Dawn Botti's Powerful Voice and Amazing Holds Lead This Record

On Rise Above This, New Day Dawn offers hard, guitar-driven rock with a bit of a bluesy sound mixed in. It is commercially friendly, but it still represents one of the better hard rocking indie releases I've heard in some time. This album has a direct and assertive sound that accentuates the rock dynamics within it's arrangements and vocals.

Botti's vocals are exquisitely alluring. Her holds are pitch perfect and never overdone. Her abilities as a vocalist drive the band, and Runaway and You Are My Everything, the best songs on this release, are perfect examples. Botti leads the verse and chorus, projecting dreamy mists and sweet atmospherics while hitting her upper register perfectly, forcing the issue when called to, and relenting to the backing instrumentation when necessary. Lay Your Head shows a somewhat softer side while remaining positively electric on the chorus. Despite the presence of a more classic sounding composite, New Day Dawn manages to exude a refreshingly current feel to the music herein as well. Four of the songs on this five-song output could garner mainstream airplay and tremendous fan appeal, and Life Impossible, though not as strong as the other songs, is still a fine song despite a somewhat repetitive coda.

Though there is nothing innovative or groundbreaking on Rise Above This, New Day Dawn manages to exhibit extreme proficiency in their music. Too many bands try to reinvent the wheel. New Day Dawn simply improves the ride, using memorable guitar/vocal interplay and slight tempo shifts to capture the listener. And Dawn's holds are simply captivating. --- Michael Canter - Jivewired
