From Donna Greene & The Roadhouse Daddies
“Donna Greene’s blues are dry martini blues. She sings with a lotta swagger, a dash of sauce and a cool retro vibe. She’d have been right at home on stage at the Sands of the Rat Pack days or Ciro’s on Sunset Boulevard circa 1948. But, it's 60 years later and Donna’s attitude and energy is totally 21st century. She gives ya masterful singing that’s sensual, emotive, and fun. "A Girl’s Gotta Have A Little Pleasure” is a winner! It’s a superbly-produced treasure highlighting Donna’s pristine singing with the style and punch of The Roadhouse Daddies!” Nick Gerard, Host of “Nothin’ But the Blues” on KKJZ 88.1 FM Los Angeles and www.JazzAndBlues.org
“This is an absolutely perfect example of how to sing the blues; beautiful, exquisite, brilliant, wonderful, sublime, sophisticated… sorry, running out of words.” Peter Merrett, PBS 106.7FM, Melbourne, Australia
“Great bluesy voice… Jeannie Cheatham, look out!” Tommy Saville, BBC Radio Nottingham
It's a perfect combination of tasty old blues women songs, bluesy classics performed with ultimate cool, a selection of distinctive, horn-laden jazz riffs with a woman who can really tell a story. Donna Greene has the range of Eva Cassidy, the grit of Etta James and the sly phrasing of Billie Holiday.
She came out of nowhere, looking like she just stepped off a train in 1940, walked into a bar and started singing the blues. Her amazing voice goes from a sultry whisper to a sizzling howl of pain. She has a vintage flair that immediately recalls the glamour of the 1940’s and draws her audiences in with her sexy roadhouse style. She gets things rocking.
