Planet B is song writer, lead singer, Sason Bishope Parry & producer, rapper, Shaun Malice Bivens, both raised in the SF Bay Area and friends since their teens. They both grew up listening to different styles of music and came together in 1999 when Planet B was immediately formed bringing together both of their unique styles and life experiences. The “B” comes from balance and defines the fusion of hard and soft melodies, music & lyrics. Every song is a intergalactic journey and new experience in the lives of Planet B. “We grew up listening to so many different styles of music that we wanted to have that show through in our musical creations. We don’t sugarcoat the realities, because sometimes the Planet is a big party and other times its not the happiest place. I'm Persian, born in Tehran and came to Berkeley, Cali at an early age and have had the opportunity to see and experience many cultures and musical styles. Lyrics are just as important as the music and probably more important- because that’s where you understand the message and the story. Planet B has very profound messages and there are many meanings if you listen close,” says Sason.

Both members are exact alter egos and feed upon each others creativity and vibes like ying and yang. “We didn’t want to be pigeon holed into any one particular music genre, because we like so many different styles of music, that we wanted to be able to take each song in a different direction, yet still have it be Planet B’s own sound.” Says, Shaun.

Planet B’s songs are extremely visual and many are being pitched for soundtracks to movies. They have finished up the final touches to their new album, entitled “Twist Your Fate”, which they are shooting to put out sometime in '09. They have just released their debut EP Cocaine Cowboys & the controversial video single (inpsired by the Cocaine Cowboys Documentary) is turning heads! PB also produced, performed and shot their video, The End Of The World" which will debut in Fall of 2009. The duo will also be releasing a live video shot in Miami at the Ultra Music Festival, sometime in April 2009. Planet B's new website: www.planetbmusic.com will be launching soon! (still under construction, but soon will have information about upcoming musical releases, shows, sample videos, MP3’s and so much more)!
