A blend of music icons such as The Beatles, Ray Davies, Ron Sexsmith, Neil Young & Neil Finn, Melbourne late bloomer DC Cardwell has only recently begun to make his mark in the music world. A "triple threat" singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, he sealed his credentials by taking out TWO of the top prizes at the Australian Catapult Song Contest in 2011.
The success of DC's album also paved the way for other opportunities abroad. In 2010 noted Hollywood music supervisor/film composer Jaymee Carpenter (The Fighter, Crime After Crime) heard one of his songs (Birthday Present) on a Youtube video and immediately invite DC to L.A. to record six of his songs for use in his film projects. Jaymee's reaction to DC's music is worth noting, and is quoted here with permission:
"I am seriously blown away by your album. I think it may be the greatest thing I've heard in years! I don't want to freak you out, but I'm drooling over here. You just easily became my favorite 'new' artist!"
