“ …Her songs display a rocker’s attitude vocally and especially lyrically even though the songs are smooth, not ragged and punky”…Jess Marich, Shake Magazine
“Frost’s music hits you like a wry smile from a waitress that serves truckers food by day & rocks out on her Stratocaster at night”-Chicago Acoustic Underground
When the lockdown turned live music venues dark; steady-touring troubadours like singer-songwriter Donna Frost had nowhere to go. Looking inward, she turned the tribulations of COVID into two soothing acoustic folk/blues song collections: The Quarantine Sessions Volume 1 and 2. No stranger to using songs to heal others, Frost often performs at senior centers and fundraisers. These collections draw from personal loss, as well as the universal effect of COVID on all of us as we struggled with new realities, Internet trials, and challenges of all
“I could’ve gotten bitter…but I chose to get better.”- “Bitter But Better” by Donna Frost
With the first strum, Donna asserts her folk story-telling prowess and goes on to show her mastery of mood with ballads and upbeat tunes alike. With tunes like “Quarantine Blues” that help us smile; to “Mama’s Prayers” about the power of a parent’s love; to inspiring tracks like “Bitter But Better” the collection is a calming service to the weary, full of heartfelt and hard-won optimism.
