Squirrel Head Music is proud to announce the release of Dayna Shereck’s latest single The Missing Part, her second collaboration with award-winning producer J. Richard Hutt and Cedartree Studios.
Co-writing the song with Dave Woods and Ray Walsh, Dayna believes The Missing Part “is appropriate to the times we are living through, as people are feeling lost and looking for something to make them feel connected. There is a lot of hope in this song: it is about reconnecting to what is important and finding ourselves again.”
Based in Toronto, Dayna took her songwriting passion to Nashville eight years ago and through her relationship as an unsigned writer with Dan Hodges Music, has nurtured a network of strong songwriting partners including Marcum Stewart, Carrie DeMaeyer and Juno, CCMA & OCMA award winning independent Canadian Country vocalist Jamie Warren.
Dayna’s songs have been included on several independent Country artists’ albums, she has been a 2012 & 2013 Semi-Finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, and a Finalist in 2014. In 2015 she had her first film placement with her song Whadaya Say, in the movie On The Wing, starring Shirley Jones.
In 2015, she released her debut EP, Suitcase Full of Dreams, followed by 2018’s Chasing The Moon and 2019’s Triggered. To date she has received airplay on CBC/SiriusXM, Cashbox Radio and Country stations across Europe, the United States and Canada. The Missing Part is her 5th single.Sometimes we have to go back to the start…..…to find that missing part…..
Thanks so much for visiting my site! I'm excited to share that my new EP “Triggered” will be released on October 25th! I have been working on it over the past year and a half, travelling between Toronto and Nashville. I want to send a big thank you to CBC for all of the support I have received as a songwriter over the past two years. My first single off the EP “Jane” received airplay on CBC Country/SiriusXM Canada and my song “Triggered” has been added to CBC’s Canadian Songwriter Playlist this week. What makes this extra special is that I got a chance to work with my longtime co-writers and friends (Dave Woods, Ray Walsh, Marcum Stewart, and Jeff Orson). The EP also includes a duet version w Jeff Orson on our song co-written with Dave Woods “Won’t Let Me Let Go” which received radio play nationally this past year. I hope to send out music over the coming weeks. Thanks again so much for listening 🎶🎶🎶Dayna 💗

Although I don't normally hit Nashville during the summer because of how crazy hot it is, I had a good reason to go this year. I am recording my 3rd EP that I will release at the end of October. It is a compilation of songs that I have written through the year, including a duet with Jeff Orson that I will include on this EP. The solo version was released by Jeff early in the year and received airplay across North America and airplay on CBC in Canada. The first song I will be releasing to radio was co-written with Marcum Stewart who I started writing with over 8 years ago when I first came to Nashville . The song is called "I Heard It All Before". I also had a great time writing with a very talented Nashville based artist Andrea Goodman along with Marcum Stewart. I also had the opportunity to attend a wonderful workshop led by Gretchen Peters, this is the first workshop I have attended and I learned so much!!
I'm thrilled to be releasing my 2nd EP "Chasing The Moon" on January 15th, 2018. This EP was written over the past year, and recorded in Nashville in October, 2017. It is my most personal collection of songs and I focus more on family than I have in the past. This is also the first time I have a song released to radio, my single "Two Feet On The Ground" will be released January 1st, 2018!
"I have a lot of respect for Dayna's drive. Her relentless hard work, co-writing and frequent trips to Nashville have proven successful. She has built relationships with artists and writers and now her songs are being heard by mainstream major label artists" Barbara Sedun, President Reliant Music.
I will be heading back to Nashville in early February to record for this new project. I am also excited to be attending the release party of my friend and co-writer Andrea Goodman, who is releasing her first full length album "No Man's Land".
"Jane" is the first song off my new EP and was released at the end of January to all digital media outlets including Spotify, Apple music etc. The song has been added to CBC Country SiriusXM and is receiving regular airplay. I am so grateful to have my music heard and that is possible because of CBC.
