Dan Lyons is somebody I have had my eye on for a while now and I reviewed his music only last year.
Dan Lyons is putting together an ‘American’ band for this trip only. Consisting of Sam Doyle (of Maccabees) on drums / Jeremy Reynolds (Hockey) on bass and Jody Porter (Fountains of Wayne) on guitar. along with Dan himself and Freya.
In order to get SXSW Festival, Texas they have set up a music pledge to cover their costs.
Rizer is a big supporter of helping bands raise more awareness and get the word out. Gone are the days of huge advances and pre-paid plane tickets, hotels, bourbon and bad behaviour (so very unrock and roll!) now bands have to do the hard graft and raise the funds themselves.
Please take a look at the link below and see what a few pounds can do to get this talented lot over to the States. Whether its a big or small donation every penny helps them get closer to their destination and to blow America away with their extreme talent.
And when they get big you will be able to say I helped them on their way!
