Fresh Hops is a 4 piece original jam band from Northwest Indiana. The band formed in March 2008 as a musical improvisational outlet among friends. Now Fresh Hops has evolved into a captivating, high energy live act. The group has seen numerous line ups and instrumentations that have lead to an ecclectic mix of sounds and atmospheres. As writers and performers Fresh Hops constantly blurs the lines between genres and style, often during the course of a single song. That “anything goes” attitude has tranlated to a stage show that remains fresh and fun from show to show. The realization that jazz, classic soul, bluegrass, classical, metal and progressive jam rock can all shake hands and play nice has guided them to create remarkable tunes from an ever-expanding palette.
Belief in the manifestation,
And dedication to the process.
These are words Dartanyan Kane lives by. Being born in Texas and raised in hippie communes across the United States, folk and alternative rock music have been merged together. From 13 Dartanyan’s been performing everywhere from California to Indiana; spreading his raspy, yet smooth singing voice and soulful guitar riffs across the continent. With a voice like any of the greatest rockstars, passionate messages interwoven into each song, and his ever changing guitar style, he has been able to shape an entirely unique sound of his own.
Based out of Phoenix Arizona, Dartanyan Kane’s EP “The Harsh Mello” was released 2019 on all platforms, along with a music video that reached 10’s of thousands of people. With two more projects online, another EP on its way out of production, and a full length album in the works, Dartanyan is steadily releasing new music.
