About Donna

Donna Herula is a Chicago-born blues singer, songwriter, and slide guitarist that has a passion for playing traditional Delta and Country Blues, early Chicago Blues, folk, Americana, and roots music.  Using electrified resonator guitars, her sound combines her love for the music of the Deep South and Chicago with her love of blues guitar improvisation.  Her songwriting tips the hat to the tradition while creating fresh, contemporary perspectives on blues and roots music.

New Release Coming May 21st!

Bang at the Door

Donna will be releasing a new CD, Bang at the Door, including 11 original songs and 3 covers on May 21st!

The music highlights a musical palette that flows from acoustic blues through gospel, jazz to the electric Chicago blues style, with nods to New Orleans and country music influences. It is the first of her three releases to feature her heartfelt songwriting, focusing on the joys, tribulations, and problems that are part of the human experience.
