​NYC-based, prog/metal project, Orissa, premieres the lyric video, “Tara” on Guitar Player!


  Orissa mastermind — and “almost” one-man band — David Dodini is sharing this exclusive video premiere of his song “Tara” from his upcoming Resurrection album, due November 3, 2017.

A graduate (with honors) of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music with a Masters Degree from the Biella Conservatory’s Scuola Niccolo Paganini in Biella, Italy, Dodini ultimately pushed his strict classical training to the side in order to explore the cross pollination of multiple styles, such as jazz, Balkan, prog, metal, and folk rhythms. Throughout all the tracks on Resurrection—which was funded with the assistance of a $20,000 Kickstarter campaign—Dodini played all the instruments, with the exception of drums, which were performed by Jason Gianni (drummer for Trans Siberian Orchestra, Neal Morse, Book of Mormon).
