Danna’s music is a mix of roots rock, blues, r&b and country landing on the style called Americana.

Having been a longtime fan of Danna Aliano since her days as the dynamic onstage focal point of Bay Area favs Chain of Blue, I’m thrilled that her long awaited solo album, “Sunnyand,” demonstrates that she’s not just an awe-inspiring vocalist but a fully realized artist. Sure there’s the raucous nasty blues that have always been her calling card, but “Not Nice” and “Faith” bring those DA trademarks to all new heights. Most importantly, however, is the fact that Danna also expands her songwriting palate to a wide musical spectrum that has only been hinted at previously. Take a listen to the brilliant and emotional ode about noted kidnap victim and steadfast survivor Amanda Berry on “3650 Days”, while the gorgeous “For the Love of Money” and moody “Let Love In” simmer with a sensual vocal approach that rise to hypnotic power. Throw in the rap-like blues of the irresistible “Sink” and you quickly realize that this is one chick who doesn’t know how to play it safe when it comes to her artistic inclinations. “Sunnyland” is not only the first recording from Danna Aliano in more than fifteen years, but it’s also the best thing she’s ever laid down. Let’s just hope we don’t have to wait fifteen years for the next one!
