Dream Theater's keyboardist featured a video produced by our good buddy Daniel Jakubovic, cutting some sick sounds here at The Sound Machine.

Brothers Page (Josh and Zach) are the producers and they are actually long time family friends. Their new video is awesome. If you are a Game of Thrones fan you will especially be blown away! I’m really proud of the boys. Check it out and support the creation of their new album now at http://PledgeM…
