Dead Bouquet is a rock trio that expresses mystical and nocturne atmospheres through moors of eclectic psychedelia, sealed by distortions from a twelve string acoustic guitar and characterized by folk, Celtic and boundary sonorities, hanging in balance between light and darkness.
The songwriting approach of the band is empathized in a significant way by deep notes touched using the voice, reaching its maximum expression in the harmonious and cutting contribution of the base guitar and appeasing sounds of the drums.
They have been playing together since summer of 2012, performing in some of the most relevant clubs in Rome and surroundings, furthermore participating to “LazioWave” festival at Isola Tiberina.
They decided immediately to register their debut album, “As Far As I Know”, with the contribution of Paul Kimble, formal bass player from Grant Lee Buffalo (a Los Angeles rock band highly appreciated by critics) in the role of producer and additional musician.
In addition to the previously mentioned Grant Lee Buffalo, Paul Kimble has been the producer of several bands for Slash/London Records (Warner Bros); he has produced the album “The Days of Our Nights” by the rock band Luna, for Elektra Records/Jericho (Warner Bros), he also has contributed as singer and multi-instrumentalist to the soundtrack for the film Velvet Goldmine, where he worked with artists the likes of Michael Stipe, Thom Yorke and Andy Mackay of Roxy Music (With whom Paul sang a duet in “Bitter’s End”).
Paul’s enthusiasm for the band lead him, beyond participating as a multi-instrumentalist during the album sessions, to make his huge talent available to play with the Dead Bouquet at The Spot Live Club (Marino, Rome), donating an unforgettable evening of rock and magic to the public.
The mastering has been provided by Joe Gastwirt, well-known mastering engineer, who has contributed to hundreds of Gold and Platinum Records for the likes of Bob Dylan (in “Time Out Of Mind”), Neil Young, Pearl Jam, Jerry Garcia, The Grateful Dead, Paul McCartney; nominated for a Grammy Award with “Pet Box Set” by The Beach Boys.
The registration sessions for “As Far As I Know” have taken place in Italy, at SoundClub Recording Studio; mixing has been done by Paul Kimble in Seattle, U.S.A.
