Everyone Is Someone (Compass Records 745482, 2010)
Canadian duo Dala is releasing Everyone Is Someone in the United States this month. Everyone Is Someone is one of the most impressive folk music albums in recent months. Amanda Walther (soprano) and Sheila Carabine (alto) are the musicians behind Dala (the duo’s name was formed by combining the two last letters of each artist’s name).
The two talented singer-songwriters and instrumentalists compose memorable songs with lovely ethereal vocals and beautifully crafted harmonies and arrangements. Stylistically, Dala combines radio friendly contemporary folk with pop, rock, country and blues elements.
Everyone Is Someone includes several musical gems that deserve to be crossover hits, including the sweet ‘Levi Blues’ which comes in two versions, and the songs ‘Horses,’ ‘Compass’ and ‘Younger.’
Everyone Is Someone was released in June of 2009 in Canada and will be released this month in the United States. The rest of the discography includes This Moment Is a Flash (Big Bold Sun Music, 2005), Angels & Thieves (Universal Music, 2005), Who Do You Think You Are (Universal Music, 2007), Girls From the North Country (2010).
Everyone Is Someone is an extraordinary album by the rising stars of the North American neofolk scene.
