DAKOTA LULLABY REVIEWS

Music Road by Kerry Dexter

"The joyous side of love and the blue side, the thoughtful side, and the funny one, the crazy bits of friendship and the thought provoking ones, the quiet of a northern prairie night and the voices of those who made history there --- you meet all these ideas in Dakota Lullaby, the latest album from Christine Albert and Chris Gage. There are a dozen songs on the disc, varying in melody from swing to folk to country to blues, in tone from raucous to funny to reflective....."    read more

Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange by Frank Gutch, Jr.

"A labor of love, that is what this is. Pure, unadulterated labor of love. Prairie and plains might have something to do with the music, but Dakota Lullaby is all about the love: Tom Peterson's love of the Dakotas as well as Christine Albert and Chris Gage's love of song. Remember the phrase "love conquers all?" Well, if it didn't, Dakota Lullaby wouldn't exist. Does the fact that it does give credence to the phrase? For those who would like to think so, here is the story, Cliff's Notes-style."   read more

Taylor Magazine "Wood and Steel"

Dirty Linen by Kerry Dexter     June 2006
   "A journey through loss, love, healing, change, and hope, with splashes of laughter and faith."

Buddy Magazine by Tom Geddie      March 2006

"There is an inevitable and welcome sweetness to the music of Christine Albert and Chris Gage, even when they choose to do a downer song.  The sweetness is in their beautiful harmonies and the obvious onstage chemistry.  Cry Love, their fifth duet CD in nine years, is a sort of gospel of love, looking at both fulfillment, loss, and yearning.  read more

"When I sat down to listen to ‘Burnin’ Moonlight’ the first thing that came to my mind was that Albert and Gage sing their songs from the heart.   Pure and simple, straight from the heart of Texas."

PROMOTERS SAY......

     "What a fantastic time everyone had at our recent house concert with Albert and Gage.  Christine's exquisite voice, coupled with Chris' masterful guitar playing, left everyone breathless.  Their harmonies made the rafters in our home ring like never before.  On top of it all, their song selection, a mixture of originals and well-chosen covers, included something for everyone.  A night that we, and our guests, will never forget!"
     Arlene and Mark Klemow  /   Split Level House Concerts  Scotch Plains, NJ  July, 2001

     "Albert and Gage drew a record crowd to our acoustic concert series, and proceeded to put on a high-voltage, crowd-pleasing performance. Country, rock, blues, folk, French torch - it didn't matter. They nailed 'em all. Christine Albert alone is a singer-songwriter of no small talent - just look at the awards she's earned. Put her together with Chris Gage - a powerhouse in his own right - and you have a duo that's just about unstoppable! I can't speak for Chris - I didn't know him beforehand - but I've been watching Christine's musical evolution over the past five years, and teaming up with Chris has highlighted her already-considerable talent. You can't go wrong with a pair of aces like these."
     Bill James  /  Belton Texas Acoustic Concert Series

     "Albert and Gage are individually very talented singer songwriters and together they are a power house of folk rock. Our audience was amazed at the talent.  Christine Albert and Chris Gage are not to be missed.   The house rocked...and the piano is still smoking. They'll rock you, soothe you and make you want for more."
     Glen Duckett   /   "Flowers in the Desert" - House Concerts, Brenham, Texas.

A blend of voices equals one soulful show.
     "This folk/country duo have created a harmonic sound with original and compelling performances that are hard to match.  Chris Gage and Christine Albert are an electrifying pair who offer a range of music from country and folk to rock and the blues.  Employing a bouquet of instruments - from pianos to acoustic guitars - the duo leave show goers rocking one minute, then sitting back and taking it easy the next.  The Austin-based singer-songwriters (who are a couple both on and off the stage) are often compared to other primo country pairs such as George Jones and Tammy Wynette.  Albert and Gage have a portfolio of awards and a resume filled with media appearances and tours."
