After a technology-postponed one-week delay, Up Front And On Fire returns not only right out of the starting gate, but making a bit of a left-field turn by featuring NEPA-born aspiring country artist Dani-Elle Kleha (who goes solely by her first name professionally).
Positing herself as “90’s country with a modern flair” – in other words, much closer to Terri Clark than to more recent sensations like Maren Morris and Kelsea Ballerini – the long-player on review here, 2012’s Dream Big, vaults between modern country and occasional traditional-sounding spots throughout the album’s ten tracks. There’s also seemingly unusual covers of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Belevin’”, John Fogerty’s “Bad Moon Rising”, and Aerosmith’s “Living On The Edge”. Watch Dani-Elle’s Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/danisings/, for a special announcement planned for this week.
