Dayna Kurtz - Secret Canon Vol.2 (CD)
Dayna Kurtz's Secret Canon, Vol. 2 will be released on June 4 and is a collection of uncovered blues and R&B gems from the 1940's-1960's. Dayna has been researching music for this project for months to come up with just the right material. In addition, Secret Canon, Vol. 2 will also contain a few of Dayna's smoky and seductive originals. The sessions for the recording took place in New York as well as Danya's new home in New Orleans.
It's bluesy, it's bold and so very, very classic. - Muruch.com
