Oleander came to prominence in the late 1990s and early '00s, releasing February Son (1999) and Unwind (2001) before moving over to Sanctuary for Joyride (2003). Hailing from Sacramento, the band built up a healthy following of fans and garnered radio support, thanks to their melodic, post-grunge sound. But the music extended beyond hybrids and music critic jargon and terminology. It had a pulse and a heartbeat, with blood surging through its riffy veins. But despite the success, the grind of touring and promotion took its toll, as it often inevitably does, and the band felt drained. Things weren't fun anymore around 2003 and the boys decided it was time to take a step back, something they were well within their rights to do. That's a refreshing and honest attitude to have, and it's also indicative of the organic nature of the album, all factors that should help Something Beautiful find its audience. And judging from the songs that comprise Something Beautiful, Oleander may get what they weren't looking for. The result is an album that bridges the gap between modern and alternative rock, with Eldridge going so far as to say that the band can't and won't pinpoint influences. "Since our second record and the writing of our third to this point, being our fourth release, I think we have come into our own. If there are influences there, I can't tell you what they are. We get together and write from our hearts," he said. Oleander bassist Doug Eldridge offered a simple but profound statement about his band's new album Something Beautiful, their first effort since embarking on a self-imposed hiatus (but not a break up) that began somewhere around 2005. "We did this for ourselves and to have fun, since we love it," Eldridge said. "If this [record] is huge, great. If not, we had fun and we loved doing it. What happens now is out of our hands."

RED HEAVEN (formerly Dragonfly) as performed by Joel Eilde in Second Life
Red Heaven is a Canadian band which plays original, full-band rock music. Weaving post-grunge metal with Turkish, Indian and African motifs, layers of vocal harmonies and dirty, gritty guitar-driven rhythms, critics call Red Heaven (formerly Dragonfly) *purely, ethereally beautiful* and *refreshing* with a *killer voice.* Red Heaven never bores, never stalls, never draws from the same well twice. Red Heaven's second album, Moth, is coming out in a few weeks. You can contribute to the indiegogo campaign!

Music change a bit in the late 1980's into the 1990's. Grunge came from Seattle, Washington due to the indie record label Sub Pop. Grunge spread to other parts of the United States, but it seemed to fade out by the late 1990's. Today, we'll be talking about the influence of grunge music and how it's still an important musical movement.

Simply put, like every one with a dream, I go after it. Music has been a source of many things to me, so I have pursued music relentlessly. I have developed a style all my own and I'm ready to share it with the world. Through the years I have worked with different bands, choirs and youth groups in the capacities of soloist, musician, and choir director. In the early 90's I played keyboards and drums alternately as well as lead vocals with a band in VA. In the mid to late 90's I moved to Seattle where I Played keyboard and drums with Churches and youth groups. The style of that period was more geared toward alternative rock or grunge diversifying my musical style.
Then in the late 90's to the turn of the century I moved more towards a contemporary and at times traditional gospel mostly focused more on drumming and lead vocals for a various churches in NY. Opportunities to direct choirs ensued along the way throughout the years lending to sharpening my musical and vocal arrangements. After many years of practice, writing, & playing I am venturing to release my own music, this current project "ReeVerse" being my second solo release. I've perform on at various venues and stages including Jazz festivals in St.Lucia…
I Established Reethym Production formal in 2007 to promote not just my self but other artist. In addition I am currently collaborating on a few projects soon to be release for various artists. So keep an eye out for me you never know where I may just pop up. To compliment my music, I am also a photographer and Graphic Designer which enable me to be creative in every aspect of my production from start to finish. Oh yeah and since you here please visit my website and let me know what you think "www.davidmclorren.com". Much love. -d
