ONLY BEAST: "I stumbled across Only Beast simply because of their name and instantly became enamored of their dynamic and incredible front woman Danielle Renee, and the sheer raw power of the rock and roll that comes pouring out of her throat. Let's turn our attention now to another key ingredient [...] drummer John Salinas. The man is like some sort of ordered chaos who beats up and down the sides of songs in a whirlwind of rhythm that always feels like its on the verge of falling apart, the way a death-defying trapeze act does. It never falls, though."

- Jef Rouner, Houston Press

THE WHEEL WORKERS: "They are simultaneously brilliant and down-to-earth, sincerely progressive and catchy as hell, that rare band that can incorporate thoughtful politics into music while keeping things fun and engaging...The Wheel Workers are freaking awesome, and [with Citizens] they’ve gone a very different direction from the path they marched down last time. And it’s good. Oh, is it good." - Jeremy Hart, Space City Rock

"if you happened to miss when I said that this record was top notch, then I’ll just say again that it’s a true masterpiece.." - David Garrick, Free Press Houston

THE BRUNSON THEATER: Texas has a dirty secret creeping up from the Dirty Bay. Although it's affecting the air right's not toxic. The stories you will hear confront a toxic subject but you will likely enjoy the journey whether you're skimming the surface or digging in deep. 

The sound will demand your attention while warming your heart. Even on the haunting songs you'll find yourself singing like a child. An effective and rich bed of harmony supports every note. It seems impossible for a two minute long song spit out 21 chords yet never get in the way of the melody. No, this is not jazz. This music is for everybody! 

This is rock music from a band known as THE BRUNSON THEATER! The music native to Texas new and old covers a wide variety of styles but the forbidden music that's been spinning around the Dirty Bay for a while recently spawned a piece of work incompatible with any southern musical heritage. 

With veteran musician, Ryan Guidry, singing, writing and arranging the album promises to be one of the most melodically infectious and satisfying rock records of the past 15 years. Imagine Peter Gabriel era Genesis sung with Justin Hayward's (Moody Blues) timbre cross pollinating with The Beach Boys and Radiohead into a palatable flowing collection of songs informed by The Beatles.

Musician bios are deceptively difficult to write. Your band bio is your way of introducing yourself to both fans and music industry types, and you need to strike the right balance between providing useful information and going into so much detail no one makes it past the first paragraph. Learn how to put together a band bio that does the job and leaves people interested in learning more about you. 
1. Start off strong with an intriguing opening paragraph. 
Venues and bookers are very busy snorting cocaine, so they probably will not read your entire bio (have you heard about the club booker who made it out of high school? Me neither). It is important to start strong and grab the reader's interest. Introduce all of the band members and begin describing your sound immediately.

2. Turn the bio into a compelling story. 
Tell a story about your band. Make it something unique, funny, or memorable. Use fun and descriptive words to describe your music and bandmates. I think autogyro is a funny word. How about you?

3. Limit the biography to no more than a page in length....OOOOPS! 
Your band bio should be brief and well-written. No more than a couple paragraphs and definitely not more than a page.

4. Include all press mentions and highlights. 
You definitely want to highlight all of your greatest successes in your bio. Include any important blog or site mentions, awards, album releases, and notable performances.  
5. Proofread for spelling and grammar errors and have someone else double check it. 
Read through and edit your bio before sending it anywhere. Take out unnecessary sentenecs and check all spelling and grammar. Pass it over to a friend who is great with words and writing to double check it for you. 

6. Update the bio regularly as new things happen.  
As you move on and achieve more accomplishments, add or lose band members, or anything else you need to remember to update your bio accordingly. Remove outdated news whenever you add a more recent bit of information.
