Biography

Singer, Songwriter, Dancer, Actor, Teacher, Daughter, Sister, Friend, True New Yorker, Dana Athens hits the stage, strums your heart strings and bears her soul, in high hopes that the audience, whether it be a woman in the subway, a child in a dance class, a customer she serves brunch to on a Saturday afternoon, or simply a stranger that happened to catch a set at a loft in a desolate neighborhood in Brooklyn, will relate and remember what it is to be human.
Dana has been performing almost her whole life-starting out singing in church, then dancing with the Vicky Simegiatos Performing Arts Center (VSPAC) and their company, then studying musical theatre at Professional Performing Arts High School NYC, then performing at the Ensemble Studio Theatre. She put her skills together and forged a path towards music.
She performs under two separate bands:

Dana Athens And The Few: Feisty Soul, belted and beautiful, songs laid bare, taken from the stage to the ceiling with force.

Danger And The Wolves: Acoustic-Acapella-Bluesy-Burlesque...An eclectic mix of beautiful & talented women singing heartfelt tearjerkers & quirky anecdotal diddies in their unmentionables.

Dana likes to be challenged and keep busy, lending her talents to commercial endeavors such as a recent Pepsi Public Service Announcement for feeding America, in which she did her own rendition of ‘America the Beautiful’, as well as her own rendition of ‘NY, NY’, that is airing on ESPN for the 2010 US Open.
