So let's talk about his debut single, "Something Like Somethin". It starts off with a little bit of Jason Mraz then takes a left turn and becomes something all on it's own. Something that is all Dakota. It's a great summer song because it's just easy and fun. It's not complicated and it will have you bobbing along before the first chorus. It's well written and with the proper promotion - it could easily be a number one hit. It's one of those things where he could be the male version of Taylor Swift. Not a carbon copy, mind you...but someone for young male country fans to look up to. A voice for all the things that young male fans feel and need to express like Taylor did for her fanbase.
What I appreciate about the country/folk/americana genres is that you have to be able to sing. You can't have a ton of clean up in post because the fans won't put up with it. As much as I like the song because it is just easy breezy, I like it because Dakota delivers it like he's been doing it for years. He is going to be someone soon and when this track is picked up by the major stations and the official video hits GAC and CMT's countdowns, you'll appreciate being on this side of it because you can tell your friends you knew about him months and months ago. What's going to be cool for him is when he becomes VH1's "Artist You Oughtta Know".
