"Album Review"


“DANE SHARP always dreamed of performing on a world stage; only his Holy Grail was on Wembley Stadium playing soccer (OK, 'football' to you mad fanatics). A career-ending knee injury has forced a change of venue. Dane's eyes are now on the The Grand Ol' Opry stage. He has just released his debut CD Nothing To Lose. Dane has written, or co-written all but one of the tracks. His songs deal with new challenges and the courage to face them. The title track, and first single Nothing To Lose is a song about never looking back. The Great Australian Way is an upbeat track reminding us that what we are seeking may just be what we already have. Dane pays homage to his wife Jacqui with the sweet My Best Friend. Alone in the RSL honours our Diggers. With well crafted songs and honest delivery, Dane Sharp is a name to remember.” Deborah Minter, Capital News

Bio

A former professional soccer player, Dane Sharp’s knee was shattered along with his dreams. However, in a life changing moment, a friend gave him an old guitar for comfort and he was soon busking and playing backyard parties.

From there it was a natural progression to open mic nights, restaurants then bars and touring trips out west, also playing in a duo “Country Bound” honing his Country rhythms.

In January 2006, Dane played a series of shows in Nashville and worked with some of country music’s leading songwriters and musicians, such as Luann Reid (Kenny Chesney) and Brett Manning (Keith Urban).

Signed to independent label, Touchwood Productions, Dane has just finished working with award-winning producer Duncan Wood on his debut album, Nothing to Lose. The title track was released on NFS 111 and the second single “Blue Skies” is out now on NFS 118.

A gifted singer/songwriter, Dane recently performed at the Urban Country Music Festival in Caboolture on Centre Stage, the Next Generation Station and Songwriters Café, as well as the Queensland Music Festival’s Lift Every Voice and will soon be doing a series of shows and tours with label-mate, Caroline Taylor-Knight

Dane’s debut album Nothing to Lose is now available to order in all good music stores across Australia and to download via iTunes. Dane’s first two video clips (‘Nothing to Lose’ and ‘Alone in the RSL’), also produced by the Touchwood label, are currently airing on CMC (Country Music Channel). The sky is the limit for this exciting new talent.
