Description

    Dami Im has opted to recorded a covers album, with a twist. Any serious pop connoisseur will go a little giddy at the notion. Dami's 'Classic Carpenters' is as blindingly good as the concept sounds.

    Just look at the writers credits on the album, which includes masterworks from Burt Bacharach and Hal David, Leon Russell, Paul Williams and Richard Carpenter. Songs of this caliber are part of Dami's DNA.

    Highlights on the album include "There's A Kind Of Hush," "Rainy Days And Mondays," "Close To You" and a personal favorite for Dami, "A Song For You." For Dami personally, Karen Carpenter's resonance as an artist runs deep.
     
    "My intention wasn't to copy Karen's voice or her tone," says  Dami. "Our voices naturally sound so different. I tried to bring out the joy and the innocence in the songs while trying to sing them as honest and raw as I could as Dami, rather than pretending to be someone else."

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great classic songs sung by a brilliant new voice Dami Im shows here that she is an all round vocalist with an amazingly wide ranging voice, and with a different style of songs to her pop diva releases. Her strong background in jazz music along with her impressive skills as a pianist bring a fresh take on these wonderful classic hit songs of The Carpenters. Bravo Dami for showing us more of your musical capabilities and breathing a new life into these in your own way as a tribute to the much loved Karen Carpenter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it when timeless classics are done properly! I knew of the Carpenters, probably a handful of songs but they were great! Karen Carpenter had a unique lower vocal register, while Dami's belong in the upper range. She has put a unique spin in the reproduction to suit her style without straying from the original spirit of the songs. It's a pretty smarty move. Im quite surprised by how some of the songs have turned out, and quite frankly I loved them!
