Dayna is thrilled to be joining Dave Bidini and pals to celebrate The Humber River edition of The West End Phoenix. Stay tuned for details on this event July 7th in Toronto, where Dayna will debut a new song about this iconic river.
Dayna filmed a segment at Fox 17 Nashville with Eric Dahl for his show Rock & Review yesterday. They talked about Trent Severn's new album Portage, Michael McConville Guitars, Tonewood-Amp, and yes, her solo record! Stay tuned for imminent info on that, and a show airdate. Big thanks to Eric and FOX 17 Nashville for talking all things Dayna.
As a songwriter, this one has been on the bucket list for a long time. I prefer small songwriting rooms to any theatre or stadium I've played, and The Bluebird Cafe was the ultimate. What an intimate rush. Eternal gratitude to the Tonewood Amp family, and my fellow artists, Justin Johnson, Shaun Hopper, Mike Dawes et all.
Dayna penned, performed, produced and even made the video for the new Trent Severn single,"The Jack Pine". The piece honours the 100th anniversary of famed Canadian painter Tom Thompson's untimely death, which in part spawned The Group of Seven. The song imagines The Jack Pine itself sing to Thomson as the tree is the subject of his soon to be most famed painting. The video features extreme close ups of the 101 year old painting hanging at the National Gallery of Canada.
