The Honest Johns all grew up in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England, but they never met until they all went to the same High School. Exams over, they toured and recorded extensively yet, unbelievably, released nothing save for an EP in 1986 called Tell Me About Your Childhood. Even now, demand remains high for this rare vinyl release featuring the classic Grandfather Of Gold. The band split in the early 90s leaving the vast majority of their recordings unheard. That, could easily have been that.

Stephen Kellogg (born November 28, 1976, in Westchester, Pennsylvania) is an American singer-songwriter. He founded his band Stephen Kellogg & The Sixers in 2003. They went on hiatus in Autumn 2012 and in December 2012 Kellogg began working on a solo record, his first solo release since 2002. It's said that the musical urge in Kellogg started with a mixture of his dad's records (Cat Stevens/Jim Croce) and his sister's (Mötley Crüe/Bon Jovi). The songwriting of the former and the showmanship of the latter was the beginning of the musical attitude that pervades Kellogg's work today.

Having been compared musically to the highly energetic energy of No Doubt meets the rockier Evanescence with a pinch of Bjork in the vocals, it is no wonder Coconi has captured large audiences whilst performing alongside the likes of Natasha Bedingfield, PM Dawn and the legendary James Taylor Quartet, wowing audiences to her highly seductive tunes bursting with power. Coconi puts her ability to pen a catchy hook down to growing up listening to the crème de la crème of musical lyricists such as Alanis Morissette, Madonna and Sheryl Crow.
