DONNA DESTRi EMERGES ViCTORiOUS
AS ROCKWiRED.COM's ARTiST OF THE MONTH!!!
MARCH 1, 2012 - The polls have closed for ROCKWIRED.COM's recent ARTIST OF THE MONTH campaign. Voters from all over the U.S. made their vote count and DONNA DESTRI is ROCKWIRED.COM's newest ARTIST OF THE MONTH for her forthcoming release ELEMENT OF FIRE. Some people are just born with rock n roll coursing through their veins and this is most certainly true of DONNA DESTRI. The Brooklyn-born chanteuse grew up amidst the effervescent sounds of early sixties rock along with her brother and future BLONDIE keyboardist JIMMY DESTRI. Hell, her uncle was the drummer for JOEY DEE AND THE STARLIGHTERS (of PEPPERMINT TWIST fame). Having grown up in a musical family it wasn't long before this tough cookie realized her own angelic voice and withthe advent of the New York punk scene, DESTRI's gift had the perfect springboard. She first cut her teeth with THE ZONE BROTHERS and later provided some heavenly back up to DEBORAH HARRY of BLONDIE. In 1983, she made an impression with her take on DAVID BOWIE's REBEL REBEL. Due to management troubles , DESTRI retired from music got married, got divorced , earned a Masters in Literature but as the old saying goes "...wild horses couldn't keep her away". That was her ethereal voice in the background of BLONDIE's 1999 comeback hit MARIA and now DESTRI is back with a hypnotic sound for her forthcoming CD ELEMENT OF FIRE. With a little help from STEVEN JONES of ETRANGERS MUSIQUE, DESTRI's new sound may be a far cry from the halcyon days of CBGB's but it is no less enticing.RELATED LiNKS:
