The remarkable Donna Greene is that rare singer who can tear open a song with intelligence, passion and humor until she owns it completely. She brings her huge heart, voice and style to her eclectic repertoire of feisty blues, smoky jazz and down and dirty R&B. She has the range of Eva Cassidy, the grit of Etta James and the sly phrasing of Billie Holiday.
With a CD that is receiving rave reviews and being played all over the world (KJAZZ, BBC, PBS 106-7FM), this band can be tailored to perfectly match your event... from a duo act to a 7-piece band with horns.
