“I was listening to your songs and every one of them pulled me away—out of where I sit—falling into the song—just like magic… I love your songwriting. It reveals a truth about life, as all good poetry does.”

“A diamond in the rough!”

— Nicole Cassarino Conlon, DFX Entertainment

“One of Connecticut’s all time treasures. A rare talent with a powerful, rich and unique vintage country voice. You won’t want to leave.”

— James Copeland, Writer of Cold Steel, published by The Marshall Tucker Band

“Donna Gentile is just as her unique name intimates… Gentle, yet in touch with what is Relevant and happening Today. Through her own personal trials, and view of the world around her, she spins a web of grace musically that is unmistakably ‘Her.’ More than a musician, Donna provides a Window to the World of struggle… and ultimately Triumph. Whether as a motivational speaker or a musical treat, she offers the youth and adults of today her perspective on how to appreciate the Moment—with high expectation and Passion—as ‘Life is not a rehearsal’.”

— Robert Gottfried, ROB THE DRUMMER
