BIO: 

I was born Lance King, that is to say, itís not a stage name. I love creating a vocal soundscape with amazingly compelling music. I forge a powerful mix of modern and classic tones and deeply felt lyrics with cutting edge production. My lyrics focus on societal ills, inner turmoil, balance of duality, personal power, the law of attraction, the celestial nature of self-reliance and self-awareness, age-old battles of right and wrong both within and without ourselves, and the subjective nature of "truth." Blending 70's Progressive Rock and Melodic Metal, I create an amalgam of my influences with which I grew up, spanning the best arena rock and early MTV stars with the deeply musical artists of today.

A few artists who have had a large lasting impact on my tastes in music include Heart, Queen, Genesis, Yes, ELP, Journey, Pink Floyd, RUSH, Whitesnake, TNT, Loverboy, April Wine, Boston, Kansas, Aerosmith, The Police, Queensryche, Pat Benatar, Ratt, Megadeth, LynchMob, Dream Theater, Symphony X, Opeth, Iron Maiden, Blind Guardian, Crimson Glory, and Vicious Rumors (with Carl).

Iím probably best-known for owning the US metal label Nightmare Records, and for singing with Danish/American PowerProg Metal band PYRAMAZE (2003-2007), British/American ProgPower band BALANCE OF POWER (1997-2003), and the American Hair/ProgPower Metal band GEMINI (1985-1993). With these successes, in part, Iíve created over 30 hours of music thus far and will continue to do so!

Besides being a singer/songwriter, I am also father of two, an entrepreneur, a spiritually-centered philosopher, and a music and energy healer! Iím a Martial Artist as well as a big fan of Sci-fi and Action Entertainment (a huge Star Wars fan in particular). I love being outside in the sun and being active with things like snowboarding, skiing, and riding motorcycles, fast cars, or fast boats to explore our beautiful world. I treasure learning about other times and cultures and I have a strange affinity for dragons and hand weapons of pretty much any era. I believe Iíve been here before... several times.
