Today Dallas Smith‘s new CD “Lifted” was released, I may have had a little sneak peek. The first thing to note is that all of the Tippin’ Point EP tracks are here. In addition there are plenty of new tunes for you to enjoy. I’ve been listening to it non-stop and I have some new favourites but before I share those with you, let’s talk about the album. It’s got a very positive feel. Happy, upbeat. It’s a breath of fresh air. There are a couple of slower numbers but they still stay positive.
Tonight’s performance at Boots and Bourbon in Toronto was an acoustic show but that didn’t mean it wasn’t full of energy, it was. Dallas arrived, engaged the audience, sang, chatted and smiled. We were treated to nine songs, most from the new CD “Lifted” but he threw in a few from “Jumped Right In”. When the set was over, Dallas spent plenty of time taking pictures with fans.
By the way, my new favourites, in order, Thinkin’ ‘Bout You, A Girl Like You and Wastin’ Gas. If you’re a fan of Dallas Smith, a fan of Default or just a fan of good music, you should go buy this album.
Thanks to Charlotte from Red Umbrella PR for making tonight happen. Keep an eye out for Joshua’s upcoming interview with Dallas on thereviewsarein.com.
