"Dead or Alive" was recorded and produced by Dran Michael in various parts of Tennessee and released in Los Angeles, CA. As Dran would say during the process "this is turning into a rock album!" and it delivers. Guitar driven, sexy and fun. "Buda Negra" was a bonus track on the album, but with it's haunting vibes and latin sound, it was optioned for a music video by writer and director Amy Campione (American Girl, Snares of the Devil). The music video and the album went on to win 3 Artists in Music Awards and best music video in the Bare Bones Intl. Film Festival.
