From then on, Shinozaki took his beatboxing all over the world, performing in countless countries, and was even awarded the Grand Beatbox Battle Championship title in Basel, Switzerland. Shinozaki is currently ranked amongst the top 8 beatboxers in the world, and is now a co-writer for The Beatbox House.
Tashawn Taylor is a Boston-based rapper. (Full bio coming)
First Frost, a Boston-based indie rock four-piece, debuted in April of 2015 under the name Foliage. Drawing on elements of shoegaze and experimental rock, the band peppers noise and oddity into songs while maintaining an accessible sound.
The band was conceived when compositional team Morgan Browne and Lauren Koppelman sought out like-minded musicians following an intense, week-long writing session in the both valiant and foolish hopes to complete an album before their birthdays.
But First Frost became a reality after Morgan and Lauren met drummer Chris Mendoza and bass player Michael Kish. The duo brought energy, texture and melody to the rhythm section, arguably the defining element of their sound.
