Product Notes

Drawing inspiration from classic jazz vocalists (Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald), modern-day chanteuses (Eleni Mandell, Norah Jones, Madeleine Peyroux), and denizens of the Los Angeles alt-country scene (Randy Weeks, Mike Stinson, Tony Gilkyson), with Charlie's Lonely Sunday, her third album and first to be released on the Boronda Records label, Dafni presents a collection of 13 songs spanning a range of genres from the rockabilly hoedown of the opener "Dimes" to tracks featuring Latin ("Let's Pretend", "Lonely Sunday"), country ("This One Dance", "Never Tell You Why"), Americana ("Broken Letter", "Carried Away"), and jazz-tinged ("Complicated", "Honey Honey") grooves. Dafni's band had grown so comfortable playing together during a year of regular performances that they recorded the basic tracks for all of these songs live-vocals included-in a single day at producer Charlie McGovern's Big Ol' Studio in North Hollywood (two of the songs were later rerecorded on another day-again live), providing the album with a consistency that captures the vibe of the band's shows. In addition to 11 of Dafni's original compositions, Charlie's Lonely Sunday contains a Cajun-style cover of labelmate Tracy Huffman's "Bottom of a Well" and a country romp-the saucy "Down and Dirty"-co-written with L.A. songstress Sarah Stanley.
