Juliet Simmons Dinallo & Michael Dinallo

Making transitions is never easy, and the way Juliet Simmons Dinallo expresses the ups and downs of the human process of moving, changing and growing older is the joy of listening to Dream Girl. There’s tension here, and unresolved matters of the heart and soul: “I don’t have all the answers,” goes one song, and another finds the narrator driving from Nashville to Memphis, accompanied by a groove that evokes the sweet-and-sour styles of both cities.

“If you look up the word underrated, then Michael Dinallo‘s name should be right beside it. He has an imposing array of credits from producing soul great Eddie Floyd to helming the esteemed “Feel Like Going Home: The Songs of Charlie Rich,” yet he has never received the credit he deserves.
