Bang at the Door - Nominated for 2021 Blues Blast Music Award

Donna’s Album Bang at the Door was nominated for a 2021 Blues Blast Music Award for Acoustic Blues Album.

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.
