Jeremy Dion

A psychotherapist by day, Boulder-based singer-songwriter Jeremy Dion also knows a few things about penning heartfelt slices of Americana. On Golden Some Day, the followup to his 2008 debut full-length, Finally, he takes a few vocal cues from David Gray, especially on the relaxed title track, the sprawling ballad "Legend of the Moon," and faster tunes such as "Waiting" and "Better Day." Dion's singing style works well here, surrounded as it is by the sparse instrumentation, which includes his acoustic strumming; the occasional presence of strings, mandolin and drums; and background vocals from Jessica DeNicola, Tim O'Brien and Anne Sibley. With producer Jamie Mefford (who's worked with Gregory Alan Isakov) at the helm, Golden Some Day sounds as discerning as Dion's earnest lyrics.
