Jet Black Kiss
Jet Black Kiss is seasoned producer/engineer and principle songwriter, Robert S. Liam (aka 'Simon'). After completing film studies in San Francisco, Simon relocated to Los Angeles in 2003 to further his sound design career and build his music production business. In 2005 Jet Black Kiss was born from Simon's solo work in his personal music production and mastering studio. After a period of writing, producing, and performing, JBK debuted Star Rock Lights in 2007, which gained notoriety for it's acclaimed single, 'She's An Alien," and spawned a substantial following online, accumulating a Myspace friend-count of nearly 100,000 and well over a million MP3 plays. Subsequently, at his Hollywood headquarters Simon embarked on a two-year production of the self-titled, follow-up, set for release on December 9, 2009. Harder-hitting and faster-paced than previous material, Jet Black Kiss brings authentic metal roots to full fruition. On the escalating 'Car Crash' (to be featured on Rock Band®), charged 'Don't Fade Away On Me," and ominous 'We All Must Come Together,' Simon showcases his signature menacing vocal timbre and pushes the tempo to urgency. Other track highlights, including a fervent "The Social Regime," volatile "Illusions," and free-wheeling "Psycho Baby," layer instrumental distortions into a rousing release that will appeal to any rock purist.
