Album Notes
the dambrots "especially not love" (the magenta album)

the dambrots are the magical collaboration of dawn marie, soulful vocalist and percussionist; and al james, candid lyricist and gifted acoustic guitarist. the dambrots combine folk influences with a modern-day sensibility to create a distinct Acoustic Pop sound.

The dambrots debut CD, "especially not love" takes listeners on a journey filled with raw emotion, pointed lyrics, and intimate songs about life, love, loss and longing.

The songs range from the unbridled emotion of "not quite," to the harsh realism of "all that heaven allows," to the more encouraging and inspirational "catching up with yourself."

the dambrots "especially not love" delivers a thought-provoking and captivating dose of reality.

"especially not love" is the first album, the magenta album, in a series of eight albums that the dambrots will record. Each consecutive album will take the color of the next letter in the dambrots logo. In December 2003, the dambrots released their second album "how to fall in love in 20 minutes", which took the color red.

From Muzine Magazine, June 2003 issue:
"One of the most impressive acoustic CDs in recent years, the dambrots' debut CD 'especially not love' marks them as a band to watch. Bravely keeping the music stripped to the bare bones (most songs feature only acoustic guitar and vocals, with occasional organ and percussion), the band is confident to let the strength of the songwriting, and the stirring haunting vocals carry the songs. That confidence is justified. What makes the CD so remarkable is how diverse and full the duo is able to make the songs sound with such sparse arrangements."

Great songs for the broken hearted!
When you find yourself deep in the depths of heartache from a breakup, find a band such as the dambrots with albums like "especially not love" and "how to fall in love in 20 minutes," to remind yourself that are not alone with your pain.

Mike Rowen

Excellent debut CD
This is a very great acoustic rock CD. The songwriting is very strong, especially the lyrics. There is interesting acoustic guitar playing throughout the CD. The vocals are amazing. The singer has one of the best new voices I've heard in a long time.

Karen Neal

Simply Amazing!
This CD is simply amazing. The haunting and seductive vocals, the unique sound of the acoustic guitars, not to mention the personal and telling lyrics, make this CD a must have.
