Taylor Dayne does Australia; Sydney Report, by Eva Rinaldi - 13th October 2011
Taylor Dayne, the American freestyle music, and smooth jazz artist from New York City, is currently loving her Australian tour
The Diva who enjoyed mainstream popularity in the 1980s is showing Australian audiences that she still has what it takes, as she does close to over a dozen Aussie venues this month.
Last night is was Selina's at the Coogee Bay Hotel, and tonight it will be Bankstown Sports Club, in Sydney's West.
Dayne will perform hits, including Tell It to My Heart, With Every Beat of My Heart, Prove Your Love, I’ll Be Your Shelter, Don’t Rush Me and many more. Her latest single, Facing a Miracle, was the official anthem of the Gay Games.
“You can shoot for the stars - and I think everybody should - but I remember having some very frustrating moments thinking ‘God, is it ever going to happen?’ ” she said.
“But from the minute Tell It to My Heart broke in Europe as a single - I remember I showed up at one store and there were 1000 kids dressed like me - I never looked back.”
Ms Dayne said her Aussie fans would not be disappointed when they came to see her.
"I have been performing for 23 years and I promise I will not come out looking like Taylor Dayne from 1988, but I will take my fans on a journey," she said. "It’s a soundtrack to their lives as much as mine."
Tickets to some of her Australian shows can be purchased for as low at $50, so what are you waiting for. Get ready to have your world rocked, and enjoy music with huge heart and love.
The Music News Australia network is looking forward to catching Ms Dayne in person at a couple of gigs, and you should be too.
REVIEW: FLOOR ON FIRE' NEW SINGLE...
Taylor Dayne's new single "Floor On Fire" combines the iconic singer's big voice and the latest sounds to form an explosive blend. The song was written by Taylor Dayne in conjunction with Swedish songwriters Niclas Kings and Ivar Lisinski, plus Aussie artist Tania Doko thrown into the mix. Niclas Kings and Ivar Lisinski also produced the original with Tania Doko performing backing vocals. Hit producers such as The Thin Red Men, Marc Lime & K-Bastian or Zoned Out threw in nice mixes especially suitable for the European crowd. The single has 8 versions. If your a Dayne fan, this is a must. If you haven't discovered her music yet, this is an ideal chance to catch up.
