Music Is Medicine
Donna Gentile performs Americana, folk, world and native spirit-inspired originals and covers. Her debut “Music is Medicine” EP arrives August 16, just in time for Daniel Nimham Pow Wow!
Gentile believes music is medicine — ancestral medicine — with the power to heal and transform. Music helped Donna take back her power after domestic violence, and today, she uses music and stories to connect, inspire and uplift others.
Donna is Italian, Irish, Czechoslovakian, Lithuanian and German and was raised in the foothills of the Berkshires of Northwest Connecticut. She has strong connections to nature and native European and American spirituality, which is evident in her music.
There is a velvet, honey and rustic edge to Gentile’s sound. Audiences are moved by her rich vocals, inspirational stories and authentic delivery. Original lyrics are woven with deep meaning and upbeat melodies that haunt and hook.
