Michael Jost

Born in Dreieich, just outside of Frankfurt Germany, guitarist Michael Jost (pronounced ‘yoast’), found his way to the bohemian Venice Beach boardwalk, in Los Angeles California, where he now lives and makes music.

Owing to Michael’s unique European heritage, his rigorous classical training, and his 21st Century American experience, you can hear something very different in his passionate, Spanish-style guitar. Michael’s travel companion is Miss Lucy, a Flamenca guitar built by Tomas Delgado of Candelas Guitars. She has a strong character, with a warm and beautiful sound.

Michael has a unique sound. His music is a journey in time and space fueled by his passion for music and his instrument. His influences are very multicoloured and involve different styles, continents and time periods from Paco De Lucia and Stravinsky to Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd.

No two of Michael’s live performances are ever the same, drawing from his recent albums, Zeitlos and California Burning, as well as unreleased songs from his upcoming album, Concierto.

Zeitlos is a timeless and unique blend of acoustic, classical and flamenco styles, entwined with the sounds and soul of Venice, California. His earlier album, California Burning, is a psychedelic fusion of electric and acoustic guitar. more Michael Jost »

Fake 3rd Person
Manifesto
Why we play music:

For the love of it. Because we’re hungry. To make people happy and dance. To make all the pretty girls cry. Because we’re high. Because we’re low. Because we’re drunk or ascetic. Because we can’t in good conscience do anything else.

Bio 1:
Here is some fake 3rd person:

Paul Chesne (born June 4, 1976) is an American rock n’ roll singer-songwriter and guitarist.

He has traveled throughout the United States and played well over 1200 shows since 1999 including cutting his teeth playing upwards of 150 times at the infamous Kibitz Room in Canter’s Deli. He also held court with a 9 year residency at O’Brien’s Pub in Santa Monica.

Oceanator

Immense amounts of wonder and power are often found tucked away in the most dark and unpredictable parts of the ocean. In much the same way, immense amounts of wonder and power can be found throughout Brooklyn, NY solo artist Oceantor’s work– even in the most dark and unpredictable moments.

Elise Okusami has been a musician since the tender age of 9 years old when she first learned to play guitar. Her current force of nature quality is clearly inspired by a lifelong intense passion for music. In the 4th grade, soon after learning guitar, Okusami started her first band with her brother and a few friends. She hasn’t slowed since then, also having drummed for multiple projects in New York. As she eventually grew into her solo musical endeavor, Oceanator, Okusami has exemplified the sheer power of her project’s namesake through and through.

VPO

The Venice Philharmonic Orchestra current lineup consists of Michael Jost on electric guitar, Hailey Demian on bass, Andy Kravitz on drums and Barry Conley on the OutofControl-atron.

The first use of ‘philharmonic’ was in London in 1813. An organisation was founded called the Philharmonic Society. The word ‘philharmonic’ translates to ‘music lover’. The sources I’ve found say this was taken from the French ‘philharmonoque’, but I think it is more likely that the word was taken right from the Greek. Greek is much more fashionable than French – especially if you’re living in London in 1813.
