Dairenn Lombard - Keyboard, Guitar, Vocals
Hailing from Los Angeles, Dairenn Lombard embarked on a mission to bring large-scale production, affectionate lyrics and virtuoso instrumentation back to rock music. After years of perfecting his craft -- learning the techniques of Rush's Alex Lifeson, Edward Van Halen, Yngwie J. Malmsteen and Mr. Big’s Paul Gilbert – STARFIRE was born. STARFIRE blends an array of genres, presenting Lombard’s original interpretation of Classic Rock with songs about love and affection. Beyond the lyrics, the true focus of the music is on the massive drums, epic keyboard ambiance and edgy yet sophisticated guitar work. After spending 20 years learning to perform and record along with writing countless songs he joined ASCAP, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.
