:::: PEGASUS WARNING ::::
PEGASUS WARNING is the soulful noise&B brainchild of frontman Guillermo E. Brown. Pegasus Warning boasts a compelling brand of neo-punk funk and eerie Mad Max-era post-apocalyptic glam aesthetic that makes him a truly unique identity within the scene. Self-identified as a deconstructed R&B artist, who writes music to challenge ways of thinking about life and love. Check out his video song called "Change"
:::: KITTEN KUROI ::::
As a professional singer and songwriter, she has worked with and traveled the world with artists like Natasha Beddingfield, Jon B, Engelbert Humperdinck, Pixie Lott, Queen Latifah, Ashley Roberts of the Pussy Cat Dolls and many more. There is no way to pigeon-hole this cross-genre chanteuse. From Rock to Pop, Soul to Jazz, she can do it all...and then some. Though her rich voice can handle the tenderness of a somber jazz song, add a dash of vocal acrobatics to an upbeat R&B or Pop song, her powerful pipes are unmatched when it comes to Rock! She will be performing a number of covers and written songs.
