Dan Reed, formerly of 'Dan Reed Network', (DRN) will soon be releasing his third solo album entitled ‘Transmission’. This collection of songs was composed and recorded in Prague and takes on a more live feel and energy than his previous two studio releases ‘Signal Fire’ and ‘Coming Up for Air’. Reed has always had a passion for groups like ‘Bad Company’, ‘Pink Floyd’, and ‘Fleetwood Mac’ and ‘Transmission’ takes it’s aim at realising this type of in your face, honest rock production. Besides tackling all the vocals, Dan performed all the guitar and keyboard work, performing live in the studio beside famed drummer Robert Ikiz from Turkey and bassist Bengan Jonasson from Sweden. 


This collection of songs primarily takes a look at the dark side of the human condition and tries to make sense of trying to find light in the midst of the chaos. This will be Dan’s second album financed through Pledge Music through those who support his music and reached 100 percent of it's goal in less than 2 weeks from launching the campaign.  


Reed’s second solo CD, 'Signal Fire’ released in early 2013, was a collection of thought provoking tracks, co-produced by Reed and Rob Daiker (Meredith Brooks/Katy Perry/Fame Riot). Signal Fire represented a step toward a more edgier sound than his 2010 solo effort 'Coming Up for Air', yet still held on to the intention of finding hope in a world riddled with great hypocrisy and great hope.


While 'Coming Up for Air' was composed in Jerusalem and Northern India during 2007/2008 and represented Reed's quest for insight on religious conflicts and making peace with inner demons, 'Signal Fire' took a more pointed look at the world's political/social/environmental conflicts. With ‘Transmission’ Dan decided to leave political statements somewhat behind and focus more on the conflict within the human heart and soul. 


Dan also released a solo acoustic album entitled ‘In Between the Noise’ in 2014, as well as a DRN compilation 2 disc set called ‘Anthology’ which covered both previously released DRN songs, along with 4 new live tracks from the Network’s recent reunion shows and unreleased B-Sides. 'Anthology was also funded through Pledge Music and their fans. 

Dan Reed Network was signed to Polygram in 1988 by Derek Shulman, famed A+R man who signed ‘Bon Jovi’. Managed by Bill Graham and Q-Prime later, DRN played opening act on European tours for Bon Jovi, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie and Midnight Oil, and performed in America with Run DMC and toured with UB40. Selling nearly 2 million albums worldwide, DRN was part of the funk rock movement and released three albums with Polygram between 1989 and 1992. ‘Transmission’ stands as a good example of where Dan can take the groove in these times, both musically and lyrically.

Reed took a long hiatus from the music business in early 2003 and spent 4 years in Northern India and Jerusalem, living in a Tibetan Monastery and studying religions while in the Middle East. Coming back to music in 2009 he now performs extensively throughout Europe and the United States, both with his solo band and DRN and has in recent years performed at the ‘Sweden Rock Festival’ and England’s ‘Download Festival’ twice. 


With ‘Transmission’ Dan hopes that getting back to the roots of live performance is a positive direction in a world addicted to canned music, drum machines and auto-tuned vocals.

This is the latest edition to Eagle Records’ series of releases exploring the archives of the Jeff Healey Band. In December 1993 the band returned home to Toronto to perform several nights at The Horseshoe Tavern. These shows were near the end of the tour to support the band’s then latest release “Feel This”. Alongside the classic trio the band was joined by a keyboards player and two backing vocalists for these shows which gave a real energy to the performance, whilst in contrast the middle of the concert is given over to a three song acoustic set before the full band reappears for an incendiary finale.

Gävle in the end of the 1990´s, haven´t either failed to fulfil all expectations or deliver the goods.

influences from medieval folk music".
The fairytale that The STORYTELLER started to tell fifteen years ago, seems to be a never ending story - so hold
on! Because this is the time for the fantastic continuation!
"One Last Stand" is the first single and video from their upcoming new album "Sacred Fire" which will be released
on Wild Kingdom/ Sound Pollution on February 27th, 2015.

Mikael Erlandsson from Gothenburg is one of the best singers/ songwriters in Sweden today. Beside LAD he has since 2006 been the front man in the Swedish super group Secret Service on live tours all over the world.

He has recorded four successful solo albums and his Japanese record company together with XTC Productions came up with the idea of putting him together with the fantastic guitar player Andy Malecek from the successful German hard rock band Fair Warning for an album project.

Mikael and Andy were both hooked by the idea and a plan for the album began to grow. Ian Haugland, Mic Michaeli and John Leven of Europe-fame were asked if they were interested to join, which they did and the band LAST AUTUMN'S DREAM was born!

Their self titled debut album resembled the best Scandinavian melodic rock heritage, but also added a distinctive Fair Warning influence coming from Malecek’s guitar playing.

The band lost 3/5's of their members due to the comeback of Europe. So from their second album great musicians like bassist Marcel Jacob (Talisman) tragically died and was replaced by Nalley Påhlsson (Treat, Therion) and finally drummer Jamie Borger (Talisman, Treat, Secret Service) joined the band.

Andy Malecek unfortunately decided to leave the band in 2014 because of personal reasons and is now replaced by Peter “Pac” Söderström, a genius guitar player that earlier used to add rhythm guitars to the band’s previous albums.

Album number 11 “Level Eleven” will be released in Japan in December 2013 and in Europe in February 2013 and proposes as usual the combination of classic rock references with modern sound.


All albums recorded at XTC Studios in Stockholm.

Executive producer UlfWahlberg. (Secret Service)
