Chase the Comet
In 2016 ’Chase the Comet’ members, frontwoman Nika Comet and guitarist Alexander Mishustov booked a one way ticket from Moscow, Russia to Los Angeles, CA leaving behind a successful band in their home country to follow their dreams and ‘deliver their music to the whole world’.
Starting a new life in the United Stated, Nika and Alex began playing in legendary Los Angeles venues such as ‘Whisky a Go-Go’ (opening up for Michale Graves (ex-MISFITS) and Joe Lynn Turner (Deep Purple, Rainbow), ’Viper Room’, ‘Loaded’, ‘Musicians Institute’, ’Skinny’s Lounge’ and events such as ‘Tattoo Expo’ at Pomona Fairplex. Staying loyal to their passion, they began the search to find perfect musicians to complete the new band. After a short search, ’Chase the Comet’ drummer, Elliott Samson, auditioned for the part and soon became an integral member of this power trio.
All three members of ‘Chase the Comet’ have had significant experience as successful session musicians in many projects: with over 20 years of experience behind the kit, Elliott has played played stages all over the world including the Staples Center in Los Angeles and Manhattan’s Central Park with headlining acts. Guitarist, Alex Mishustov has shared huge stages opening for the likes of ‘Metallica’, ‘Linkin Park’, ‘Muse’ and ‘Incubus’, just to name a few! Vocalist Nika Comet has an impressive resume, providing backing vocals for one of the most popular Russian rock-bands ‘TARAKANY!’ so ‘Chase the Comet’ can be fairly called a supergroup.
Nika and Alex are also at home in front of the camera, successfully competing in a reality TV-show (like ‘American Idol’) and with their first band, titled “MyRockBand”, they went to the final after 2 months in the project.
In the end of 2017 they released an EP compiling earlier recorded English songs. And in February, 2018 ‘Chase the Comet’ released their first full-length album ’Rush’n’Rule’. In addition to playing many local shows they are getting on a West Coast tour in April.
Flock of Walri
Flock of Walri is a Turbo Prog Trip originating in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The band consists of Mike Ross on guitar, Mike Mast on drums, and Dan Miller on bass/vocals. The band’s sound is an enigmatic mix of funk, punk, and prog like never heard or seen before.
DAMYN took an unconventional path to Indie Pop
music. In 2009 he went on a vision quest to Madagascar,
into the jagged limestone structure known as the Tsingy
de Bemaraha. From this experience, he received clarity
about the deep importance and power of music, and his
specific purpose with it.
Fulfilling this purpose would require an in depth
education. That pursuit earned him a Masters of Music in
Composition. DAMYN chose to apply the tools thus
gained to making music in the world of Indie/Pop.
Having honed his craft and his message over this long
period of development, DAMYN is set to finish his debut
album, The Dark Corners, in the summer of 2018.
He is based out of Los Angeles.
