Album Name: Count to Ten
Artist: Tina Dico
Year/Label: 2008 / Defend Music
Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
I’ve been listening to this record in my car for the last week and with each listen I enjoy it more. I know this is going to be one of my favorites this year.
Upon the first few listens, the song that grabbed me right away was Sacre Coeur. It’s a beautiful song written when she was in France.
Right now the song that keeps creeping into my brain (even when I am sleeping) is the title track, Count to Ten. The message being that sometimes you have to take a deep breath and step back a moment in order for the world to make sense. I love this song. It’s burned in my musical brain forever.
Tina Dico has one of those voices that just feels so comfortable to me. My ears really love it.
She’s also a great songwriter. I mean, really all these songs are pop masterpieces. There’s not a clunker on here. Any one of these songs would be a radio hit…the right station of course.
This is a fantastic pop-rock record and I hope it makes more people here in the US aware of this great talent.
