KIMBERLEY DAHME Can't A Girl Change Her Mind?
Escape Music (2009)

Kimberley Dahme

Californian, Kimberley Dahme holds the honourable distinction of being the first (and only?) female member of AOR giants Boston.

After seeing Kimberley perform, Tom Scholz approached her after the show to enquire whether she could play bass? A neat pick up line, except that the answer was 'no'.

But not to let that be a career obstacle, Kimberley practiced for 12 months, auditioned and found herself in the band! Now one might wonder why Tom didn't simply hire a bass player if he was short of one. The cynics might suggest it may have had something to do with Kimberley being a leggy, curvaceous blonde with a sexy voice? We'll never know.

But those expecting some classic 'hood down and hit the highway' rock of the AOR kind are in for a big disappointment, because Can't A Girl Change Her Mind? is a clone of Shania Twain's greatest hits period circa her Come On Over album.

That's not entirely a bad thing if you like your country served up by a hottie, and a big slice of radio friendly pop. And in Kimberley's defence her vocals are somewhat warmer than Shania's. But in many ways pop and country have moved on. If you're a That Don't Impress Me Much fan, dig deeper. If not, steer a wide berth.
