Col*li*sion (k -l zh n) n. 1. The act or process of colliding; a crash or conflict. 2. Physics. A brief dynamic event consisting of the close approach of two or more particles, such as atoms, resulting in an abrupt change of momentum or exchange of energy. Probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the word Collision is a horrible crash or accident. But the band Collision's vision is definitely not accidental; it's the Collision of musicians exchanging their different musical backgrounds and culture. Vocalist Sash Kuzma perfected his impressive singing skills by studying opera and jazz and by touring with various bands in Europe. But he grew up listening to good old American rock bands like Skid Row, Aerosmith, and G'n'R! Coming to LA, he collided with keyboardist, Sven Martin. Sven grew up a classically trained pianist in Germany, but influences like Nena, U2, and BT set him on a course just right for Collision. Lately, he's been buffing his skills as musical director for Russian 'lesbian' act, t.A.T.u., as keyboardist for alternagirl, Liz Phair, and as producer, writer, and remixer for various Rock, Pop,Dance and Electronica artists around his tight home studio in LA. On tour recently, Sven collided with Bryce Martin, who was playing guitar for opening act, Katy Rose. Bryce is a native Californian with the baddest hairdo on the planet, and he likes it classic: Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, and Jeff Beck. Additionally, Bryce toured extensively with Damone before joining Collision. Together, these three eclectic players heard the big bashing of drummer Ken Mundy, and knew he was set to collide. Ken's musical past includes drumming for The Gulf Coast Symphony and Atomic Boy. The result of such a Collision is a unique mix of rock, alternative, pop and electronica, with strong melodies and tasteful, unrelenting hooks. And this is one smash that's ready to go - they just self-produced their debut EP, which they released along with a VIDEO for their hit song 'Touching Me'. And they've already received raves in music magazines and TV & radio airplay. When you think of Collision, think basic Depeche Mode and Duran Duran swirled up with new chemistry like The Killers and Linkin Park. Put it all in the test tube now, and watch it explode!
