The Artist I recently checked out the latest CD from Singer/Songwriter Charlie Dane entitled Dreamland.  Dane hails from Oyster Bay, NY. 


The band Dance and her band clearly possess above average playing abilities and elite songwriting skills. Timing is spot on within the genera. dance can definitely hold her own on the guitar, but more importantly she just let's it all hang out vocally - holding nothing back. Vocals from Dane are executed flawlessly and in many ways the strongpoint part of this production. The music possesses a classic Bluesy, Rock, Pop, Folk-ish type stigma that is just a whole lot of fun. All in all great music to eat a Sunday morning brunch to. Definitely classic Americana-Pop feel that that is timeless, externally likeable and very emotional. Music will remind you of classic Cheryl Crowe, Janis Joplin, and Melissa Etheridge. The songs present many feel good grooves that re extremely catchy and very marketable in scope. The vibe Overall very upbeat, positive, with amazing vibe. I get the impression she is having allot of fun with it - and it shows. The production is professional grade from start to finish. Has a timeless feel to it. which is not an easy thing to achieve. Overall this CD is very marketable, upbeat and sucks you in right away. The good Simply put - all songs are fun and will lift your spirits. Thereís nothing like a fun spirited musical production to get wrapped around, and this is one of them. Honorable mentions go out to the amazing "good vibe" you get from Dane. Like a drug this CD pulls you in and when it's over you want to do it all over again. The CD brightened my day and told me to lighten up a little.  I kept waiting for a weak song to come down the pike, I eventually gave up on that. In fact the songs kept coming - this production comes fully loaded. Overall very upbeat, positive, with amazing stories that possess incredible highs. The CD has itís share of happy moments. Simply put  - very much like life itself this CD personifies the positives in a life experience, with music that are 100% honest, pure and a blast to listen to. Folks out there who enjoy all the above mentioned bands will fall head over heals over Charlie Dane. The bad Nothing to report. The ugly Nothing to report. 


The verdict Dreamland by Chalice Dane is a solid freshmen statement. Let me go on record and say this is a grand slam of a release and Dane is one of the best artists I've seen in quite some time. The best part of this CD is her vocals, feel good groove and catchy songwriting. The Bottom Line This CD proves Charlie Dane is like a diamond in the rough - over time with a little work she should shine with incredible brilliance for all the world to see and hear.
