Dana Fuchs has been compared to Janis Joplin. In fact, she even played her in the off-Broadway show entitled, Love, Janis. She also played Sadie in the film Across The Universe. Dana offers an in-depth look at how those roles affected her music. She also talks about songwriting, taking risks, dancing and the key to keeping her incredible voice in such great shape night after night.
