Artist - Dona Oxford
Of English, Dutch, and German descent, Doña is the offspring of a trumpet playing Episcopal Priest father and a cabaret singer mom (her best pal). Born on June 2, this Gemini is a seasoned performer. She started playing piano at age five, on a one octave toy piano. She took lessons at school without her parents knowledge. By age 6 it was apparent that Doña was serious. Her mother bought her an upright Baldwin piano - her first real piano, and by 7 she was giving concerts at school.
Along the way, Doña took center stage with another talent - singing. Doña strengthened her pipes and learned her stage savvy with years of theatrical work; both regionally and Off-Broadway. With her theatrical interest, she went to New York City to study Drama at NYU, Tisch School of the Arts. But it was her lust for Blues and Rock & Roll that inspired Doña to leave the theater business and set out for the New York Nightclub Scene!
