In this life, we spend our days in blissful ignorance as to what lies ahead. We work, we play, we dream, we live. In this chain of every days, there is sometimes a beginning, like any other, that is fated to hold within it a moment forever life altering, and sometimes life feeding.

March 18th, 2011 was the day Nicki Thrailkill and Gareth Asher’s worlds collided. Two souls met under a full moon’s sky, on the same patch of earth, in the same blink in time. Two souls – discovering in each other someone to keep safe and sound throughout this adventure of living. On the second day, they wrote about it; breathing into existence the musical manifestation of love and wonder; pouring from their hearts to yours the magic that lies deep beneath the skin and bones of us all, waiting to be released.

This music is like a raw, uncut stone with hidden magic. Hold it in your hands, your hearts, your souls. Feel the vibration and be healed.

Keaton Simons
Keaton Simons plays music simply because he has to. With an extensive palate including a degree in Ethnomusicology, Keaton's craving for a diverse musical adventure has pushed him into many different genres. He's worked as a writer, musical director, singer, bassist and guitarist with notable acts like Gnarls Barkley, Black Eyed Peas, Snoop Dogg and Tre Hardson of the L.A. alternative rap group The Pharcyde. In addition, Keaton has found himself opening for Coldplay, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar and Train, writing with Jason Mraz and Hanson, producing a song for Disney teen star Nolan Sotillo (a Keaton composition, We Could Be Anything, in the new film Prom), and acting as the face of Advanced Guitar for the new Xbox game Rocksmith.

It is when performing his own songs, whether in the studio, alone on acoustic guitar or electric with his full band, that Keaton Simons truly shines. The energy and passion that Keaton brings to his work is as infectious as his lyrics and as soul stirring as his melodies. It is because of that immediate connection demanded by Keaton and his songs that many have been heard in dozens of feature films and television shows, including NCIS, Numb3rs, Malcolm in the Middle and Crash. It also doesn't hurt that Keaton himself is as down-to-Earth and genuinely appealing as his music. Go to one of Keaton's shows and you're as likely to see teenagers dancing in front as you are to see people 20-years older sitting in back, all drawn together by the universal appeal of his music.

Keaton has produced music with Mikal Blue (Colbie Caillat, One Republic), The Matrix (Avril Lavigne, Liz Phair) and David Bianco (Tom Petty, Bob Dylan), and has released albums both independently and through major labels, most recently 2008's Can You Hear Me on CBS Records. In 2011, Keaton Simons finds himself putting the final touches on a co-produced album with Mikal Blue, set for release in late-2011/early-2012, and preparing to spend time on the road, gaining fans the old fashioned way: One song at a time.
