A young singer/songwriter and speaker, Dana travels throughout the U.S. to encourage and inspire others with her songs and witness. Growing up in a Catholic family, Dana always had a strong faith, but it wasn’t until she went to college that her relationship with God truly deepened.
Through the ups and downs of college life, Dana began to understand that true and lasting happiness, peace, and purpose is found in Christ alone. Only then did she realize that God was calling her to step out and share His truth and love with others using the musical gifts she was given.
Now, Dana finds abundant joy in allowing the Lord to use her and her music for His greater glory. Dana independently released her debut album, Glorious Horizons, in September 2015. After signing with a new Christian record label, Rekindle Records, she released her first single, “My Savior in Me,” and released her new album “Nothing in the World” in April 2018.
