Dana is a provocative lyricist, invoking a superb creative style in her collaboration with songwriters of all genres. She allows space within her work with her clients that brings heat, tension, grit, flight, and her big fucking heart. Her artistry spoke to my heart, and I want to tell you that she is worth every moment you spend with her.

Dana is such a sweet and funny person, which is why we’ve been friends for over 25 years. I’ve always trusted whatever she is doing in life is honest, smart and real. She is also one of my favorite musicians and people.

I worked with Dana when I was going through a really tough time in my life. Making career decisions, navigating the industry, keeping the family intact, and working through some troubling circumstances brought me to a point where millions of album sales and Grammy’s were a stain. I stayed committed to my path because of the deep conversations we had in confidence. She was never anything but honest with me, gentle and so loving.

Dana is a profound teacher who elevates the mind, body and spirit to bring harmony to the individual. She brings a quality of transparency and truth to every deep experience. She brings clarity and focus to the most complex situations and provides hope and deep understanding. I am deeply indebted to Dana for our work together and am recommending her highly.

R. Wilson

The most important commitment I had ever made to myself was my art. My music is my breath. I had to stop and think about the time I was not spending taking care of my mind and body. The Simple Creative Life programs generated ideas within myself that were never there before. Once I factored health into my artistic life, my creativity began to flow with greater generosity.

Many of us struggle maintaining discipline that allows us to create and perform on demand. Working with Dana was empowering because she believed in the power of my mind to seek and know the power of my own choices. Progress can be slow when you are working with other people, but Dana’s limitless approach is a refreshing change when understanding of the artist’s essential unique approach to life is bad ass.

Poem – Slow Leak
