Biography

Dana Falconberry suffuses the majesty of nature in the orchestral pop-folk she elegantly crafts in her album Leelanau, an ode to the rural northern Michigan peninsula of the same name. After a childhood studying classical ballet and modern dance, the Michigan native left home when she was 18 to attend Hendrix College in Arkansas. There she discovered the timeless songs of the Ozarks and the Delta and devoted herself to music. In 2004, she moved to Austin, TX to focus on her own songs: stripped-down songs inspired by dreams, memories, and landscapes. For 2012s Leelanau, Falconberry is bolstered by the exquisite orchestration of her six-piece touring band, who are central to the bountiful soundscapes Falconberry creates.
