Blues Rock Band Gary Dranow and the Manic Emotions Reveal their New Song “Day I Was Born”

Gary Dranow and the Manic Emotions just released their latest release, “Day I Was Born,” from their upcoming debut album, ‘Destiny Road.’ It’s a soulful and bluesy tune that showcases the band’s top-notch musicianship. The song is a tongue-in-cheek reflection on Gary’s birth, and it features warm and comforting vocals that are backed by lush strings, keyboard, and stunning guitar work. The track’s classic blues and rock traditions are reflected in its arrangements, which take inspiration from the likes of Stevie Ray Vaugn, Van Morrison, and Eric Clapton.

One of the most remarkable things about “Day I Was Born” is that it was recorded live in the studio. Gary Dranow had a bet with the band that he could play all his solos without repeating a lick, and they all paid him $20 when they finished recording. This liveliness and spontaneity add to the song’s charm, making it a standout track in the blues rock genre.

Gary Dranow and the Manic Emotions is a Park City, Utah-based classic rock band that creates music for the square pegs. Gary Dranow, the bandleader, turned to music to help him cope with bipolar disorder and the effects of a stroke. The band’s forthcoming album, Destiny Road, will be released in early 2023, and all tracks will be released as singles leading up to its release. The album features the talents of Sherm Tate on bass and vocals, Marty Steinberg and Jethro DeFries on drums, the brilliant Jerry Manfredi on bass and musical direction, and Tommy Mars on keyboards.

“Day I Was Born” is a must-listen for fans of blues rock and classic rock alike. It’s a refreshing take on the genre that is sure to captivate listeners with its soulful vocals, intricate arrangements, and lively energy.
