Wake up

Anesthesia is the musical collaboration between founder James Daly “ JaDa" (guitars, keys, ambience, programming), Phil Owen (guitars, ambience, programming, engineering) and Jeremiah Dalesio (production, engineering). Originating in Denver, Colorado, the band formed in 2007 through a season of focused creativity and experimentation. JaDa began working on a project with a number of sketches written from coupling a Rhodes with electronic beats, but the concept soon broadened to include live drums and rhythmic and textural guitars. For all the different elements used, the debut album, Wake Up, comes across as a complete journey: one that has a grand entrance and an appropriate exit. A journey that has peaks and valleys but also a destination for the listener.
