One of the Big
Apples best-kept secrets may be starting to lose its clandestine status.
On their latest CD, Nature, the eclectic jazz-pop trio, Daves True Story,
finds itself poised to reap the benefits of a DIY career with a penchant for
going against the grain.
inventive, distinct style of fusing retro jazz overtones with quirky pop polish
has garnered critical praise and helped sell more than 50,000 CDs, an impressive
feat for any act not affiliated with the corporate music machine. At the heart
of their sound is vocalist Kelly Flints sultry voice kissing sensual life
into the occasionally risqué songs of guitarist/writer Dave Cantor.
With satirical sonnets and biting irony, Daves True Story has gradually
come to the forefront of New Yorks musical landscape. Tracks such as World
in Which We Live and I Lost My Nature display irreverent,
witty narratives over cleverly infectious beats.
Having already placed a song in the feature film, Kissing Jessica Stein, it
appears Daves True Story could soon be the next big buzz.
