Singer-songwriter Donna Rae Dailey was born in the American Midwest, came of age in the Colorado Rockies, and moved to London to pursue life as a travel writer. She wrote her first song while on an assignment to cover a songwriting weekend with Dean Friedman at The French House Party, a holiday retreat in the south of France.

Many of Donna Rae’s songs are inspired by her travels. Her musical influences range from the traditional folk music of the British Isles to Delta blues to contemporary folk rock and Americana. Her songs tell stories that are sometimes dark, sometimes humorous, always entertaining.

She divides her time between homes near Tucson, Arizona and in Cambridgeshire, England, and performs on both sides of the pond.
