SEVEN SISTERS ROAD
This site is a Live Work in Progress
It's not quite finished, but it's June 3rd - the release date of 'Fight Another Day' so...
Welcome to the NEW Seven Sisters Road
In this day of direct social media interaction with the members of Dan Reed Network, a reunited band, an official website, a new album 25 years after the last one, and annual US, UK & European tours, why is this site here?
Once upon a time, there was no internet. Finding out what happened to Dan Reed Network after 1993 was next to impossible. And even when there was an internet in its infancy, things didn't get that much easier.
Seven Sisters Road was born out of a love for the music of DRN, and to capture their history and impact in one place. With a lot of research, I was able to piece together a lot of the pieces, and 7sr became a place to look up that band you remembered. I like to think I played a role in the history of DRN and keeping the memory alive.
Seven Sisters Road has the most complete discography - albums, singles, promos, bootlegs - when you had to find cassette tapes at dodgy market stalls, etc
The website sat mostly untouched for many years, except for a few updates when Dan Reed came out of hibernation in 2008. I thought many times about updating it and bringing it into the 21st century, but time has a way of getting in the way of things.
So, with 2 weeks to go before the release of 'Fight Another Day', I decided it was time to do my own impossible. Rebuild the site from scratch.
To those folks who visited the site over the past 15 years, Thank you. To the band, each one of you that has given me your time, THANK YOU. I have been fortunate enough to be at soundchecks, sat in the studio during the recording of 'Fight Another Day' and Dan's solo albums. I have filmed many shows by Dan, DRN, Brion, and Blake's bands. Dan Reed is the godfather of my daughter.
I haven't decided if this will be a consistently updated site with news yet. In 2016, we chat with the band at their shows, interact with them on social media, and dodgy cassette tapes are replaced by Youtube videos 5 minutes after the show ends. I should know, I do all of those. I posted the original reunion announcement video I made, at 4am after Dan's show in Portland.
Anyway, enough of this. Enjoy the site. I hope you find something you like.
