Silver Springs, MD Progressive Rock band, Deluge Grander has recently released a brilliant Prog instrumental LP, titled, ‘Oceanarium’ showcasing exceptional musicality with a special nod to band member Dan Britton for his outstanding compositional prowess throughout its eight tracks and stellar musicianship behind the keyboard.

When I was a young guy, set on a path to discover new music in order to better appreciate the art’s creative process and those that created it, I stumbled upon the artist Jobriath. Underage, I managed to find my way into one his Hollywood shows at the famous Troubadour on Santa Monica Blvd. Sipping on my Heineken, [Tsk, tsk.. Naughty me!], the show begins and my life would be forever altered… Much in the same way, seeing Bowie perform as Ziggy Stardust altered my world. Jobriath, ... read more
