STARFIRE is Greg Pajer, Blake Paulson, Andrew James and Dairenn Lombard:
Greg Pajer has been playing guitar for over 20 years. He graduated from the Musicians Institute in Hollywood with a Commercial Music Degree. Pajer has been playing professionally; performing, recording, music directing, and touring with numerous bands, singers, and songwriters.
Drummer Blake Paulson holds a BA in Professional Music from the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. Paulson was awarded Berklee's distinguished Professional Music Achievement Award and has worked with artists from almost every major label and indie artists that have no desire to sign with a record label, artists who have sold 100 to 1,000,000 CDs and performers that have played small acoustic sets to jam packed arenas.
Andrew James has been playing bass professionally for more than a decade, and during that time, he has appeared in countless live shows, performed in numerous studio sessions, recorded a number of albums, traveled to many states, and rocked thousands of people worldwide on numerous stages.
On synthesizer keyboards, guitar, vocals, chief songwriter and band founder Dairenn Lombard has been writing, recording and performing for twenty-five years with two full-length albums under his belt and appearances throughout Southern California. His style ranges from soft rock in the style of Elton John or Billy Joel to urban-influenced rock like Lenny Kravitz all the way through to hard rock like Journey or Survivor.
Modern, yet retaining the accessibilityof Classic Rock and Pop--without the cliches or being childish--STARFIRE focuses on the sound of ballsy, groove-heavy drums (in the spirit of LED ZEPPELIN) and the perfect synergy of keys and edgy guitar (like VAN HALEN or EVANESCENCE). STARFIRE presents the alternative to "alternative" -- MELODIC ROCK.
