The Great Escape
What is your greatest Escape? Where would you go if you could? Would it be far away? Or very close to your heart?
Welcome to The Great Escape. We are a band from Los Angeles, California.
We met each other writing songs for other artists. But soon we realized we needed to create something that resonates with us. With who we are. With where we come from. With our roots. We love the 60′s. The 70′s. When Rock, Soul, Blues and Folk was raw. Unpolished. So we had a lot of fun capturing the moment. The vibe. The heart.
The Great Escape is Amie Miriello, Malte Hagemeister and Kristian Nord. Thanks for finding us. Just close your eyes. Listen. And follow your heart.
Flavia & The Red
Los Angeles-based band, Flavia & The Red, has shot onto the music scene like a bullet. The principal singer and songwriter is 22-year-old Flavia Watson. Born in California, but raised through her formative years in Ireland and Italy, Flavia exhibits a traveled and seasoned prowess that most women her age lack. Equipped with a sultry and soulful voice, her presence is the personification of the color red—emotional, fiery, and passionate.
But a talented front woman is only as good as her band. Since its inception in 2010, Flavia & The Red has shown tremendous growth gigging and captivating audiences nationwide. After various lineup changes, the band now consists of Chris Pucher on guitar, Rich Brown on keys, Max Benson on bass and Chris Toeller on drums. Each member contributes his and her own unique qualities and influences to the secret recipe that is The Red’s musically energetic and soulful brew. The band’s overall sound contains elements of classic and modern R&B, pop, and rock. Anchored by a tight rhythm section, the music exhibits memorable melodies and interactive improvisation with Flavia’s emotional and poetic lyrics at the forefront.
The band has been touring and promoting their debut album, Too Late to Cry, which was released in December of 2012. In the summer of 2013, they successfully organized their first national tour, where they performed in the Southwest and Midwest. When not on the road they can be seen at the hottest clubs and lounges in LA, including a bi-monthly residency at Nic’s Martini Lounge in Beverly Hills. In the Summer of 2012 they were chosen from hundreds of bands nationwide to go to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and perform at Summerfest, the world’s largest music festival. There, they won 2nd place at the Land the Big Gig Competition.
Flavia & The Red is taking the future into its own hands and will continue to grow as it has over the last few years. They have already been featured on various blogs and magazines, including the cover story for LA lifestyle magazine, Back Seat Quarterly, and in Dublin, Ireland’s Intallaght Magazine. They are currently on rotation for various radio stations around the U.S and performed live on television for WGN, as well as on Park City Television in Park City, Utah. They are constantly writing new material, planning more tours across the country, and have a new album in the works.

Since 2005, iPunx has been one of Europe’s great mashup pioneers. After touring massively in and around Germany, he’s landed with a mashed-up crash here in Venice, CA.
In the initial 3 smash EP’s and seamless mashup album “Destroying Dancefloor”, IPunx showcased an eclectic mix of house, rock, hiphop, punk and electro, ending up in many DJ charts around the world, including BBC Pete Tong’s Buzz charts (#3). Initially a duo, and in spite of years of successful touring, the two members of iPunx parted ways in the late 2000′s to pursue individual careers.
After relocating to LA, a now solo iPunx resurrected the project in 2013. A music producer and composer during the day, it was time to play with the unorthodox mix/mashes he truly loves. “Anybody can DJ hits. I wanna play obscure stuff that is entertaining as well. I love the surprise element”. The excitement is infectious! In West LA, iPunx fan base is growing fast.
iPunx sound ranges from chill sunrise sets with little known acoustic covers to party sets with funky mashups and remixes that combine electro, hip-hop, dub step, rock, pop, soul, folk, funk and party breaks. His credo: “Never originals. Always fun.” What’s the crowd’s reaction? ” Usually, WTF is that?” And then their hips are shaking and they’re singing along with giant smiles plastered on their faces.
iPunx has played crazy fun parties in 2013 in Joshua Tree, Baja, CA and with Boogaloo and Dirty Beetles at Burning Man. You can groove live to his mixalicious mashups weekly at The Bank of Venice on the Windward Circle. Check out www.iPunx.com for upcoming performances and new releases.
