"Hats off to the Dinallos!"

“I loved working with Michael Dinallo on the wonderful Charlie Rich tribute record, Feel Like Going Home: The Songs of Charlie Rich. Singing with Juliet on ‘Purgatory Road’ was the same - I'm glad to be part of real, honest heartfelt music. Hats off to The Dinallos!” - Will Kimbrough


"Review of Michael's "Crooked Road Songs""

"The only question is why has it taken multi-talented Michael Dinallo 30 years to finally come out with a debut? Crooked Road Songs is, in a word, spectacular. Dinallo’s originals reek of late-night honky-tonk floozies and bare-bones front-porch Appalachia. The man knows how to put a record together. He’s done so producing Eddie Floyd on Stax and the Charlie Rich tribute album last year, both projects brimming with ideas, alacrity and total joyousness. Rock on, dude. I’m a fan." - Mike Greenblatt - Goldmine


"Juliet Simmons-Dinallo "Dream Girl""

"Juliet Simmons Dinallo draws on a variety of influences - Shelby Lynne, Dusty Springfield and Emmylou Harris all play out among them - but given her sweet caress and compelling stance, it's all but impossible to think of anyone other than Dinallo herself when listening to this utterly alluring album. In short, consider this an album for the ages.” - Lee Zimmerman - Country Standard Time


"Memo To Ken Burns - The Dinallos"

Do you have a minute? Say hello to Juliet Simmons Dinallo and her husband, Michael Dinallo. The Dinallos. We know you’re a busy man, sure, but go ahead. Say hello.

Juliet and Michael are residents of good old 37206, the East Nashville zip code where you spent a bunch of time in the last few years. That’s right. They’re walking the streets by the Ryman, listening to the music coming out the doors on lower Broadway, heading for gigs here and there, plugging into the studios and cranking out their own sound. Living the dream.

Juliet, she’s the red-headed one with the voice just about as pure as tap water from heaven. Michael, he’s the one with the guitar and that 1958 Brylcreem haircut, looks like he just came from a recording session with Elvis and the Jordanaires. They’re doing that Nashville couple thing, you know, holding that treasure map, trying to follow the footsteps of Johnny and June, George and Tammy, Guy and Susanna. Maybe without a bunch of the drama.

They have a new album coming out in early 2021, Juliet and Michael, called The Dinallos. The sound is a mix of country and soul, a lot of 37206 put together with a good dose of 38103, which is Beale Street, Memphis, TN.

Take a listen. This is all the stuff you were talking about in the 16-hour PBS series, Country Music. Isn’t it? Roots. Americana. Did we mention how much we liked the series? There might have been some omissions here and there, sure, can’t please everybody, but you carved out the heart of the subject and put it on the kitchen table for everyone to see.

Take a listen. The heart’s still beating. Juliet Simmons Dinallo and Michael Dinallo. That’s their 10-year-old daughter, Annabel, who’s with them. The one with the leather jacket and the touch of blue in her hair. She’s singing, too. Following the footsteps of Brenda Lee. Yes, she is.

Take a listen. The Dinallos. Maybe you’ll want to do that sequel…. - Leigh Montville

Bio

Juliet and Michael are residents of good old 37206, the East Nashville zip code where you spent a bunch of time in the last few years. That’s right. They’re walking the streets by the Ryman, listening to the music coming out the doors on lower Broadway, heading for gigs here and there, plugging into the studios and cranking out their own sound. Living the dream.

Juliet, she’s the red-headed one with the voice just about as pure as tap water from heaven. Michael, he’s the one with the guitar and that 1958 Brylcreem haircut, looks like he just came from a recording session with Elvis and the Jordanaires. They’re doing that Nashville couple thing, you know, holding that treasure map, trying to follow the footsteps of Johnny and June, George and Tammy, Guy and Susanna. Maybe without a bunch of the drama.

They have a song out now, Juliet and Michael, called ‘You Got Nothing On Me.’ Take a listen. Three minutes and 13 seconds out of your life. Michael’s on the guitar and that’s the McCrary Sisters doing background harmonies and Tom Hambridge on the drums and Dave Roe on bass and Brother Cleve, himself, on the B3 organ. The sound is a mix of country and soul, a lot of 37206 put together with a good dose of 38103, which is Beale Street, Memphis, TN.

Take a listen. This is all the stuff you were talking about in the 16-hour PBS series, Country Music.  Isn’t it? Roots. Americana. Did we mention how much we liked the series?
