MusicDish Network, the artist development department of MusicDish LLC, a leading music magazine publisher and marketing firm, announced the addition of New York-based alternative rock band The Love Kills Theory to its roster. MusicDish will provide full online management support, including brand development and marketing, as well as representation at major music conferences such as New Music West 2007, NXNE and Popkomm.
"Like many musicians on our roster, Cevin is a 'renaissance' man, melding musician, writer, filmmaker and artist all into one," noted MusicDish founder Eric de Fontenay. "This is definitely reflected in The Love Kills Theory, which he himself calls 'as much a manifesto as a band'."
The Love Kills Theory is an artistic attempt to bring contemporary philosophy into the mainstream where it can be accessible and relevant. The group is fronted by Cevin Soling, who is also known as the Messiah of Tanna and currently studying philosophy for his Masters degree at Harvard University. The Love Kills Theory is based on an amalgam of the works of Guy Debord, founder of Situationist International, Aldous Huxley, and others, fused with the current bio-genetic studies on the evolution of despair.
The rest of the band is made up of great musicians. Keyboardist, Bill Brandau had been a member of The Vinnie Barbarino Experience. When they broke up, he and Cevin formed Cevin's first band, The Neanderthal Spongecake where Bill also served as engineer on all their recordings. Darren Pilato is a music nerd, who—when he wasn't attending law school—notated bass lines to songs for fun; he's attended Victor Wooten's bass camp in Nashville twice. Jaron Stewart can't stay still; raised by a father who was a successful figure skater, Jaron had a career as a ski-jumper and then focused on his music career, actually gigging one night with "American Pie" songwriter Don McLean. Jim Minics is also a philosopher, and for several years has been thinking and writing his "random thoughts of a practicing beach bum." Jim's 2003 band Minix was a semi-finalist in the Independent Music World Series, and he's played for several bands in the studio and on tours as a lead guitarist and vocalist.
