The folk pop scene is something new and exciting to the 21st Century.
It opens arms to bands like 50 Mile Ride
A fresh faced band making their way through the music industry, dominated by pop hits.
It is strange to believe that a band so young are influenced by some of the great singer song-writers, like Eric Clapton and John Lennon.
Original lyrics and raw sounds
There are 11 tracks available to stream on their Facebook and Reverbnation page.
It’s fresh sounding music, that lifts you up.
Certain songs are a once in a life time listen, but then something changes and all of a sudden you’re hitting repeat on the other four or five songs.
their music is enjoyable.
It’s a group of lads loving what they do, and it is expressed in the way they play and create their music.
With radio appearances and an increasing number of followers on their social networking pages, the band are gradually building a fan base for themselves.

“A night at the Hard Bean
The second act of the night was Daylen and the Drop D’s consisting of front-man and rhythm guitarist Daylen Orlick, lead guitarist Demitri Grivas, and bassist JJay Salter. They performed a set of mostly original musical with an occasional exception, On their RevernNation page, they describe their music as folk/folk rock/alternative which is a perfect description. Their songs tend to have a classic rock groove, contemporary folk melodies (like Dar Williams), and alternative style vocals. Given that they are each only 16, the thing that impressed me most is that they sound like a real band and not three individuals playing music. They are all good with their instruments, but Demitri is exceptionally good on guitar – both electric and acoustic.Great Lyrics, Good Vocals a fine concert and a must see”

“I don’t know how far they will make it or how successful they will be, but I do know that whatever success they may find will be well deserved.”

“Daylen & the Drop D
Nice singer/songwriter stuff - very earnest and honest. Obviously written from the heart. These tracks almost have a bit of a jazz feel at times,The lyrics are pretty great - I can only imagine that as these guys get more life experience, the lyrics will get even better. The guitar playing is really pretty as well (I especially liked music on "Stay With Me," which also had some nice vocal bits)..”
