Here's an "I take myself too serious" bio:
TV Stole My Name, for the lack of a better term, is the brain child of Joshua Thornberry, just a kid who loves making music. He started playing bass at the age of 12 and soon started writing songs and playing in bands. Towards the end of his high school career he started writing and recording demos of the songs that would be on his first album as TV Stole My Name. After high school he attended the Los Angeles Recording School and learned the art of recording and was on route to becoming a recording engineer. He began work at a big time recording studio as a runner and decided that if he could make this happen then anything was possible. While working at the recording studio he recorded his first album Read Between the Letters. Soon after he began sending out emails about booking shows and booked the first show for TV Stole My Name at the world famous Whisky A Go Go. Because he couldn't possibly recreate all that he had recorded on stage alone he recruited his cousin Magic Olmos to play the drums, whom he had been playing music with for a long, long time. After two shows as a duo Christopher Sakacs joined in to play bass and the rest...well it is what it is.
