was browsing through my local library list of events, I found a concert with a tag line: Rock, Soul, Blues & More with Dana Fuchs!

I was intrigued so I listened to the sound clip that was attached to the site and WOW...I was really blown away.

Does anyone else know much about her? I just haven't heard much by her and I'm wondering why.



What a voice! I can see why she's compared to Janis Joplin, she has a similar sound.

is it Joss Stone?

Hey Presby - no, her name is Dana Fuchs. She has a similar sound to Joss Stone and Beth Hart...both bluesy/raspy singers as well. I like them both too.

McC - Yeah...I really want to. I wiil, I will. I promise!

OD- I downloaded a few songs to give her a good listen and I like her live songs much better than her studio songs.

Wyldman! Hey dude...good to see you around!

Cool! I'd not heard of her. Or the movie, either, but then we get those things months after they come out in the States. I'll have to look out for it.
