Moira Katson

Moira Katson writes Fantasy and Science Fiction novels. Born and raised in the farmland of the eastern United States, she is now a transplant living in the oft-frigid wastes of the midwest, where she is learning to love hot dish, fried food on a stick, ice fishing, and the hilarious faces her friends make when she tells them about winter temperatures.

Despite the fact that she had been writing since childhood, Moira majored in nice, sensible subjects in college and went on to have a nice, sensible job, all the while continuing to write about dragons, courts, and spaceships. She has since bowed to the inevitable and begun releasing her work into the world! Her first novel, Mahalia, was released in 2012, and her latest series, the Light & Shadow Trilogy, was published in April 2013.

Man Parrish

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0663563/


A native New Yorker of Italian descent, Parrish was a member of the extended family that converged nightly at Studio 54. His nickname, Man, first appeared in Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine, and his early live shows at Bronx hip-hop clubs were spectacles of lights, glitter, and pyrotechnics, which drew as much from the Warhol mystique as the Cold Crush Brothers.[1]

His premier release was “Hip Hop, Be Bop (Don’t Stop)” issued in 1982, which was featured in the film Shaun of the Dead, the video game GTA: Vice City, and was sampled in Sway & King Tech’s 1991 song “Follow 4 Now” from their second album “Concrete Jungle.” He eventually signed with Elektra Records but was dropped from the label in 1984 when it decided not to release the album he had recorded for it.

As of the 2010s, Parrish is on Pink Biscuit Records and was scheduled to release a record via Southern Fried Records, the label owned by Fatboy Slim.

Michael A. Levine is the composer for the upcoming George Lucas-produced “Star Wars Detours” animated series featuring Seth Green and Seth MacFarlane. And he is an eight-time ASCAP Film and Television Music Award winner for scoring the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced “Cold Case” series as well as being a respected composer of concert music. But did you know that he also wrote the music for the iconic Kit Kat “Gimme A Break” jingle, arranged the choir version of The Simpson’s Movie’s “Spider Pig”, and produced Lorde’s spooky rendition of Everybody Wants to Rule The World from the Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack?

Michael describes his career as “pathologically eclectic”. Born in Tokyo, raised in the Midwest, Michael moved to New York City where his first jobs were playing violin and harmonica on the streets, in Irish pubs, country western bars, and in the underground rock band scene. He moved on to being a studio musician where he worked with Lenny Kravitz, Joe Jackson, Marianne Faithfull, Boy George, and Grandmaster Flash (on keyboards).

Eventually, Michael began writing music for advertising. His groundbreaking and widely imitated work for Mitsubishi Eclipse won him the first of two Clio awards. But it is his Kit Kat “Gimme A Break” jingle (with lyricist Ken Shuldman) that was named top commercial “earworm” of all time by a Univ. of Cincinnati study.

From there, Michael began scoring television shows and films including dramas, Cold Case and Close To Home (CBS), and the films Adrift in Manhattan (Heather Graham). Columbus Day (Val Kilmer), and Fugly (John Leguizamo). He also wrote the Scrat-the-Stoneage-squirrel theme for the Ice Age series.

Levine has served as support composer and violinist for Hans Zimmer, Harry Gregson-Williams, and Cliff Martinez on films including Batman Dark Knight, Rango, and The Simpsons Movie. He produced songs for the hit Nickelodeon show “The Naked Bros. Band”, which became a #1 hit on the Billboard Kids charts.

Michael remains dedicated to art music. Besides his critically praised “Divination By Mirrors: Concerto for Musical Saw and Strings” and “Concerto for Pedal Steel Guitar and Orchestra”, Michael was awarded the LA Weekly theater music award for his work in the Jim Leonard play, Battle Hymn, presented at the Anson Ford Theater.

Michael currently serves as a Governor for the Television Academy (Emmys). In that capacity he is spearheading the production of “Score!”, the first Academy-sponsored orchestral concert of television music on May 21, 2014.
