Dana Gillespie's extraordinary journey in the world of entertainment, detailed in her 2021 memoir "Weren’t Born A Man," showcases her multifaceted talent as a singer, songwriter, actress, and broadcaster. Starting her music career in the mid-1960s, Dana made an early impact with singles for Pye Records by age 16 and further established her musical identity with Decca in 1968, releasing albums like "Foolish Seasons" and "Box Of Surprises." Her versatility extended to session singing alongside notable artists like Elton John and David Bowie, and she also shone on stage in prominent musicals including "Catch My Soul" and "Jesus Christ Superstar."

The 1970s brought new heights with her albums "Weren’t Born A Man" and "Ain’t Gonna Play No Second Fiddle," produced under the management of Tony Defries and MainMan alongside David Bowie. Despite the challenges following MainMan's collapse, Dana continued her artistic journey, transitioning to acting and then fully embracing the blues genre in the 1980s with albums like "Blue Job" and "Below The Belt." Her role in founding the Mustique Blues Festival and her ventures into radio presenting and spiritual music further highlighted her dynamic artistry.

Continuing to make waves in the music industry, Dana Gillespie has seen a resurgence in popularity, with a renewed appreciation of her vast catalogue of self-written songs. Her recent albums, including "Deep Pockets," demonstrate her ongoing prowess in music-making. In 2023, at the age of 73, Dana marked another significant milestone by making her debut at the SXSW Music and Film Festival. As she gears up for her first performance at The Sound Lounge in Sutton, Dana Gillespie remains a vibrant and influential figure in music, her career spanning over six decades and reflecting a legacy of continuous innovation and artistic excellence.

Please note the venue is mixed seating AND standing and seats are on a first come first served basis.
