DRN Studio Session

Here’s a video sample of what the ‘DRN Live Studios Session’ vibe was about in Manchester, England this last December 1st, and a taste of upcoming single ‘Fade to Light’! We are excited about doing these events in New York City on May 12th and in our hometown of Portland, Oregon May 18th! Please visit the event page if you are interested in attending either Session and would like to learn more. Thank you 🙂 Event Page Link – https://www.facebook.com/events/338817979953138/ Thank you Paul Mortlock, Dan Pred and Rob Daiker for creating this clip!

Happy to announce DRN’s ‘Live Studio Sessions’ is coming to NEW YORK CITY on Saturday May 12th, and to our home town of PORTLAND, Oregon on Friday May 18th, and you are invited to be a part of recording our two new singles! Ticket Links are toward the end of this text. After the most inspiring and fun filled time of doing the ‘Live Sessions’ in Manchester, England last December 1st with a truly lovely live audience we are bringing the idea to the US for all the East Coast and West Coast supporters of our music and any one who wishes to make the journey 🙂 The legendary ‘Power Station’ Session in Manhattan on Saturday May 12th will be a capacity of (70) people, and the recording in the beautiful ‘Nia Studios’ in Portland on Friday May 18th will be a capacity of (120). The band and myself will be truly honoured to have all those who are able to attend either of these gatherings and be a part of recording new music and reworking a track from our past. We will also be simultaneously filming the entire day for a future music video and possible documentary! In the UK tickets were 100 pounds which is $120 US, so tickets are $120. We realised last year that many artists charge this much or more for an hour meet and greet, something DRN has never done for we feel people have already paid to attend the show, it’s our pleasure to come out afterwards and thank those who wish to stick around and say hello. Our manager Dario Nikzad then came up with this idea to do a full day with the band have everyone be involved in the recording process! We understand $120 is a substantial amount of money, but we hope to give you all a most memorable musical experience 🙂 You will receive an email confirmation after purchasing tickets, which is all you need to gain entry. Tickets include an hour meet and greet at the event door times, then we will all gather in the studio, record a new single live in the round, from the drums, bass, guitar, keys and vocals. The band will then serve and share a catered dinner together, and after the meal, with all of your help, we will record some background vocals on the new track and also a remake of a DRN song of old! (don’t worry if you don’t like singing… you can always play some percussion, maybe the spoons?!) We will then end the day with an unplugged concert in the evening, so bring..

Happy to announce DRN’s ‘Live Studio Sessions’ is coming to NEW YORK CITY and PORTLAND, Oregon in May! After the most inspiring and fun filled time of doing this in Manchester last December with a truly lovely live audience we are bringing the idea to the US for all the East Coast and West Coast supporters of our music and any one who wishes to make the journey 🙂 The legendary ‘Power Station’ Session in Manhattan on Saturday May 12th will be a capacity of 70 people, and the recording in the beautiful ‘Nia Studios’ in Portland on Friday May 18th will be a capacity of 120. Start times and ticket links will be posted this Tuesday, and just wish to start spreading the news! The band and myself will be truly honoured to have all those who are able to attend either of these events and be a part of recording new music and reworking a track from our past. Tickets will be $120… and will include an hour meet and greet, then we will all gather in the studio, watch the band record a new single live in the round, then we will do some drums, bass, guitar, key overdubs and then the lead vocals. We then share a catered dinner together, and after the meal, with all of your help, we will record some background vocals on the new track and also a remake of a DRN song of old! (don’t worry if you don’t like singing… you can play some percussion if you prefer?) And then we will end the day with an unplugged concert in the evening… so bring your requests! Please stay tuned for more information this Tuesday and thank you all for sharing such positive comments about doing this idea in the US a few months back. We heard you and can’t wait to share the day with you all. To all a relaxing Sunday! Note… My apologies for believing we were originally going to do the NY Session in Upstate New York when I posted last month. The notion of doing it out in the country, although tranquil, was proving to be too remote to coordinate all the elements that go in to making these gatherings work. Travel times and accommodations for the guests and the band being at the top of the list. Thank you for understanding. Plus the tracks we will be recording will be rocking and getting funky, so perhaps ‘tranquil’ was not the best idea? 🙂 Photos by Amanda Rose and Graphic by Graeme Bell
