Dana Immanuel & the Stolen Band

Dana Immanuel is a banjo-toting, whiskey-drinking, poker-playing singer-songwriter currently operating from a north London hideout from which emerges a sound more usually associated with the bayou, triple filtered through bourbon, washboard, and a touch of alt-country eccentricity. With the five-piece, all-female Stolen Band, Dana and her all-girl Stolen Band have been getting feet stomping across the UK folk, blues, Americana and rock scenes since 2015.

Having been Classically trained at Oxford (she studied Latin, Greek and Philosophy, with a self-taught minor in guitar playing and country music appreciation), Dana set out to live the dream; she became a professional busker on the icon that is the London Underground. These formative years produced her debut album Character Assassination, a unique blend of folk, blues, old-fashioned jazz and Americana overlaid with lyrics featuring a surfeit of wit and a lack of punches pulled. A long stint working in the gambler's demi monde that is the poker industry contributed not insignificantly to the lyrical content of her second album, Dotted Lines, released in 2015.

Dana’s music reflects her eclectic influences, from Alice Cooper to Hank Williams, routed via the bluegrass turnpike around the township of alt-country. She is at home in the high-stakes casinos of Monte Carlo as in the basement bars of London, Paris and Amsterdam, and her live show with the Stolen Band is not to be missed. Her new album, Come With Me, recorded live-ish with the Stolen Band and released on August 5 2016, showcases the unique blues-cum-bluegrass-cum-Americana-cum-rock sound of their live sound.
