“Hold A Place” by Dinah Thorpe

Folk/Singer-Songwriter Dinah Thorpe has a knack for crafting smart, genre-melding pop.

Her new album, Lullabies and Wake-Up Calls, is also an exercise in beautiful contradiction. As songwriter, performer, and producer, Thorpe plays multiple stylistic roles on the album. The Toronto-based artist has been favorably compared to Laurie Anderson, Portishead, Natalie Merchant, Beth Orton, Grace Jones, Feist, and David Bowie among others. But Thorpe draws on a hugely diverse range of influences – from folk to rap, trip hop to blues, orchestral to techno – and distills them into a musical style that is unmistakably Dinah Thorpe.
