With a style of music that’s a cross between dreamy, relaxing, optimistic, charming, and introspective, Dana Falconberry has gained a small but devoted following with the two albums she has released so far. She’s about to release a third called Leenanau, her first album for Antennae Farm. Her travels were initially rooted in Michigan before going to college in Arkansas, and then heading to the city she now calls home: Austin, Texas. Of course you can probably read those exact words in every article relating to the Leenanau album but you want a bit more, don’t you?
The album will be released on October 9th, and for now she’s making available a track called “Lake Charlevoix”, a song that may bring to mind those days of summer when all you cared about is hanging with friends, but taking in everything that was around you at the time, from the sounds to the scents to the colors of the sky. Her influences have made her a singer/songwriter worth paying attention to, or at least considering if you’re someone who is into the type of music that provokes thought. Falconberry is not just wallpaper you throw on in the background and have her hit you in a cool fashion like the fan you bought at the department store. Her music is more than that, although once you give her a casual listen, you may find someone worth suggesting to others, which is the whole point of me writing this.
