Dana Clark

Music is my favorite language

On the Chicago music scene for ten years, Dana played clubs, coffeehouses, and hotels around the city. She also traveled to perform at more than fifty colleges throughout Illinois and Wisconsin. During those years, she studied piano with Erwin Helfer, legendary for his traditional Chicago blues style, and Skip Green, one of Chicago’s most respected teachers of jazz

She has played in rock bands, country groups, folk duos, jazz groups, as a solo act, and with blues musicians. This has given her the ability to compose in a wide range of styles, allowing her to mold her musical settings to fit the subject matter of her lyrics.

 I love recording, because it's the only way I get to play all my instruments at once!
