"Kurtz tilts her head back at an angle and spins melodic, earthbound poetry that sets loose demons only to dismiss them into the ether... Kurtz makes ordinary misery voluptuous." - L.A. Weekly
Vocalist/writer/musician/producer, Kurtz, has built a formidable body of recordings, won an international reputation as a riveting live performer, amassed an extensive file of rapturous critical raves and earned an equally devoted audience around the world.
Dayna Kurtz is the kind of artist who inspires wild-eyed zealotry among her fan. Here are 3 reasons:
-1. She's an artist's artist, whose whiskeyed, determined alto earns her comparisons with Nina Simone.
-2. While Europeans adore her, she's obscenely underappreciated in her own country.
-3. Her songs straddle a difficult space between jazz, rock, and folk, and are pure poetry.
The Washington Post called her voice "a deep-hued garnet of lifeblood and beauty". Prominent Dutch op-ed writer Frits Abrahams recently referred to her as the "female Dylan."
"There's no logical reason why Dayna Kurtz is not a full-blown star," - The Boston Globe
Along the way, Kurtz was named Female Songwriter of the Year by the National Academy of Songwriters. Norah Jones and Bonnie Raitt have raved about her in interviews, and she’s performed on World Cafe, Mountain Stage and NPR’s Morning Edition. She’s toured with and/or opened for Elvis Costello, Antony and the Johnsons, Richard Thompson, Rufus Wainwright, B.B. King, Dr. John, Richie Havens, Keren Ann, Joe Henry, Olu Dara, Chris Whitley, Richard Buckner, Ladysmith Black Mambazo and the Blind Boys of Alabama.
Kurtz's seventh studio album and collection of original compositions, is titled "Rise and Fall", followed by her recordings with Robert Maché, titled Here Vol. 1 and Here Vol. 2.
