Back when DRN was a club band playing all the venues in Portland, Seattle and everywhere in between, two gentleman, Michael Mavrolas and Marlon L McClain, took our music under their wing and produced and financed our first EP entitled ‘Breathless’. Today I’ve heard Michael, who we all called ‘Mav’, has suddenly passed away. His boundless passion for music and for life was always a joy to witness, to be immersed in, and his talent and commitment to helping so many artists over the decades is something to truly admire. Mav had a wonderful sense of humor and a great ear for songs! I remember in the studio he was always air drumming, or acting out the guitar riffs, focusing on the melodies, and when Mav smiled and nodded approval you knew you were on to something! ‘Breathless’ paved the way for us getting our record deal and eventually seeing the world through music, and working with Mav and Marlon I experienced producing methods I have carried with me ever since. We will be forever grateful for his faith in our music, for his great spirit, and our thoughts are with all his family and friends at this most difficult time. Fly home safe, Mav… Thank you, sir, for changing all of our lives for the better.
