SpinTunes #9: Profiles

Time to meet your fellow competitors!  I suggest you all test out your links to make sure they are working, and if you notice anything else that's missing or wrong just let me know.  I'll fix them as soon as I can. I accidentally mixed up my e-mail list of entries, so if your bio is missing totally & you know you sent one...just send me an e-mail.  We'll take care of it.

(Profile order is based on who sent in their entry form first.)



Felix Frost: I'm a solo quasi-experimental synthpop musician who is actually a storyteller first and a songwriter second.

Steven Wesley Guiles: Steven used to take himself seriously when writing music, because music was serious business. Now he just writes whatever the freak he wants and is ok with it. He's found a small bit of musical success writings songs for film and television and has had songs played on MTV Real World, The Mindy Project, and Keeping Up with the Kardashians. He's not really proud of the Kardashians one...but it paid well.

Sid Brown: Sid dabbles in songwriting from time to time playing mostly guitar and fiddle. As of late he has kept to himself strumming in a quiet corner of North Carolina, keeping hidden so as to not melt the skulls of the innocent with his sick melodies. It is also rumored he hates the sound of his own voice. The highlight of his career was playing fiddle in a very cool cover band with Kevin Savino-Riker years ago.

Kolton H.: Electronic musician from Kansas City, MO. My obsession with music started when I began taking drum lessons as a kid and has grown ever since. Although I dabble in all genres I tend to prefer darker, aggressive music with elements of industrial, drum & bass, and ambient with cyberpunk themes. As a break from that I also like writing chiptunes, or glitchy, trip-hop inspired music.

Megalodon: The "Big mighty" band is an extinct species of shark rock that lived long ago, during the Cenozoic Era. Megalodon is regarded as one of the largest and most powerful predator bands in vertebrate rock history, and likely had a profound impact on the structure of marine rock. Primative recordings suggest that this giant shark rock band reached a maximum awesomeness.
