About Blue Reign
Part Red Hot Chili Peppers, part John Mayer, BLUE REIGN has an indie pop rock sound with a funky center.
The trio of Andy Bell (vocals/guitars), Roy Shryne (drums/guitars), and De'Onn Wooden are currently recording tracks for their debut album, Love, Hope, & Other Things, which will be released July 2011 on iTunes. The album is comprised of toe-tappin' grooves and sincere, uplifting lyricism about love, having hope in dark times, and other everyday themes. BLUE REIGN is also paying homage to the classics by releasing their renditions of Oasis' Wonderall, Depeche Mode's Personal Jesus, Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah, and The Beatles' Come Together with this project.
Love, Hope, & Other Things is ultimately a project that reflects the heart of the band and the overall spirit of endurance. BLUE REIGN wants the album to be an encouraging light for themselves and others through these hard times of global economic crisis, immense natural devastation, and seemingly constant war. The amount of negativity in the world today can seem overwhelming at times - this album is designed to fight against the dreary news of the day and help people look up to try and make their everyday world a better place.
Andy, Roy, and De'Onn have been playing music together for the past 6 years and each bring a flavor uniquely their own. Individually, they have shared the stage with Switchfoot, Eve 6, and Better Than Ezra and have performed at some of the largest venues in the Northwest such as The Rose Garden Arena, Memorial Coliseum, and George Amphitheater. Together, BLUE REIGN has just scratched the surface and is looking forward to a bright future.
