Country Goodness in the Middle of LA.....

Sorry I haven't written in a while, it's been a crazy couple of months!  But I should be back on track now!
I wanted to give a big thank you to Sean Arenas and Diana Diaz, who came out to our show at Molly Malone's a few weeks ago.  They said some really nice things about us in their reviews, which we really appreciate!  Check out the articles below.....

Review by Diana Diaz:

Country goodness in the middle of LA, Brokedown Cadillac at Molly Malone's 1/30/09

A country band performing in an Irish bar in the middle of Los Angeles?  Why not?  L. A.'s odd pastiche of people means anything goes. Dig deep enough and history shows that Los Angeles was once the mythic Wild West with shootouts and stagecoach races on downtown streets.  Before movies and red carpets, ranchos and cattle populated the Hills and the Valley.  A few line dancing bars can be found in the outskirts of town, and San Dimas is the home of a yearly rodeo.

Brokedown Cadillac's lead singer, Corrie English, presents herself with Southern charm, a rarity in the Los Angeles area.  It makes her that much more watchable.  She's an actress who has appeared as a guest star in recognizable shows like Dawson's Creek, One Tree Hill, Without a Trace, NCIS, and CSI Miami.  She's even appeared in a few feature films.   All and that and she can sing.
These days English's favorite role is performing with Brokedown Cadillac and being a songwriter.  She also cowrote the song "Fly Away," which appeared on Sugarland's triple platinum debut album.
English's honey-inflected mezzo voice regales the audience with sincerity and sweetness.  When she sings of being angry at a boss and wanting him to kiss her ________, not only does she stop from singing the word, she retracts saying it's not her style.  The audience most certainly understands.  She give life to mostly female characters in her songs.  The women are dreamers, schemers, hopeful, sexy, sweet.....  read the rest of the review here.

See photos of Brokedown Cadillac by Sean Arenas in the slideshow below.
Brokedown Cadillac is a 5-piece modern country band formed by Corri English and Randy Dunham.  Corri English spends some time acting on TV and in movies.  You may have seen her on Dawson’s Creek, One Tree Hill, Joan of Arcadia, CSI, or Navy NCIS.  You may also have seen Corri in Unrest (2006) or House of Fears (2007), or heard her voice in the video game Dragon Age: Origins (2009).
Randy Dunham and Corri English both appear in Race to Witch Mountain (2009) and perform music for the movie.  Five of Brokedown Cadillac’s songs appear on the soundtrack.
When the band plays at Molly Malone’s, expect a packed room.  The audience of fans cheered on the band as they rolled from song to song, playing tunes that moved the crowd and made them get up and dance several times.... click here to see all of the photos.
