Donna Dean


I wanna hang out with this band.  Check it out.  They look like they are having fun.  I love music when it’s fun.  

No Depression rocks.  Still.  They interviewed our boy Ronnie Fauss, then Shady from the New Zealand radio station, Radioactive-FM,  interviewed him.  Now they have introduced Donna Dean to the masses and about time, I’d say, because it’s clear that they have been practicing for a while….uh, duh…..where has she been?  where have I been?  Thanks for the alert on this, Shady, because I am richer for having heard it this morning.  

If you have ever listened to any guitar playin’ women and dug it, you will have to give Donna a listen and let me know what you think.  I’m liking her upbeat attitude about a subject we can all relate to from the first line, which is “I been walking on eggshells around you lately….”  Yes, yes, I can relate!  The song is What Am I Gonna Do?

Comparisons have been made . . . Mary Chapin-Carpenter, Gillian Welch, Lucinda Williams . . .I think I’ll listen to Donna Dean some more and get back to you on this.
