About Kris Doty Band
Over the last two years, Kris Doty has built a loyal, enthusiastic fan base in Boise, Idaho. 2007 finds Kris and her band ready to share their sound with a much larger audience, as they begin touring and sharing stages with such artists as Banyan, DJ Logic, the Willie Waldman Project, and Dead Meadow. Kris is currently promoting her first album, Smoke in the Mirror, eight stunning songs that range in style, tone, and subject matter from the playfully epic to the disarmingly intimate. Nick Collias of the Boise Weekly described Kriss voice as a blast-off into the upper strata of the bansheesphere. The Idaho Statesman wrote that Kris brings a mixed musical background to her workclassical voice, jazz bass [upright], and a folk-rock sensibility, and noted that the multi-talented Kris Doty can write a song that breaks your heart, pull a pretty sweet long shot of espresso, and occasionally dance with knives. And also in the Boise Weekly, Amy Garrett wrote of Kris: She holds the audience in the palm of her hand, unraveling the mystery between her unassuming sweetness and the force and emotion of her voice. Kris admits, ..I guess Im kinda intense. I want it to mean something. I want people to be moved. false 292844 KrisDotyBand http://www.myspace.com/krisdoty 1 — 42342 Billy Matheny Billy Matheny 0 firstname.lastname@example.org false 292844 BillyMatheny 0 — 42344 Johnny Rabb’s BioDiesel BioDiesel 0 email@example.com BioDiesel lies in razor thin space between band and dj, synthetic and human, man and machine.
On one end you have drumming legend Johnny Rabbpioneer of freehand technique, who has performed and given clinics the world over. Recognized as an inventor, author, educator and the original World’s Fastest Drummer, Johnny is able to execute his passion for live electronic music in ways that few (if any) others are able. His high rhythmic plateau is the foundation on which BioDiesel is constructed.
Add Clay Parnell who is known throughout North America as bassist for Brothers Past – one of the premiere bands blending rock and electronic music. Urb put their latest studio effort at the top of the growing pile of genre bending releases.” Performing regularly with what reads like a who’s who list in the edm and livetronica world, Clay has emerged as the “go to” bassist in this rapidly expanding genre.
As if the parts aren’t powerful enough, the real story is the sum that is BioDiesel when Johnny and Clay take the stage. Sharing writing and production duties, the two are able to pull off their sometimes complex arrangements utilizing the latest technology the world has to offer. The result is an ensemble that is as powerful and majestic as it is sleek and streamlined. Whether performing their original compositions or their crowd-pleasing live-dance remixes, BioDiesel delivers. Though generally a duo, one never knows who will be joining BioDiesel on stage. Their format so easily allows for guest sit-ins that many BioDiesel performances have produced heavy-weight, one of a kind collaborations.
