Aleksandra Siemieniuk plays resophonic, acoustic, electric and baritone guitar, and her guitar technique includes fingerpicking and slide. She is also author of papers on African-American musical styles. She performs on regular basis with Magda Piskorczyk, giving concerts in Poland and abroad. In 2011 she released her solo instrumental mini-album "World Looks Bad" based on original compositions.

??In 2002, she was granted scholarship to take part in International Guitar Seminars in New York where she polished her acoustic guitar and slide techniques with masters of acoustic guitar (i.e. Bob Brozman, Woody Mann). Musical explorations made her devote her M.A. thesis in sociology of culture to the study of evolution, significance and use of sound in black music. Extensive fragments were published in Polish musicology journal "Muzyka" ("Music"), issued by The Institute of Art of The Polish Academy of Sciences.??

Aleksandra choses to diverse musical climates – beginning with pure acoustic sound through alternative music and rock to various types of contemporary electronic music. She is fascinated with oriental instruments like oud or saz and ethnic music – transformed or not – e.g. traditional African, Arab or Turkish music. She is particularly fond of African-American tradition expressed in funk, soul, hip-hop, gospel or country blues. Those genres influenced her own music style and technique, compositions and arrangements.

Nyki Lindsay King

Tonight at Club Soda, the popular Montreal nightclub, all eyes and ears are focused on singer Nyki Lindsay King. Everyone in the filled-to-capacity space is captivated by his voice—which is both soulful and rocking—and his original alternative rock songs. However, it is much more than that which draws everyone in: a pure natural on stage, he completely connects with the crowd, which spurs him on to dig in, take risks—and reach new musical heights. The audience has that rare feeling that they are listening to a singular voice, and witnessing a unique performer. It is no surprise, then, that Nyki Lindsay King is regarded by many as one of the most original-sounding singers to come along in awhile. Born in Verdun, a small town outside of Montreal, there was never really any doubt that Nyki would end up playing music. His dad was a big influence: Eric Lindsay (aka, Youth Rass-E-Mung) had recorded reggae albums in Jamaica’s legendary Studio One and produced some of Montreal’s first reggae shows. By the time Nyki was four; his father was buying him musical instruments to inspire him. Within a few years, Nyki was onstage—along with his brothers Kwame and Tarie—performing as “The King Brothers.” They were immensely popular, performing throughout the 80s and sharing the stage with Ken Boothe, Alton Ellis, Paula Clarke and others. But Nyki would become much more than a child star. By ’92 he recorded two tracks in Jamaica, which were included on a compilation album, Fight Apartheid, distributed internationally. Also influenced by the current rock scene, including Kurt Cobain, Eddie Vedder, Raine Maida and Scott Weiland, in 1995 he fronted his first rock band (“Frantic”—with brother Tarie on drums) which played some major venues and in 2000 released Dinner At M’as. In 2003, Nyki released his debut solo album, Couch Potato, with SDR Music. And in 2005, he joined a group, One End Left (later renamed Magdalena). Besides writing and singing, Nyki contributed a lot of the arrangements as well the EP gained interest from some well known labels including Universal Music Group “I realized it’s my passion,” Nyki states, “Just the thought of being able to touch somebody …reach out to a total stranger who may be on the other side of the world and yet he or she can relate to what you write, because of a certain experience in life is moving to me.” And from that point he never looked back. Nyki’s fusing the music he grew up listening to as a child (the Doors, Zeppelin, Hendrix and even The Carpenters), the alternative/grunge rock of his adolescence, and the soulful reggae of his Jamaican ancestry, King creates music that is at once contemporary, and completely radio-friendly. His hard rock songs feature interesting arrangements, stop-on-a-dime breaks, and surprising, dissonant harmonies that set up kick-ass choruses. And although he has a voice that can drive an entire band, he’s also not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve; as in “One More Day”, when he sings, “The days between the years I always find are long. In my dreams tonight, I'll get away, from this world of pain, for one more day.” Nyki is currently seeking representation and a label, But no matter where Nyki Lindsay King ends up, we’re just glad to be along for the ride.

Here, Tim dove into the world of Contemporary Writing and Production, studying musical writing, arrangement and even conducted original music for several different independent projects.

As Tim’s work reached the ears of professional directors, corporations and marketing executives what had been a dream became reality: he was being paid to do what he loved. And, three years after moving back to southern California he had garnered enough interest in his music from industry professionals that he was able to devote all his energies on composing full-time. Tim opened a small office for “Composing the Score,” the company he had founded 4 years after moving back to California and wrote and composed full-time. Since that time two years ago, Tim has gone on to work on a number of national commercials and film projects for numerous companies including Disney, NBC, Public Storage, Kyocera and Infiniti Motors.

