Dream to Extremes
Dream To Extremes, Crossover CCM/ Pop Songstress Karli Bonné's Third Solo Release Now Available Dream To Extremes, the latest self-released title from Christian Contemporary crossover artist and vocalist extraordinaire Karli Bonné, is now available. The 13 fresh tracks were written by accomplished songstress Bonné and her producer Chris Pati, and in keeping with her previous well-reviewed CD Angel Without Wings, the songs cover a spectrum of styles from sophisticated contemporary pop to dance club floor-fillers. Inspired by a spiritual awakening that resulted following her battle with drugs and alcohol, Bonné's music is energizing, hopeful and, in a feat that can be tough to pull off, manages to do so in a way that doesn't isolate listeners of any spiritual leaning. The album's first single is 'Me,' a hooky, adult-contemporary song in which Bonné's breathy vocals contemplate her own growth with the catchy chorus, 'I'm not so predictable/I don't really know it all/I am not invincible/But someday I'll walk through walls.' 'Dream to Extremes,' the title track and a soon-to-be self-empowerment anthem, is another standout with it's European dance diva vibe and feel-good battle cry: 'You'll fulfill all your dreams/So dream to extremes.' Listeners will also find the Latin-influenced 'Amore de mi Corazón' which promises 'I can weather any storm that comes my way,' and the sparkly, retro 80's 'New Ways,' which sounds like what might have happened if Madonna's early pop hits had had some lyrical substance. The album is rounded out with more songs of love, life, and faith sung by a woman fueled by a passion for all three. New York-based Karli Bonné is a 20-year veteran of the stage, having started out in school plays and rock bands when she was a teenager in Queens. She has fronted over half a dozen bands since, and even found herself singing alongside Kiss' Ace Frehley onstage at New York's China Club. Having survived life-altering addiction problems, this wife and mother has turned back to music full time with great success. Videos for 'Answers' and 'My Serenade,' both off Angel Without Wings, are in rotation on New York area cable shows Arise and Shine and 30cc. Bonné also acts in local stage productions, and is currently putting together a full live band to hit the club scene and promote Dream to Extremes. The woman who once had no hope now finds she has faith enough to share, and is driven to helping others benefit from her experience. 'No matter who you are, be yourself and no one can stop you!' encourages Bonné. And she seems to be taking her own advice, with another album's worth of material already complete. 'I write and finish one song and three more pop into my head. I'm ready for my fifth CD at this point!' 'Excellent songwriting technique [and] a powerfully moving voice, as well. - Music Dish Network Contact Karli Bonné at k (516) 385- 2592.
