Emerging from the electrifying and audacious heart of New York City in 2008, Silvarose has been working diligently to stand among the best of what hard rock has to offer.
Founder and front man Dean James Silva has been playing music and penning songs since he was twelve years old. At the intrepid age of eighteen, Dean decided to hitchhike to California in pursuit of a musical career and the ultimate rock and roll lifestyle. Dean’s ambitions were stalled and knocked off course by drug addiction and a wild west coast lifestyle
until he met Lee Nelson (drums) and Brian McKeever (guitar).
Lee had grown familiar with the New York City circuit since beginning his professional drum career at thirteen, playing former local legendary clubs CBGB’s and The Limelight. s of Rock Festival in Holland featuring performances by rock icons Ozzy Osbourne and Iron Maiden. Most recently, in September 2009, Lee played the opening segment for MTV’s Video Music Awards with Capitol Records pop-star Katy Perry and Aerosmith’s Joe Perry at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Casey King, founder of The Guitars for Life Research Foundation calls Lee “one of the world’s best exhibition drummers” for his high energy and always entertaining live drum playing.
Lead guitarist Brian McKeever has been mastering his craft since the aspiring age of eleven, inspired by the innovative playing styles of Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmore, Randy Rhoades and Jimmy Page.
