On the surface, Dropping Dulcinea is Jason Walls and Guy Nicolette, two band mates looking for a way to continue creating and performing music years after we sold the touring van.
Peeling back a layer you would find our previous collaboration in a band called Fifth Year Crush. In the Spanish of its time, the word ‘dulcinea’ meant something similar to a “sweetheart” and today, to reference someone as your "Dulcinea" implies hopeless devotion and love.
Fifth Year Crush was our Dulcinea. Letting go of a first love, especially when unrequited or unfulfilled, is painful but often ultimately necessary. So for us, letting go of Fifth Year Crush was achingly difficult. And so now, years later, our desire to continue to pursue a love of creating music in a new band is truly Dropping Dulcinea.
