D & M Comes To The Saint on June 11
The alternative pop band, known as D & M, will be releasing their new EP, Delawanna, on June 28th. Reminiscent to Damien Rice, John Mayer and Mumford & Son's, this is without a doubt a highly anticipated album for summer 2011.
Consisting of Danny Fornasa (lead vocals/guitar), Miles Mueller (percussion/b.g. vocals), and Matt Klahre (lead guitar), D & M was formed in 2009 at Drexel University in Philadelphia. Fornasa is the group's lead vocalist, acoustic guitar player, and main songwriter. His expansive vocal range allows the group to write dynamic songs that keep the listener enticed track after track. Mueller provides the percussion and essential background vocals that make the hooks of each song even more unforgettable. Lastly, Klahre is the lead guitarist who returns the group's modern pop stylings to their blues roots with melodic guitar lines and searing blues solos.
D & M teamed up with kickstarter.com to start a fan fundraising project for a national summer tour. The "Every State of the Union Tour" was born and will bring D & M across the country on a national tour funded entirely by their fans. This national tour will support their forthcoming EP Delawanna.
"We're proud of what we recorded with Delawanna. We've moved beyond our influences and the sounds of our peers and defined D & M's musical sound," says Fornasa.
D & M will release Delawanna on June 28th. Please go to wearedandm.com for more updates.
