Blues-Rock Singer Will Perform Two Songs from Her Latest Ruf Records CD,
Bliss Avenue

NEW YORK, NY – Ruf Records singer Dana Fuchs is set to perform two songs from her latest CD, Bliss Avenue, live on DIRECTV’s “The Artie Lange Show” Friday night, November 8, airing from 10:00 pm – 1:00 am Eastern Time. Special guest host of the show that night will be Craig Kilborn. “The Artie Lange Show” repeats one hour later from 2:00 am – 5 am Eastern Time. Besides the satellite TV telecast, the show will also be simulcast on SiriusXM Satellite Radio.  After her performances, Dana will also be interviewed by Craig later in the show.

Dana Fuchs and her band recently completed a critically-acclaimed European tour. “If the Bliss Avenue CD was an interesting introduction to New York’s hard hitting vocalist and songwriter Dana Fuchs, her live show quickly revealed all her qualities,” wrote UK’s Ready to Rock in its review of her show at London’s The Borderline club. “She hit the crowd hard from the start, demanding that they give her as much back as she gave them on stage.”

“The Artie Lange Show” is DIRECTV’s bold and irreverent new late night talk show starring iconic comedian Artie Lange, best known for his hilarious stand-up routines and for his tenure with The Howard Stern Show.

“The Artie Lange Show” shoots at their state-of-the art SoHo loft studio in New York City and airs for three hours five nights a-week, and musical guests are invited to perform two songs on their Guitar Center Sound Stage and participate in a full interview segment.

The simulcast reaches 23 million homes on DIRECTV’s Audience Network and an additional 20 million subscribers on SiriusXM Satellite Radio and also airs on stations in select terrestrial radio markets.

The follow-up to her 2011 label debut, Love to Beg in 2011, Bliss Avenue showcases Dana’s magnificent pipes in all their power-edged, soulful glory, laying bare her innermost feelings with provocative and thought-provoking lyrics, backed by an incendiary band led by her long-time wingman and guitarist, Jon Diamond.

All of the songs on the new album were co-written by Dana and Jon and continue to explore areas that are very personal to her, yet universal in their appeal and substance. “If there’s one line that sounds thrown away or dialed in, it has to be redone,” says Dana. “Every word needs to express the emotion of the song or no one will get it and that leaves me cold.”

The resulting album is a window into the singer’s world view, drawing on everything from the tragic loss of her beloved brother to the loneliness of life on the road. “I’m excited for people, especially those fans who have stuck so close with me, to hear Bliss Avenue,” adds Dana, “because I really purged my soul in a starker, more naked way, both lyrically and musically.

“I got so emotional to the point of tears,” she admits, “singing several of these tunes that are so close to home, like ‘So Hard to Move,’ ‘Bliss Avenue,’ ‘Long, Long Game’ and ‘Vagabond Wind.’ I want this album to reach people in a way that’s meant to be inclusive. Not like, ‘Here’s my world and my story,’ but rather, ‘Here’s my story, can you relate...?’”
