The adventures of Dana-Marie continue...

Well indeed, Dana-Marie found herself in Williams Lake, BC this week to clean up the mess she made on tour last year.  Oh you know what we're talking about here...  and if you don't, check out Dana-Marie's Vlog's on Youtube.  She went through fire and ice to get there (yes, literally, there was a forest fire in Lillooet and Avalanche clearing north of Pemberton) but while up in Williams Lake, Dana-Marie made the most of it.  She found The Bean Counter and serenaded the cafe dwelling peoples of the north for a few hours, made new fans and greeted old ones.  Now she's heading back to the city and ready to rehearse for her acoustic gig with John Ellis this Thursday at Trees Organic Coffeehouse on Granville.  For more details, read Dana-Marie latest Blog/Newsletter here.

New Music Video Launched!


The official music video for "The Struggle to Forgive".  Produced and Directed by Phill Bartlett.

Comments from Dana-Marie:

The video tells a story of two young kids struggling in their own way to carry on while portraying the bully's own journey as sympathetically as the victim's.  They both seek compassion and yearn to understand why people act as they do.  "The Struggle to Forgive" does not offer any answers, it's simply my outcry from witnessing so much maliciousness and corruption in the world.  The song and video are about wishing for the courage to resist being pulled in to the game, and the strength to triumph over it with grace, understanding and love.

If this video resonates with you, please post it on your Facebook wall and/or Tweet it.  Please also take a second to post a Youtube comment and let me know what you think.  I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Dana-Marie at Breakout West

Dana-Marie just returned from Whitehorse, Yukon Territory where she attended the Western Canadian Music Awards and the Breakout West Festival.  It was an amazing weekend hanging with the best musicians in Western Canada, learning about the biz at seminars, networking, singing a tune at the Jarvis Street Saloon, and mingling with the locals of the North.  Dana-Marie will definitely be back to the Yukon!
