So THIS is why you haven't seen me around here as much lately hu?
It's been a blur of a month and I've been so busy I haven't been able to be around here as much lately.
I've gotten a few messages from people wondering if everything is ok... so - here's the news.
(Los Angeles, CA) –
Oklahoma artist, Malan Darras, has spent the last 6-7 years toiling away throughout the Midwest, making a name for himself as an innovative singer, songwriter and performer. While performing all over the region and throughout the country, the singer has seen his fair share of success as a touring musician.
Now as the provocative front man prepares to launch his first CD in almost two years, he’s looking at the national stage and to his surprise, it’s looking back.
“I started recording tracks at home and it just kind of exploded…” — M. Darras
The new album titled “Who Is Malan D?” is a departure for Darras, who has become near-legendary in the cross-genre, psychedelic, jam band music scene and showcases the artists’ passion for digital and electronic music. But “Who Is Malan D?” is not a techno album. The music is edgy, and actually… piano-based, which is a new instrument for Darras.
“I’m doing everything different right now. I’m turning the way I make music upside down, shaking it and seeing what comes out.” - M. Darras
All of the songs were written and recorded in 40 days at Darras’ home studio. Producing and performing almost every note on the album, Darras enlisted Reed Mathis (Jacob Fred Jazz Odysseym) and Danelle Phillips (Congress Of A Crow) to give guest appearances on the final track, “Beautiful Girl”. The CD was mastered by Kendall Stephens at the legendary RaxTrax studios in Chicago, IL.
The album is being released by Los Angeles based Pasadena Records and will be marketed internationally by Crestline, CA PR firm, Maelstrom PR (Blue Worm Records, Pockit Records). Darras has also signed an exclusive digital deal with digital music innovators Blast My Music (Los Angeles) and will be the featured artist for the month of April on the highly trafficked website.
“I took a left turn and was curious if anyone would follow…I had no idea it would work.” — M. Darras
