Episode 51 - March 27, 2016

Dayna Manning podcast, singer songwriter, interviewDayna Manning is one of Canada’s most accomplished singer songwriters.

When she was in her teens she had a hit song on the radio. Soon after that she found herself, in the words of Joni Mitchell, “Stoking the star maker machinery behind the popular song.”

At times the chat you are about to listen to unfolds like an episode of the popular TV show “Nashville”…except it’s not a TV show.

This is the story of a real person, trying to make a difference in her community, and the world, through music.

We discuss Tom Petty’s influence, working with Grammy award winning music producer Jim Scott, Dayna’s contribution to Stratford, Ontario’s Heritage Square committee, and her sojourn in northern British Columbia.

As well as having a successful solo career, these days Dayna is playing sold out concerts with Emm Gryner and Lindsay Schindler as part of the popular trio Trent Severn.

We talk about the writing process behind some of their songs.

    Dayna Manning brought me here. i have followed this talented woman since Volume I and it is a treat to get to know more about her and her life. I had no idea she was involved in Trent Severn and I am glad to have discovered this trio including her. So pleased she is still making music.
