The New York-born artist,’s three albums for Arista Records, Tell It To My Heart, Can’t Fight Fate, and Soul Dancing, produced twelve Top 20 singles, among them the chart-topping ‘Love Will Lead You Back.’ Over the course of her career, she has sold more than 75 million albums and singles worldwide, garnering three Grammy nominations along the way. On her new album, Dayne co-wrote four of the songs, including the first single, ‘Beautiful,’ with Norwegian tunesmith Hitesh, as well as ‘Love Chain,’ ‘The Fall’ and ‘Hymn.’
Other top-name producer/writers on Satisfied include Mike Mangini (Baha Men, Digbable Planets, O-Town, Bruce Hornsby, David Byrne), Peter Wade (Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Natasha Bedingfield), and the New Radicals’ Gregg Alexander (‘You Get What You Give’) & Rick Nowels (Stevie Nicks, Madonna, k.d. lang, Nelly Furtado, Santana), among others.
The new album offers Dayne an opportunity to show off the versatility of her amazing pipes, which have gotten deeper, richer and more confident with age. She is equally at home on soaring ballads like ‘Beautiful’ and the show-stopping ‘Hymn,’ both of which she co-wrote, as she is with the Spector-meets-Heart rock of ‘Crash,’ the come-hither sensuality of ‘Kissing You,’ the dance-floor beat of ‘I’m Over My Head’ and the reggae rhythms of ‘She Don’t Love You’ and ‘Dedicated.’
‘The songs on the album have come from everywhere,’ she says. ‘I went through tons of CD’s with my A&R team to choose material best suited for me. I knew the songs had to come from a universal place, for it to resonate with people. It’s all about the song, which is something I learned from Clive [Davis] when I first started. Finding the right material is key, it should allow you to tell your story, let your true voice come through and reach people simultaneously.’
