Three-time Grammy Award-winning producer and Berklee alumnus Dawaun Parker ‘05 introduces Phil Beaudreau and his debut album, Ether. The pair’s first collaboration, “Lost,” garnered the attention of Dr. Dre, who, after hearing it, flew Beaudreau and Parker to Eminem’s studio in Detroit to work on new music. Says Beaudreau, “I never expected there to be any real interest this soon in the game. It’s incredibly encouraging to know that a legend like Dre cares about my work.” Beaudreau draws inspiration from the likes of Pink Floyd, the Beach Boys, Thom Yorke, and Kanye West.

Rocco DeLuca

Rocco DeLuca’s self-titled release is his second album for 429 Records and his fourth LP overall. Produced by seven-time Grammy-winner Daniel Lanois, DeLuca builds upon the brooding and haunting mood of his last solo album, 2011’s Drugs ‘N’ Hymns. DeLuca recently hosted recording sessions in his East Hollywood bedroom with a number of notable local musicians, “local folks and family,” including drummer Oliver Charles (Ben Harper), guitarist and vocalist Christian Letts (Edward Sharpe), bassist Seth-Ford Young (Edward Sharpe), violinist Odessa Jorgensen, bassist Gus Siefert (The Black Keys, Beck), vocalist Soko, and drummers Josh Collazo (Edward Sharpe) and Jonathan Wright. Whereas Drugs ‘n’ Hymns was notable for its spare, quiet intensity and attention to the darker side of things, DeLuca revels in a spirited spontaneity and intimacy no doubt achieved through many an inspired (and oftentimes unacknowledged) home recording session among friends.
