The Two Masquerades

Years ago (2004 to be exact) in New York I recall putting pen to paper down and imagining a secret sexual community that I envisioned as a Masquerade. It was one of our more popular NEUROBOX tracks at the time and with the likes of cellist & harpsichord extraordinaire Dave Eggar laying out the string section I couldn’t help but imagine an “Eyes Wide Shut” setting within the context of the music. Fast forward to sometime last year, fellow spitfire…

The Art in Creating

They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks and more or less this holds true when it comes to my presence as a singer/songwriter.

VIZA & friends live at the Troubadour this Friday – July 26

It’s been a minute since I’ve hit the stage at the prestigious Troubadour (voted one of the top 10 clubs in America by Rolling Stone magazine) and needless to say I cannot wait. Ten years ago during an 8pm slot was the first time that I young and hungry K’noup along with Neurobox took the stage and from what I remember I may have been a little over emotional, why you ask?
