Ben Krahne is a modern country music singer/songwriter from California, USA. His first CD, entitled "Back To The Country" was produced in 1998 and was very well received in the European market. This, his second CD, "Dare To Believe", is an eclectic mix of eleven ballads and upbeat songs. Ten of the eleven songs were recorded in Nashville, Tennessee. Six of them were produced by Rick Chudacoff, whose production credits include Michael Bolton and Smoky Robinson. Four were recorded at County Q Studios in Nashville where the recording sessions were a very memorable experience due to the talented musicians. One cut, 'Home Sweet You and Me' is an upbeat 'country blues' song, was recorded in Northern California at Northern Lights Studios, and members of the Roy Rodgers Blues Band are featured on this track.
The third song, 'Undescribeable Indefineable Love', a beautifully done romantic ballad, has been picked up by Banner Music in Nashville where it is being pitched there and is garnering much attention. Another song to watch is the very well produced "There's The Door". The upbeat and humorous cut "Girl In The Bright Red Cad" is very engaging and danceable. Ben's rich, smooth baritone, is the perfect vehicle for transporting us through this wonderful musical journey.
Almost every cut stands out, unlike some CDs where only three or four hold your attention. Overall this is a very well written, well sung and well produced CD, and by purchasing this CD you too can partake of some very fine, fresh modern country sounds which you will enjoy for a very long time.
