"Christopher Dallman - No Sense in Regret Feat. Chantae Miller"

The pensive progressions may be gentle, but the emotional intensity definitely isn’t.

The chillingly candid lyrical introspection offers plenty of resonance as you listen to sentiments which are rarely ever spoken. The verses run through the kind of eerie mind funk which reverberates around your mind while you’re in a state of melancholic reflection.

The haunting soundscape fuses elements of darkwave synth-pop with contemporary yet cinematic Indie, making No Sense in Regret as authentic as it is evocative. Debut singles don’t get much more promising than this.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out No Sense in Regret which is due for release on May 1st. In the meantime, you can get a taste of what’s to come by watching the teaser video via YouTube.

"RACE THE LIGHT reviewed by Ken Mowery"

By Ken Mowery

Christopher Dallman’s debut CD is an entertainingly literary pilgrimage into the inner sanctum of the songwriter’s psyche. If good songwriting confronts listeners with truth about themselves, their emotions, and their world from a fresh point of view, then the songs on Race The Light represent songwriting at its best. Dallman’s lyrics speak of thoughts and emotions that are common to most of us, but what is uncommon is the ability to express these things in an understandable and yet profound way.

However, make no mistake about it, the literary merits of Race The Light do not over shadow its musicality. There are peak musical performances on this well produced recording. Dallman’s vocals are striking, if not stunning, demonstrating an appealing flexibility of inflection and pitch. It is a style that blends admirably with his skillful acoustic guitar work. The end result is music you can listen to and enjoy in just about any venue and mood.

It is difficult to isolate a best song from the eleven offered on this CD because they are all strong and well written. The first cut, “Motel Room,” certainly has to place high on the list of best songs. This song opens the CD with a moving story line and an engagingly bluesy groove. The second song, “This Is Calm,” should also top the list of bests. It provides a nice resolve to the angst of the first track. Another favorite is the hauntingly cool and beautiful song, “Nighttime In The City."

Listeners will find much to relate to and enjoy on Race The Light and will no doubt agree that it is a worthy and welcome addition to their CD collections. -

"Indie Artist Showcase"

The final rating: ****

Folkster Christopher Dallman sings with the conviction of an inmate given one last appeal, in the form of a song. His percussive flattop rhythms and soul-bearing lyrics would make Ani DiFranco proud.

"RACE THE LIGHT by Jackie Hayden"

One man heading this way from the Milwaukee, USA courtesy of Unearthed Productions is 26-year-old singer -songwriter Christopher Dallman. ‘Mistake’ has the benefit of some snappy band playing in a stop-start style and fine harmonies in a hard-driving tuneful song. ‘This Is Calm’ is appropriately more relaxed, with a touch of sixties introspective folk-rock about it, violin and all, and a convincingly passionate vocal delivery from Dallman. ‘Over My Head’ is a deliciously laid-back reflection on lethargy and fear. Dallman is a fine tunesmith and his guitar-playing pulls no punches either. His distinct vocal style has touches of the lightness of a James Taylor or a David Gray. He is an assured performer who should find a ready audience for his intelligent and lyrical output around Europe. - Hotpress Magazine
