Drama Queen:  EP, 2021



When the classic rock/blues band, "D & The Situation," began to form in the summer of 2018, the band grabbed Denise Squier-Hornaday as its lead singer as soon as she decided to come out of retirement.

2008 Texas Music Awards (TMA) "Female Vocalist of the Year" finalist and TMA’s “Top Rock Vocalist in 2008,” Squier’s strong, soulful vocals have been compared to Ann Wilson of Heart (Diane Sheets, Vocal Consulting Group, Nashville, TN) and Stevie Nicks (John Tenting, World Voice News, Los Angeles, CA).

As the “D” in D & The Situation, Squier is getting back to the music she grew up singing – paying tribute to the singers she idolizes, such as Ann Wilson, Pat Benatar, Melissa Etheridge, Janis Joplin and Joan Jett.

The band has been celebrated for its dedication to presenting a fun, energetic show -- one that invites the audience to sing along to familiar songs, even when the band puts a new twist on them.

The band's bluesy-rock side was completed with the recent addition of Johnny Goatweed on guitar -- giving D & The Situation a unique edge.

The band will play venues within a 100 mile radius of the Caldwell-Brenham, Texas area.
