Here’s our story. Well, it was the year 1997 when we were The Pipers. 3 years later some of us wanted to go separate ways, I decided to get a fresh start, a new style, A kind of music that we felt very happy with, so the journey of D.T.A = Doors To Aspiration officially began. The guys in the band are: Mike Arab: Vocals Guitars Rhythms and Solos Faris Faris: Drums Lyrics Leo Adhami: Keyboards Arrangements Nader Arab: Keyboards Salam Koumayra: Bass Freddy Moutraji: Guitars We’re just a bunch of guys who love and respect one another, and we all know that with love and respect a band can get somewhere. The guys in the band also like to dream and follow their dreams with hard work, hoping that one day, their dreams can become a reality and we all know that if we don’t dream, we die. It’s that simple. I still remember so vividly when I received a phone call from someone telling me that he was trying to put a band together and he’d like me to be the drummer and he said that he heard from some people that I had just arrived from New York and that I was also looking for a bunch of serious and talented guys to start a band. Well, I guess moments like that cannot be forgotten. The next day we got together and I decided to give it a try and see if the guys were really up to the task. It took a couple of years, people came and went, but later on we found each other. To make a long story short, D.T.A’s first video for the song Addict has really touched the hearts of people all over the world even though a small budget was assigned to make it. D.T.A’s latest news: We have just finished recording our first official CD which is entitled ART FROM A HEART. Radio stations in America and Lebanon started playing (Painting with words) the first single out of the CD. Nowadays D.T.A’s music is mesmerizing people. Huge crowds are always present wherever we play, people are talking about a blast of energy. Playing with melodic hard and soft melodies and catchy hooks, we have truly become the talk of town. Every gig is a night to remember playing all over the country. D.T.A always rocks the house. We leave people impatiently waiting for the next gig. Mingling with the crowd after every live performance has made every show a fan’s favorite. Almost every song through the set is a song that makes you wanna sing along with the band. The North of Lebanon based band exists just for the love of music. You know, making music is a big responsibility, but it’s a wonderful thing and very rewarding.
