Tyler "Kouqj" Garrett || Bass & Vox
When every mainstream band you hear sounds identical, the production of their newest release, Deep | Alive, resurrects the true meaning of the alternative genre. Hailing from Lancaster, PA, Paradrei reflects the upfront anger stated clearly by the 90’s grunge, punk, and noise bands. With a strong focus on heavy grooves, complex dynamics, and raw energy, Paradrei has brought a new life to live performance in Maryland and Pennsylvania.
Since 2011, Paradrei has pushed each of their members to the limit as far as song writing, work ethic, and stage presence goes and the band's first full length album, 'Deep | Alive', is a direct representation of just that. Their songs reveal a hidden desire to cope and heal mental illness while allowing each other to release anger, sadness and other emotions stemming from anxiety and depression.
‘Deep | Alive' was released on April 29th accompanied by a sold out show at Metro Gallery in Baltimore. Since 2011, they have also released two other E.P.s, ‘The Black the Sun E.P.’ and ‘In Threes’ which was a five track acoustic E.P.
