ACROSS THE UNIVERSE
DANA FUCHS (Sadie) makes her film debut in Across the Universe. On stage in New
York City, Fuchs starred in the Off-Broadway hit "Love, Janis," about the life of Janis
The youngest of six musical children, Dana Fuchs was raised in a small town in rural
Florida surrounded by music. Arriving in NYC alone and broke at the age of 19, Fuchs
joined with guitarist Jon Diamond to form the Dana Fuchs Band. Within a year, the
band was a feature act at New York's best blues clubs, often sharing the stage with the
likes of John Popper, James Cotton, and Taj Mahal. She began writing her own rock
songs and became a staple on the rock scene sharing the bill with national acts Little
Feat, Marianne Faithfull, and Etta James. Through these performances, she was
spotted by the producers of "Love, Janis," who cast her after hearing a single
performance of "Piece of My Heart." Her songs (which she writes as well as performs)
have been featured in the film Sherrybaby.
Fuchs' songs can be heard on the upcoming "Dana Fuchs Live From NYC" CD and
DVD, as well as on her debut CD, "Lonely For A Lifetime," which was released to an
enthusiastic response from both press and fans. Her website is www.danafuchs.com.
