    Dane Estok

    Singer-Songwriter

    Dane Estok is a singer-songwriter with a lush music sound that’s pleasing to the ears and soothes the senses.

    However, Dane Estok’s life has not exactly been pleasant. ‘My childhood was chaos,’ Dane says. His parents married and divorced each other – twice. His sister died of a heroin overdose while he was in the Army Reserve. Throughout his young life, he peripherally experienced addictions and

     mental health issues. ‘I’m still not sure how I turned out okay’. But Dane these days is more than okay – he’s actually making a life and name for himself. He’s currently married to his beautiful wife who never fails to encourage him to do what he loves. ‘And so here I am – in one-piece – writing and singing’.

    Dane Estok is from Nashville, Tennessee, a hotbed of music and talent so it’s no wonder that it produced someone like him. In his freshman year of high school, a friend introduced him to Weezer’s the ‘Blue Album’ and he fell in love with front man Rivers Cuomo’s style and songwriting. When he saw an up-and-coming band called Fall Out Boy, Dane was enthralled by lead singer Patrick Stump’s vocals. ‘The fact that he sometimes can sound like a big black woman adds icing to the cake’, he says. Dane’s very specific with the sound he would like to create. He even describes it as music ‘that can make you dance like a little girl but can make you think like an academic during finals week’. How interesting. His track ‘Semiautomatic Kind of Love’ is a catchy ditty that ‘has the imagery of love shooting out like a spray of bullets’. For this is what Dane Estok wants – sharing what he knows and loves in the form of good music that’s fresh, optimistic, and even sentimental.

    To date, Dane Estok has a seven-track EP filled with songs about love and frustration, available for download at iTunes distributed by JMD Records and INgrooves, a partner of Universal Music Group.

    On Shannon Labrie’s debut album Just Be Honest, she kicks off the proceedings by staring down her demons and admonishing her biggest fears with “Secret,” a retro-R&B influenced song laced with vibrant horns. The young songwriter comes by her fears more honestly than most, battling a serious (and ongoing) illness at age 9 and losing her father at 14. She grew up fast, at first rebelling, then spending several years on a curious solo journey across the country studying philosophy, theology and writing songs. Now in Nashville, she’s readying her 12-song February 5, 2013 release with plenty of industry buzz, receiving compliments from The Lefsetz Letter, M: Music and Musicians, Kings of A&R and more.

     

    Adept on the piano and guitar, the singer/songwriter says she was “raised on James Taylor and Lauren Hill. Music Connection has named her as one of the “Best Unsigned Artists of 2012,” and Labrie will be part of the iTunes Nashville Indie Spotlight including Brooke Waggoner, Matthew Perryman Jones, Katie Herzig and Mindy Smith.”

     

    Perhaps the song that has gotten the most attention is “I Remember A Boy,” backed by soulful guitar tones that hint at Daniel Lanois. “…This track affected me. Made me believe like the great singer-songwriters of yore, maybe this woman has something to say. That in this crazy, mixed-up, shook-up world she can illuminate her story and people can relate.” Bob Lefsetz, The Lefsetz Letter

     

    The title track is a lush and rich plea that would fit alongside a playlist that includes Carol King and Norah Jones. “Gettin’ Tired” showcases her penchant for jazz, a gift from her father who, “played original, complicated and beautiful songs regardless of the fact that he was never professionally trained,” she shares. In “Heartache of Love” Shannon showcases not only her talent on piano but also reveals her more intimate side, reveling in the feelings of love and loss.

     

    Despite many of Labrie's hardships, she has managed to find the good side in her infectious song “Love Somebody.” “When I am in my darkest moments of loss, doubt and pain, I am shown what it looks like to love someone and to be loved. My closest friends didn't run, didn't give up, and didn't let me sink. They stuck with me and brought me to the other side. I can only hope to bring that same message to anyone.”

     

    Labrie’s original song, “You Found Me,” was recorded exclusively as a pivotal song in the movie (and on the soundtrack) for the major motion picture “Make Your Move” out Sept of 2013. She is now  out touring to promote “Just be Honest” which released Feb 5, featuring dates at LA’s The Hotel Cafe, Rockwood Music Hall, SXSW Week and performing at the annual NON-COMMvention in May.


    “Thick guitar tones, a rich voice and sophisticated song craft are just the beginning for this artist, who won us over with her warm, fully realized recordings…strong vocals in every area and an appealing Grace Potter essence. It’s the song ‘I Remember A Boy’ that kills…devastating and beautiful.” Music Connection
