Singer-songwriter Juliet Simmons Dinallo – Boston Roots and Cowgirl Boots. All the way from Nashville to Memphis, and beyond, Dream Girl is the evolution of Juliet Simmons Dinallo’s singing, songwriting, and journey that began with 2013’s No Regrets on Tree-O-Records. Born in North Carolina, Juliet grew up in Maine and came of age as a musician in Boston. Juliet studied music at the Berklee College of Music, where she landed a spot on the world-renowned Berklee Gospel Choir. She recently moved to Nashville, and these experiences have influenced her songwriting, singing and performance style, giving everything she does a unique expression.
Producer-guitarist-songwriter Michael Dinallo grew up in Ohio then moved to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music. As bandleader for The Radio Kings, who made two records for Icehouse Records in Memphis (including Live at B.B.King’s), and The Mercy Brothers, he has traveled the world. Turning to producing artists in the early 2000’s, Michael has produced Norwegian singer-songwriter William Hut’s gold and platinum awarded album Nightfall along with two number one singles for Universal Music Group. He continued his affiliation with Memphis by producing Eddie Floyd’s return to Stax Records Eddie Loves You So and Feel Like Going Home: The Songs of Charlie Rich for the Phillips Family and Memphis International Records. His most recent project is Juliet Simmons Dinallo’s Dream Girl on BFD/Sony RED. Since relocating to Nashville, Michael has started the popular musical revue Crooked Road Songs (based on the idea of his 2017 EP Crooked Road Songs on Black Rose Records) and received Best of 2018 honors in The Nashville Scene.
