About Dana

Some people are born with music in their blood and Dana French is one of them. Born in Chicago to Wallace French, considered a first pick drummer in Chicago who played with such greats as Ernest Tubb, Porter Wagner and Buck Owens. Being around these legends in the music industry led to the influence on Dana's music. Playing the guitar at the age of 8 and writing songs almost as long, Dana has amassed a catalog of original songs well over 300 and counting. Dana's music paints a picture of life that is like none other.

With music in his soul and the desire to follow his dreams, Dana co-founded in the late 70's the band DELUXURY. A rockin' R&B Blues band who had a popular base of support throughout a 6 state region in the Midwest United States. The band Deluxury released one album on "Hot Vinyl Records" out of Hollywood California with sponsorships including Miller Beer, Hammer Guitars, Shure Mics, Audio Technica and many more.

Through this relationship, Dana has had the pleasure of opening up for and sharing the stage with the likes of Robert Plant, Joe Jackson, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Jimmy Vaughn, Dickey Betts, Joan Baez and the Legendary Stevie Ray Vaughn. Stevie and Dana became friends instantly and later spent many hours playing together in green rooms and on tour buses.

Upon leaving the band in the late 80's Dana continued on playing throughout the Midwest. Now playing his original music and following his true passion. His original music has caught the notice from some of the top name artists in the industry including Robin Trower, Ronnie Montrose, Buddy Miles, Lonnie Mack, the great Mick Taylor, Lonnie Brooks and the legendary Queen of The Blues Koko Taylor. In 2003 he released his first album with Hidden Tracks Records of Chicago containing 14 original tracks. His second solo album released in 2014 titled "Just Me" features 11 original intimate songs about a life like no other.
