November 20th, 2015 – Drayter, the pop/rock band from Dallas, Texas, will release its debut studio album “NINE” December 18th via Platinum Jack Entertainment. Recorded in Los Angeles, California and Mandeville, Louisiana, the album was produced by heavy-weight producers Matt Squire (One Direction, Arianna Grande, Good Charlotte, Selena Gomez Panic! At The Disco) and Dave Fortman (Evanescence, Godsmack, Slipknot). The album consists of 8 tracks, ranging from songs about perseverance and overcoming personal tragedy (“Mother Says”) bullying and acceptance (“Not Alone”) to emotionally charged anthems (“Run”, “Criminal”). The album will be available for pre-order via iTunes on November 27th. The first single “Run” is available now via iTunes (mastered for iTunes) and all digital retailers along with a ‘behind the scenes’ making of the song http://tinyurl.com/q3zze64.
Drayter is comprised of the high-energy duo of Liv Miner and Cole Schwartz.
The album’s title “NINE” is based around a topographical puzzle, whereby the puzzle is an intellectual challenge to connect dots by drawing four straight, continuous lines that pass through each of the nine dots, and never lifting the pencil from the paper. The puzzle is easily resolved, but only by drawing the lines outside the confines of the square area defined by the nine dots themselves. The phrase “thinking outside the box” is a restatement of the solution strategy. The puzzle only seems difficult because people commonly imagine a boundary around the edge of the dot array. The heart of the matter is the unspecified barrier that people typically perceive. The album is about thinking different and seeing things from a new perspective.
