Simeon Harris grew up in Chiswick, London. He stated playing guitar at 15, borrowing his father’s old 12-string acoustic at first, but soon acquiring his first electric for the princely sum of £35. “It was my dad who first got me onto the guitar. He used to to take down his old Hagstrom a couple of times a year, strum some tunes and then put it back again. It got my interest though and I started teaching myself how to play as soon as I could. He bought me a cheap electric when he saw I was serious about it and I never looked back”.
Completely self-taught, Simeon started playing in groups with school friends. “It was just for fun…I think we were pretty terrible…! But some of those musical friendships have lasted to this day and they’re very precious to me”. Then in 1996, Simeon met a bass player from Cardiff and a new musical relationship was formed that would have a huge impact on Simeon’s musical direction. “I was playing in a band that was a cross between Zeppelin and Rush at the time. It was going nowhere, so I put an ad in a local paper and got a call from this guy who was putting together a funk band. I was desperate for a change and he sounded interesting, so I went to meet him. I didn’t happen to mention to him that I knew absolutely nothing about funk at the time!”.
That bass player was Jason Rogers and the band that grew out of that relationship was Mongoose. A 14-piece funk leviathan that turned heads wherever it played around London…and not jut because of it’s size! Mongoose had regular gigs on Sunday nights at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in Soho and at the renowned 100 Club on Oxford Street, eventually picking up a support slot behind the legendary Maceo Parker at the Forum in Kentish Town. Mongoose folded in 2001, but spawned a smaller version of itself called Monkjack, which continued to gig around London and the home counties for a few years. “Those bands were a real education for me – the discipline needed to play that kind of music is immense and I learned heaps about groove construction.” Simeon continues to collaborate with Jason, most notably in the Fourth World ambient project Zillo.
In 2000, Simeon recorded his first ambient album, called Realms of Elements. It was pretty rough and ready, but the positive feedback he got from it encouraged him to delve deeper into the textural side of guitar playing. He recorded The Assessment in 2003, Mechanoia in 2004 and Captured, his second soundscapes album, in 2006. The Assessment was distributed by Alternity Records in 2005 and Simeon recorded a new track for the album especially for the release. He released eScape in 2010, distributed by Digital Nations, which fuses deep ambient textures with rock, dub, electronica and eastern influences.
In 2011, he released his latest work Beyond the Frozen Sea, which is a quartet of ambient albums, entirely composed of improvised soundscapes.
Simeon continues to work with Zillo, and is planning more solo releases and a live/studio project featuring guest drummers and bass players.

Joe Sikes, singer/songwriter from ODK & The Fabric, has just released his first solo EP, “Offset”.
Tyshan was born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario (45 minutes outside of Toronto).
Throughout Tyshan’s life he was actively involved in the church. From the age of about 4, he recognized that he had the ability to sing and started using the church as a place to interactively cultivate his gift.
Although he was raised in a pentecostal church, Tyshan did not take his Christianity seriously until after a night of partying, where he almost lost his life. It was at this moment that he accepted Jesus into his life as his personal Lord and Saviour and dedicated his voice back to God.
A few months after that night Tyshan entered into a local talent search competition where he was going to sing a secular love song. On the way to the talent show he was T-boned by another car while going through a green light. At this moment he remembered his vows to God and re-dedicated his voice to Him. Since then, Tyshan only makes positive music that is personal and describes his journey as a Christian.
Please continue to pray and support him in his ministry.

