We attended Berklee College Of Music 10 years apart:
Mike - '89
Tom - '99
Boyan - '09
Cool, but why stick figures?
As an Original Artist we have chosen a tough path by playing music with no vocals and stylistically too diverse, so we need attention focused on the music, not the visuals.
The artwork on our first album was done by hand with just a sharpie, and in true DIY spirit Mike Levesque contributed the stick figures the same way. The stick figures are here to stay.
Come to a gig: stick figures can play.
