Purser, otherwise known as Dana Purser Gary, is a dynamic singer/songwriter from Nashville who combines jazz, folk and pop influences together in a way that isn’t easy to describe. They are currently a junior at Washington and Lee University, neatly nestled in the Shenandoah Valley.

Scholasticism serves as Gary’s reflection upon the relationship between a growing perspective and an unchanging place. Nearing the end of the college experience, Gary’s music bursts with the excitement of intellectual and emotional discovery in the final days of adolescence. This debut EP is a consolidation of eclectic tastes and dense ideas. Purser looks to explore the intersections of music, academics and coming of age as the end of college fast approaches. They hark to jazzy textures and folk landscapes alike, with a range and versatility that possesses a powerful reach and unique crossover potential.
