Introducing SUN PALACE''s second CD, "GIVE ME A PERFECT WORLD":
Semi-mystical, romantic, positive, dreamy

Andriette Redmann was raised in Fish Creek, Wisconsin, on a Cherry Farm/Art Colony, and now lives in New York City. Her inspired vision led to SUN PALACE and the critically acclaimed debut CD, "Into Heaven." Collaborating with guitarist John Rokosny (Smithereens/Carry Nation), and lead guitarist Tony Geballe (Discipline Global Mobile artist), Sun Palace began to enjoy national attention.

"GIVE ME A PERFECT WORLD," Sun Palace''s second CD, also features appearances from special musical guests, including Jerry Marotta (Peter Gabriel, Paul McCartney) on drums, percussion and backing vocals, Pat DiNizio (Smithereens) on backing vocals, Jane Scarpantoni (Springsteen, Lou Reed, REM) on Cello, Mark Brotter (HEM) on drums.

The Critical Review, Media Report
Give Me a Perfect World is a magical album; one that somehow reminded me of Stevie Nicks and her dreamy romantic mystery approach--melded with a more lush, layered and textured musical aura. Andriette Redmann''s vocals and songwriting are what drive the project, but the fine guitar work by John Rokosny and Tony Geballe (Robert Fripp) add the classy layers. But there''s so much more--tight drums, clean big vocals, and great production by Roman Klun (eng. Sarah McLachlan) along with lots of rich instrumentation like violins, viola, cello, mandolin, harmonica, and creative percussion.
While the genre is listed as modern rock the feel is in places New Age, World, chill, romance, and A/C. All kinds of sounds are brought into tight focus making the result an album of high quality. I was mesmerized by many of the songs which deal with love and romance as well as bigger questions. Redmann even covers the LED ZEP classic, Going to California; and here it was a good addition to this set of interesting songs.
The title track is an upbeat work that has lots of radio potential. There''s A Man is a tune which lauds her love of her hero. She views this man a heaven, and asks how heaven can be with her. Her creative lyric is the kind that I wish gospel singers would use as it puts flesh on a hero and lover. Love and romance are big themes and the number that encapsulates the thought has to be Love Saves. This is a beautiful selection and a highlight on this disc. Then comes the royal Palace Welcome, which sent my mind into a world of kings and queens and all that is of the chivalric and knightly age. My personal favorite though had to be Man of the Severn Wave. First of all I looked up the meaning of Severn. It is a river in England which has very unusual qualities such as strange floods and movements. This man of the Severn wave walks along the river, then dives into it, then seeming walks on it and rides the wave and finally rides off into the wide sky. The music is perfect for the story and the imagination reels (and revels) in the lyrical and musical images.
Oh but there''s so much more. On The Corridor, I felt (rightly or wrongly) that this was a dream-like experience or a near-death one. The romantic joys in love and life are presented in the song, Show Me Your Wild Side. The song is so alive it literally vibrates. We come to the last track, the 11th cut titled Under the Moon. A short closing number.
Give Me a Perfect World is a wonderful, magical album that incorporates so many elements, music, vocals, lyrics, dreams; and the sum of them is vastly more when they fuse into new elements. A classy rich album that is so nuanced and controlled that it excites rather than bores. I highly recommend this dreamy romantic effort from a great band that has outdone itself. -A. Canales

New York City has a plethora of artists in just as many varying genres. But angle your way towards Sun Palace and you''ll be one happy camper in the Big Apple. Andriette Redmann leads the way with her vocals and keyboard work, and when you consider all the past experience her fellow bandmates thrust under their collective shoulders, it shouldn''t stretch the imagination too far that this one great pop-rock album. The style is almost chill contemporary that could give Sarah McLachlan a run for her money. -J-Sin

Out Smart Magazine
Give me a Perfect World by Sun Palace delivers modern rock with a cool, ethereal flavor. Sun Palace is led by Andriette Redmann and...the music on Perfect World has an otherworldly quality and Euro-pop sensibility, blending rich vocals with dance grooves to create a wall-of-sound-experience. Outstanding songs include Going to California, Familiar Voices, Man of the Severn Wave, and Under the Moon, which features world-beat percussion and inspired vocal performances. In short, Sun Palace''s new album is truly original and not to be missed.

For those inclined to enjoy "happy" visions of the world we live in, Give Me a Perfect World will be most enjoyable, & for them, this gets a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! -Dick Metcalf
