FireDean went straight from High School to a job on an oil rig in The Gulf of Mexico. While there he attended a Pentecostal church in Berwick, Louisiana and his voice was brought to the attention of the choir director. An audition followed, along with instructions to get in the back row and sing quietly. It wasn't long however, before he was on tour performing his own compostitions on stages all over the US and Europe and recording them with Warren Bruleigh (Lou Reed, The Violent Femmes) at Electric Lady. Other highlights include performances alongside Clarence Greenwood (Citizen Cope), a featured performance at The Kennedy Center, and having one of his songs take home first prize ( a vintage Gretsch guitar) at the Millenium Music Conference in Boston.
When he's not coaching his son's soccer team; Daniel Weintraub runs an audio/video recording studio. Like the other two band members, it was originally based in Brooklyn until along with them, he moved operations to UpState NY . Like Jason, Daniel plays just about any instrument he can put his hands on . As a result he not only produces many other acts but frequently plays on their records.
Jason Broome originally met Daniel in New Delhi, India 22 years ago. He met FireDean in Washington DC 14 years ago. As a guitar player, he and Daniel have played in a succession of bands. When FireDean went looking for a studio in Brooklyn to record new material, it was Jason who recommended Daniel, not knowing that soon he'd be joining them both to play it live. Like Daniel, Jason is a multi-instumentalist, a Father, and far less stubborn than either of his bandmates.
