Chameleon Conductor

Chameleon Conductor is a Los Angeles based band that blends the eclectic sounds of its members into their unique brand of “cocktail rock”. Their cryptic and dynamic live shows capture the eyes and ears of a wide spectrum of audiences.

The band has performed at renowned venues such as the El Rey Theatre, The Key Club, The Roxy, The Whiskey A Go Go, and The Viper Room as well as shared the stage with Wu-Tang Clan, Mix Master Mike, The Apex Theory, Money Mark (Beastie Boys), members of System of a Down, and others. They have also had their music featured in the 2011 independent film "Voice of the Unknown: A Paranormal Investigation". The band caught the attention of Shavo Odadjian (System of a Down) who took the role of producer and streamlined their sound.

Soon after, vocalist Vino Alan (X-Factor finalist) joined Chameleon Conductor and together they entered the studio with producer Shavo Odadjian and engineer Florian Ammon (Mariah Carey, Rammstein, U2). A three-song demo was completed in the spring of 2014.
Since then the band has performed at renowned LA venues like El Rey Theater, The Key Club, The Roxy, The Whiskey A Go Go, and The Viper Room as well as shared the stage with acts such as Snot, Mix Master Mike, The Apex Theory, Wu-Tang Clan, Money Mark, Viza, and members of System of a Down.
With a live show that features special guests as well as visuals, Chameleon Conductor’s sound is one that evokes the influences of its members from across the musical spectra—fusing them into a fresh, soothingly aggressive sound that is completely their own.
The band is releasing their debut EP, entitled “Pings Home” (produced by Shavo Odadjian) at this show!

The Hollywood Arson Project

Emma Ejwertz & Sarah Agajanian

Sarah Agajanian:
“Meant to be” is the debut single release by the raspy, sultry, seductive, LA based singer/songwriter/pianist, Sarah Agajanian. An artist in many forms, Sarah’s passionate lyrics, combined with her ethereal melodies and hypnotic stage presence, will captivate audiences and fans of all ages. “Meant to be” is an expression of the journey of becoming aware of the voice inside that leads us to our hearts, and is the first song and music video release from Sarah’s upcoming genre defining project.

The project "MEANT TO BE" began when Sarah was having dreams about being a singer 4 years ago, she had never been behind the mic until she made the decision to sing and from then on she has been writing, producing, performing and creating her musical soul. It was a DREAM COME TRUE. The piano is her choice of instrument and thats where the songs originate. Stay tuned for more music, videos and performances THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING.

"Everytime I write a song, I find myself."- Sarah Agajanian


Emma Ejwertz:


I am a Swedish singer/songwriter/guitarist with my roots in Bastad, Laholm and Halmstad, in Southwest Sweden. In recent years I have been living Los Angeles.

I have been writing songs since I started listening to Fleetwood Mac, Janis Joplin and Nirvana in my teens.

My first band was a punk rock all-girl band called Wild Cherry. We were only 15, but had a lot of aspirations. It was hard to play in a teenage band with all girls, but it was a great experience. We played the entire Hole and Nirvana collection, because I had a huge crush on Courtney Love at the time. We also wrote a many original songs, and that’s when my songwriting skills started to develop.

I studied music at Performance Arts High school in Sweden before I came to Los Angeles as an exchange student. I was lucky enough to be able to stay in the U.S. and pursue my dream.

Funny thing…when I was 20, I got the opportunity to audition for Courtney Love’s side project, “The Bastards”. Courtney was opening up for Jane’s Addiction and looking for a lead guitarist.

A year later I was contacted by Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots, Velvet Revolver) and Douglas Grean (Stone Temple Pilots, Velvet Revolver, Sheryl Crow)., whom I performed for at their recording studio in Burbank. They were really excited about my music, and began recording a demo for me. Scott and I ended up recording a cover of “Heart Shaped Box”, where he sang backup. He sang backup on other songs I wrote as well.

After that, I had some cool opportunities to work with very talented musicians and producers in Los Angeles, including Steve Gryphon (Glen Ballard, Avril Lavigne, Lisa-Marie Presley).

This past year I have been blessed to work on music for the TV show “Dirt”, starring Courtney Cox. I sang the main title and have a number of songs featured in the show. Season 2 begins airing on March 2nd at 10 PM on FX. Be sure to check it out. You can listen to some of the tunes featured on the show here.

I recently left my other project, Nerviosa, to fully commit to my solo career. If you like you can check out another part of me, please visit www.myspace.com/lanerviosa. The music is best described as a cross between Bjork and A perfect Circle.

It’s tough to make yourself heard in Los Angeles with so much talent and so many driven people, but I love to be part of the whole mess. It’s frustrating, yet amazing at the same time.

I often write on acoustic guitar, although I prefer the electric. It’s much more challenging and interesting. My favorite pedal is the Line 6 delay and I play through a Fender Deluxe. Love that combo! My acoustic guitar is a Taylor.

I’m always interested in putting together/playing shows with other artists as well, so if you have anything that would be a good fit, please contact me at emma_ejwertz@yahoo.com.

Thank you for checking out my page and I love to hear any thoughts our comments you might have. Stay tuned for future shows around the Los Angeles area...

Devoted to the band and each other, Clepto was formed in 2000 in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The four members of the band found themselves in the Middle East as their families moved there for employment. Fred and Phil, two brothers originally from Cyprus, with Armenian and Lebanese ethnic backgrounds, adopted Canada as their home in 2002. Canada is where both Alex and Nick were born and lived before leaving home for Saudi Arabia. Alex, a Portuguese-Canadian, Montreal born Punk Rocker and Nick, a Greek-Canadian, Winnipeg born Metalhead both lead the way with their lyrics covering everything from culture, global issues, religion, to personal conflicts and psychological reflections of themselves within society. Together, with a sing and a bounce from Phil and Fred’s Mediterranean melodic bass and drums, they all complete Clepto.
