Blues on Bliss Avenue!,
This review is from: Bliss Avenue (MP3 Download)
`Bliss Avenue' is the incendiary new CD from New Jersey singer/songwriter/actress Dana Fuchs recorded in New York and now available on Ruf Records. All the songs on Bliss Avenue are written by Dana Fuchs and her long time guitarist Jon Diamond who forge emotionally charged songs that lay bare her soul backed by Jack Daley on Bass, Shawn Pelton on Drums, Glenn Patscha on Hammond Organ, Wurlitzer Piano & Keyboards with Tabitha Fair & Nicki Richards singing Background Vocals.
Largely due to her gravelly voice and sheer stage presence, Dana Fuchs was bound to be compared to the legendary Janis Joplin having played her in an off-Broadway production of 'Love, Janis' and later starring as 'Sadie' in the critically acclaimed 2007 Beatles movie/soundtrack 'Across The Universe'. `Bliss Avenue' sees Dana Fuchs spread her wings over many musical genres including soul, blues, country and rock with great new songs like "Bliss Avenue", "Baby Loves The Life" and "Long Long Game" that will no doubt enhance her appeal and amazing live shows!
Dana Fuchs continues to shine amongst all the emerging stars out there today and `Bliss Avenue' contains enough proof that her future looks very bright indeed!
