Information:

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 and distortion pedals, with a dusting of fiddle and a touch of alt-country eccentricity. With the five-piece, all-female Stolen Band, Dana has been getting feet stomping across the UK folk, blues, Americana and rock scenes since 2015, winning over crowds from Glastonbury to Boomtown, the Barfly to Union Chapel.

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. Come With Me, her first album featuring the distinctive and unique blues-cum-bluegrass-cum-Americana-cum-rock sound of the Stolen Band, was released in 2016 and garnered rave reviews and heavy airplay worldwide.

The Stolen Band’s sound reflects its members’ eclectic influences, from Alice Cooper to Hank Williams, Led Zeppelin to Crosby, Stills & Nash, routed via the bluegrass turnpike around the oldtime township of alt-country. Whether in front of intimate club audiences or huge festival crowds, their high-energy genre-defying live show is not to be missed.
