Born and raised in Chicago, emerging country singer-songwriter, Dana Marie, moved to Nashville in January of 2016. In the past year, she has had the honor of opening up for country artists such as Jana Kramer and Dallas Smith. Now, together with her band, she performs on stages on the legendary Broadway strip in downtown Nashville.
Her musical influences include Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves, Bob Marley, Colbie Caillat, Zac Brown Band, among many others. She draws inspiration from all types of music, but country music just "feels like home."
Besides her obvious love for music, Dana loves spending time outdoors. She loves the simple things - summer nights, handwritten lyrics, guys who can two-step, quality time with family + friends, baseball games, live music, vanilla cupcakes, puppies, and hugs that linger just a moment longer than usual.
Dana uses her platform as a musician to empower young women and inspire them to shine. She openly shares her story of struggling with Crohn's Disease and living with an ileostomy in order to show others that we are only limited by our own beliefs. Dana believes that there always is a silver lining, we just have to be willing to find it. She's on a mission to inspire others to follow their hearts; because when you shine, you give others permission to do the same.
