Dayna is a remarkable singer songwriter. She has a voice that is equally at home singing blues, jazz, folk etc. Critic James Reed of the Boston Globe wrote in a review of Beautiful Yesterday that ‘there’s no logical reason why singer-songwriter Dayna Kurtz is not a full-blown star.’ I couldn’t agree more. She just released Secret Canon Volume 2. It is a beautiful record. Goodnight Moonshine is a collaboration of songwriters Molly Venter of the chart-topping Americana group Red Molly, and Eben Pariser of the explosive Brooklyn quintet Roosevelt Dime. Steeped in the 90’s alternative music of their youth, Goodnight Moonshine plays modern folk music with brazen vocals and roots & blues guitar. Imagery-rich stories and bold melodies create a sound that is both celebratory and mournful, reminding the listener of what it felt like to fall in love with a band for the first time.
