Northport N.Y. - M.C. Records is thrilled to announce the signing of eclectic artist, Dayna Kurtz. Her recording Secret Canon, Vol. 2 is set for a Spring release. Mark Carpentieri, President of M.C. Records said of the signing, I've been a fan of Dayna's close to a decade now, the music she makes is the reason I wanted to start a record label.

Secret Canon, Vol. 2 will be a collection of uncovered blues and R&B gems from the 1940's-1960's. Dayna has been researching music for this project for months to come up with just the right material. In addition, Secret Canon, Vol. 2 will also contain a few of Dayna's smoky and seductive originals. The sessions for the recording are taking place at her home base in New York as well as one of Danya's favorite cities, New Orleans. Look for Dayna to be touring the U.S. to support this wonderful collection of songs.

Over the past decade, the Brooklyn-based vocalist/writer/musician/producer has been bestowed with many awards and praises. Dayna Kurtz was named Female Songwriter of the Year by the National Academy of Songwriters.  Norah Jones and Bonnie Raitt have raved about her in interviews, and she's performed on such high-profile radio shows as World Cafe, Mountain Stage and NPR's Morning Edition.  She's toured with and/or opened for the likes of Elvis Costello, Richard Thompson, Rufus Wainwright, B.B. King, Dr. John, Richie Havens, Keren Ann, Joe Henry, Olu Dara, Chris Whitley, Richard Buckner, Ladysmith Black Mambazo and the Blind Boys of Alabama.

For more information including bio, photos and interviews, please get in touch.

Check out Dayna performing her composition "Not The Only Fool In Town" from Secret Canon Vol. 1 on WFUV.

The Critics Check In

Kurtz tilts her head back at an angle and spins melodic, earthbound poetry that sets loose demons only to dismiss them into the ether.
-Judith Lewis, LA Weekly

Rich as the darkest Godiva chocolate, the voice gets into your bones until you can barely sleep at night and can’t get through the day without it….Kurtz sounds at times like her musical DNA contains traces of Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits, not to mention the world’s great cabaret singers.
– Paste

Dayna Kurtz’s diverse vocals feel both old and new, recalling Nina Simone of yesteryear…hypnotically haunting
– New York Post

Dayna Kurtz’s voice is a deep-hued garnet of lifeblood and beauty…
– The Washington Post
