The DLC (DeFade / Lo Castro) Project is the next phase of a musical collaboration that features the composing and performance talents of Francesco Lo Castro, Eric DeFade, and Tony DePaolis. The group released a trio effort in early 2013 entitled While We Hope and Dream. The recording was well received by critics and music lovers alike for its intimacy and melody-driven introspection. After completing a highly successful U.S. tour in the spring of 2013 (including appearances at Trumpets Jazz Club & Restaurant, Black Fox Lounge, and James Street Gastropub & Speakeasy), the trio immediately began production on this new project. With the addition of Tom Wendt on drums, Into the Unknown well represents the conceptual evolution of these extremely talented and unique musicians.
The DLC Project Into the Unknown was released on April 1, 2014 under the Flocastro Records label.
The collective music experiences of DLC Project have brought them to a place where the only place to go is 'into the unknown'; consider venturing there and enjoy the trip as much as they have.
