Escape to the Caribbean without ever leaving home!

"Brannan Lane has packed the entire Caribbean onto one small disc. From the bright,
bouncy opening track, "Welcome," to the sign off "Until Then," this CD will transport you
to an island getaway. What stands out about this project is the multitude of unique sounds
and instruments, from steel drums and pan flute to tropical birds, rain,
and waterfalls. Brannan creatively combines these sounds and instruments, enhancing a
varied selection of simple, pleasing melodies. Are you stressed out? Let the lilting rhythm
of the "Caribbean Sea" wash away those tension lines. Do you need a pick-me-up? The
percussive bonanza featured in "Fire Dance" will get you going on a positive note! Do you
need music to dream by? "Stars to the Sea" will take you to the ocean at night, as the
constellations pour themselves into the horizon. Have you visited the Caribbean before?
"Market Sq" will let you return, right back to the middle of a busy intersection with an
open market! I recommend putting this CD on "repeat play." Then try to avoid calling
your travel agent! --Jeff Bjorck"

"Brannan Lane has created a wonderful, relaxing, CD. Amazing memories of the Barbados flood my mind whenever this CD is spinning. Sitting back, closing my eyes - I can picture the white sandy beach with the swaying palm trees - remembering all the "fun in the sun". This CD is professionally done and captures your imagination of the Islands. It will bring back Caribbean memories and touch your soul if you have been to the islands - or it will create visions for you, if you haven't. But all in all - this CD gives you the Island feeling all around - and watch your feet - you will feel it tapping :)Heather Baskey, Mississauga, Ontario - Canada"
Refreshing and imaginative, this CD is a winner!

"Brannan Lane's debut, CARIBBEAN DREAM, is a refreshing dose of fun and good cheer in a usually somber and dour musical genre. Using a vast array of electronic keyboards, Brannan has fashioned a sonic voyage to a tropical island, complete with steel drums and pan pipes. The music is relaxing even while it makes you want to get up and dance (which it does on some songs). The mood is bright, sunny, and full of life. In addition, the recording is very well-produced and performed. CARIBBEAN DREAM can stand toe-to-toe with many releases from major labels, and usually come out ahead. For sheer musical bravado and creativity, Brannan Lane has few equals this year. If you are looking for a good time, grab your checkbook or credit card and order this CD. You won't be disappointed!"
