Dana Sipos' hypnotic, tenderly skewed songs are filled with a wild wind. Described as a «consummate singer and songwriter with a wholly unique sound» by No Depression, Sipos’ rhythmic fingerstyle guitar playing is textured and immersive, and her true strength lies as a songwriter.
She tours extensively in North America, Europe and the UK, occasionally by bicycle, tall ship, canoe and train. Her last album, Roll Up the Night Sky, released on underground Nashville label Muddy Roots Records, was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award in the Pushing the Boundaries category for innovation in creating new folk sounds. She was a Kerrville New Folk Finalist in 2017 and attended the inaugural Songwriter Residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts.
A new album, featuring a breadth of Canadian talent including Mary Margaret O'Hara and Jesse Zubot, will be released on Toronto's Roaring Girl Records in May 2018.
Dana Sipos est une auteure-compositrice-interprète d’une pureté exceptionelle. Avec sa mandolin, cette musicienne accompli propose une musique folk traditionelle puissante, douce, et touchante qui, sans prétention, a le pouvoir de rassembler autour de thèmes universels et intemporels.
