To celebrate the release of her upcoming album Late Slap, Dana Gavanski brings her exquisite brand of indie folk-pop to Ramsgate on Saturday 25th May, performed with a full band!

A must-see show for fans of Cate le Bon, though very much an artist who has found her own, unique voice…

“Dana Gavanski is no doubt finding her place among the most promising singer-songwriters around” Loud and Quiet

Born in Vancouver to a Serbian family, but relocating to Montreal to attend university, Dana Gavanski originally planned to pursue a career in film. However, she shifted her attention back to music whenher 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. In 2019, Dana signed with Full Time Hobby and released two 7″ singles (‘One By One’, ‘Catch’) and announced her debut album ‘Yesterday Is Gone’, a co-production between Sam Gleason, Tunng‘s Mike Lindsay and Dana herself. The critically acclaimed album was released in March 2020, followed by an EP of covers titled ‘Wind Songs’, released in August of the same year. Dana‘s second album ‘When It Comes’ was released in April 2022, followed by headline tours around UK, Europe and north America, and is followed by third album LATE SLAP, due for release in April 2024.

LATE SLAP gives voice to the highs and lows of the mindscape in all its joys and terrors, injecting some much needed playfulness into the process of writing about emotionally hard things. “The album holds together the seemingly disparate aspects of my character that I have sometimes tried to repress,”says Dana. “With this album I’m letting them into the room, celebrating them for all their strangeness-a strangeness whichI think we all, on some level, share.”

There’s a party in Dana Gavanski’s head and everyone’s invited-well, kind of.

“A very balanced record that shows the artist standing on solid ground, in comfort with herself, and ready for a further creative take-off. A soothing and pleasant listen”The Quietus
