Donna Loren Releases “Donna Does Elvis In Hawaii” EP

"Donna Does Elvis In Hawaii" EP Cover

Donna’s crush on Elvis has manifested into a sensual serenade. This intimate virtual romance with The King is a portrayal of four of his early classic songs. Her love for both Hawaii and The King has made this possible with help from the masterful Hawaiian and Los Angeles musicians that you will hear on this EP, most notably slack-key guitar legend Sonny Lim, Grammy-Award winner Charles Brotman on ukulele and Maurice Gainen wailing on his vintage Selmer saxophone. This collection is truly a feast for the ears.

One of the included songs, Merry Christmas Baby, was released for the 2010 Holiday Season.

Donna Loren’s “Love It Away” CD Released

"Love It Away" Album Cover

Donna Loren’s “Love It Away” CD now available!

“Love It Away is a tour de force album of Donna Loren’s revealing original compositions as well as classics like Bob Dylan’s I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight which serenades us with a virtuoso violin. She opens with a Randy Newman song, Last Night I Had a Dream, parodying her nightmares as a child. Her ‘see me for who I am’ philosophy is highlighted by the stunning cover photos in which she wears one of her own couture designs. She has opened her heart to us and shows her vulnerability as well as her strengths. Listen to her cover of Neil Young’s Old Man and her original tunes Only Love, OK and the title track Love It Away. The acoustic approach here reminds me of Joni Mitchell’s legendary Blue album or Carole King’s landmark Tapestry LP. Insightful and honest is Donna’s encore to the pop music world. She recently described herself to me as ‘a woman who vanished into a chrysalis and has now emerged liberated’. Donna, now we can forgive you for all the years you’ve been away. Promise this time, you’re back to stay! We need a voice like yours to give us comfort and reassurance that some artists, like fine wine, really do get better with time.”  –Hal Lifson, Entertainment Journalist
