Biography of Richard R.W.K. Position: lead vocalist, lyricist & composer Instrumentation: guitar, piano and synthesizers Influences: Well, I listen to everything, probably so many groups and styles that the list is to long to write. But Ill say this; whatever music I can relate tois generally what I like. To addif it can make me dance, it's probably dam good! I've been playing and writing music since I was 9yrs old, going from school to school, state to statelearning as I move. My parents got divorced around that time. Music and my brothers kept me from being lonely. If you listen to our songs you might know by now that the road and the relocations of residents...was heartbreaking enough. That's why I write moody! I don't really know where home isbut music gives some kind of direction to follow! If you're listening, keep your ears to the ground Biography of Anthony R.W.K. Position: bass guitar, synthesizers, arranger Instrumentation: guitar, piano, bass and synthesizers Heres a of my life in the music business. Around the time I became 5yrs old my dad, pretty much, made me learn to play the guitar, even though I really wanted to play the drums. Around the time I turned 13, I joined my first heavy metal band, playing guitar, with Richard, which lasted for a while. Soon after, I formed another band called, Hypnotic Kick. HK, as some know itwas formed with some of my other friends form the block. We put out three independent albums on a small label called, Sike Records. HK lasted about 10yrsthe struggle! Still struggling, I reunited with Richard later on in his new project call, Running with Karma. This time around, I wanted to write and play, like the bass, something different. It took me a while to realize that music is bigger-than-life. Biography of Elmy R.W.K. Position: lead/rhythm guitar, synthesizers Instrumentation: guitar and synthesizers Well this is my bio. I've been around music my entire life. My fathers side of the family are all artistsmainly musicians. It's funnybecause being around it my entire life; it took me 22yrs to finally give my musical talent a shot. With a little inspiration from the heaviest heartbreak I've ever experienced, thus far, my musical journey began. I started playing guitar, alone, trying to figure it outwhile being drawn to the local and international music scene. As I grew musically, so did my connections with fellow local musicians. I established a brotherly friendship with our current bass player, Anthony, with no intentions of playing together. We crossed paths on musical project called, Running with Karma. Instantly, we were both drawn to it. One thing lead to another and by the time we knew it, we were embarking as a unified unit. While creating a distinct and solid sound, Running with Karma became our primary focus, or should I say, my primary focus. Biography of Damien R.W.K. Position: drums, screams Instrumentation: drums and percussion My name is Damien. I play drums. As in playing seriously now, for about four years. I say I've been playing 'seriously' for four years because that's when I've realized what it means to play. I never took lessons, I wasn't trained, I just play. This isn't meant to make me seem better than anyone else because I'm not. There are a ton of talented musicians and bands that I feel deserve more recognition for what they do. Anyhow, I was asked to write a bio and I want to use this platform to say what I want. Music has changed me permenantly. I can't not play, I've tried and it doesn't work. These are more than just songs, chords, melodies, and words. They grab hold and drive me in a way I could never put into words. I lose my mind when I play, everything goes away, there isn't a crowd, no lights, nothing but my three brothers and I and the sounds we create...Here there is no pain, no fear, no hate or unreasoning. There is only some kind of profound love that no one can ever touch. It will always be there. It will never turn it's back, never let me down, never leave, it's home to me. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.
