MP3 Dan Pelletier - Wild Heart Rodeo
Folk - Singer/Songwriter
12 MP3 Songs
FOLK: Modern Folk, FOLK: Folk Pop
Picking up where his debut album, "Mr. Sunshine", left off, Dan continues to write songs that hold a mirror up to the emotions of real life in an enormously entertaining manner. Whether it''s a humorous take on the "material fallout" of splitting up ("You & Me, Cat"), a wry look at true love & the magic of tipsy Christmas ("Christmas Eve, Lakeside Topless Revue"), or the souless way the computer age reflects our personal lives ("Credit Report"), Dan taps into the heart of a situation and sets it to music in a way that hangs on and doesn''t let go. The next best thing to seeing him perform live, this CD includes the award-winning spoken poem (a la "Casey At The Bat") entitled "Baddest Of All (Love Conquers)".
