When art can’t be pigeonholed or pinned down, it elevates the very medium itself. Dead Defined thrives on that sort of unpredictability, standing confidently at a crossroads between anthemic hard rock infectiousness and thought-provoking technically-charged industrial pop. Think a cross between the mind-numbing musical malevolence of american super group Filter and Alice in Chains' timeless irresistibility, and you’re halfway there. This is the vision of singer/songwriter Craig Ewan (ex-Shadows in Red) and previous driving force of Toronto hard rock band Waveline, Dead Defined's sophomore single Unwholey represents metallic industrial rock evolution in its purest form.

"Industrial rock ain't dead! Dead Defined are putting a modern spin on the genre, and evoking the spirit of Stabbing Westward, Depeche Mode and Econoline Crush." Soundsphere Magazine - Hull, United Kingdom (England) 

"Unwholey" is the sophomore single release for the Industrial/Pop/Rock group 'Dead Defined'. This project is lead by Singer/Songwriter Craig Ewan, based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. 
'Dead Defined' and their debut single 'I Fear Nothing'  (released March.20.2018) has found radio play in Canada, USA, Germany, Australia, Spain, United Kingdom and the Netherlands. The independent rock bands debut single reached over 50,000 song views via Youtube in just 9 months and thousands of streams via Spotify, Soundcloud, Google Play and Apple Music.
 
"Unwholey" is a play on words and is also best described through the chorus of the song. "Hollow, I've never felt so alone, but now you're here, I'm so lonely in here, I'm so lonely in here, I'm unWHOLE-y, I'm so lonely in here" This song was written soon after the unexpected passing of Craig's father on May.21.2018. 
 
The single "Unwholey" is now officially released to all digital platforms. Release date: January, 18, 2019.
The official music video shot by Camozzi Films, will coincide with the single release date of January, 18, 2019.

He was a very quiet child and very an introverted person. His passion was music and it’s still. His mother was a classical guitarist, but he didn’t show any interest in learning or playing guitar. He has started learning to play guitar when he was almost twenty years old. His friend convinced him into that, he showed him four chords and that was it. With that four chords, Sasha composed his first song. He was impressed by that and until today, Sasha has composed over four hundred songs. Some of his songs can be heard on music social platform Soundcloud, Spotify, Deezer, Amazon, iTunes and so on, but a very few on YouTube. In the year 2005, he and his friend, created the band Dharma. His friend met those days Paul Godfrey from worldwide band Morcheeba. His friend first didn’t know who is he (Paul Godfrey) or who is Morcheeba. Paul gave to his friend a business card, and he showed to Sasha that card. Sasha was excited, and he said to the friend whom he met. A coincidence was that his friend met Paul Godfrey again the other day. And he showed to the Paul their song Winter’s Day (a.k.a. Afterglow). Guess Paul liked that song, so he wrote the lyrics for Afterglow. But Dharma didn’t last long, because of different music taste in the band. So they simply split the band. Sasha went on his solo music career. He has released the songs like Kiss Me, Moonrise, Indian Summer. Beside music, he writes also poetry. He has also released two poetry books and four e-books. Poems are about social problems, love, pain, sadness, sorrow, death and also about the crypto world… He wrote also a fairy tale for the children. Besides guitar, he plays also bass guitar, he sings and writes lyrics. His music influence are Radiohead, Muse, Nirvana, The Vines, Royal Blood, QOTSA, Suede, Placebo, The Kills, Jack White and many other bands.

Dear BBS, 

My partner and I would love our music shared with the listeners of BBS.

Our story;

In 2015 I saw a tweet from an NYC artist named Whitney Tai. She was promoting her debut album. I opened the link, hit play, and I heard the most beautiful voice. On a lark, I sent a private message to this talented stranger and she responded. We quickly built a quaint and intimate relationship around our love of music and life.

Coincidently, we were both going through very serious personal challenges. Failed personal relationships, a cancer diagnosis, death of a close relatives, and pets. We stayed in touch weekly. As good fortune would have it, she moved to Los Angeles in early 2018. When Whitney and I finally met in person we immediately felt we’d create beautiful and unique music. And that’s what we’ve achieved.

Whitney and I have just released an EP and are receiving an amazing response internationally. We are proud to be the feature cover story of The Aquarian a music publication currently on new-stands all over New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. In addition, Australia’s Happy Magazine is  running a 2 part feature on us.

The release features the title track "Flowers By The Roadside" and a haunting, alt-electro version of the classic holiday song, “Silent Night”. Flowers By The Roadside is a Folktronica (Simon & Garfunkel meets Goldfrapp) piece was co-written with Los Angeles based singer/songwriter, Whitney Tai, composer/guitarist, Michael Trainor and produced by #1 Billboard Producer, Tim Janssens.

Our hope is that Flowers By The Roadside empowers and comforts the individual who feels they’ve no voice in society. It’s a gentle reminder that the individual is visible, beautiful, and capable of change in an increasingly challenging civilization, where people's voice and basic human rights are disappearing.

Both tracks are FCC CLEAN and registered with BMI. Attached you will find our press release, photo, and below downloadable Soundcloud & Bandcamp links.
