Feeling a bit camera shy


In one of his songs DREXEL laments about “Dreams of the backside of the sunshine”.
These dreams have been driving him since he first picked up an instrument and wrote his first song. He moved from scene to scene. Recorded with the likes of Ken Coomer (Wilco), Audley Freed (the Black Crowes), Skeeter Thompson (Scream) and Ben Mize (Counting Crows), played in established bands and jammed with anyone with the time. After a soul searching journey overseas, he left it all behind and moved to New York City to start over and at the same time continue.
Less than a year later DREXEL wrote and recorded his debut recording as a solo artist. THE BLOODYTRANSYLVANIASTREETMACHINE is as personal as it is universal. Quiet introspective melodies exist along side loud power chords and screaming indictments. Comparison to his predecessors are inevitable, whether it is the rawness of Kurt Cobain, the grit of Neil Young, or the honesty of Paul Westerberg.
The CD was recorded on a borrowed 4-track machine and originally intended to be a demo, but after bringing it to a studio with the intent to rerecord, it was quickly realized that recapturing the moment was impossible. The time was then dedicated to mixing, enhancing and mastering. In the tradition of Springsteen’s Nebraska or Neil Young’s On the Beach, DREXEL leaves it all on there to be heard.
