Biography

The Sea Dragons are a NYC based pop/rock band founded by singer, songwriter and producer Darryl Thurston. “sparkly pop songwriting. Think of the Rolling Stones without the pseudo-Satanic side, with a little George Harrison and bubblegum psychedelia thrown into the pot. Each song tickles the pop funny bone in a slightly different way.” Jon Sobel Music Critic, The Bagel and the Rat

The Sea Dragons have quickly gained a reputation as a solid musical entity with tightly produced recordings and a live show filled with strong well-crafted songs with unforgettable choruses. Through internet radio play, interviews and performances The Sea Dragons are rapidly gaining momentum. Their 5 song EP is receiving excellent press.
“Thick, buzzing instrumentation sets the classic rock tone on Sea Dragons’ self-titled EP. The band’s five songs have a consistent sound that pays real tribute to their influences while still making their sound their own.” - Plug in Music

Darryl is a multi-instrumentalist who also produces the bands recordings in his home studio. As a guitarist his work has been heard on HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, ESPN, etc, as well as film, TV and radio jingles. He is also a video editor with an award winning film to his credit, a painter and amateur astronomer.

When looking to put a band together to play the new songs he recorded Darryl ran into Nova Scotia native Rob Ritchie, an accomplished jazz and rock guitarist. Rob was giving guitar lessons to all the neighborhood kids. They met in a mutual friend’s basement, started playing and Darryl knew he was the guy. As Darryl explains “He’s a great guitarist and I asked him if he would play bass. Lucky for me he said yes.”

Rob was in a band with his friend Mike Beck, a Berkley schooled multi-instrumentalist who like Darryl first started out on drums. “We needed a drummer and Mike heard a disk and said yes. He also has a great voice so with Mike and Rob hitting those harmonies it really made the sound jell.”

With the band members in place The Sea Dragons are currently playing live shows, making pod cast appearances and preparing to shoot and edit their own music video. Look for The Sea Dragons to release a full length CD on their own label.

“Rockin’ roots stuff that feels so nice. It sounds so simple…when done right.”

Lyrics

Sweet Delilah

Written By: Darryl Thurston

Walking down the dirty street with the sunlight in her hair
Singing with the headphones on she pretends that she don't care
But no one knows her, no one sees her
When she's back at home
No one knows what life is like
When she's all alone

Sweet Delilah you know it's getting better every day
Sweet Delilah no one else can make me feel this way

Sometimes yellow sometimes green sunglasses cover her eyes
And through a smile of cherry red she hides it all inside

But no one knows her, no one sees her
When she's back at home
No one knows what life is like
When she's all alone

Sweet Delilah you know it's getting better every day
Sweet Delilah no one else can make me feel this way

What can she do?
What can she say?
Sometime she just wants to run away

Sweet Delilah you know it's getting better every day
Sweet Delilah no one else can make me feel this way

Come September

Written By: Darryl Thurston

I saw you buying flowers on a Saturday
Red and yellow, green just like your eyes
Like an August breeze your friends have gone away
The ending of a story always made you cry

If you’re all alone come September
You can be my summer be my sunny day

Another Monday morning in this empty town
Go to work but you just wanna be somewhere
No one wants to know you when you’re feeling down
It’s so easy to say you just don’t care

If you’re all alone come September
You can be my summer be my sunny day

Let’s take a trip away from her and leave it all behind
Let the miles go drifting by don’t stop to ask why

If you’re all alone come September
You can be my summer be my sunny day
