Music is medicine. It has the power to heal, connect, inspire and transform.
Donna Gentile performs Americana, folk and native spirit-inspired originals and covers. She believes music is medicine and has the power to heal and transform. Music helped Gentile take back her power after domestic violence, and today, she uses music and stories to connect, inspire and uplift others.
Gentile is Italian, Irish, Slovak, Lithuanian and German and has strong connections to nature and native European 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.
