In 2011, the single \"Dancing On My Own\" was nominated at Grammy Awards for the category Best Dance Recording. She is the owner of Konichiwa Records, which release only her music, including Robyn and Body Talk. Robyn's parents are actors, and she herself was involved in acting at the age of 9, with an extra role in Kronbruden at the Swedish theatre Dramaten. In 1991, at the age of 12, Robyn recorded the theme song named \"Du kan alltid bli nummer ett\" (\"You can always be number one\") for the Swedish television show Lilla Sportspegeln. In the same year she performed this song on television show S\u00f6ndags\u00f6ppet. Robyn was rediscovered by Swedish pop singer Meja in the early 90s. Meja and her band Legacy of Sound visited Robyn's school and were involved with a musical workshop.Following the completion of her middle school education, Robyn signed to Ricochet Records Sweden, a subsidiary of BMG. She collaborated with producers Max Martin and Denniz Pop. Writing duties were assisted by Ulf Lindstrom and Johan Ekhe, who also helped to produce the album, and they stayed on board with Robyn until 2003.Robyn started her career in the pop music industry at the age of 16. She signed a record deal with RCA Records in 1994 to release her debut single \"You've Got That Somethin'\" in Sweden, followed by her breakthrough single \"Do You Really Want Me (Show Respect)\". In October 1996 she released her debut album Robyn Is Here. Robyn's US breakthrough came in 1997, when the dance-pop singles \"Show Me Love\" and \"Do You Know (What It Takes)\" reached the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. Her second album My Truth was released in May 1999 in Sweden, with subsequent releases elsewhere in Europe.

In addition, she studied classical drama at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. She stated in a post on her blog on social website, MySpace that she grew up flying between London and Florida, where she had relatives, resulting in a mixed American and English accent.Kills made her acting debut at age 9 in 1995 in New Voices. She had a regular role as Sima on the TV sitcom \"All About Me\" and also played Amy Franks in the BBC's long-running radio drama \"The Archers\". She began writing songs at 14, some of which were featured in films and television shows, including \"Bring It On 4\", \"Sleepover\", \"Just My Luck\", and \"Entourage\". After finishing with \"The Archers\" in 2003, Kills began pursuing a music career and attributes her musical breakthrough to winning a Radio 1 MC Battle in Leeds under the name \"Candy Rapper\" in 2003. She signed to the UK record company \"Adventures in Music\" and released her first single Don't Play Nice under the name Verbalicious in February 2005. Kills' told W that her childhood nickname from her mother was \"Verbal\" because she talked and sang a lot. She adopted the name and variations of it as her stage name at some points during her career.While writing music for films, Kills posted her self-produced and written demo extended play, \"Womannequin\" on music social website MySpace in 2007 that attracted the attention of blogger Perez Hilton in 2008, her song received 2 million plays on the website and Kills reached the top of the unsigned artists chart.

Pokora and met underground director Guillaume Doubet, who would go on to direct many of her videos, in Paris.Kills explained in an interview that she adopted the stage name Natalia Kills at the behest of her record company, which found \"Natalia Cappuccini\" hard to pronounce. She had taken on her grandmother's family name a few years prior.

Kills released her debut album \"Perfectionist\" in April 2011 in Germany following a top ten placing by the first single, \"Mirrors\". The album was described as a concept album by Kills, proving that perfection is attainable. It features production by Jeff Bhasker and Fernando Garibay, who had worked with Lady Gaga. The album was accompanied by four singles, Mirrors, Wonderland, Free and Kill My Boyfriend. The first three singles were minor hits in some European countries but failed to chart in the US or UK.

(Arjan Writes) It's a scorcher bound to make your dance-infused taste buds sizzle. The music swarms with outside-of-the-box tendencies, jam-packed full of life, energy and unusual yet fantastic sounds. (Clixie)Recording original, high-quality songs is one thing, but the ability to perform them live with passion, energy and a great, unique sound is a completely different beast. Capital Cities have both down to a science. (The Chuckness) They controlled the audience with addictive beats that caused strangers to dance with each other. Everyone sang along throughout the night regardless if they were first-time listeners. (Campus Circle)In 2008, Ryan Merchant found Sebu Simonian on craigslist in his search for a collaborator. The two formed a composing team, and in 2010, they began producing material for Capital Cities. The band released their debut EP last summer and saw their lead single 'Safe and Sound' climb to #2 on Hype Machine and hit #1 on CMJ's A&R unsigned spin chart.Capital Cities have played sold-out shows in their hometowns of Los Angeles and San Francisco and embarked on a successful mini tour of the East Coast and Canada last October. In November, after reaching #1 on South American radio, the band flew to Lima, Per\u00fa to play in front of 1000 fans. They just headlined the W Hotel New Year's Eve party in San Francisco and are now back in L.A. as 987fm's January Resident Artist. Look for them in Austin, Texas at this year's SXSW.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/8602_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"150,000 - 300,000"}

{"key":"7112","name":"Miami Horror","bio":"Miami Horror are an Australian indie-electronic band from Melbourne, Australia (with the name referring to producer, Benjamin Plant, and to the four-piece live incarnation). Beginning in 2007 under the moniker Miami Horror, Plant started with a series of remixes. The debut release came in 2008 with a five-track EP, Bravado, on Virgin Records. The live show has Plant augmented by Josh Moriarty (Peacocks, ex-Young & Restless) (guitars), DJ\/producer Aaron Shanahan (drums), and Daniel Whitechurch (bass, keyboards, and guitars).After years in the making here at last is Illumination, the fully realised debut album from Melbourne's favourite psychedelic indie-electronic adventurers Miami Horror. With Illumination, Miami Horror has delivered on two years of teeth-cutting live shows and an ever escalating wave of buzz that\u2019s made the group bonafide blog darlings the world over. But what\u2019s most amazing about the grand arrival of Illumination is that the roots of the record stretch back countless moons to when Miami Horror began as just one synthesizer-obsessed producer in 2007 huddled over a laptop in a bedroom-come-studio and the album itself just a spark waiting to be lit.The afore mentioned synth tragic was, and let\u2019s face it still is, electronic young gun Ben Plant, who kick started Miami Horror out of a love of Roland keyboards and French house, landing himself on Pitchfork\u2019s hot-list overnight and copping a barrage of high profile remix requests from the likes of Datarock, PNAU and The Presets.Yet it was while Ben was punching out 2008\u2019s epochal Bravado EP that Miami Horror took off in a completely new and different direction. Characteristically wanting to flex his creative muscle and avoid the limitations of being stereotyped as simply a dance or electro act, Ben rewired Miami Horror\u2019s genetic makeup, deputising the talents of Josh Moriarty, Aaron Shanahan and Daniel Whitechurch to form a new live band persona of Miami Horror, a whole new beast immeasurably more exciting than before.\u201cIt started out that I didn\u2019t want to have any guitar on the album besides a little funk guitar or disco bass,\u201d Ben grins while explaining the turning point for Miami Horror\u2019s evolution. \u201cBut then Josh came in and started playing all these other parts that sounded amazing. Paired with what I was working on, nobody was doing anything like it, so I knew we had to turn those sounds into a live thing and just go wild.\u201dIt worked. Since the switch, Miami Horror has launched into dizzying new stratospheres, their well-polished chops as a group making for some unmissable sets at Australia\u2019s biggest festivals, and that\u2019s not to mention some A-list support slot call ups for everyone from Phoenix, Friendly Fires and La Roux to a hand-picked hook up from Lily Allen. www.miamihorror.com","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/7112_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"10,000 - 30,000"}
