Biography

In the studio, The Mad Conductor is a duo - Chris Tray, former singer, songwriter, and front man from No-Cash, the Nazareth Pa. punk band, and Dan McKinney, keyboard player from The Original Sins, the Jim Weider Band, and countless studio sessions.

Chris writes and delivers all the rhymes, and comes up with the initial musical ideas for the songs, often supplying a bass line or guitar part. Dan takes the bare skeleton that Chris provides, and fleshes it out, programming drum beats, samples, organ, piano & synth parts, etc.

The result is music that’s hip-hop and rap, but isn’t afraid to bring in any other element that pops into Dan & Chris’s minds - punk, jazz, psychedelic. The recording process is almost a stream of consciousness approach for some elements, with first takes often being the tracks that define the direction of the music.

The group has recently morphed into a real, touring band, and contributions from the new band members will show up on the new full-length CD, along with the usual studio collaborations between Dan & Chris.
