DAKOTA KOLLECTIVE


WE FORMED DAKOTA KOLLECTIVE WITH MY FRIENDS PHIL CARR AND DONNY McCRACKEN IN 2014.

WE ARE ALL SINGER-SONGWRITERS AND THE IDEA WAS TO HELP EACH OTHER TO MAKE OUR OWN SONGS STAND OUT.

WE DIDN'T WANT TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME ON TECNIQUES SO BASICALLY WE ARRANGED, RECORDED AND SHOT A VIDEO OF EACH SONG ALL IN ONE DAY. 

WE WORKED WELL TOGETHER IN A FLOW STATE AND ALL IT TOOK WAS A CASE OF BEER.

EACH SINGS THEIR OWN SONGS AND THE OTHER TWO PROUDLY COLLABORATE ON ACTION.
