#101 – Trent Dabbs
Earlier i was always in love with specific tracks instead of all of their productions, but i find myself falling in love with certain musicians and whole albums. Trent Dabbs made me realize that i like an artists sound, or not. I have a couple of Moleskine’s lying around filled with scribbles & notes of music that i have to look up. Usually when i’m watching movies or TV-shows, and i hear something in the background i’ll write that down.
So today i was going through all my notes, looked up all the tracks, and the funniest thing happened! I had written down a shitload of tracks, but from different shows like One Tree Hill, The Vampire Diaries, Private Practice, Grey’s Anatomy and even Pretty Little Liars and apparently a lot of them came all from ONE artist… and that’s Trent Dabbs. How much more love can you get from ABC and the CW network!? Great promotion for him, but he deserves it, so i’ll just follow their lead…
He has co-written a lot of succesful tracks for Michelle Featherstone, Katie Herzig and my other love Matthew Perryman Jones. Although he has a lot of his own songs i would love to feature here – and i probably will while reviewing his whole album later on – i could only choose one, and that’s ‘Leave to See’. If you like The Fray, Augustana, Joshua Radin or John Mayer you’ll like this american singer-songwriter as well.
FunFact: On YouTube there is a video-contest going on for this track, so if you’re going to play this track over and over again you might as well enjoy it with random videoclip-versions.
