A musical breeze from Chattanooga has been blowing through Cleveland recently. It comes back every month, and sounds like nothing you've heard before - unless you're already a fan of Dana Rogers. The 28-year-old singer/songwriter accompanies herself on acoustic guitar, but she's much more than the introspective folkie you might take her for at first glance. Her songs, delivered in a low, brooding voice that evokes dark saloons on rainy nights, combine jazz, folk and rock in a strange and intoxicating cocktail. - Bradley Weekly News
