Dana Boulé

Dana Boulé is an American composer, singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist based in Paris, France. Her career spans seven studio albums from punk rock to classical, pop, folk and film scores. Her music has been featured in Woody Allen’s Midnight In Paris, Oscar nominated Jimmy Neutron and she has scored multiple independent features, short films and commercials for clients including MTV Networks and Marie Claire.

A classically trained pianist and never one to stay within the lines, she began her performing career infuriating piano teachers at the age of five by attempting to rewrite Beethoven. After receiving a degree in theater from UCLA, she moved to New York where she embraced the thriving punk scene as front-woman for the bands Stupid and The Sobs with whom she released three albums and had a successful career touring, breaking accordions/keyboards and regularly getting thrown out of clubs.

Having smashed enough hearts and musical instruments, she relocated to Paris, France in 2008 where she went back to her roots in classical music and storytelling to embark on her first solo album, the lush orchestral pop Going, Gone released in 2009. Several tracks from the album have been featured in films, notably Drool (starring Laura Haring, Mulholland Drive). In Paris she met her musical match in fellow American singer-songwriter Erica Buettner and together they formed the meditative folk duo The Resident Cards whose 2013 release We Won’t Leave Any Trace on Proper Records received 4 star reviews (“...a gem of an album” - R2 Magazine, “a superb piece of work” - Fatea Magazine, UK).

In March 2015 Dana will release her second solo album, We All Need To Calm Down, a spacious 85 minute collaborative piece designed for mindfulness, meditation and movement. Using inspiration from her yoga practice and her experience in film, classical and folk music, she blended genres together to create a unique mix to calm down to. A soundtrack for a mindful moment in a chaotic world.

Dana’s other projects include Petit Punk, a music and songwriting program she designed to bring the joy and freedom of music to little punks and their parents everywhere. In September 2015 Dana and The Petit Punks will release Nous Sommes So Awesome, an electro-punk double album in English and French.
