Imagine Dragons/Artist development

I saw the band at a bar in Las Vegas about 2 1/2 years before they got signed and I loved their energy. I have very specific things that I look for in a band and they had enough of the elements for me to ask to get involved. I mixed songs to help them get a deal and those were used on the record as well. I can't get into the terms of my deal but it was a great project to be involved in and brought in a lot more work as well. I also did that with The Killers and Neon Trees. I know a lot of people who tell me about new bands and I also go out and see them.The main thing about the Dragons that caught my attention right away was Dan's delivery. I do spec deals with these bands so I am fronting the costs of my part of the project until either I or the band get a deal.
