Jeremy Dion – Golden Some Day

3 stars out of 5
In reference to his other job, Jeremy Dion is known throughout Boulder as the Songwriter Psychotherapist. His subdued, amiable voice is certainly suitable for both job descriptions. Dion’s latest full-length album, Golden Some Day, doesn’t stray far outside the realms of an Americana-folk comfort zone, but his songwriting and guitar-playing talents are similar to those of fellow Boulderite Gregory Alan Isakov. Dion’s self-described “Mile High Americana” is a genre-title aptly named for Golden Some Day, his acoustic sound supported by a full artist crew inclduing Jamie Mefford on lap steel and banjo, Peter Sharpe on mandolin and Tim O’Brien on fiddle. The album’s highlight, “Legend of the Moon,” is completed with Phil Parker’s underlying cello throughout, bringing to mind a similar technique used frequently on Isakov’s The Weatherman. With Jeremy Dion’s comforting voice and good heart, Golden Some Day is worth the listen.