Alex was born in Frankfurt am Main, Germany in 1975. At the age of twelve he showed great interest in rock and guitar music, spent lots of time watching MTV’s “Headbanger’s Ball” and finally, at the age of 14, decided to buy his first electric guitar.
After five years of private guitar lessons with guitar teacher Joachim Rothe, Alex met his first band, which had by far more poser photo albums done over the time, than gigs or even songs 😉
A few years and bands later in 1997, he decided to take one more year of private guitar lesson with guitar teacher Thomas Dill and prepared himself to study at the Los Angeles Music Academy.
The time in L.A. was by far the most intensive time in terms of music and it was such a pleasure to jam with teachers such as Frank Gambale, Bill Fowler, Jeff Richman, Joy Basu, Linda Taylor, Jean-Marc Belkadi and many others …
Alex graduated in September of 1998, came back to Germany and worked as a private guitar teacher for around two years and he also became the lead guitarist in the rock/pop band “Reinvented”.
After winning several music and band contests, the band got signed with the record label BMG, recorded and released one album and several singles and toured all over Germany with bands such as Reamonn, Guano Apes, H-Blockx, Glow, LAW and many others …
Especially during the studio recording sessions with the band, Alex was carried away by computers, sequencers, virtual instruments, plugins and sample libraries.
… which first was the little home studio to record and work on upcoming “Reinvented” songs in Alex’s basement, should later become his project studio “the cellarroom”, where he started to work as a composer and sound designer for video games.
Since Alex was nine years old he was into computer games and so he decided to mix up the “seriousness” of work together with his hobby and the interest in music. The result was a composer and sound designer for video games.
Let your hobby become your job is probably the best thing which can happen.
“Reinvented” split up in 2003, Alex moved to Munich and already worked on quite a few little video games but also other multimedia projects. Finally, in 2005 Alex joined Dynamedion, Germany’s leading sound design company for video games.
In late 2005, Alex moved to Hamburg, Germany.
In 2009 Alex met german producer Frank Peterson (Sarah Brightman, Andrea Bocelli, Gregorian and many others) and started arranging and co-writing for him.
Until today he has been working on award winning video games, movie and game trailers, sample library demos and lots of other multimedia projects.

The Philippines is a great place to discover music. The burgeoning independent music scene is full of talented acts that are ripe for the picking. Brisom, a blossoming new group from Manila is a great example of a local band that carries an undeniable crossover and international appeal. The group was put together by Brian Sombero, former front man for the cult band Menaya, whose album “The Worst News” is considered by local underground music purist as one of the best album you have never heard.
Brian initially wanted to record songs just for the heck of it. Friends from the local band scene who listened to the new materials liked them so much that they prodded him form a live core group. Brian arranged the songs and mixed it with the talents of Tim Abbott, Jason Rondero, Jeffrey Castro and Terence Teves.
Peers describe them as a “new band with old souls”, which may be the reason why though admittedly the band is relatively new, they have been getting rave reviews. Last November, the band opened for Dave Elkins, front man of seminal American rock group “Mae” on his Manila leg of his Asian Tour at the Hardrock Café, Makati and in Tab, Singapore. Brisom also had a show in Blu Jaz Cafe, SG last March 2013.
They were also invited to play in the most recent Sonic Carnival, an international festival featuring bands like Razorback, Urbandub, UpDharmaDown and international DJ acts such as Laidback Luke and Steve Aoki.
The band is mulling an EP release early 2014 entitled “Perspectives”

Fabiano Pereira, Jahrgang 1982, bewegt sich gekonnt zwischen den Stilen Jazz, Rock und Pop, und glänzt dabei als Gitarrist, Sänger und Komponist gleichermaßen.

Mit4Spiel5, BuJazzO, Barbara Dennerlein, Kühntett, Life in Stereo. Er bereiste mit diesen Projekten Konzerthäuser in ganz Deutschland und Europa. Sein besonderes Händchen für brasilianische Musik führen auf die Erlebnisse der frühesten Kindheit in der Millionenmetropole São Paulo zurück, die ihn bis heute prägen. Geschichten von Menschen, deren Liebe und Leidenschaften sind die ständigen Triebfedern seiner Kunst. Seit 2009 ist er auch als freier Komponist tätig.

Nik Kershaw was born in Bristol in 1958.
His formative years were spent in Ipswich where he discovered his love for music. In 1978, after three years working as a civil servant, he turned professional, serving his apprenticeship playing guitar in jazz fusion and functions bands. He signed with MCA Records in 1983 and released his debut album “Human Racing” in 1984. It achieved multi platinum sales and launched Nik’s career worldwide.
The equally successful “The Riddle” followed and, in July 1985, he took the Wembley stage to perform at Live Aid. In 1990, after four MCA albums and sales of over 8 million, Nik left the spotlight to concentrate on song writing and producing. The following years saw him working with Elton John, Chesney Hawkes, Cliff Richard, Bonnie Tyler, Lulu, Ronan Keating, Jason Donovan, Tony Banks, Michael W Smith, Conner Reeves, Nick Carter, The Hollies, Colin Blunstone, Imogen Heap, Gary Barlow and Let Loose. He rekindled his recording career in 1998 with the critically acclaimed album “15 Minutes” and has subsequently released two further albums, “To Be Frank” (2001) and “You’ve Got To Laugh” (2006). He has received accolades from such legends as Eric Clapton and Miles Davis and has been nominated for four Brit Awards.
