, about the life of Janis Joplin
The youngest of six musical children, Dana Fuchs was raised in a small town in rural Florida surrounded by music. Arriving in NYC alone and broke at the age of 19, Fuchs joined with guitarist Jon Diamond to form the Dana Fuchs Band. Within a year, the band was a feature act at New York's best blues clubs, often sharing the stage with the likes of John Popper, James Cotton, and Taj Mahal. She began writing her own rock songs and became a staple on the rock scene sharing the bill with national acts Little Feat, Marianne Faithfull, and Etta James. Through these performances, she was spotted by the producers of Love, Janis, who cast her after hearing a single performance of Piece of My Heart. Her songs (which she writes as well as performs) have been featured in the film Sherrybaby.
Fuchs' songs can be heard on the upcoming Dana Fuchs Live From NYC CD and DVD, as well as on her debut CD, Lonely For A Lifetime, which was released to an enthusiastic response from both press and fans. Her website is www.danafuchs.com.
