CD: LILY DeTAEYE – Nothing To Say


Nothing To Say

Nothing To Say – Scout – Cantare Eternamente – The One I Knew – In Your Arms – Faceless – Footie Pajamas


Lily DeTaeye is a 17-year old singer/songwriter from Des
Moines.  For someone whose musical likes seem to migrate to the tunes of
Jimmie Rodgers and Hank Williams, I’m probably not the best person to
be placed in a situation where I am listening to a very young girl
writing songs in Iowa.  But guess what?  This girl is actually writing
songs that make sense, songs that should be heard by a whole big bunch
of young people, and adults too.  She recorded her originals at the
Sonic Factory Studios in Des Moines. I heard a nice little harmonica on
the second song but the player is not named.  Will Locker is on drums;
Jon Locker is on bass; Jon Locker is on piano; Heath Allan is on
Saxophone, but I hear a few other neat instruments as well.  A ukulele
sounds super good on ‘Cantare Eternamente’ what I have no idea means,
but it sure is a nice presentation.  The ukulele pops up again several
times and sounds great.  Why, or perhaps ‘how’ am I familiar with this
kind of music?  My 18-year old daughter is a fan of the Disney Channel,
one of her favorite programs being ‘Austin & Ally’ so I’ve heard
this music before, and guess what, Lily is right where they are at in
production style, in writing style, in singing style, in presentation
style.  I love it, and I’m so glad we have a young lady in Iowa who can
produce original music so well.  Lily has already added some credentials
to her credit, and I hope she will continue to do that until she finds
her ‘road’ in music, because it surely will be there for her.  This
particular CD is not traditional country music, neither is it old-time,
but it’s done so very well, I’m going to forward it to the Rural Roots
Music Commission and let them tell me what the genre is and how we can
help Lily on her musical road.  “The One I Knew” is a super neat song. 
I’m so old it reminds me of Paul Anka’s work when he was just a young
guy.  That’s a compliment Lily, Anka turned out to be one of Canada’s
most prolific songwriter.  He even wrote Johnny Carson’s theme song on
the Tonight Show.  Keep up the good work, I will be watching you climb
the ladder.
