Dana Gavanski is a singer/songwriter currently living between Belgrade and London. Born in Vancouver to a Serbian family, but relocating to Montreal to attend university, Dana originally planned to pursue a career in film. However, she shifted her attention back to music when her then ex-partner left her his guitar before moving to NYC. Having known only how to play ‘Diamonds and Rust’ by Joan Baez, Dana picked up a Travis Picking technique book and started re-learning how to play. When in the Summer of 2016, she took a job with her father as a producer’s assistant on a horror film in the Laurentians, she made enough to focus solely on developing her music for a year. With that came her first EP, Spring Demos, released via Fox Food Records in 2017. Dana followed this up with her first single for Full Time Hobby in April 2019, One by One, produced by Mike Lindsay in his Margate studio and a second single “Catch” was released in Nov 2019. A debut full-length album is due for release in Spring 2020.
Dana will be on tour in Feb and April 2020. More info and tickets here.
