Dion Bayman - Don't Look Down

Recommended Posts

I loved his previous album 'Afterburn'. The new album out in April.

 

From his website:

 

Following on from his acclaimed 2014 release 'Afterburn', Dion Bayman returns with his highly anticipated new album 'Don't Look Down'.

As well as having a heavier edge to the sound, 'Don't Look Down' encompasses all the tremendous hooks, emotive vocals, beautiful melodies, and extremely catchy choruses that is expected from a Dion Bayman release.

'Don't Look Down' is a well produced, well written, guitar driven album that will surely please fans of melodic rock/pop
.

From the age of six Dion began classical piano lessons, undertaking grade examinations with the Australian Music Examinations Board. Dion continued these lessons for the next eleven years becoming an accomplished pianist.

As a teenager, Dion began writing and recording his own original songs, many of which were heavily requested and played on local radio stations.

Dion was also becoming known as a singer and performer fronting several popular local rock bands. His entertaining live shows and extensive touring has garnered a large and loyal following.

Dion's musical tastes are wide ranging. However, his song writing influences include acts such as Matchbox Twenty, Bon Jovi, Keith Urban, Richard Marx and Bryan Adams to name just a few.

If you like songs that are infectious and hook-ridden, containing multi-layered harmonies and anthemic choruses combined with lyrics from the heart, then Dion's new album 'Don't Look Down' will definitely not disappoint.

Dion's new album 'Don't Look Down' will be released in April 2016.

So he's Australian? Never heard of him in my life but that's a pretty good song. Would love to check out this and the last album.

Lol. Guess I never got around to checking him out. ;) I assume this is hard as sin to track down for half decent price.

Listening to the album on Spotify. This is very well done. For fans of lighter traditional AOR, just short of Westcoast AOR. "Feelgood AOR" for lack of a better term.

 

For those without Spotify:

    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/      
    • I thought of this one today for some reason.  I'm sure everyone here is familiar with "Talking Heads - Psycho Killer" from '77, a very strange track in it's own right, but does anyone here remember the 1980 parody track "Psycho Chicken" by "The Fools"?      
    • That's more like it mate. Your best one so far. Keep it up.
