Dana Fuchs: Songs From The Road Review

Dana Fuchs takes us on tour with her in her latest release, Songs From The Road. A collection that spans her hits, past and present, the album delivers a first hand listen behind the doors of an intimate Dana Fuchs concert experience.

Dana is a true storyteller, with her share of bumpy roads, the road that drives the most powerful of artistic creation. With a prelude to each track, Dana takes her audience through her trials and tribulations, and in turn, the creative process that lead to the impending final product. With each note, she sends her listener on a soulful journey down that road. Dana maintains a careful balance of ballad and boisterous tracks. From the emotionally tender “Sad Salvation” to the bluesy swagger of “How Did Things Get This Way,” the set is well crafted. Smooth backing vocals juxtapose Dana’s rugged demeanor and provide balance and complexity to every verse. Dana makes her way to a Beatles cover on “Don’t Let Me Down.” The slow and steady interpretation shines through, as it suits her style just right.

Songs From The Road is a nice collection of songs, and offers a look at the impressive set list Dana puts together for her fans. A live album is a true test of talent, in its raw, unadulterated exposure to the artist at their most vulnerable.
