--- Flobots ---
When a pair of intelligent, visionary emcees joins forces with a battle-hardened, groove-fusing rhythm section, and a classically trained violist the result is a sound that explores and expands the frontiers of live hip-hop. Progressive in both style and message, the bands ability to drop from symphonic rock-infused crescendos into stripped-down string-laden breakbeats has earned Flobots a reputation for both originality and authenticity.

Armed with musicianship, intelligence, and an ingrained sense of rebellion, Flobots are looking to engage a new musical culture, one mind at a time.

If you are thinking, you are winning.

-- Ned Evett --
"The Blues just got interesting" - No Depression

Born in Nashville Tennessee, the son of an English professor and an opera singer, Ned Evett started playing ukelele at age 11, graduating to his first guitar at 15. At 16, Ned got his first classical guitar and gave his first professional performance as a guitarist.

In 1984, Ned witnessed King Crimson Sleepless Live in Japan on MTV, and was mesmerized by the fretless guitar wielded by Adrian Belew; this chance viewing would come full circle years later.

Intent upon developing a distinct style and sound on electric guitar, Ned benefited from Fulltone custom effects founder Mike Fuller working at a local guitar shop. He introduced Ned to the basic concepts of electric guitar tone, loaning him pedals and guitars to experiment with.
Ned won a college scholarship to study classical guitar, but a Michael Hedges performance in 1986 changed the course of his life; he dropped out of college to pursue songwriting and electric guitar full time. He spent the next five years traveling across the US playing six nights a week with numerous bands.

The master of the fretless glass-necked guitar -USA Today

New years eve 1990, Ned had had enough of cover bands. He smashed his strat onstage and built his first fretless guitar from the neck which survived intact. He appeared with his fretless acoustic in the May 1993 issue of Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine, then on record with Warner Brothers recording artists Built To Spill in 1994.

Relocating to San Francisco California in 1995 resulted in Ned joining the band Yellow Wood Junction, co-founded by Pandora CSO Tim Westergren, who encouraged Ned to continue growing as a producer and writer. He also met guitarist Joe Satriani. Neds Americana writing style began to emerge during this period, working with bay area pedal steel ace David Phillips ( Tom Waits ).

Frequent visits to the Rodin collection at the Legion of Honor Museum, just down the street from his San Francisco apartment, led to a secondary interest in sculpting.

Prior to his first European tour in 1997 backing Austin Singer/Songwriter Dirk Hamilton, he switched to a glass fingerboard; in part to keep from wearing out numerous ebony fingerboards. Ned has used glass fingerboards ever since, prompting the moniker the glass guitarist.
A project with the band Deluxe 71 prompted a move to Los Angeles California in 1998, bringing Ned into contact with producer Marvin Etzionne and singer Maria McKee. Living and recording in a bungalow owned by actor Bruce Willis, Ned incorporated the glass fretless guitar into both Americana and modern rock styles.

Moving to Boise, ID, in the fall of 2000 to raise a family and explore life off the road, Ned settled into producing a series of albums for indie label Empty Beach. Supporting each release with a limited tour, Ned continued releasing songs featuring elements of both Americana and Modern Rock.
Ned has drawn a catalogue of critical acclaim from such major national publications as USA Today, writing, Ned Evett is the perfectly sane, and vastly entertaining master of the fretless glass-necked guitar.

Ned made waves in 2000 with the groundbreaking release, An Introduction to Fretless Guitar. That album, along with successful albums Circus Liquor (2003), iStole (2004), Middle of the Middle (2007), and Afraid4U (2010) led to his widespread success in Europe, while also kick-starting the beginning of a loyal fan following in the U.S.

His touring history includes concerts performed in the United States, Canada, England, Ireland, Mexico, and Australia as well as most of the countries in western Europe.

In 2003, Ned entered and won the North American Rock Guitar Competition. In 2004 PBS Television broadcast the documentary Driven To Play , a film about the event which aired in all US states and parts of Canada.

Following the films premier, Ned began a series of tours with artists such as Jonny Lang, Eric Johnson, and George Thorogood. From October 2010 through January 2011, Ned embarked on a world tour with Grammy nominated artist Joe Satriani who says:
Ned Evett is a monster player/writer/performer. Ive had him on tour as a solo act, as well as with his different band lineups, and he always puts on a great performance. He has a good time with the audience, as he uses his unique personality to guide them through his music and his one-of-a-kind guitar style.

Neds current sixth solo album, Treehouse is a 14 song diary of love, loss, redemption, and the future told in Neds mesmerizing voice, accompanied by Neds trademark fretless mirrored glass and steel resonator, the Globro and his glass-necked electrics. The album, produced by legendary musician Adrian Belew, was released on January 3, 2012.

The highly personal material on the album evolved from a too common event in American life, job loss and economic displacement. The cycle of events described on Treehouse is not an interpretation of hard times projected by a rich entertainer or writer, but of first hand experience losing it all.

Hope abounds though, and by the end of the album Ned picks up the pieces and goes on to the next exciting phase of life.

--- Eric May ---
Growing up around music was an essential part to who Eric May is now. His mother, Maureen, and father, Robert, met in a rock band in the late 60s. After leaving the group, his mother became a music teacher, focusing on vocal and piano. His father became a DJ at a radio station and eventually became a General Manager. After school, Eric would help himself at the radio station to all the music that was available, listening to the likes of The Beatles, Credence Clearwater Revival, and James Brown.

Eric participated in music throughout school, involved in choir, band and orchestra. He started to play the Trumpet in middle school and it was obvious he had a knack for it. His mother was his teacher in 8th grade band so he had to work extra hard to impress the teacher! He competed in many competitions and won numerous awards for his playing, even received a scholarship to New Mexico State University.

Eric started playing small solo acoustic shows and decided it was time to form his own band. After only two rehearsals in the living room, The Center Lane Band went to Casper, WY for Battle of the Bands and won! The bookings started coming in and before they knew it, the band had a steady workload, playing country and rock music all over Wyoming and South Dakota.
