Austin is a really small town, you can know just a handful of people here and through them have a connection to most everyone else you meet.
Case in point, I wanted to get Dana Falconberry on the Transistor Six film schedule. I first heard her on KUT here in Austin and have seen her name around town playing a number of this city's great venues. As soon as I started to ask around to see who managed her I got an email directly from Dana the same day introducing herself as an Austin based artist who really liked the work we were doing and wanted to see if we were interested in doing a session. That kind of kismet happens frequently here in Austin, Texas and it's pretty amazing.
So, a little about Dana, she is originally from Michigan and moved to Austin a few years back. Her band of musicians including Karla Manzur, Gina Dvorak, Matthew Shepherd, Lindsey Verrill and Christopher Cox are all exceptional musicians and singers and together they bring a sound that is really unlike any other. The songs themselves are stories of childhood summer retreats, giving the feeling of innocence and wonder. With many artists you feel like an audience member watching a show, but with Dana and crew you feel like you are around a campfire with friends and part of the party. When you leave you can't help finding yourself longing to go back again. The new album is called Leelanau and it's really beautiful. Check it out and get it here: http://bit.ly/136wSrv
