a voice for Mother Nature


Four years ago at a musician only jam party two souls converged igniting a fire fueled by music. Sierra Madre and Dryden Van Cleave were the pioneers of a shared collective vision to raise vibrations and global awareness via frequency. This musical union welcomed additional band members which led to the creation of the band’s name Blooming Fire as well as the essence of their sound. Blooming Fire has blossomed into a Los Angeles based, brother & sister fronted five piece psych-rock band that prides themselves on being leaders for justice and sustainability while pouring their hearts and souls into being a voice for change. They deliver an eclectic sound with rock guitar, funk slap bass, dubby & droning electronic thwomps, cascading nature samples, hip-hop flows, bass heavy beats, and powerful lead vocals laced with harmonies which take you on an emotional and musical ride. The wind has blown Blooming Fire in many directions from consciousness-raising events like Burning Man and Lucidity Festival to indoor venues as well as private Joshua Tree desert gatherings.


The ability they have to mold their sound into any space while remaining unrestricted by genre leaves their audiences with always something new to get lost to. They’ve been making waves in Los Angeles, selling out the Teregram Ballroom and playing shows like Hollywood’s House of Blues just a couple months before the legendary venue closed its doors forever. They recorded their first EP in 2015 with Kraig Tyler (Crazy Town) in Brad Smiths’ (Blind Melon) studio, who engineered the room that day. They’ve performed live on K-Beach Radio 88.1 Long Beach and have been interviewed by K-Day Radio 93.5 Los Angeles on Amanda Wrights show Do The Right Thing. They’ve also been featured on Sensible Reason as "My new favorite festival band, Blooming Fire...an eclectic tangle of symbiotic talent. The party has just begun."  As leaders for justice and sustainability Blooming Fire does beach and forest clean-ups everywhere they go, they sell eco-friendly merch and educate their fans about environmental issues,  using their voices for change. This fall they will be headed out on their first nationwide tour alongside the release of a new single and music video. Their sound will never be restricted to one genre but Blooming Fire’s defining sound is their own and takes you on an emotional & musical ride which permeates through the psychedelic waves of life.

Given the glut of overproduced female vocals filling the airwaves and punctuating DJ sets, it’s a welcome return to Earth to hear Sierra Madre’s powerful, controlled, yet raw vocals. What’s more, this family has a message to share
— Sensible Reason
Nature breathes everything I need, She’s always with me, We’re wild and free...She reminds me what will be will be
