Dayna Kurtz‘s Secret Canon, Vol. 1 was one of Now I’ve Heard Everything’s Best Albums of 2012 and Do I Love You from that record was Now I’ve Heard Everything’s Best Song of 2012. That record consists of mid 20th century r&b, jazz and/or blues songs which have not been previously covered or covered only once. Both live and on record, Dayna is able to infuse this material with tremendous verve and passion.
Dayna has continued down that same road with her latest album, Secret Cannon, Vol. 2. You can see a video of Dayna singing Reconsider Me, a song from that album, by clicking here.
Dayna used to be based here, but moved down to New Orleans earlier this year. So take this opportunity to catch Dayna tonight, her last show ever at The Living Room in its current location. Dayna will be playing will a Peter Vitalone on piano.
