Bluphoria will be performing album tracks including their newly released single “Columbia” (which AMP Music calls an “atmospheric opus”); “Ain’tGotMe”(which Atwood calls “groovy, drawing and all consuming”); “WalkThroughTheFire” (“captivating psychedelic, indie rock influence” – Backward Noise); and “SetMeUp” ( “a cathartic journey” – Melodic Magazine).
Working with GRAMMY® award-winning producer Mark Needham (Fleetwood Mac, Imagine Dragons, Mt. Joy, The 1975) at both the famous East Iris Studios in Berry Hill section of Nashville and his personal studio, lead vocalist and guitarist Reign LaFreniere says the album“really came to life because of the help [they] got from Needham.” Adding, “Most of the songs we wrote in the last three years were written during the pandemic, so a lot of the songs on this album kind of reflect that feeling as well. We wanted to make a project where the whole crux of it was to capture a peaceful melancholy. Most of our songs are upbeat and driven by major chords but at the same time the lyrics tell a sadder story which was very reflective of our experiences during covid – trying to make the best out of a bad situation. Sonically, this album is a much more mature version of our previous projects.” Needham adds, “[Bluphoria is] a great young band with instinctive pop sensibilities combined with a cool edginess and rawness.”
Now based in Nashville, Bluphoria is an alternative rock band with blues rock and psychedelic rock influences. Formed in 2019, the band hails from Eugene, Oregon and is fronted by Reign LaFreniere, 23 (lead vocals, lead guitar) along with Dakota Landrum, 20 (rhythm guitar, background vocals) Rex Wolf, 22 (bass, background vocals) and Dani Janae, 21 (drums, background vocals).
Bluphoria began playing together in their sophomore year at the University of Oregon and was signed to EDGEOUT Records/UMe/UMG in early 2021.
