    Love X Stereo

    World

    Love X Stereo is a Korean electro/alternative rock band comprising of Toby (guitar), Annie (vocal and synth), and Sol (bass). Plugging away since 1998, the team originally performed as part of the sk8 punk outfit known as Skrew Attack. Although Toby was the de facto leader, so many members came and went, the band barely triggered a blip on the media radar. However, when Annie jumped onboard in 2005 as the new vocalist, Skrew Attack skewed toward a different creative path and gelling with Gum-X drummer, Kim WoongKyoon, they unleashed their first (and last) album in 2008, Not Enough Translation.

    Despite tight instrumentals and catchy melodies, the record didnt quite garner much traction for commercial success. Shaken but not deterred, Skrew Attack proceeded to build considerable buzz in Seouls legendary live club district of Hongdae. But then in 2011, the drummer suddenly bolted from the band. With the trio now down to a duo, Toby and Annie struggled to figure a way to play live without a drummer. Determined to reboot, they decided to relaunch themselves by changing their band name to Love X Stereo. Ditching punk riffs for synth chords, the pair picked up bass guitarist Sol along the way and a new triple treat was formed. Thanks to their new name tag, a new look and new sound was born. 

     

    In 2012, Love X Stereo jolted music critics inside and outside of Korea with their stunning debut EP, Off the Grid, and after stellar opening performances for the American dream pop band, Asobi Seksu, and European disco duo, The KDMS, the band skyrocketed to take center stage alongside international headliners at the Jisan Rock Festival and Korean indie icons at the Zandari Festival.

  • Big Phony

    Big Phony

    World

    Big Phony delivers honest lyrics and natural talent. There’s a fragile but controlled quality in his voice, which he attributes to thin apartment walls and easily disgruntled neighbors. Fans of Elliott Smith, Bright Eyes, and Death Cab For Cutie will instinctively gravitate towards Big Phony’s sound.

    Bobby Choy (Big Phony) is a singer/songwriter born and raised in New York City. At the age of 14 Bobby’s family relocated to Los Angeles, leaving him in New York City so he could attend the legendary School of Performing Arts and Music and Art, which has produced a long list of talent including Al Pacino, Adrian Brody, and Bela Fleck. Living alone at such an early age, Big Phony devoted his time to writing in his New York City apartment.

    With strong religious conviction, Big Phony left for Boston to attend a Christian college to study to be a pastor. He quickly realized that this was not the path for him and returned his focus to his music. After college, he moved to Los Angeles to be closer with his family. It was in Los Angeles where Big Phony began his pursuit to be a singer-songwriter. He quickly built a devout fan base with his songs and performances. In early 2006 he returned to New York to build that same kind of following and began to split his time between both cities crashing on couches and aerobeds.

    In 2011 Big Phony made the decision to relocate to the country his parents originally hailed from - South Korea. He currently resides in Seoul, where he continues his journey and commitment to be an artist.
