INTRODUCING: DES RES BY DALLIN APPLEBAUM
Dallin Applebaum is an alternative songwriter with a knack for melodic piano-driven songs with a dark-humored spirit. Originally based in New York City, she moved to Nashville in early 2022. Dallin has always been drawn to music- she began playing classical piano at a young age and started singing and writing songs as a teenager. After attending college in New York, Dallin began touring with major pop artists among the likes of Ryan Star & Rachel Platten, in addition to working with recording artists such as Passion Pit, Phil Phillips, Matchbox 20 and many more. Among this success, she also won runner up for Best Folk Song in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest in 2009. . In 2013, Dallin started an electronic rock band called SKYES, who made their way through the Brooklyn indie music scene before she chose to move into writing music on her own. During this time Dallin also wrote and produced pop songs under the alias Alise Indall. Many of Indall’s songs can be heard on TV and film, and “I’m That Girl” was featured in the promotion for the 2018 USA Women’s Olympic teams.
In the process of building her new album, Grey Matters, Dallin began a songwriting club in New York as a place to get together with other songwriters and share ideas. It was through the club that she was able to create a space where she could work through and finish writing all of the songs for her album. Grey Matters, due out in January 2023, explores extremes as a means to understanding and appreciating what's between them. Dallin produced and arranged most of the record herself with the help of her husband & a few extremely talented friends.
She will continue to play shows in Nashville, New York and around the country. Until then, she will be releasing singles and music videos from the album. You can pre-save her first single, Des Res, out on Spotify and other platforms September 15th, 2022.
What hot sounds in the city should fans be listening to of yours right now?
My new single, DES RES. Out 9/15/22 How has the reception been to new music?
We'll see! What are you looking forward to most when you perform in front of an audience this year?
Connecting with new audiences. I played in NYC for a long time and audiences there can be picky yet forgiving. I'm interested to see what this new Nashville audience will be like What was the intention set for your music?
Honesty and good story telling. Which don't always go together :) Though I do believe good story telling does require emotional honesty. What was the most important message to impart with your music?
I try not to write with a message really. I just want to highlight some funny or interesting to beautiful little dark corners of this life that others may have missed. How do you want your fans to treat themselves after listening to your music?
Hmm. I guess I'd like people to just slow down a bit, and appreciate the details. Use their senses, connect with the people around them and their environment, not just on a screen. I'd hope they'd take a chance on something they were scared to do before. What is a song of yours that you have on repeat right now to set the mood for 2022?
Des Res or Til Death Do Us Part, which will be out in October.
