The Singhs live, tonight, in NY

Dragonfly Band Changes Name to The Singhs
Launches New Album— Supersaturated

Performances Announced: New York City 7/23 At Sullivan Hall
and Boston 7/31 at Church

Redstar Entertainment, an independent music label, today announced that The Singhs, formerly known as Dragonfly, are launching their newest album, entitled Supersaturated. This release is the band’s third album and is the first to debut in the U.S. market. The album will be available for sale on iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby, among other online and retail outlets.

Originally assembled as Dragonfly in 2001 by lead singer Miki Singh and renowned Boston guitarist Peter Parcek, the group has been together since 2001 and includes veteran keyboardist and DJ Brother Cleve (The Del Fuegos, Combustible Edison), drummer Steve Scully (James Taylor, Juliana Hatfield, Letters to Cleo), and bassist Marc Hickox (Peter Parcek, Trio, Lucky Stereo). Previous releases include the double album The Edge of the World (2001) and Blind (2003).

The primarily Boston-based band has arranged, recorded, and performed at venues all over the world, including Morocco, The Maldives, India, France, The Netherlands, French West Indies, and the United States. Supersaturated was primarily recorded in the West Indies, with final mixes and mastering done in Boston and New York City. A three-year long writing and recording project, the twelve new tracks span pop, rock and funk in an organic and layered sound produced by platinum-disc winning producers Ducky Carlisle, as well as guest producer Jeff Taylor, known for his work with Prince, Janet Jackson, and many other artists.

The Singhs will be performing on July 23rd at 8:30 pm at Sullivan Hall in New York City located at 214 Sullivan Street between West 3rd and Bleeker in Greenwich Village. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased by calling 866-468-7619 or online at

In June, the band performed along with the Pakistani band, Junoon at a Peace Concert in Srinigar, the capital of Kashmir, an area that has been in a near civil war state for the last 15 years. The concert was organized and sponsored by the non-profit South Asia Foundation, and was part of the inauguration of the Institute of Kashmir Studies at Kashmir University.

On July 13th The Singhs also performed at the French Bastille Day celebrations at an outdoor event in New York City sponsored by the French government.
