end roulette BIOGRAPHY:
end roulette is a four piece alternative indie rock band based in los angeles, ca. founded in 2007 by singer, songwriter and guitar player mary jane snow. mj grew up in a suburb of minneapolis and began playing music at age 7 on an ocean blue accordian rented from a local music school. following a psychedelic experience at the glastonbury music festival in england, at 22 mary jane made the bold move to hollywood to start a band. "it was my own epic journey into the many different ways of saying i'm sorry and thank you," says snow of her burgeoning concept material. snow's songwriting strength attracted fellow band members angel dogman (lead guitar), rocko (bass) and chip salsa (drums), to quickly join her in the pursuit. using mj's original demo material, the band played their first show on february 14, 2007 at the universal city walk in universal city, CA.
end roulette released their first EP "deadstock rock" on february 22, 2008 under the name hazelden. the early success of the band prompted a cease and desist letter by the hazelden drug treatment center claiming dilution of their famous internationally trademarked name. the band officially changed its name to end roulette (an oscar wilde reference) just prior to an appearance on MTV's "Road to the VMAs" program, where they were nominated in the 2008 "Best Breakout Artist" category. end roulette are currently writing their first album as a collaborative effort, starting with fan favorite "paper bullets," which instantly grabbed the attention of several radio stations, record labels and managers out of curiosity for the new group. paper bullets, the first track off of their follow-up EP "A Rival Sad" (released january 25, 2010), went on to win the 17th Annual Billboard Music Songwriting Competition in the category of rock music.
end roulette have been an opening band for the new york dolls and can be heard on KROQ 106.7 in their local los angeles market.
