KELLY is unmistakably one of Dan’s songs. It has the same rugged charm of RAINBOW BLUES, but the two songs couldn’t be more different. Whereas Dan’s last single got you clapping and dancing along, KELLY is an emotionally charged song, which tells the story of losing a loved one.
Dan’s positive spin couldn’t help but leak into this track, but from the moment you hear the first chord, you can feel the nostalgic, sad tones. The happiness that you feel in the song eventually reveals itself as pure love for Kelly, whoever she may be.
Dan’s lyrics are clever and heartfelt, bringing the listener in to be a part of the conversation he is having with Kelly. Paired with the mellow tones of the acoustic guitar, piano and the softest of drums, this song captures the heart of anyone who listens to it.
This review is incredibly late in its delivery, as you can now order KELLY on iTunes. However, I couldn’t go without writing about this song. Daniel has done a great job, and I can’t wait to see what he produces next.
