The melodic rock ‘n’ roll band Donna Cannone will celebrate the new single release ‘Is It True’ feat. Mia Karlsson (Crucified Barbara) with new music video.

‘It all started as a game, something fun to do. As it should be.’


And with that, Donna Cannone was born. Former Thundermothermember Giorgia Cateri (guitars) and her fellow Italian ex-pat found themselves heading to a rehearsal room to play some music and, in their own words, ‘have some fun.’ Giorgia’s former Thundermother bandmate Tilda Stenqvist was brought in on drums as the trio began putting together a number of new songs. A knock at the door brought a surprise as, guitar in hand, Björn ‘Speed’ Strid (SoilworkThe Nightflight Orchestra) had heard what the band were up to and wanted in. Keen to express himself as a lead guitarist, the world-renowned singer was impressed with what he’d heard the fledgling trio coming up and with and soon the quartet were recording demos. One of these demos fell into the hands of Swedish label Despotz Records and a deal was soon done.

The first fruits of this deal were a brace of well-received singles – ‘Cross the Line‘ and ‘Nothing to Do‘, both of which saw the band picking up support across the world and alerting everyone to the presence of Donna Cannone. The band released (April 22nd) the third and last single ‘Is It True‘, featuring a guest appearance from former Crucified Barbarasinger/guitarist Mia Karlsson. They will now celebrate the  single release with a new music video. 

Mia KarlssonandDonna Cannone about the single:
“After years away from the music scene, I couldn’t wish for a better way to return than with this super group of talented musicians and friends. Their positive vibe and genuine passion is so inspiring. I am so happy and lucky to be a part of this song!” // Mia Karlsson

“Sometimes life takes turns that seem so unreal and it makes you wonder whether you’d be able to get yourself through it all… by yourself…”// Donna Cannone 

May 27th 2022 will see the release of the band’s debut album via Despotz Records. It’s ten tracks of hook-laden songs, bristling with a punk attitude and a keen ear for melodic rock ‘n’ roll. There will be a third single in the shape of ‘Is It True‘, before the band head out on tour with a string of live appearances booked across Europe.
