Johnnie DeGiuli

Album Title: Songs In Dee
Release Date: November 16, 2004
Genre: Pop/Rock
A mix of contemporary country and pop-punk is what Johnnie DeGiuli's (founding member of Juno-winning group Honeymoon Suite) solo debut offers. As disparate as those two genres might seem, saying "Songs In Dee" is a twist of the two isn't completely bonkers. Both contemporary country and pop-punk are essentially sub-genres that have lost most defining characteristics of the sound they originated from. CC has no twang, banjos, or fiddle, while pop-punk has no politics, attitude, or genuine anger. Therefore the two genres really aren't so different after all. DeGiuli pulls elements of both into his 10-track record, without belonging in either category. His voice has the same sound as many of today's country artists such as Brad Johner or "that other guy with the hat", but the forcefully sung/screamed choruses pull the electric youth of pop-punk into play. Then there is the constant battle between the acoustic and electric guitar, not to mention the odd piano solo, which associates DeGiuli with the adult contemporary worldÖbut let's not make things too complicated.
