Brisbane based guitar-slinger and singer Dana Gehrman has just had the sort of year most musicians can only dream about. Gehrman shared the studio and toured nationally with the legendary Tim Rogers, toured in support of Phil Jamieson of Grinspoon, Australian music veteran, Mick Thomas and his Roving Commission as well as Melbourne’s Motown greats, The Teskey Brothers. Dana has graced the stage of venues up and down the East Coast and was recognised as a finalist for the 2018 & 2019 Queensland Music Awards.
Armed with her old Fender telecaster and matching Fender amps, Dana takes no prisoners on stage while she brings her 70’s ‘West Coast’ inspired Roots-Boogie to life with more panache and vitality than most rock n roll men could even dream of. From an early age Dana was inspired by the classic albums of the 60’s and 70’s from her parents’ record collection. 2019 will see the release of Gehrman’s debut album, ‘Find A Way’. Co-written and co-produced with Danny Widdicombe and recorded over three days with The Honeysliders, ‘Find A Way’ is a seventies groove based, good-time record reminiscent of the retro sounds so formative for Dana’s love of music.
