Biography

Dn'A is a refreshing new sound to the world of singer songwriters. The music is characterized by Donnie’s distinctive guitar work and Ashley’s deeply personal lyrics, signature velvety tone and dynamic powerhouse voice. Their sound is a unique blend of rock, blues, country and folk coupled with only an acoustic guitarist and vocalist.

The power and majesty of their live performance brings the music to life. Their live energy takes the audience on an unexpected emotional journey and reaches deep into the heart and soul of the listener. Donnie and Ashley are an acoustic duo with two different musical backgrounds that have created a magical fusion.

Ashley grew up in Oklahoma singing along side her father’s bluegrass gospel band, beginning at the early age of four. Her taste for performing inspired her to continue her musical training as a Vocal Performance Major in college. She received numerous awards and placed first chair in the 1997 Texas All State Choir.

Raised in New Mexico, Donnie discovered his love of the guitar at an early age. It was during this time that music became the driving force in his life. After learning only a few chords he instantly began writing his own music. By age 20 he co-founded the rock band “Reason” and performed locally for eight years, opening for Stevie Nicks at the Journal Pavilion in 2001.

In search for fresh opportunities, the duo have recently put their musical backgrounds together and completed their debut acoustic album Headin’ Home. It is an emotional and powerful collaboration of strong melodic songs that uniquely signify Dn'A

Lyrics

Headin' Home

Written By: Dn'A

Verse 1

And there you go, walkin' down that old dirt road, just heading home
It's all you know, tireless workin' round the clock, it never stops
Your on your own, trying anything you can, to be a better man
Livin' day by day, Many worries on your mind, running out of time

Chorus

The days are long, the nights are longer, just heading home
The days are long, the nights are longer, just heading home

Verse 2

Just look around, so much to be thankful for, you said it all before
Much older now, Did it all the best you could, everything you should
What happens now, Life was so much simpler then, remember back when
And there you go, walkin' down that old dirt road, just heading home

Chorus

The days are long, the nights are longer, just heading home
The days are long, the nights are longer, just heading home
The days are long, the nights are longer, just heading home

Instrumental

Bridge
Oh weary soul, come home to me
Oh weary soul, come home to me

Chorus

The days are long, the nights are longer, just heading home
The days are long, the nights are longer, just heading home
The days are long, the nights are longer, just heading home
The days are long, the nights are longer, just heading home

The Simple Life

Written By: Dn'A

Verse 1

It all seems so clear, the way it is here
Just slow it down, hear all the sounds
The simple life, simple life
There is no need to run a red light
Just takin' my time to do everything right
The simple life

Chorus

It used to seem like a dead end without any light
Lookin' back I understand why livin' this life's all right
The simple life, oh it is all right

Verse 2

I can feel the wind on my face
And hear all the birds singin songs full of grace
The simple life, the simple life
It all seems so clear, the way it is here
Counting all of the stars and strummin' the old guitar
The simple life

Chorus

It used to seem like a dead end without any light
Lookin' back I understand why livin' this life's all right, yea
It used to seem like a dead end without any light
Lookin' back I understand why livin' this life's all right

Bridge

Oh, Take me to that place, the place that I know, cause I can finally see

Chorus

The simple life, oh, it is all right, the simple life

Love & Lies

Written By: Dn'A

Verse 1

She seduced him with her lust and love, her name was Delilah
He couldn't tell her no, he loved her so, she finally broke him down
Don't under estimate what he would do for a taste of love
It's a crazy thing, it feels so right or leaves you with a sting

Verse 2

When I finally open myself
There are endless possibilities to lift me off the ground
It can take me on a ride so high, I'll never come back down
It's a crazy thing, it feels so right or leaves you with a sting

Chorus

I'm hanging on to every word you say, I'm waiting for your endless gaze, don't break my heart this way, this way

Verse 3

He cheated destiny to love this way
He never thought that she would sell his heart and lead him to his fate
Don't under estimate what she would do to deceive his love
It's a crazy thing, it feels so right or leaves you with a sting

Chorus

I'm hanging on to every word you say, I'm waiting for your endless gaze,
don't break my heart this way, this way, this way, this way
please don't break my heart this way

Heart of Fire

Written By: Dn'A

Hear the rain falling down all around, it can’t quench my burning desire
You and me, it’s all we’ll ever need
Pure of heart, I have felt it from the start
I feel your warmth pouring over me like water
You lift me up when I’m down, I can’t imagine life without you around

Always together, our love will last forever
You never judge me, you just let me be free
You and me, it’s all we’ll ever need,
In this heart of fire, I burn

On this long windy road we’re travelin’ on,
Lord I know, that this path has a meaning
You and me, Heart of fire, I burn Oh how I burn for you
You lift me up when I’m down, I can’t imagine life without you around

Always together, our love will last forever
You never judge me, just let me be free…
You and me, it’s all we’ll ever need
In this heart of fire, Oh I burn for you
