Artist Information Biography: Stereofix a rock band from Orange County, California with objective to write big with arresting vocal melodies, crafted guitar hooks and combined music styles from the 1980s and 1990s with modern music. A band that constantly embraces new elements into their musical repertoire in every new project. Formed in 2004 and made up of Ray Alexander (vocals), Kamren Alexander (guitar, vocals), Mark Allan (bass), Anthony Hainsworth (drums, percussion). 'Stereofix delivers a striking sound that is shaping to America's new favorite rock band' - Hollywood Daily 2007 Ray Alexander started a rock band called the "The Spun" right out of high school, embarked by three chords and their first official band session in a storage complex which was all the spark needed. Ray's brother Kamren Alexander played bass. Kamren was originally a guitar player who filled in the low end specifically for this project. The band quickly gained a following playing the local Orange County and Los Angeles hot spots including Ian Copeland's club, owner of the Backstage Cafe and one of music's top agent's. Months later the less motivated members left the band to pursue other interests and "The Spun" transformed. With Kamren Alexander going back to his guitar playing roots he started honing in on songwriting and tone crafting skills; Ray continued writing. The reformation of a new group started with Mark Allan, a co-worker of Ray who had been playing bass, unbeknownst to his singing work mate. Ray, Mark, and Kamren didn't waste time booking studio time. The foundation of Stereofix was set. The trio placed an advert for a drummer in an O.C. newspaper and myspace. After a few months and plenty interesting auditions, Anthony Hainsworth joined the group. Rigorous rehearsals commenced. In 2006 the group released the second EP called "Stray" followed by the release of the EP "Life Starts Here" in 2007 which sold over 300 copies of the demo while playing to audiences throughout Orange County and Los Angles. In 2007 Stereofix went in the studio again to record their latest EP the "Warning Sign" which was recored at Firehouse Studios and mixed by Mark Needham whose client list includes My Chemical Romance, The Killers and more. The band also worked with Joe Zook whose works include One Republic and more. The EP was released early 2008 and is taking with audiences and fans all over. In March the song "The Best Days" which is on the EP was nominated for best Rock song at the 2008 Orange County Music Awards. In 2008 Stereofix has also started work supporting non-profit foundations by making appearances and performing at high profile events including The Playboy Mansion from which proceeds will go to support the efforts of U.S. Doctors for Africa who in partnership with Usher's New Look Foundation and Louisiana State University will establish new medical and mental health services and for Rock for MS, MSFriends who has established a powerful, high profile presence in three of the most important music and photography centers in this country: San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York.
