Music

Press


It's been a while since we featured a singer/songwriter as CD of the Day, but Daniel Palmer's Home Sweet Home has broken the dry spell with 11 quality tunes that will appeal to fans of popsters such as Warren Zanes and David Mead, as well as fans of rootsier artists like Steve Earle and Jeff Tweedy.

Opener "Singing The Same Song" shows Palmer's pop side, and it reminds me of some of the better tracks off the last Don DiLego disc, which may not be concidental as DiLego is part of Palmer's backing band. "Sometimes", meanwhile, has more of an alt-country sound, but before you can pigeonhole it off the first minute or two, it explodes into a great singalong chorus and a swelling of horns. "Brand New" follows, with its staccato Beatlesque beat reminding me of "If You Could Stay" from Zanes' Memory Girls disc. Other highlights include the midtempo and very radio-friendly "Strong Baby, Strong" and "Silent Alarm", as well as the dreamy closer "Keeps Me Wondering". - Absolute Powerpop

Bio

I used to play a lot around Boston with different bands and in 2000 I recorded my first solo CD titled ALIEN LOVE SONGS. It took me 7 years to make another. HOME SWEET HOME was produced by Don DiLego and recorded at Velvet Elk Studios (in the heart of Velvet Elk City, Poconos PA).

My influences range from classic singer/songwriters: Neil Young, John Lennon, & Bob Dylan to more modern Alt. Country favorites like Ryan Adams and Wilco. I play blues harmonica and listen to a lot of indie music. Lately I've been getting into spoken word and alternative hip-hop. I haven't incorporated those sounds into my style. Yet.

In addition to writing and recording music I also write thriller novels. My short story, DISFIGURED appeared in the James Patterson anthology THRILLER: STORIES TO KEEP YOU UP AT NIGHT. When I get a free moment I'm working on my debut novel currently titled THE DIVIDED.
