More about rock singing expert Draven Grey
From sharing the stage with high-profile artists in front of tens of thousands of people, to helping relatively unknown rock artists become amazing, music is a driving force in Draven’s life. He has opened for many Major Label acts, written music for film and television, and entertained concert crowds in the tens of thousands. He believes that music holds the power to bare one’s soul, comfort the broken, connect divided worlds, and bring a voice to the voiceless. Music is his passion, and using its power to change lives is his craft.
Draven was a music director for several organizations throughout the 90’s, and played keyboards for Organic Recording Artist, Human, in the mid 90’s. He has written music for Games, Film and Television, Wayfarer Infinity, as well as produced, recorded, mixed, mastered, and played for, artist releases across the world. He has a long history in the music profession and in helping other artists realize their dreams.
For many years, he worked an Artist Development Specialist and Rock Band Success Coach for Rockstar Mindset LLC, through MindRock Records LLC, both coaching bands in their career and developing self-study courses that do the same. In 2009, Draven joined with Alex Staropoli of the band, Rhapsody of Fire, to create powerful resources and online coaching programs covering all aspects of creating a successful and long-lasting music career for rock bands.
In 2013, he was named “The Voice of Old Colorado City” for his voice-over work. And in 2015, he was honored with “The Best of Thumbtack” for the feedback he was getting online for his singing lessons through Rock Singing Lessons.
Draven has also worked as a freelance recording, mixing, and mastering engineer, a film and television composer, and a studio musician. He also has training in Business Management, Music Business, Marketing, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Neuro-Associative Conditioning, Relational-Counseling, Leadership Principles, Nonviolent Communication, Life-Coaching, and Creativity Coaching.
Draven’s work has been described as passionate and sometimes brutally honest, but most of all, he is a trusted guide. He helps you define your dreams, and then makes your dreams his own. With his help, you examine yourself deeply, articulate your goals, and lay out a clear path to get there. With hard work and a high sense of integrity, Draven has placed himself as a friend, guide, and encouraging voice in an often cruel industry.
