Amy and Nick are Karmin, an incredibly lovable, genre-bending pop duo with remarkably memorable high-energy live performances. Their sound is a wholly original, infectious blend of hip-hop, pop and rock, which is complimented by their signature monochromatic visual style. Karmin is the first fan-discovered group to translate from "viral sensation" to "headline tour status" with over half a billion YouTube views and double platinum sales; since their launch into the mainstream, they've blitzed the world with their perpetual touring schedule and debut TV performance on SNL leading into major appearances across radio, print, TV and film.
It's been said that the perfect recording artist has a solid grasp of vocals and lyrics, and in Lyrica Anderson's case, she seamlessly has both. The Los Angeles native cut her teeth in songwriting for other artists, including The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Young Jeezy, Hillary Duff, Jennifer Hudson, and Filipina singer Charice, which earned her a Number 1 on the U.S. Hot Dance Billboard Charts. She notably collaborated with Timbaland on his Shock Value 2.
Since 2012, Anderson has been busy developing a promising solo career, releasing her debut album King Me, and following it up this year, with the highly anticipated King Me 2, featuring key collaborations with Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign, YG, and DJ Mustard. As Lyrica begins her King Me 2 movement, her songwriting career continues to flourish. She is nominated for a Grammy for Best Latin Pop Album, as a songwriter on Frankie J's Faith, Hope Y Amor. She's also continuing her songwriting and has upcoming releases with Jennifer Hudson, Keri Hilson, Machine Gun Kelly, and Young Jeezy. One way or another, Lyrica Anderson will be a household name. "Timbaland always told me: 'Make yourself hot,' and that's what I'm here to do," Lyrica says. "I've finally come to the point where my music sounds how I want it to. It all fits perfectly now."
PAZ is a musician, street artist, and a social media magnet from LA, known as much for his subversive street art (he once snuck photos of himself into the Grammy museum and stole Paris Hilton's birthday cake, giving it to the homeless), as his pioneering work in electronic music.
Acting as a writer, producer and instrumentalist, he immediately incorporated musicality into his works and began rewriting & remixing major artists' tracks, thus turning them into completely new works. Big producers, including Diplo and UZ, took notice and PAZ landed on the recent MAD Decent album with Baauer & Trinidad James. With over 1 million download of his past two albums and gigs opening for Girl Talk, Big Sean and Knife Party, mainstream awareness is at a fever pitch and PAZ is ready to take over the world!
This year, in an effort to draw attention to the difficulty independent artists have getting their music into retail stores, PAZ replaced every copy of Justin Bieber's Believe in Los Angeles with a copy of his new mixtape From the Bottom of My Heart to the Top of Your Lungs. Over 5,000 shrink-wrapped and bar-coded CDs were smuggled into hundreds of big box stores in the LA area including Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart, Best Buy and Barnes & Noble.
From the Bottom of My Heart to the Top of Your Lungs is an independent release featuring collaborations with some of EDM's biggest rising stars such as Dillon Francis, Crywolf, Porter Robinson, Kill the Noise, Bassnectar, and Syn Cole. PAZ's first single from the mixtape, "The Silence", was released on March 5, 2014 to rave reviews from several electronic music blogs, including EDM Sauce, Superbangers, Hype Hits, and Knack for Tracks.
PAZ also has 3 new tracks coming out on MAD Decent with UZ, on Skrillex's label OWSLA, and on Steve Aoki's Dim Mak with Dirty Audio.
