Pavon9ne (pav•o•nine) meaning “Peacock like” is a reference to the characteristics that are possessed by this band. Their music is influenced by many genres but is firmly seated in the Indie Realm. Wayne Tweed bass player for Smokey Robinson has described them as “as a refreshing new sound” The E.P. entitled “The Shaming of the True” will be made available for a “Green” release on Itunes this fall. The single “Fly Blind” is due for Radio Release in June 2008. Originally from Redlands California, Pavon9ne formed in August of 2007 to write and record a single for Magic Johnson’s project at MCA Records. In May of 2008 they won the award for “Best in New Style” at The West Coast American Indian Awards. On April 1, 2008 they launched Apocyphilia Publishing through BMI.

West:

I have over twenty years of experience as a musician.I have played bass in several bands,laid guitar tracks as a studio musician and have sung back-up and lead vocals in more recent projects. In my early years, I have played in Metal, Rock,Goth,Industrial,Funk and Blues bands. These bands were the opening act for Artists such as The Surf Punks, Butthole Surfers, L.A. Guns, Bang Tango and Gene Loves Jezebel. I was signed with Statue Records and Steve Steadhams label, Ghost town Records. My experiences have culminated in most recent projects, Pavon9ne(Pronounced Pav-o-nine)and Hesid.I pull from several genres in my playing. In 2008 the song "Fly Blind" won the award for Best in New Style at The West Coast American Indian Music awards. In 2009 I won The top of class award for my song "Dregs" at The west Coast American Indian Awards. I hope to continue this forward momentum with prospective opportunities internationally.
