KRONiS is happening

So we needed a band name and a logo to enter the KLOS Next2Rock Search contest. Quickly we sent in ‘SparklePigeon’ for ‘I’m Not Sorry’.SparklePigeon black

I received a positive message from KLOS regarding my song…

At burning man, I’m SparklePigeon. Why? Come and find out. It’s not a ziggy stardust thing.
I had a girlfriend in 2013 with me who may be able to explain it to you if you can find her and her baked goods.

KRONiS performing the song ‘Change’ as SparklePigeon (what we signed up for the contest as) at the Viper Room August 26th, 201th on Sunset Blvd, Hollywood.

I know because I only wore that ‘pigeon jacket’ for the first song. Special *heart-felt thanks* to Sherrie & Henry for hooking that up!

Anyhow. Seeing as I hope to jam with festival friends like the Heavy Meta tribe (Future Viking) and other marketing initiatves that stretch too far beyond the reach of burner humor (exit SparklePigeon, enter: KRONiS) Plus the sheer fact that I don’t want to evolve INTO a pigeon in my next life…(thanks Z) and honest feedback (<3 Georgia). I’ve decided to get back to the basics and go with my true self. Who I am.

After my lead guitar role in THERMOclinE in Ottawa, Canada…. I had to do something on my own, but there was only one band. THERMOclinE. So I had to be ‘A.S.K.’ which appeased my parents as it is my initials… but after a while… things like hearing Norm say ‘I play bass in the Aaron Stanley Kronis band‘ seemed very odd to me!

I went to the USA via Ohio/Michigan… down there I started performing as KRONiS.

Special *Ohio *Michigan peeps.Thanks goes out to Alex Sandstrom, Kelly Weaver, Jay Parrit, our amazing road crew, Chris and Brian Roth, AJ and Josh too. 

Then I moved to LA to make it happen and spent several years immersing myself in the EDM scene to get an understanding of the culture and the music.

To me… dubstep is kinda like heavy metal.. the heavy Serum synths take up that similar range.. but the ‘old man rock’ beats from my last records are all pretty much only good for verses… then we need DROPs.

I’ve been waiting for something that’s been missing all my life… and it appears to be adding ‘the drop‘ to my music.

So there you go.

I found XLNTSound thanks to friends in the industry and I have never been happier with the outcome. We managed to get asked to perform at VIPER ROOM on August 26th for a radio station thing. I’m happy that we were able to get that going so (3 songs into the project) early on. I’ve been lucky to work with Electronic Creatives and talented drummer Andy Sanesi making this live show happen.

Ernie Ball MusicMan – my favorite two guitars.. JP6s.. .2000 (silver sparkle) 2002 (gold)

With support from people like Max Wasa (listen to her radio show) who introduced me to Andy and my almost guru Tracey Wiedeman (FOLLOW HER) (TmanagementRocks.com) who connected me to Max… ahhh hollywood.
