Corpse That Stayed
Donna Dunne joins us
Donna Dunne is an original retro-revamped Americana styled artist from Dublin. Dunne has been a fixture on the Dublin music scene since 2012 with her first single “Woman in Black” which achieved regular rotation on national radio in Ireland.
After the release of 'Woman In Black', Donna was labeled as the sound of an old 50’s rockabilly singer and the new Imelda May, who is renowned as Irelands rockabilly sweetheart. Although the ultimate compliment, Donna has many musical influences & wanted to be her own artist. Donna traveled to the UK to work with musicians who could help her find the sound she wanted. Together they recorded, toured parts of the UK/Ireland, released a 2nd EP and got signed to a record label in the UK. Unfortunately, the band split in 2015.
Dunne has supported top artists such as David Gray , Beautiful South, The Strypes and headlined at this years Rock 'n' Roll Festival in Dublin. In 2016, she travelled to the USA and performed with different artists around the country for a month. She recorded two new songs and a music video, which was released July 2016
In August 2016 Phil Doyle owner of Diablo Records UK Record label saw a YouTube video of Donna Dunne and immediately contacted her in regards to recording an album. Diablo Records, founded in 2007 Camden Town has been recording and releasing artists such as Jennie Bellestar, Chris Foreman, Rick Buckler, Adam Ant Rockabilly & Psychobilly bands like the Tall Boys, The Deltas and many more.
In 2015 the Diablo Studios moved to North Acton London and the studio Unit 2 which has recorded the likes of Toy Dolls, Fun lovin' Criminals and more is now used as the new recording home.
