“What excites me most about music,” New York-based singer/songwriter Jennifer Lang says, is simple: “The sound… music is in the ocean. It’s in your heart beat. It’s in your spirit.” Raised in church singing with an appropriately titled family act “The Lang Family,” Jennifer’s introduction to music and public performing started at eight years old. She was also a member of her church choir and sang in the school choir through high school. Jennifer’s secular music education blossomed when Jennifer and her brother pulled out their mother’s records and listened to the greats of the day including Aretha Franklin and Al Green along with hundreds of others.

For someone so steeped in music that it touches her very soul, you would think music is the reason Jennifer moved all the way from Pine Bluff, Arkansas to The Big Apple in an effort to pursue her musical dreams. She was actually already living there, having been hired by a political action group to organize lower income neighborhoods to help them get better city services. While in training, Jennifer was hired by the telephone company. And like the old phone company slogan goes, Jennifer “reached out and touched someone” with her singing voice at work.

Jennifer knew that if there was ever a time and a place for her to “go for it,” it was in New York City. She prayed about it “and asked God to lead me and protect me and keep me in good company, because although I didn’t know everything about the music business, I did realize that there were stories of bad things happening to sweet little girls like me. I educated myself, I read books, talked to attorneys, attended seminars and then started recording.”

With the completion on her follow-up album, “3’O Clock Saturday”, Jennifer continues the love theme with soulful tales of failing, forgiveness and being happy at the end of it all.

I was born in 1976 in Reutlingen, Germany…played Bass in a small youth band at age 14…
When i was 17 i wanted to be a guitar player but ther were tooooo much of them…i founded a new band with friends and I turned from guitar to the Bass…was fun.. Took lessons…and later i GAVE lessons
Had a lot of Bands then…World Demise, we covered famous Metal and Rocksongs..wrote own stuff too and were popolar in the city among the youth, played at a big open Air, too..then Silence of Misery..had a few Gigs in our city.

MY first real Band with very good musicians was BLUE POWDER…a Progressive Rockband..during that time i learned so much…it was in 1996 – 1998 then the band split up and i joined a Rockband called BROKEN WINGS.
We had alot of live gigs…played at the Emergenza Live Festival Competition and made the 10th Place out of A LOT OF Bands. We played for example in the Rockfabrik Ludwigsburg or the LKA in Stuttgart-Wangen, had a Date at a Radio station too between some gigs.

It was a nice time but i wanted to be more creative , wanted it a little bit harder so i joined NOPLIES in 1999…and stayed there until 2003…we recorded 2 CD..s : 1999 FOLLOW THE RAINBOW which got a very good feedback in the MEtal HAmmer Demo Zone in 2000, and 2002 PIRATE TALES which was another Great Album too! Also here very good feedback from rthe STAY HEAVY! MEtal Magazine and others

Played a lot of live gigs and won the BATTLE OF BANDS 2000 Competition…this was my best time as a musician. I left NOPLIES in 2003..
I needed something new, joined CHYRON with my buddy and former Blue Powder singer Jürgen Elsell and recorded a Demo CD called “SIGNS” We had only one Live Gig, an Open Air, nothing spectacular.
In 2004-2005 i was part of a studio Project with Guitarist Massimo Lia and Singer Jürgen Elsell who was also my mate in BLUE POWDER and CHYRON. We recorded some Songs but it split up after a few time…
After 5 years of retiring from the music scene i planned to do my own Homerecording Solo Project ! I had so much ideas during the last yearsso I built my own little Homerecording Homestudio and wrote songs, recorded them with my Singer Denis Hübner…I do the whole music stuff alone..play the bass, the guitars…write lyrics and do some background vocals if needed…program the Drums and Synthesizers..

PHASE REVERSE
They started as a trio on October 2007.
The three of them meet at John’s recording studio, and they decide to join their forces.
It was clear from the very beginning that there was chemistry between them, and everything seemed to be very promising. John was the part of the puzzle that was missing all these years… His unique style, sound, and “fresh” approach, got the best out of Alex and Tas. After lots of live performances and a year later they hit the studio and record 11 songs that signal the birth of “PHASE REVERSE”…
Blues, Rock’ N’ Roll, Hard Rock, and Heavy Metal all sonically mix while the American Southern Rock is set as a background all processed in a “PHASE REVERSE” mode resulting in the particular
and simultaneously modern sound of the band.
They called it ”Heavy Rock” and this was something new for the Greek Rock and Metal scene in 2007.
One thing is for sure, that we are dealing with some genuine rockers that their songs simply and genuinely declare their presence in their own unique way with a voice of their own at a time that is characterized by labels… in their own words:
“…our music is just Rock…Heavy Rock!”

