Dana Gavanski is a Canadian singer-songwriter and musician. One year after her Mike Lindsay (Tunng, LUMP) produced debut 7” single ‘One By One/Do You?’, she released the debut album titled Yesterday Is Gone which is out now via Full Time Hobby. The ten tracks show her enveloping and delicate voice, an intense writing which is amplified thanks to the non-baroque but complex sounds. She forged her own path and this is the meaningful strength of this album.
She announced the release of a new EP, collection of covers, called Wind Songs which will be out on August 14th via Flemish Eye. “At Last I Am Free“. She explains: “I only discovered this brilliant song within the last year. Written by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers and originally sung by Chic, Robert Wyatt does a superb cover of it that just blows my mind, with his bizarre but amazing vocals and arrangement: that soft and gentle mellotron flute that pushes the song along coupled with his shrill wizardly voice. The way he makes the covers he’s done his own has been a big inspiration on making this EP. He does a super beautiful rendition of “Te Recuerdo Amanda” by Victor Jara that is equally as bizarre, and a totally different world from the original.”
