Biography

Nixon Nation is a 3-piece original rock band out of Baltimore, Maryland, signed to an indie label JetSpeed Records from Hollywood, California. The band currently has an enormous international indie buzz with tens of thousands of fans on their very popular myspace site (www.myspace.com/nixonnationband). In addition, their music has been featured in 2 MTV/Spike TV Productions entitled, "Tripped Out" and "10 Things Every Guy Should Experience". For the last several months, the band has maintained a Top 10 position in the Maryland MySpace Top Artists Chart.

The band consists of Kevin M. Thomas on lead vocals and bass, Josh Miller (songwriter for the band) on guitar and background vocals, and Billy Esposito on drums and background vocals. Their sound, a mixture of many of Josh’s favorite songwriters, Nirvana, Queens Of The Stone Age and Sting, fused with Kevin’s Iron Maiden influences as well as Billy’s Steely Dan and REM influences, create a flavor all their own.

Nixon Nation is using the Internet to its fullest and has built a large network of fans. These are cultivated by Nixon Nation’s lead singer Kevin, and then passed on to a driven group of loyal individuals and believers, an organization they call ‘THE EMPIRE’, which handles everything from Fan Coordination and Street Teaming to Retail and Radio Promotion. Filling up rooms in Baltimore and Ocean City, Nixon Nation is carefully preparing to spread the network throughout the Northeast and beyond.

One layer beyond ‘THE EMPIRE’, are the band’s most loyal ladies, called the ‘Nixon Vixens’. These ‘Vixens’ are constantly spreading the word, and preparing their entry into a new market. They even had a busload of fans follow them to their NYC debut at the Lion’s Den on one of the rainiest nights of the year.

The band has recently added Baltimore entertainment attorney, Kathy Jarmiolowski to their team, and has signed with Cindy da Silva of Jolly Roger Management in hopes to take Nixon Nation to the next level and beyond.

Nixon Nation’s CD, "13 songs", is available at CD Baby, iTunes, and select stores in the Northeast.

Lyrics

Radio

Written By: Josh Miller

VERSE 1: Well I don't know why you gave me that page in your life. Well I don't know why you gave me that page in your life.
VERSE 2: Well I don't know why you gave me the time of day. Well I don't know why you gave me the time of day.
CHORUS: But the radio's a blastin' in my ears; and I'd like to tell you and I'd like to sell you now. But the radio's a blastin' I can't hear; what you've got to say to me now.

Took A Blow

Written By: Josh Miller

VERSE 1: And I could die tonight content the way I am. And I could try to fight but I don't give a damn because.
VERSE 2: And I could wake up anytime but I don't think I should. And I could make up any lie but I know that ain't good.
CHORUS: I took a blow to my head to lay down and die. I took a blow to my head I'm wired. I took a blow to my head to lay down and die. I took a blow to my head I'm wired.