Silence and space will flurry into controlled mayhem like a whisper to a scream… — Joi Veer

Artist Profile

It is the song that drives this artist.  Never bound by “formula,” Joi’s music explodes through his gravitation to the guitar as his main songwriting tool.  His drumming background has given him a keen awareness of rhythm and percussion which bubbles beneath his signature vocals delivering waves of fluid melody.  An occasional splash of “world beat” flavor complements the ever-present electric and acoustic guitars.

The human experience and condition are his most fascinating palettes.  The interaction, perspective, and behavior of people are the substance of his lyrics which are woven through the fabric of infectious melodies.  Whether simple statements of emotion or a testimonial to Joi’s life experiences, the result is an extension of himself through brutally honest written songs delivered with conviction.  Joi constantly dares and re-defines his artistic license.  His songs are conceptually, lyrically and musically engaging in their dynamics.

Simon has recently been signed (Nov 2006) to the new visionary record label: Beatpick.com - FairPlay Music Label... In Sept 2007 Simon Wolfe, was selected for the soundtrack of a video created by the Majority Leaders’ Office of Steny Hoyer, in Washington D.C. '...The uplifting turn in the video is when Simon Wolfe’s “Power and Glory”, from his album 'Legends of Truth', takes over. The song is a powerful motivational vote for change.' "...From time to time we receive production music of a very high quality. This is is your case..." David d'Atri at Beatpick. Some of his work has recently featured in the World Music track CD released by Productiontrax... 'This stunning collection features 26 royalty free world music tracks from Partners In Rhyme, Tay Chee Wei, Really Free Music, Simon Wolfe, and many more Productiontrax.com artists.

Featuring real ethnic instruments from Asia, Africa, and the Pacific, this collection is a perfect match for nature films, documentaries, adventure programs, and childrens projects, and any other project seeking an authentic world sound.' His track 'Next to You' was chosen for the film HARD PILL (writer/director John Baumgartner starring Jonathan Slavin). Producers may choose from a large stock of existing material or tracks can be custom written and mastered quickly in most formats to specific project requirements. Credits include: 'Wall to Wall' Television UK (dinosaur documentary), 'Illuminations' UK (music written and arranged for a documentary on Captain Cook's painter, William Hodges on expeditions to Tahiti and India, featuring contributions by Sir David Attenborough). Simon has just completed a commission writing music for a documentary on paintings of first encounters between western traders and explorers and the peoples of the far east and India. The paintings comprised an exhibition at the Victoria and Albert museum, London in September 2004. The documentary was broadcast on CHANNEL 5 TV in Oct. 2004. Producer, Sebastian Grant of Illuminations Television commented: "...we were all really impressed with what you did with this one; you responded very well to a difficult brief and continued to respond to our changing demands. Some great and sympathetic compositions there." Once a brief is received, material can be written quickly for the client's requirements, with sensitivity to the client's particular budget and needs in each case. mp3 files can be 'to and frod' as email attachments quickly and easily for the client. Simon has also done commission writing for some local West country production companies, for example Smith and Watson Productions in Totnes, South Devon. He has also had material licensed for broadcast with music for media companies online. His most recent projects include music for 'building a dream' documentary - UK DISCOVERY CHANNEL and also WEST COUNTRY TV (product advertising) and SKY SPORT - middle east: (FORMULA 1, GREAT SPORTING MOMENTS, PREMIERSHIP FOOTBALL). Simon is the main driving force behind the project and has worked with a number of different musicians and artists at different stages. He approaches the songwriting projects with an ongoing development of the songs, so that the material is undergoing a constant metamorphic change and development, adapting pieces, reworking them, taking them in different directions. Some reviews appear below: Robert Silverstein at MWE.com commented: "... Got the Lions CD and I really enjoy it. It's kind of out there. Sort of Art Of Noise meets so...mething (it's late!)... and are there any other titles you've released." Derek Frederickson at Twisted Tracks commented: "...you've got depth to your arrangements and great production." "A new album by a new artist, Lions On The Beach is the debut CD from U.K. multi-instrumentalist Simon Wolfe. A fine guitarist and keyboardist, the album paints a broad palette of trance-inducing sounds incorporating influences like John Barry (check out the CD’s cool Harry Nilsson sample), Pink Floyd and The Chemical Brothers. Wolfe adds in some Floydian vocal touches to his mostly instrumental drum and bass groove. Cinematically influenced chill-out trance vibes abound and let’s hope Wolfe has the opportunity to release further editions."
