SPENCER OWEN TIMESHARE is the unclassifiable six-piece outfit presenting the music of Spencer Owen, an American rock musician. Afraid not of stylistic eclecticism -- nor of the presence of his own voice -- Owen's repertoire is so far an attempt to meld tuneful headiness and cliche-minimal lyrics with stately fervor and falsetto-driven hubris. Spencer Owen Timeshare is currently putting the finishing touches on their debut album. The band is tight, and their live shows are surprising, fulfilling, and not, in any respect, to be missed.

QUALIA is the auditory outfit spearheaded by Alison Niedbalski. 
Her devotion to music became apparent early on, spending hours spinning records, playing classical piano, & arguing with other children who "loved" the Beatles but had never heard of Harry Nilsson. After an affair with academia, she moved West to teach Philosophy and found herself forming a Band.
