"Wide Outside"
Daniel Cartier

Review by: Len

     Opening track "1981" is a warm, reflective welcome to a myriad of styles and strong talent. Daniel Cartier's "Wide Open" is appropriately named as the experience is just that wide open. An artist's introduction which offers a broad scope into interests, technique and ability. Consistently meeting the challenges Cartier sets up for himself the listener is fulfilled and more than satisfied. 

     Fifteen tracks strong, the progression takes you deeper into that mystique which one reviewer referred to as "Generation X ennui with the sweetest tenor we've heard in a while." The New Yorker 

     Admittedly there is a laid back feel to some of Daniel's music. However intensity is also a much need description. Influences are varied and seem to include Jim Croce, Harry Chapin, Sonic Youth, early Aerosmith, and even a little Pink Floyd. Of course it could just be that Cartier's music sets the imagination flowing, which is also true. Daniel brings all these elements into play masterfully and with flow and intrigue. Interchanging and mixing delivery with unique flair and imaginative lyrics.

     Cartier is catchy if not haunting in several cases. An excellent collection of home studio recording done with professional flair.  The attitude exemplified in Daniel's tenor vocals reaches a strong blend of emotions. Tracks; three "la cienega", and eight, "Beautiful" are but two examples of Cartier's ability to plant a song which tickles the memory. The diversity of material combined with Daniel's vocal abilities makes for a great listen and collection addition. Find out more about Daniel, his music and how to get your CD at his website.
