Album Notes
"D’Haene is a good band, on their own terms. With very soulful lyrics, and a delivery to match, and a full jazzy sound, you really fall in to their sound. The music shows influences from as far and wide as the 70s rock, jazz and even giving some quick nods to the sound of the islands, its plain out fun music.
....(with some of the sickest breakdowns I’ve heard in a long time)..... D’Haene has a solid sound unlike anything I’ve heard in a long time.

Sounds like a great Rock Hit to me. Very well done!"

Liner Notes From Alaska

Saw these guys at the Cutting Room a while back. Got on their mailing list & got the heads up on their 1st release. They avoid trendiness in a good way. If Bobby Darrin fronted a hard rock 70's band, it might sound like D'Heane. In other words, original. Evidence of Funk & Swing can be found behind all the sonic propulsion. Despite some epic shredding, there's a sincerity & a heart behind it all that betrays any sort of swagger. The title track, deftly nods to Billy Joel's New York State Of Mind with just the right hint of sarcasm. Refreshingly & knowlingly out of step with today's generic tattoo Rawk.


I've listened to nothing else since I got this! It's refreshing to hear rock music that is unpredictably catchy, thoughtful and provocative, and NOT pretentious and cheesy. D'haene's music is brilliantly composed--without formula! There's obviously an array of influences upon these cats because the music is VERY GOOD!! Do yourself a favor and buy this CD!

Just like the good 'ol days
I grew up with these guys and they have always made great music. I am so glad I got this cd. It reminds me of the jam sessions back when. This is the best music and what we grew up rockin' to!

Cock of the Walk
D’Haene, as you know, means cock. (Seriously. Look it up.) But fear not kitty kats - the album, Brother man, is not just cock rock. Don’t let the lead track fool you, cause D’Haene came here to mess around with ALL your emotions. They start out with words both sweet and hot to get you bothered (Somebody Loves Me) and move on to some playful push and pull to get things swinging (MBDSR). Then, on the sly, they mingle tenderness (Brother Man), sliiiide in to produce a flood of tears (Subtle), urge a primal scream (Crazy), and make a final plaintive cry to “circle back or follow through”. Take note kitty kats, this really is the sound of rock n roll - and I for one am very satisfied.


True rock
It is hard, today, to find true rock 'n' roll. Musicians have either been too influenced by pop melodies or try too hard to prove that they are "real" rockers, and lose sight of the music. Bob D'Haene falls into neither category. Instead, he concentrates on, well, the music. And succeeds.


Pure rock and roll with a twist of kick ass
D'Haene's first offering, BROTHER MAN, is 10 solid cuts of kick ass rock and roll. In an age of manufactured bands, pop, and an overindulgence of hip-hop/R&B, it's refreshing to see a band come forth with an album that is soulful, melodic, arresting, unpretentious and fun. When listening, you can hear influences of great rock bands past, but when it comes time to pin down one, you realize D'Haene's sound is far too unique to be pigeon-holed. Bob's lyrics come from the heart and still have a sense of play, never forgetting his rock and roll roots. His voice turns from smooth and mellow to a soaring, soul-wrenching wail, reminiscent of rock's best leading front men. The music is tight, with some great licks by Riley MacMahon (lead guitar), and Tim McCraken (keyboards, vocals) and some additional beautiful vocals from Nicole Bradin. Each cut has something different to offer-- a rarity in the music world where bands usually figure out one cool sound and then repeat it 10 times. BROTHER MAN is an album worth listening to over and over-- each track getting better the next time around. Buy this album now! You won't be disappointed.


Buy this album. It will make you feel good in the nether regions.

The Claw

Soft and introspective. Hard and Funky. Something for everyone.
Lyrics are introspective and heart-felt. Love that funky guitar that runs thru most of the cd. This thing ROCKS as well! The band and the production are tight. I can't get away from it.....D'Haene's voice on some of the more rock'in songs sounds just like.....Paul Stanley! A lived in voice born of 70's Rock, booze, late nights and cigarettes....and that falsetto....I'll say it, it makes me moist and I'm a dude.

Kurt Elftmann - NYC

Classic rock wrought from pure metal.
A tight knit sound born of plenty of live performance and some well used time in the recording studio are two hallmarks of "brother man", the first album from D'Haene. As a songwriter, founder Bob D'Haene (vocals, rhythm & lead guitars)mixes part poet, part hard drinking and screwing rocker with a childhood lived to the music of the seventies and eighties in songs that, whether ballad or driving classic rock, are intelligent and full of soul. Backing D'Haene on the album and bringing to his lyrics the weight they deserve are Tim McCracken (keyboards) and Nicole Bradin, whose contributions on Feelin' Human, Crazy and Circle make her an indispensable asset to the bands sound. Additionally, Rick Guetschow (bass) and Sammy K (drums and precussion), childhood friends of D'Haene and each long-time rockers in their own right, bring a strength and power to this album that reminds you that many other bands leave these key positions overlooked and undermanned. Finally, Riley McMahon (lead and Rhythm guitars, lap steel) must be credited in large part for the strong, distinct sound which fills this album. He not only produced "bother man", but engineered the recording of the bulk of the tracks, in addition to playing a wicked lead guitar, which along with that of Bob D'Haene, keep this album driving forward. If you're looking for nostalgia rock or bubble gum, look elsewhere, please. This album wants serious rock fans, and with enough word of mouth, it can't help but find them.

Unadulterated Rock N Roll
I love this album! I’ve listened to it over and over for a couple days now, and I’m not even close to getting tired of it. Screaming guitars, pounding drums, rampant vocals – Yes! Finally. Thank you, D’Haene. But the real kicker is the lyrics. Wow. It’s rare for rockers to be so damned smart and intimate and still ROCK. This stuff does what music is supposed to do. It reaches down your throat and rips your heart out – and it feels so good. Can’t wait to hear more.
