Mickey Avalon
Mickey Avalon
With a childhood rough enough to guarantee him rock star success, by the time he was out of his teenage years -- at least according to the few details he's given -- Mickey Avalon had sold pot (with his mother), been addicted to heroin and dope, worked as a graffiti artist in L.A., converted to Orthodox Judaism (his parents were both non-practicing Jews, and his paternal grandparents were survivors of Auschwitz), got married and had a daughter, prostituted himself for drug money, watched his father die, and found his sister's dead body. All of this gave ample material for his rhymes, which he started writing after his pal, the former MTV VJ Simon Rex, encouraged him to compose his own songs. Avalon, Rex (who rapped under the name Dirt Nasty), and Armen Melik (aka Andre Legacy) began recording and releasing their own material as the Dyslexic Speedreaders, an irreverent group that gave a satirical and often lascivious look into the L.A. club and drug culture.

Avalon's stage presence, which mixed a kind of hyper- and often ambiguous sexuality akin to the trashy glam rockers of the '70s, gained the attention of DJ and aspiring manager Kev-E-Kev, who was soon helping Avalon hawk his self-titled CD -- wrapped in a newspaper advertising adult services -- on the streets. His music, in particular the song "Jane Fonda," thanks to its appearance in the HBO series Entourage as well its availability on his MySpace site, started gaining an audience, and in 2006 his album was reissued as the first release from MySpace Records in joint collaboration with Interscope.
Raw Blake
Raw Blake
Since childhood, Blake has been blessed as a wordsmith with a very high intellect that claimed the lives of his influential teachers who showed him the steps to writing couplets, ballads, and haiku's. He was a Spelling Bee Champion, a Boggle unbeatable, and a Scrabble legend!

Raw Blake is a subject of the streets of LA and the chic of South OC, California. When both cultures immerse into the lungs and heart of a lyrical phenom, out comes a paved genre, "Coastal Hip-Hop". As of now, Blake has been focusing his attention on solely making freaky styley tunes for the ears of his listeners (All you Chili Pepper fans know exactly what I am talking about). Currently residing in San Clemente, CA, he has made an impact in the community around him with his verbal assault on beats bumped daily. In the works is a "Coastal Rock/Hip-Hop" album that will be released in the Summer of 2013. This album will contain all original and live instruments.

He envisions the day when the soul will be put back into making music and the funk will warm your bones once again. Wouldn't it be great to have legends take the stage once again? Well I know where to find one...
