Dana Pomfret is a singer-songwriter from New York City, now living in New England. She has recorded her original music for Elektra, SBK and Warner Bros Records, and grew up playing New York’s rock and folk institutions; CBGB’s, Bitter End, Tramps, Lone Star, Bottom Line, etc. She’s signed to a publishing deal with Jean Davoust/Paris, and has performed her original music throughout the US and Europe.
Dana’s 1st CD, “Talk”, was an independent venture which led to a deal with Warner Bros Records. Her 2nd disc, “Soul Collage”, was released on Warner Bros in Europe, Japan and Australia, and independently in the US. The CD features her eloquent, blues-inflected songs and vocals, as well as shining guest performances by rock legends David Crosby and Graham Nash, guitar by co-producer Jeff Pevar, Martin Sexton on backing vocals, and François Moutin on bass.
Dana’s 3rd album, “realtime”, released in Spring, 2003, was co-produced by Emmy Award winning composer-producer-multi-instrumentalist Jim Chapdelaine. “Tracks”, a compilation CD, was released in 2006.
Dana’s brand new release, “Float”, was recorded over a period of nearly 6 years by engineer Tommy Skarupa. Tom lugged his gear from kitchens to living rooms, improvising recording studios everywhere and making it possible for a stellar cast of players to work together – sometimes sight unseen!
Dana’s collaborators this time include legendary guitarist-producer-songwriter Danny Kortchmar, Stefani Langol (keyboards, piano, vocals), Tim McDonald (guitar, vocals), Francois Moutin (upright bass), Jon Peckman (drums, percussion), Jerry Martinez (guitar, vocals), Jeff Pevar (guitar), Steve Postell (guitar) and Jen Lowe (percussion).
