Donna Slaters’ soulful voice captures audiences wherever she plays, whether it’s listening rooms or biker bars. Her mesmerizing vocal style can best be described as purest Americana, ranging from blues to country with hints of her Ozark background thrown in for good measure. But it’s her original songs where her spirit shines strongest. Slater bypasses the standard love or love gone wrong themes and ventures into reflections on domestic violence, the meth addiction crisis in the rural areas, Alzheimers and others about navigating lifes temptations and challenges. “I’ve always played a rather eclectic mix of songs in my live shows and that has carried over into my songwriting. Some of mine are country but I have others that are straight-up blues, alt-country and bluegrass..just whatever I’m feeling at the moment” Slater has performed at the Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival, Mississippi Songwriters Festival, 3rd Street Songwriters Festival ( Baton Rouge),Hwy 80 Songwriters, Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival, Road to 3rd Street ~Songs On the Bayou and with the Last Honky Tonk Music Series.
