New Day Dawn / Press

“If you are looking for good rock, plain and simple, then New Day Dawn’s Rise Above This is for you. The music, blending old school rock with touches of modern alternative, is unpretentious and definitely fun ...Rise Above This proves New Day Dawn to be a band to watch. Highly recommended!”

“Too many bands try to reinvent the wheel. New Day Dawn simply improves the ride, using memorable guitar/vocal interplay and slight tempo shifts to capture the listener. And Dawn's holds are simply captivating. It's refreshing to hear something that kicks pretentiousness and snobbery to the curb and candidly provides balls-out, rocking music. -”

"The track is silky smooth and will have you lost in it. I love the vocals and the backing vocals accentuate them. Some of the notes that they hit are huge. You will just fall in love with this one..."

““Straight-up thrilling and unpretentious rock … songwriting is smart, thoughtful and reflective, with a nice line in bittersweet regret… A damn fine album!””

Joe Wawrzyniak - Jersey Beat Magazine

““Botti attacked the mic with the ferocity of Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Karen O and with the spiked coo of Denali/Ambulette frontwoman Maura Davis. From their intense opener… NDD had the crowd pumped and attentive.””

The Newark Examiner

““… instantly likeable …Love this song; love the tune and love the lyrics! It delivers just the right amount of punch to the ears.””

Brenning Jones - Review You.com

““[The band]…showcases the star power of lead singer Dawn Botti who sounds alternately like she’s going to “f-ck with you”..., “f-ck you up”... or just plain “f-ck you.””

Mike Doktorski - New Brunswick Underground

““Botti…has a humongous voice that she uses judiciously… [It’s] pretty even when she screams.””

- The Asbury Park Press

“There is not one track that would not be a viable option for a DJ at a radio station or on Internet music channels!”

Kevin Hannaleck - Muzikreviews

““Botti may share Pat Benatar’s toughness, vocally, but she is by no means angry all the time like that ‘80s icon.””

Dan MacIntosh - ReviewYou.com

“New Day Dawn is rock-pop outfit fronted by singer/songwriter/musician Dawn Botti...The albums kicks into high gear immediately with “Misunderstood”, a hook filled track that has hit single written all over it. Botti’s voice is very infectious yet powerful enough to hold the line on their rockin’ tracks.... The prevailing factor is that the impact of every track ends up having more juice because of the pinpoint singing style of the band’s leader. Nothing is wasted here either; every instrument is in place to push Dawn’s voice out front with conviction... This is a very good recording straight on through and there is not one track that would not be a viable option for a DJ in a brick and mortar radio station or on Internet music channels.”

“Listeners can debate forever on how personal, or impersonal, The Company We Keep truly is. But there’s no argument about the quality of this music because every performance is sharp and focused, and expertly communicated. Over and out. ”
