Dana Gavanski

Music / Folk, Singer-Songwriter / Canada

When Dana Gavanski released "Yesterday is Gone" two years ago, one of the most beautiful and at the same time saddest lockdown soundtracks that didn't really want to be one, the music press went crazy. She was quickly hailed as Canada's next great song writing talent, receiving top ratings by everyone from Exclaim! to BBC Radio 6 Music and quickly becoming the darling of the more offbeat folk spectrum, praised by nerds and critics alike. Her timbre, half-breathed, half-deadpan, nestles like velvet into the carefully arranged guitars, drums and jazzy bass in songs as deep as "One by One". There’s an ever-present, dream-like sweetness to Gavanski when she floats through these warm harmonies, which magically awaken long-forgotten memories and longings. Even from an immortal classic like "I Talk to the Wind" by King Crimson, the Canadian poet and thinker manages to produce a piece with a twist of its own, but one that also does justice to the original. The fact that her second album "When It Comes" was released in April is almost certainly the news of the year for all lovers of sublime folk sounds.
