Davenport Rex is a Motor City duo focused on progressive compositions that develop themes, explore alternative chord progressions and song forms. They strive for accessible melodies and meaningful lyrics, and they encourage you to listen multiple times to get the most from the songs. The band members are Dave Gillespie and Jim Murphy (featuring vocal work from Danielle Blanchard), and they go back to the Music Program at Michigan State University. They have been writing and playing music for many years - They work slowly with a lot of attention to arrangements, instrumentation and performances.
Progressive pop / rock compositions. Rock band foundation with additional synthetic and symphonic instrumentation. Accessible and complex. These ten tracks are pretty diverse ranging from guitar based rock to cinematic orchestrations to simple acoustic and vocal arrangements.
The Cruelest Animal has been a work in progress for Drummer / Guitarist / Producer Alex Crane since 2009. The band started as a recording project featuring guest performances by members of Intronaut, National Sunday Law, and The Great Wall. The music is inspired by a wide variety of styles including classic prog rock groups like King Crimson and Pink Floyd, as well as Trip Hop acts like Massive Attack, Dj Shadow, and Radiohead. Aspects of technical and spacey influences are blended into a sound rooted in early 90s metal.
The album Soothing Rays of Eternity represents a leap forward creatively. With the addition of Matt Boylan on bass (former Bear Baiting and Cuneiform), and use of Ableton Live looping software, what was once a recording project has developed into a live two-piece band.
The album is structured abnormal rhythmic cycles and features drums and bass as primary elements. The rhythm section is accentuated by heavy, yet spacey guitars, keyboards, and vocals. The song Unleash the Swine features David Timnick of Intronaut on Tablas, and Derek Donley of Bereft and National Sunday Law on Vocals.
Soothing Rays of Eternity was self recorded and mixed in our rehearsal space in 2016 and was released via Bandcamp on April 21, 2017.

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
