Longtime musical collaborators Dirk and Rahul were looking for a more technically challenging project. Thanks to the information superhighway, contact was ultimately made with Jonathan, and the journey began. Having completed several works and playing multiple shows throughout the Bay Area, the trio decided to add another voice to the ensemble. Drawing from a deep well of talent, they decided to bring on Dan, AKA Danny New Notes, on keys. Desert of the Real can now be found melting faces and blowing minds far and wide.
