Good Instead of Bad” is available to stream on your preferred platform now.  

It’s more a mood than a story. The feeling of getting stuck in that divisive, bland judgement of things as one or two dimensional; good versus bad, right versus wrong. It’s an observation of how we get stuck in these ways of thinking. When something isn’t working or you’re losing touch, it’s no longer a question of wrong or right. It’s a lot more subtle and nuanced and depends on each unique situation.

Yesterday Is Gone reflects Dana’s aim “to make something bigger, more thought through.” Steeped in determination and uncertainty in equal measure – “I just wanted to write a good song” – the album took shape after she returned from a writing residency in Banff, AB. She left the residency resolved not to worry about her songs being “too obvious.” She’d begun to learn the art of empty time, of being alone with her emotions, losing herself in a landscape. She considered how she might use writing to make sense of her life after the tumults of a break-up and a new city. 


Adrift in Toronto, Dana struggled to feel at home and connected to people, but the solitude also allowed her to ground herself in writing. She kept office-style hours at her bedroom desk every day until she started to understand the writing process, to see that “transforming a burning desire into something clear and tangible is a vulnerable and delicate act. You have to be able to let things happen, to accept losing control.”
