The Band's Story:

D.T.A is made of a bunch of guys who love and respect one another, and we all know that with love and respect a band can get somewhere, but of course it took a couple of years for us to find each other. The guys in the band also have to dream and follow their dreams with hard work, hoping that one day, their dreams can become a reality and we all know that if we don't dream, we die. It's that simple.

I still remember so vividly when I received a phone call from someone telling me that he was trying to put a band together and he'd like me to be the drummer and he said that he heard from some people that I had just arrived from New York and that I was also looking for a bunch of serious and talented guys to start a band. Well, I guess moments like that cannot be forgotten.

The next day we got together and I decided to give it a try and see if the guys were really up to the task. It took a couple of years full of misery and despair for me to finally put my foot down and say that the situation has gotten out of hand and certain people in the band have to go their separate way because they have become an obstacle and a huge burden and the band could not continue that way.

To make a long story short, Here we are today with our first CD (Cloudy Sky). We have also finished making our first video for our song Addict that won the admiration of all music lovers of all ages. The video is being shown on most TV stations. If you'd like to see it, contact the station you watch.

You know, making music is a wonderful thing but it's also a big responsibility and without being a great human being, you cannot create great music.

Truly Yours
