Anderson School Class of 2023: Oenobeer

This year's birthday beer is a blended golden ale augmented with 30% Alder RIdge, Washington cabernet sauvignon grape juice, spontaneously fermented and aged six months in French oak. It's light red in color, tart, has good structure and a light tannic astringency from the grapes, but it is balanced by a cereal-like bready sweetness from its malty base.

About Dain Norman and the Chrysalis Effect


Dain Norman and the Chrysalis Effect

Dain Norman is a singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and audio producer. Dain Norman currently fronts his band The Chrysalis Effect. Norman is not really from anywhere; he moved his entire childhood from state to state, city to city. He considers himself from both Florida and Georgia, US, spending the most time in those places in his upbringing. Since age 13 Norman has been performing in bands and started performing in bars at age 15. Self-releasing his first solo album, performing every instrument, and producing, "Michael" in 2008, in tribute to his late step-father. Norman began to steadily move around the SE US performing, in a vagabond fashion and self-releasing demo quality singles between 2009-2013, a collection called "Lost In Space" soon to be re-released. In the summer of 2013 Norman briefly played with a reggae band called "Reggae Rockus", who shared a bill with "Ziggy Marley & The Wailers", in Gainesville, FL at The JAM festival. Norman relocated to the PNW in late 2013 to pursue his dream of a music career. Making the trip across the country into a DIY tour, playing at open mics, blues jams, street corners, and little beatnik coffee shops, arriving in the PNW during winter, with only $15, living in his car, and street performing to get by. The Chrysalis Effect project band was formed in 2015, in Tacoma, WA. The project has since toured throughout WA state, and OR. Releasing the self-produced "HelloJudeProductions" EP in 2016, named after Norman's first child born, "Jude" in 2015, also "6 AM Hangups" single in early 2018, about losing yourself to a job you hate to provide, and the full-length "Lantern" in late 2019, a concept album in tribute to Norman's fiance' Aili, about letting Love be your Lantern, to guide you through the darkness of life sometimes. The project put out an EP titled "Back Down To Earth", in June 2021 through Aldora Britain Records, also a concept record about getting back in touch with your roots, relaxing, and de-stressing so that we have a more clear vision of the reality of the world and life as we know it. The first single "Fellow Man" from the EP received airplay on 14 + radio programs throughout Europe, Australia, and America. Norman is also in the process of producing TCE project's second full-length album, "Shades of Blue", with co-production done by legendary producer Jonathan Plum, who has worked with acts such as Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, Sound Garden, and currently Brandi Carlile. The first single "Shades Of Blue/What You're Worth" is now out on Aldora Britain Records, and is receiving airplay on 30 + stations in Europe, Australia, and America, including KBCS 91.3 FM out of Bellevue currently. The record is due for its release in late summer 2023! The record is a reflection of the psychology of people at large internally in reaction to the Covid-19 pandemic, with themes of 1960s peace and love in a single breath.
