"Review of Wonderland CD (2007)"

If you've been paying attention to the Vancouver music scene no doubt you already associate the March Hare band with electrifying stage performances that consistently deliver the wow factor time and time again. Well earned praise to be sure but this group goes a lot deeper and for the moment they've set aside the songbook to give us a sample of their equally impressive creative energy with the release of an inspired, new CD aptly titled Wonderland.





Grabbing your attention has become a trademark for this versatile quartet and "Inside Your Head" gets the job done with Kimberly Baskerville's searing, vocal punch leading off a strong collection thoroughly dominated by throaty, lyrically rich tunes.



The writing team of Hare and Baskerville do not disappoint as the album smoothly maneuvers its way through a variety of genres. For lovers of choppy guitar licks they offer "Beautiful Hero", "On The Run", "Dig A Little Deeper" and the funky rocker "She Moves Me". Each one produces a mastery of flair and style while holding onto the guts and soul essential to resonate with any salty, rock addict.



Some of the best charts simply defy category such as "Wonderland" which catches your attention in how it manages to capture the diversity and character of their live shows or "Whoop It Up" which generates a sound both conventional and different at the same time, delivering a unique blend of beat, spirit and insane creativity.



The true delight of this album can be embraced in its softer side. "What Have I Been Missing", "Find My Way Home", "Flowers" and the beautiful "In My Dreams" have been so lovingly constructed as to allow you to connect with each message on a new and unexpected plane with every listen.



"Wonderland" is guaranteed to leave you exhausted and satisfied yet still yearning and even curious about what's next for March Hare. If you've only heard them in concert then you owe it to yourself to get your hands on one of the coolest CDs to come out of the West Coast in a long time. Call your local radio station and insist they play it. Why not let everyone in on the fun? - The Scene is Alive - Mike Boone

"Heart, soul, fun and frenzied - Wonderland Review"

With energized vocal harmonies from Kimmy-Kat Baskerville and Dan Hare, accompanied by tight rhythmic beats of drummer Ian Paxton and sweet keyboard sounds of Keyboardist Andy Smyth, the veteran stage musicians March Hare make Wonderland an inviting soundscape to visit.

The album’s title track “Wonderland” is a celebration of the stage as life’s playground. “There are a lot of bells and whistles going on in this ska/soul number,” boasts Baskerville.

“Kim's megaphone part and her playful lyrics really capture the fun of performing,” says Hare. “The song’s riddled with Andy's signature synth lines and farfisa sound coupled with Ian's diverse drumming style.”

March Hare’s founder, Dan, and co-frontperson Kimmy Kat Baskerville spent a year in the studio creating the genre-juggling Wonderland, and the resulting CD is a trip unto itself.

“During the writing and recording process emotions ran the full gamut from elation to frustration and everywhere in between, so there's lots of soul on the album,” says Hare.

With several tracks sure to be frequent plays on mp3 players everywhere, Wonderland, the follow-up album to 2005’s Running in a Dream, is a place where you can “Whoop it up!” with dancehall retro-funk, groove to the soulful R&B flavorings of “Dig a little Deeper,” or rock-out to catchy, radio friendly tunes like “On the Run” and “Inside your Head.”

“Find My Way Home,” one of the standout tracks, demonstrates the chameleon-like versatility of the band. Sweetly sung by Kimmy-Kat and accompanied with piano and guitar that’s somehow simultaneously melancholy and uplifting.

“Everyone gets lost,” says Baskerville of the track. “It’s about finding your way back or never looking over your shoulder, going forward, searching for a new path.”

For all of its obvious pop music traits, Wonderland is bursting with fresh melody, driving beats, and memorable hooks which distinguish it from typical top-40 fodder.
