Bio: I was born in the middle of the Maine woods without electricity or running water. Music was a huge part of my life from infancy, and it only seemed natural that I spent my time in college studying it. I released my first album, “Whorl”, at about the time that I graduated in early 2012, and I’ve released three albums since then. My most recent, “Cloud Machines”, is a reactive piece of music that loosely addresses many of my feelings about climate change and current events.
We went through countless band names, some of them serious and some were downright comical. We decided to call it Pet Shark because we didn’t want to take ourselves too seriously at the time, and we also thought that we could create some fun graphics with a name like that. Thus, Pet Shark was born. Bio: We are a progressive rock instrumental trio from Orange County, California, USA. We released our first album in November of 2011. We’ve been out supporting the CD ever since, performing showcases all over Southern California, and as far east as Nashville, Tennessee. We are currently operating as an unsigned band, although we’re open to the possibility of a relationship with an established label. Since our inception, we’ve been selling our music on most music sites around the world in addition to our website. We’re also on several internet radio stations, with the hopes of gaining ground in the terrestrial radio market.

The Resonance Festival and the Joy and Satisfaction in Being Myself
To some it may seem childish and conceited but, to me, one of the highlights of The Resonance Festival was wandering around wearing an ‘Access All Areas’ laminated pass all weekend. One of the many fantastic, down to earth people I met, Graham Harris, says it best so I’ll let his comment get down to the heart of the whole event.
“I have a drawer full of laminates. Each one tells a story. But the Resonance one holds the best story of all.”
Anthony: Our foundation is Daniel Beck, Rock Rollain, Ivan Schone, and myself Anthony Hoyes. We all met from working with each other in other bands. Dan and Rock were in BloodHaven, Rock and Ivan were in Kult Of Thorn, Rock, Dan, Ivan and myself were all in The Lustmord, and we have all been live members for Green Jelly.
The band started touring in 2010. The founder and leader of the band is Wojtek Balczun. During the final phase of forming the band CHEMIA recorded in Vancouver the extended play “In the Eye” that was the first presentation of the band’s true sound. Partially it was due to the fact that Chemia started its cooperation with the vocalist Luke Drapala who was the perfect complement of the band’s style. In 2012 the band was invited to the Warehouse Studio in Canada to realize their true debut – the long play album “The One Inside”. After that Chemia have launched they tour across Canada and Poland. Last year the band have signed the contracts with the Agency group and at the moment CHEMIA is represented by Ralph James. CHEMIA is one of the most successful Polish bands playing modern rock. Their music can be heard on several Polish radio stations as their singles “Bondage of love” and “Hero” went to the top of the most important rock charts in Poland. What is more CHEMIA can be seen and heard live during various music festivals across Europe and overseas.
