Edge of World
Boston-based Dragonfly is a 5-piece band that is also a musical expedition. From Amsterdam to Morocco, and Bombay to Paris, the band concocts a heady mix of exoticism, funk, rock, and pop in what has been described as 'intelligent and emotional songs, fronted by Singh's distinctive and intimate vocals, and backed by a hugely capable and versatile band that can effortlessly move from quiet and moody ballads to anthemic rockers, from engagingly mysterious grooves to dance/funk numbers'. Dragonfly released it's first album 'The Edge of the World' in 2003 on Sony Music in India. Dragonfly is one of the few rock bands to be featured on Channel V, MTV India and MTV Desi. 'Edge' was also released in the UK (via UMG) and the US to excellent reviews and strong airplay in the US college radio market. 2005 saw the release in India of the band's second album, 'Blind' which blends traditional Indian instruments with the band's high-energy rock and funk sound. In addition, the band worked with a number of top asian remix artists to create a bonus CD of indo-influenced lounge and dance remixes that was released with 'Blind'. The band is currently releasing the album in Europe and the US in 2006. Originally assembled in 2001 by lead singer/songwriter Miki Singh and reknowned Boston blues guitarist Peter Parcek,. The band is rounded out by the veteran keyboardist and DJ Brother Cleve (The Del Fuegos, Combustible Edison), drummer Steve Scully (James Taylor, Juliana Hatfield, Letters to Cleo), and bassist Marc Hickox (Peter Parcek Trio, Lucky Stereo).
