    Potters Daughter (MRR) was formed in NYC while Dyanne was studying classical piano performance at the Manhattan School of Music. The group performed regularly in NYC, as well as in northeastern PA. Potters Daughter has been featured on radio, TV, and in national and international magazines and blogs. Potters Daughter released their debut album, The Blind Side, in August 2018. In 2019 they released two singles; Blood and Water, featuring Annie Haslam (Renaissance) as guest artist, and the holiday single, This Winters Child, which was composed for the MRR Holiday album.

    In March 2020 they went on tour with MRR labelmate Joe Deninzon & Stratospheerius, and Dark Beauty. They were also invited to participate in several online festivals, including The Uncancelled Music Festival (April), The WorldWide Prog and Rock Virtual Festival (May), and the ProgStock Presents Festival. (August).

    In October 2020, Potters Daughter released their Covid Quarantine EP, Casually Containing Rage. The single from the EP, We Could Be, was released as a video, directed by filmmaker Serena Kunzler.

    In December 2020, Potters Daughter was featured in the Limelight section of Prog Magazine, and in the same edition, voted #2 in the Readers Poll Unsigned Band Category.

    In February 2021, Potters Daughter enjoyed the privilege of participating in the debut release (Pyrrhas Song) for Nick Katonas Troubleshooting Pandoras Box, together with drummer Jimmy Keegan.

    In April 2021, Potters Daughters music video, We Could Be, was chosen as a finalist to compete in the annual American Golden Picture International Film Festival.

    They are scheduled to close the prestigious music festival, ProgStock (NJ), on Oct. 3rd, and open the music festival, Prog on the Ranch, (FL) October 30th.

    Now, with the addition of virtuoso guitarist Guthrie Govan adding his fire to the mix, they plan to release their heaviest work to date. The Artwork for the album cover was created especially for this project by the master artist, Armand Cabrera.

    Jan and Dyanne are evidently partial to doing interesting and unique things in their music so I was very happy to contribute to the record it was a lot of fun! Guthrie Govan (guitarist currently playing with The Aristocrats and Hans Zimmer)

    Say Dyanne and Jan of Potters Daughter, There really is no one who plays guitar like Guthrie - truly a pinch-me moment to have him play on our record. He more than deserves his spot in the pantheon of the all-time Greats!

    It has been an absolute pleasure to play on your music. Very challenging and ever so much fun. - Simon Phillips (drummer with Protocol, Toto, Hiromi, Mike Oldfield, The Who, Jeff Beck etc)

    just beautiful...I love your voice, and chord progressions are sublime - Jon Anderson (lead singer of progressive rock band, Yes)

    On first hearing of Blood and Water I was struck by its unusual and haunting melody and Dyanne's exquisite voice. To be a part of it was truly a wonderful experience. - Annie Haslam (Lead singer of progressive rock band, Renaissance)

    How many songs is Guthrie playing on?

    Although I admire Guthrie's playing I really hope original Potter's Daughter-guitarist Amit Chatterjee will be on the album too. He's for me the shining star on The Blind Side.

    Troubleshooting Pandora's Box is a side-project from the singer and guitarist/keyboardplayer of Potter's Daughter. On the single Pyrrha's Song, which was released in May this year Jimmy Keegan is on drums:

    The sound is a lot more heavier than on the Potter's Daughter-CD; I wonder if this will also be the case on the new album with Guthrie and Phillips.

    1. One (Ginastera)
    2. Rosewind (DPV + JCV)

    Dyanne Potter Voegtlin

    Jan Christiana

    Simon Phillips

    The new band, Octarine Sky, formed during the creation of the album, “Close to Nearby,” as the shared vision of pianist/keyboardist and vocalist Dyanne Potter Voegtlin, bassist and producer Jan Christiana, and drum legend Simon Phillips became apparent. “Close to Nearby” is indeed a true collaboration; the impact each musician’s artistry contributes to the overall sound cannot be overstated.

    And the result? A wide-reaching sound that’s artistically adventurous, driving and forceful, yet at certain moments also haunting and vulnerable. “Close to Nearby” by Octarine Sky offers both instrumental virtuosity and beautiful, lush vocal harmonies. The rhythm section of Phillips and Christiana provide magnificent power and groove to Potter Voegtlin’s fiery piano/keyboards and soul-stirring vocals. Add to that the artistry of the two superlative guest guitarists, Guthrie Govan and Amit Chatterjee, and the outcome is the rich and riveting listening experience that is “Close to Nearby.”

    Guthrie Govan

    Amit Chatterjee

    From the first compelling note of the album-opening “One,” an arrangement of the first movement of the “Piano Sonata #1” by Alberto Ginastera, through the cinematic “Night Sky/Into the Dream” featuring Guthrie Govan, the heavy fusion of “5,” to the atonal virtuosic masterpiece of “VII,” an arrangement for full band of a piano solo by Julia Schwartz, to the evocative and hopeful ending song, “Hold” featuring Amit Chatterjee, the album is ambitious in both its concept and sound. Octarine Sky’s debut album Close to Nearby is a vibrant and captivating sonorous adventure from beginning to end.

    The beautiful Artwork for the album cover was created especially for this project by the master artist, Armand Cabrera.

    Plans for Octarine Sky to perform live in 2022 are being discussed. “It will be a challenge and a pleasure to perform the music from Close to Nearby,” Simon, Jan, and Dyanne agree.

    “It has been an absolute pleasure to work on this album. Very challenging and ever so much fun.” - Simon Phillips (drummer with Protocol, Toto, Hiromi, etc.)

    Say Dyanne Potter Voegtlin and Jan Christiana, “The huge contribution of Simon’s playing to our music, together with the depth of his artistry and vision simply cannot be understated or exaggerated. He added a completely new dimension to each song. He is also down to earth, such a joy to work with!”

    “I was very happy to contribute to the record – it was a lot of fun!.” – Guthrie Govan (guitarist currently playing with The Aristocrats and Hans Zimmer)
