Toronto's Dayna Shereck releases her debut EP called Suitcase Full Of Dreams on June 23rd. The project was produced by Larry Beaird of Beaird Music Studios in Nashville. She is also releasing a music video for the song "Goodbye Doesn't Say It All".
“Life is messy, and I’m not afraid to write about it,” says Dayna. “There is no such thing as playing it safe in music. I want to say what people are really feeling, and that comes down to being willing to be vulnerable.”
Dayna describes herself as “a late bloomer” in music and more of a writer than a vocalist.
In the four short years Dayna has been writing, she has made numerous trips to Nashville and developed a strong relationship with Dan Hodges Publishing which has led to writing opportunities with more established writers. She has been placed on NSAI’s “Ones to Watch” list, and has been a finalist and semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition for 2012, 2013 and 2014. She has had her songs recorded by several independent artists, including co-writing two songs placed on Marcum Stewart’s album “Put It in Drive”, an album that has secured TV and film placements in the US, and that has received airplay on the UK-BBC. “Whadaya Say”, a song co-written with Marcum Stewart and Shantell Ogden, was recently placed in the new film “On the Wing” with Corbin Bernsen and Shirley Jones.
“Country music has always been about honesty and true emotion” says Don Graham of Cashbox Canada. “Dayna Shereck delivers both in spades. Great songs, great voice. With talent like this, she will be around for a long time”.
