Local San Diego Artists Create Wearable Art Apparel for Hippy Rock Band

“An individual can dispose of up to 81lbs of clothing per year.”

A local group of inspired artists has come together to outfit San Diego hippy rock band Daring Greatly with new stage threads using old (previously loved) clothing and costume jewelry. The community of artists and music lovers have the vision to reduce, repurpose and recycle lightly used clothing and costume jewelry to create an inspired collection of wearable art.

The Daring Greatly apparel line made its debut this past Saturday night October 14th at a Record Release party in Rancho Sante Fe for the band’s new album titled ‘Works of Art.”

“It’s a way to express yourself with purpose and intention,” says Diane Coale, Daring Greatly Apparel lead wearable artist. “I dare to be different – detached from the fads, trends and mass production. Our Daring Greatly community hopes to bring back meaningful apparel,” says Diane.

“Our team has been working on original designs for months now. Jeans, chokers, dresses, they’re all one of a kind. We’re thrilled to offer the entire premier line for sale on Saturday night,” says Teagan Bullard creative lead for the wearable art group.  Shop for Daring Greatly Apparel at an online shopping site coming soon.

Daring Greatly, an independent, five-piece, hippy-rock band, is comprised of a dad, his two sons, and their two best friends – their goal is to continuously share the message of being fearless, free, and vulnerable. Daring Greatly’s three-part “blood harmony” evokes memories of Crosby Stills Nash and Young. The boys write original lyrics and music and were recently Dubbed “the hardest working band in San Diego” by Boogie Magazine.

Patch, Liam, Dail, Brayden, and Brandon are heavily influenced by music from the 60s and 70s. Their blazing and current sound with crunching guitar solos and a Powerful B3 organ seriously impressed Jon Bon Jovi’s team. Daring Greatly entered a contest to open for the rock legend, and they were selected to open for a Bon Jovi show on February 25th at the T-Mobile stadium in Las Vegas.

“To have a group of people like “Daring Greatly” that can make such an impact on so many people in such a short period of time has been enlightening and a guide to great hope looking ahead. Their music, their story and their character will rise above the fray and impact many others.” Rich Singley – Radio Host/Producer – Happy Hour San Diego
