Leap of Faith
San Francisco native, Dallis Craft 's debut CD appropriately titled, Leap Of Faith, is an eclectic blend of Americana stylings, built around 12 great original songs with beautiful arrangements, powerful vocals, and masterful musicianship, in a presentation which makes it stand out as a high-tech yet refreshingly truthful production. Aided and abetted by her fine band, 'Leap of Faith' showcases Dallis' stunning vocals on a variety of rootsy originals, with elements ranging from pop to blues, bluegrass to gospel. The CD features a roster of friends and local luminaries like Jules Broussard, John Lee Sanders, James Pugh (Robert Cray), Hershel Yatovitz (Chris Isaak), Andy Sturmer (Jellyfish), and producer/musician Bruce Kaphan (American Music Club, David Byrne, Jewel). But the real star of 'Leap of Faith' is Dallis' voice. World-class vocalist--world-class music.
