Dana Fuchs is one of the most admired blues-rock stars in the world today. Her hypnotic voice and presence have led critics to compare her to Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, and Mick Jagger. Born in New Jersey and raised in Wildwood, Florida, the raspy-voiced blues-rock-soul singer-songwriter found inspiration in her parents’ Ray Charles and Hank Williams record collection.
Upon leaving high school, Fuchs had no choice but to follow her muse to New York City, finding herself as the toast of Broadway when starring in the Janis Joplin musical Love, Janis. Soon thereafter, she did another star turn in Julie Taymor’s romantic musical drama Across the Universe, which was nominated for Best Picture at the Golden Globe Awards. Dana’s latest effort, Borrowed Time, finds her revisiting her Southern Rock roots with a deliciously dangerous collection of her incredible songs and lyrics. Producer Bobby Harlow (Detroit Cobras, Samantha Fish) managed to capture the tornado-in-a-bottle intensity, urgency, power, restraint, and passion of Dana’s live show on a studio album. Borrowed Time is the rawest, most rocking musical offering of Dana’s career, and was released April 29, 2022, via Ruf Records.