· “Phase Reverse” released their Debut CD on 07 Dec 2009 available on the Greek market only
and digitally at: Amazon – e Music – iTunes – Napster & Rapsody.

· Oct 2009: “Phase Reverse” participate in STREETCULT cd #13 with their song “I Got Your Back” a compilation cd by Eclipse Records distributed only in the U.S.

· Jan 2010: “Phase Reverse” have been chosen among 1.500 indie artists from all genres globally to participate in “PLAYLIST 7” the new music campaign for Windows 7 sponsored by Microsoft.

. Jan 2011 : “Phase Reverse” are selected among thousands of artists from allover the world, to participate to AonMedia’s ”Gods Of Indie Guitar” Compilation CD featuring :”the best Independent or unsigned guitarists between Planet earth & Alone on the Sun!” Their song ”Cross to bear” will be one of the 17 tracks of the CD and this is a great honor for Chief, Phase Reverse and for the whole Greek Independent Music Scene !

. Sep 2011 : “Phase Reverse” have inked a multi-album deal with Aural Music !
Aural Music will re-release their debut album titled “Phase Reverse” in December 16, 2011 worldwide!
The new release will have a bonus track ”Tear Down the Walls”. This song was recorded during their first album recordings but wasn’t included in the first release because it was never finished. So now they decided to include it in the new worldwide release since the song is already a part of the album.

. Sep 2012 Tas left the band for personal reasons.
Takis Mark (Vocals) and Kostas Dragon-K (bass) are the new members of the band and all together
are working on new music in the studio for the release of their second album.

They are also touring in Greece and Europe.

Vin – MzMuffin 2012 with lyrics ( from the album Immuffulation)


Growing up in Riga, Latvia (formally the USSR) and now residing in Long Beach California for the past twelve years, Maxim Senin learned early on the value of learning to play and perform music. With both parents playing the piano it was their desire to give him a solid musical education, and for him to understand and appreciate music; learning with classical music training. When he was in the first grade, his parents got him a violin, but he quickly lost interest. They attempted to teach Maxim the piano. The problem was that the family was poor and could not afford a piano for him to practice on. While in the fourth grade, his parents bought him a clarinet which he learned how to play classical and jazz relatively well. At this point, Maxim’s interest in music subsided. It wasn’t until college when many of his friends played music and were in bands that his interest in music was once again peaked. Since then he has not looked back and continues to write and perform music.
A software engineer by trade, and also a private pilot, Maxim Senin’s love for music is now a large part of his life and is deeply engraved in his daily thoughts and actions. His preference in music is laid-back rock and a touch of folk with an emphasis on his lyrical composition. Choosing love and love triangles as themes for his music and songs, betrayal and unanswered love looms over and is easily detected in his sound. Aside from love tragically gone wrong, Maxim has a great appreciation for songs that are reflective, with a twist and plot in the story line, and that have hope and humor in them. His music comes both from what he observes around him and emotions within that is vented through his lyrics and musical composition.
Citing influences such as Mark Knopfler, J.J. Cale, and Eric Clapton, Maxim finds himself inspired by the likes of Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd, Sting, and Roxette while also enjoying the music of other icon artists like Coldplay, Duran Duran, U2, The Who, Grateful dead, and Oasis. Although at this stage in his music career, Maxim has not really played any high profile arena type performances mainly because that’s not really his thing. “I’m not a big fan of large crowds”, states Maxim, I also think that my music, at least at the moment, is to be heard by people on their couches or in their cars, not 10,000-seat stadiums. Although, if I had one dream I’d like to fulfill, I wouldn’t mind playing a duet with Clapton or Sting”.
As a multi-instrumentalist, Maxim played every instrument on his debut EP release “The Taming of the Wolf” including the acoustic guitar, piano, ukulele, harmonica, keyboard, and all percussions. Maxim has great aspirations for the success of the new release. When asked if he could retain his artistic integrity with increased commercial success he replied with no hesitation, “I think yes. I’m open-minded about learning from other artists and listening to friends’ advice, but at the same time I think I am on the way of developing my own unique style. That doesn’t mean, however, that this style won’t evolve over time”.
With his debut EP release The “Taming of the Wolf”, Maxim Senin has only just begun. He has plans to promote the record vigorously and hopes to release a full length album by the end of 2012. The Taming of the Wolf is available for sale at CD Baby and by digital download on iTunes along with many other online distribution outlets.
