I'm very grateful to Tim Hinely for kindly reviewing my record. The review is now available in the short review section of his webzine: http://www.daggerzine.com. I've also copied and pasted it below. The album is also in his "top ten" November 2010 albums!
Daggerzine Review: "DAFNI- SWEET TIME- DAFFER DOODLE MUSIC- LA gal on her 4th record (I never heard the first 3) but she has this gorgeous voice that lands right in the middle of Joni Mitchell and Billie Holiday while her backing band are all pros who keep it all laid back and low-key, at times mining country, folk and some jazz too. Perfect record for a lonely Saturday night or a lazy Sunday morning . Well done."
On another note, many thanks go out to Russell Hill, of Maverick Magazine, for his kind review that is featured in the magazine's January issue. "Sweet Time" received 4 out of 5 stars, and I've copied and pasted the review below! The January issue is now available for download at: http://www.maverick-country.com/, and a printed version of the magazine can be ordered starting December 10th. You can use the promotional code MAV123 for a discount of £1 when ordering the printed version online.
Maverick Magazine Review: “Wonderfully mellow with a tranquil edge to it that has a lot to say for itself. From the Los Angeles area, Dafni Amirsakis originally grew up inWisconsin where she learnt that she wanted to be a singer whilst watching The Wizard Of Oz. Her grandmother has played a huge part in her life, not just for the love she gave but also that she too had a beautiful voice which was popular in her Greek home. This is Dafni’s fifth album and is dedicated to her and what a beautiful album it is. Despite there being only eleven songs, this record fits a lot of quality into its four walls. The one track which fills up a large part of this space in this metaphorical place is Under The Blue Skies. With an intriguing opening in particular with the picking, it sounds a tad country but has a Cajun feel to it as well. Including some Americana influences, Someday changes pace on several occasions throughout with much success. With a great deal of scatting near the end, this only increases the superb quality to this song and is one which I highly recommend you check out. A sixth album on the way? Here’s hoping so. RH”

I've put up several videos on YouTube of me (solo and with my band) playing various songs (mostly covers). You can find them here. Also, check out last night's performance "Anarchy in the UK," backed up by Adam Marsland's Chaos Band at Adam's 70s Show.
