New 10-song CD ' blaring in the stillness' to be released in late March 2011 - produced by draz bassist Garth Fielding.
Melodic alt-pop singer-songwriter draz (Andrew Drazic/Garth Fielding) writes songs that feature quirky, lyrical melodies; intelligent lyrics and compelling arrangements. draz creates tracks with first-class production: every instrument is perfectly-balanced; each note of his wide-ranging voice is crystal clear. As a result, draz is fast becoming known as a singer-songwriter, producer and collaborator—receiving tremendous internet buzz and featured on a recent movie soundtrack.
Musically, draz draws on a wide range of sounds and textures. His melodies grab you at first listen. But there is always something—whether an unexpected synth counterpoint, chromatic chord progressions, or some slide guitar—that invites repeated listening. However, nothing is done for effect, each layer only adds to the song. Underlying all of these songs is draz’s voice, which runs from hauntingly beautiful to gritty and driving.
