Bio

Donna Amini is perhaps an unlikely rock musician. As a child she primarily listened to traditional Persian music and classical violin pieces, later discovering a wider musical world when given a radio at age 9 for doing well at a music recital. Her Persian heritage coupled with her eclectic listening taste; including rock, folk, blues, jazz and experimental music contributes to her original sound and unique outlook on music. Since the release of her debut album in 2016, Donna has been busy performing, writing and recording fresh material. Donna's new songs display the range of her skill in crafting melodies around raw electric guitar sounds, generating cutting sonic spaces as well as gentle lulling spirituals; all delivered with seasoned conviction.

Tune and a half. It bristles with an energy akin to many moody '90s alt rock heroes.

There's this smouldering rumble that rests just beneath. This is very compelling - you're bound to stick around.

has an slow burning energy to it, like the low-rolling of thunder before a storm on a hot summer's evening. you could say I'm into it.
