The Daven Mines
The Daven Mines was a brilliantly fun, but fleeting project between Dave Pratt and Colin Helb. Named (and pronounced) in reference to the band being “Dave and mine’s new band.” We shared all instrumentation, songwriting duties, arrangements, etc. Dave handled most of the vocals, and Colin handled the recording and mixing. All music was preformed to tape. In other words, the band never really existed as a full ensemble or anything approaching a live group. Everything was domes for the recordings.
Unfortunately, as with many projects attempted in environment of graduate school, its time was cut short as professional obligations and geographic distance kept the two artists apart.
