Executive Sessions Concert SeriesDanielia Cotton with Madi Diaz, Liz Lonley
The sheer joy and pain in Danielia Cotton's songs instantly draw the listener in. Like male counterparts Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone or crossover icon Tina Turner, Cotton has not only embraced the notion of black rock—she has redefined it.
Madi Diaz's powerful voice, both uniquely engaging and steeped in tradition, has made her a presence on the roots-rock scene.
Ani DiFranco called Liz Lonley’s music "gorgeous,” adding “I love it!” Internet listeners agreed: Lonley was voted the No. 1 all-time female vocalist in garageband.com’s acoustic category in May 2006.
