D & M is a blues infused alternative pop band based out of Philadelphia, (think John Mayer meets Fun.) After meeting on the first day of college in the fall of 2009, lead singer Danny Fornasa and Matt Klahre decided to form a band, mixing their shared love of pop, blues, and rock and roll.

They dubbed the band D & M. It wasn’t the most shocking name, or the most eccentric on their list, but “D & M” told the world who they were in the most honest of ways and let the music take the focus. That it did.

After playing regionally throughout 2010 they went into the studio to record “Delawanna”, a five song EP. It was released on June 23rd and was featured on such notable outlets as AOL Music, Relix, AbsolutePunk, and many more. To support the release D & M teamed up with kickstarter.com to fan-fundraise for a national summer tour. This fan-funding project took them from coast to coast all summer, playing concerts in big cities, small cities, and even “Good Morning San Diego”.

To follow up “Delawanna” D & M released their newest record, “Wait For Me” on April 24, 2012 to critical acclaim. Recorded in Philadelphia, the band stays true to their roots, but expands their sound with help from producer Brandon Bost. It has garnered the attention of national media with favorable reviews featured on CMJ, AOL Spinner, Purevolume, MP3.com, and many more. The band plans to do an expansive 7-week national tour to support “Wait For Me” and bring the live show to fans around the country.

D & M’s sound draws influences from current artists such as John Mayer and Fun., and icons like The Band and The Beatles. Danny Fornasa is the group’s lead vocalist, acoustic guitar player, and main songwriter. His expansive vocal range allows the group to write dynamic songs that keep the listener enticed track after track. Matt Klahre, the lead guitarist, returns the group’s modern pop stylings to their blues roots with melodic guitar lines and searing blues solos.
