ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This singer/songwriter's music can be classifies as Folk & Western, or Americana. Outlaw Magazine says "Dasher's unique rolling baritone slides into the listener's soul and takes up residence. A dynamic, commanding and uninhibited performer, Dasher's star power lies in his ability to truly connect".

“Great Big Sky” takes you on a journey from start to finish, and covers a range of subjects from admiration of a country sky, to a soldier’s plight, and of course love. Dasher’s strong soothing barritone voice sincerely sings every lyric he wrote, and lures the listener into his world. While Dasher calls this album Folk Western, there are several influences felt depending upon what emotion Dasher is wanting to convey. “Soldier” could definitely be an Outlaw ballad sung by the likes of Merle Haggard, while “Sun” is reminiscent of a little Jimmy Buffet. “Great Big Sky” is what Country used to be and what Country needs to be again. - Dave Thorn (Memphis Radio)

"In our current world of boiler plate music so common today, it is refreshing to finally stumble on music written and recorded from a personal frame of reference and jam packed with sincerity, emotion, joy and pain. Daryl Wayne Dasher's new release, Great Big Sky, is just that." Billy Dew Dewberry (Dewberry Jam. AM 1670, San Antonio, TX)

A Treasure!
Listening to Great Big Sky has been one of the most enjoyable album experiences I’ve had in quite a while. The songs are fresh but grounded in the foundations of country and folk. Dasher’s first album, Long Road Now, was a rock solid tip-of-the-hat to the roots and legends of country music. He has built his second offering on those foundations but has grown from those roots and created something all his own. Great Big Sky is warmly familiar but subtly so. At the same time, it is excitingly new!

Dasher is a talented multi-instrumentalist and has a wide vocal range. His amazingly versatile voice is on fine display here...from the gentle “Again” to the world-weary “I’ve Tried (I’m Dry)” to the rousing “Mountains of Montana”. “Sun” is quite a surprise and a very pleasant one! “Leave the Rest Alone” speaks to our world today. It is as timely as the haunting “Soldier” is timeless. There are no throwaway songs here.

One of the many things that makes the Great Big Sky experience so enjoyable is Dasher’s obvious sincerity and joy. It is a lovingly crafted work and the heartfelt performances make every track a pleasure to listen to.

With evocative, deftly created lyrics, beautiful melodies and harmonies, and outstanding vocal and instrumental performances Great Big Sky is one of the most entertaining albums I’ve heard in a long time. I highly recommend it!

Sheer Brilliance
This young bloke is fabulous! He is a great individual from the limited exposure I have had to him through FaceBook and the like, so I purchased Great Big Sky and his other solo album. Now, Great Big Sky is just a stunning production all around, as far as I am concerned. Probably my favourite track is Mountains Of Montana, kind of a rollicking, soaring piece of music .... that just grabs you - even if you've never actually BEEN to Montana, you kind of end up wishing you had ... and end up there! I just love it to bits.

Next favourite would either be Soldier or Follow Me, or perhaps What Does It Mean or ... ohhhhhhhh hang it! The whole lot are fabulous.

The whole album has a real folk/country feel to it and I have to say that I am a big buyer of music and Dash's album right here is up amongst my top 10 favourite albums of all time - right alongside Waylon Jennings, John Cash, Brigitte London and co.

Am I a fan? You betcha! You couldn't HELP but be a fan of this bloke and his music! Gimme Dash any day compared to the crap I hear on the radio masquerading as country!

Really great country music
Great Big Sky is a really great album. Full of wonderful, moving lyrics and smooth vocals. This is country music with soul. All of the songs pull you in in their own way. Buy this album. :)
