Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Back in the 1980s, Jon Dee Graham was a member of the legendary Texas roots-rockers True Believers, a nom de plume that turns out to have been a perfect fit. Graham's sophomore release, Summerland, is a rousing 12-song collection of passionate rock & roll that looks a dangerous world square in the face yet still finds reasons to believe. Graham applies his scratchy growl to literate story songs reminiscent of those by Freedy Johnston, say, or Fred Eaglesmith, but unlike those peers, he isn't afraid to surround voice and song with the kind of dramatic and smoldering electric guitars that turn his singer-songwriter moves into grand rock gestures. It's the force of those guitars that lets Graham wade grimly through the "red meat and wreckage" on "Black Box" and still want to "Look Up" at "lightning in the clouds" to embrace this "Big Sweet Life," no matter how scary and unpredictable it becomes. --David Cantwell

After having the pleasure of seeing Jon Dee Graham perform live (which was a treat in itself!), I purchased this CD. It now lives in my CD player. The songs are beautiful and earthy, sometimes funny and sometimes mysterious but always real. Mr. Graham's voice conveys these songs in a heartfelt rumble. Buy this CD!

Although legendary in his hometown of Austin, Texas, Graham is not nearly as well known as he should be elsewhere. This may not be his best album, but it is a good introduction to his music. Try also his his newest, "It's Not As Bad As It Looks", "Full" and a collection of his songs performed by other Austin artists entitled "Big Sweet Life". But catch him live if you can. When not touring, he plays every Wednesday night at the Continental Club in Austin, Texas.
