Dead Flowers got its start as a celebrated music-centered online platform for its writers' passions and obsessions. It was a place to read about the classics reconsidered, the obscure brought into the spotlight, the lost re-found, and the so-called "marginal" made to matter... Those elements animate Dead Flowers Productions, an enterprise devoted to managing, booking, and promoting bands and projects that ignite those same passions.
