About

My name is Zach, I write and play music whenever I can. My main instrument is guitar, I do some key & synth stuff and can play drums a bit. 'Dgrey' is short for 'Dorian Grey', a combination of Oscar Wilde's character and Gandalf the Grey from Tolkien's 'Lord of the Rings' mythology.

    This is such an old recording I've been going back and trying to find the individual tracks to separate them for more of a proper mixdown. Vox is always one of the toughest part for me to get right during recording.

    @MetalRenard: Thanks for the tip I will give it a try. Been doing lots of layering to get around not having any real mastering software.

    @Andrew Waite1984: the switch from synthpop to metal/rock tune, I just want to get it more fluid and natural sounding. right now I hear two distinct pieces of music that are in the same key. glad you like it, I'm having fun jamming on this one, just trying to decide whether to keep whittling away at it or work on something new.

    great transition here I like the clean guitars bookending the song too. In comparison to some of your other songs this one seems noticeably lighter but no less melodic. I would love to hear more of your lead stylings throughout the piece. Nice job!
