Dana Falconberry, an Austin songwriter and Michigan native, is best known for her eloquent interpretations of nature and wildlife in her music. Her 2012 album Leelanau, written as an ode to her childhood visits to the Michigan peninsula of the same name, is a more direct example of such inspiration. Leelanau was heralded by critics for it’s gentle but complex orchestration and garnered Falconberry widespread recognition which grew steadily over 2013.
Backed by her five-piece band, Falconberry proceeded to travel all over the United States, touring as support for other acts and blazing their own paths into unforeseen house shows and DIY spaces. The group was also presented with great opportunities to play festivals like ACL Fest, SXSW, and Noise Pop Festival. The critical recognition only grows further as music writers and radio programmers encounter the well-crafted sound of their live show.
