ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dragonfly 13 is the creation of veteran musician/composer/producer Jeremy Bar-Illan. The band finds the foundation of its sound in the roots of rhythm and blues. Inspired by classic funk, r&b and jazz fusion, Dragonfly 13's music echoes the funky groove so prevalent during that era. With a dynamic horn section, sweet Hammond B3 Organ and phenomenal rhythm section, the band presents a classic sounding set of original songs which display musicianship that will keep you riveted.

This album's songs will be a part of your everlasting memories with their timeless melodies and lyrics. They are perfect tunes to help usher in good times. From sweet grooves for a drive with the windows down to funkified stuff to get down with on the dance floor. The album's title, "Let The Music Bring You Back" is what this album will do in more ways than one.

The album comes of the heels of an award winning single, "Hypnotize," having captured Best Funk Song 2015 from the Akademia Music Awards. The musicianship in the band is tremendous featuring a group of up and coming young music stars who present over the top performances here.

Dragonfly 13 hails from New York City. Producer and composer, Jeremy Bar-Illan has tapped into the roots of his musical influences over decades of participating in the New York City music scene. Having grown up on the upper west side of Manhattan, surrounded by some of the most illustrious musicians of all time, the inspirations were numerous. His passion for visiting Woolworth's on Broadway and 79th St as a boy in the early 1970s to pick random records from the 45 bin would introduce him to the rich sounds of the 70s Mowtown and all the R&B Soul and funk that was groundbreaking at the time. With more experiences and influences garnered as a performer and music producer through the 1980s and forward Jeremy's career in music has explored multiple genres coming full circle to Dragonfly 13, a funkified groove orchestra.

Dragonfly 13's Sweet Funk sound is a new trend setting funk movement. You will notice influences from Burt Bacharach to Marvin Gaye with the big band sound of Chicago all rapped up in one in the songs on this album. Enjoy!
