L.A. Pop Rock Newcomers Time and the Dragon Release Debut EP
09-24-2013 | Music Releases
LOS ANGELES – New L.A. pop rock sextet Time and the Dragon have released their debut EP, "Songs for Your Movie," and the record, with its bright classic pop melodies and a Fleetwood Mac-esque collaborative dynamic, is generating quite a buzz since it came out in August.
The band is in the midst of a residency at L.A.'s Karma Lounge; a track appears in new indie film "The Bet"; and two other songs will be heard in a forthcoming Web series that features an NFL star.
Not bad for a record that has fewer songs than it has band members.
Time and the Dragon features vocalist/guitarist Kalen Chase, a longtime touring member of Korn; Kalen’s brother, vocalist/guitarist Nick Morris, a screenwriter and producer; bassist Jason Fresquez, a onetime member of New York’s Bottom Line Cabaret backline; drummer Dan Welby, a percussion teacher; vocalist/guitarist Mike Sherry; and vocalist/keyboardist Jo Nagle, a session singer.
Morris and Chase formed the band in 2010, adding members over time – Morris and Nagle met when he asked her to sing a duet on Barbra Streisand’s “Memories” at a distant relative’s funeral. Something clicked. Now the sextet shares songwriting and lead vocal duties.
"Kalen and I were both at a point where making music needed to be fun. It doesn't get much more fun than the six of us in a room together," Morris said. "Even our more serious material has a hint of swagger and bravado. We don't stray too far from our overall desire to party."
In addition to their continuing residency at Karma Lounge, Time and the Dragon has a Western U.S. tour planned for 2014. A music video is also due in coming months.
Time and the Dragon's self-released debut EP "Songs for Your Movie" is available now in digital music stores worldwide.
