Biography

There are multiple artists with this name:

1) Dragonwyck was an American psychedelic rock band formed in Cleveland, Ohio in 1969. They recorded an album locally in 1970 and tried to attract label attention without success. Before finally calling it quits in 1975, the band recorded two other albums’ worth of material as well as a single. The 2004 release of their self-titled debut album includes bonus tracks recorded by the band’s previous incarnation, named Sunrise (AKA The Sunrise).

In October 1969 Dragonwyk appeared on the circuit spurting its mystical psychedelic fire amongst the dance halls and clubs of North East Ohio. The obvious strength of the group was the Doors like voice of Bill Pettijohn and the sizzling guitar riffs of ex Mortycyans Tom Brehm while Jack Boessneck played drums, Mike Gerchak bass and Kenneth Staab mellotron. Dragonwyk’s notoriety grew incestuously in the Cleveland area only really rivaled by Morly Grey or the fuzz fuming Freeman Sound & Heavy Friends that had knocked them out of the Starshines Productions - Battle Of The Bands. (Freeman Sound & Heavy Friends was a flowerpower quintet that exalted wah wah pedal and breakpoint organ, acknowledged for putting out the heaviest version of Merle Travis’ “16 Tons”.
Dragonwyk now slightly more Prog put out a batch of recordings while operating as Sunrise which were largely ignored.
