This week we lend the hour to songwriter and musician Dayna Kurtz, recorded live at Chickie Wah Wah on Canal Street. In this uninhibited session, she shares with us her music and what’s on her mind. 

Dayna is one tough lady, as she says she “don’t put up with it”, but you can hear the emotion seep through the cracks when she sings the lines, "like a sparrow with a broken wing who has come back to beg you.” Her songs shake you at the core and she sings them from an eloquent voice that has been through some things. With a nostalgic appreciation, she tells us about her influences dating back to the 40s along with some found raiding her elder siblings’ record collections.
