This band has that python style blues movement that looks beautiful but can swallow your heart. As for Dana, the vocalist, think of Aretha Franklin, Bonnie Raitt, Ethel Waters or Mamie Smith, then start again because this girl is unique. One minute her voice soothes you like your mama, then the lead bassist starts some funk and before you know it, her vocals are swagging by on a pair of stilettos and you are toast. Her band, Mr. December, know precisely what is needed to underpin a voice like hers. They are all stand alone artists yet weave together to articulate the perfect backdrop for her vocals.
