John Heintz is not well known at all. In fact I could not find any back round information on him. He makes some beautiful music and here are a couple songs that by him that I love! They are both from the album, ”The Question behind the Question”. The first song is ” The sound of my Voice ” the second is ” Defending Our Lives”. This whole album is very very good and i would recommend you check the whole thing out. You won’t be disappointed! If you can find anymore information on Jon Heintz, please contact me through either my facebook page, or my contact email on this site!
The Naked and Famous is an indie rock band that formed in 2008 in Auckland, New Zealand. In the first year, Thom Powers and Alisa Xayalith recorded two EPs, with fellow student from MAINZ music college, Aaron Short. The EPs were released on an independent label that year shortly before the band began playing live with Jordan Clark on drums and Ben Knapp on bass. Aaron Short wasn’t a preforming member of ‘’The Naked and Famous’’ until after the release of the single “All of This” in 2009. Also in 2009, Jesse Wood replaced Jordan Clark on the drums as a permanent member and Ben Knapp was replaced by David beadles on the bass, also as a permanent member of the band. The band released their debut single “Young Blood” in 2010. “Young Blood was the first song by a New Zealand band to be number one on the charts.
In 2011, the group received six nominations at the New Zealand Music Awards for Album of the Year, Single of the Year, Best Group, Breakthrough Artist of the Year, Best Alternative Album and the People’s Choice Award. They were also nominated for the NZ On Air Best Music Video and won the MAINZ Best Engineer Award and the MAINZ Best Producer Award. The band just released their newest album “Passive me, Aggressive You”. It is available on itunes for download.

Coldplay is a british rock band that formed in 1996. In the early years, the band changed their name several times, first they were the ‘Pectoralz’ ( someone had a sense of humor 😉 ) and then shortly after Guy Barryman joined the band, they changed their name to ‘Starfish’. Before recording three EPs in 1998 they changed their name again, to Coldplay. But the bands popularity didn’t skyrocket until they released song ‘Yellow’ in 2000. Over the years Coldplay has become more and more popular, and has also won several music awards; six Brit Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards, and seven Grammy Awards from twenty nominations. Coldplay has just released their newest album Mylo Xyloto a couple months back anc are now touring. Be sure to catch one of their shows they’re going to be awesome.
