Desert Dragon is an Award-winning band from Los Angeles, California formed by guitarist Greg Patnode. The Band released their 2nd album, EP ‘DESOLATION’ officially on September 01, 2012 featuring Billboard charting singles “Darkness Shines” and “Miles Away” produced by the legendary Ron Nevison (Producer/Engineer for Led Zeppelin, Bad Company, The Faces, Heart, Lynyrd Skynyrd).
In July 2014 they signed ex-White Wizzard singer, Joseph Michael (WITHERFALL,MIDNIGHT REIGN,EX-WHITE WIZZARD) as their new lead vocalist. In Aug 2014 the band went into the studio in Los Angeles to mix their new album with James “Jimbo” Barton (Producer/Mixer for QUEENSRŸCHE, RUSH, ERIC CLAPTON, METALLICA). The result is Desert Dragons' most polished release to date "Before The Storm". The band has shifted its focus from Blues to Hard Rock and Psychedelia. This shift has given the band a new direction and they have even revamped some songs from their first album (“Take it Easy Now”, “Save My World”, and “Desert Horizons” ) to give them more hard rock content.
