Billy Harvey has been playing his own brand of Post Modern Pop working not only as a songwriter but also as a producer (Charlie Mars, Bob Schneider, Slaid Cleaves, and Steve Poltz are among his credits). A prolific writer, he has been the recipient of the International Songwriters Award for Best Rock Song “Frozen Through,” and broke into the Top 100 on the CMJ Charts with his 2007 release ‘Bearsick.’ The caffeine-addled do-it-yourselfer has also been quietly directing, animating, and editing the accompanying music videos to his records.
In February of last year Billy shot and directed a documentary film entitled “EVERYWHERE NOW." Filmed entirely on his laptop camera, Harvey intimately chronicled a 7000 plus mile tour in a car powered by waste vegetable oil. From crossing the continental divide on a sheet of ice to digging through oil dumpsters in the freezing cold, what followed was a near epic journey of endurance and self-discovery that was both beautiful and at times harrowing.
Billy's website has won several media and internet awards including the Interactive Design Award at South By Southwest and the Flash Forward award in NYC. Please visit it at www.billyharvey.com.

Introducing Jeff Palmiotti...
A tenured bartender, model and lifelong musician Jeff performs regularly with The Citizens Band and as front-man for the equally raucous Jeff Palmiotti & the Hey Rube.
In March '10, Jeff was voted “New York City's Hottest Bartender” by Playgirl Magazine. Jeff is also starting his own fitness food line, PhysEAT: Food to Feed Your Physique. He aspires to become a mixed martial artist as soon as they stop hitting in the face or produce a "two-hand touch" version of the ancient art.
Although this is his film debut, Jeff has appeared on the Jerry Springer Show, and implies that perhaps not all of it was un-acted.
Ms. Leonora Moore studied Astrophysics at the University of Oxford and studied acting in Los Angeles, California. “Leo” has performed in various European and Asian Commercials and Film productions over the past few years, including the Features “Sparrow” and “Birthday Transit.”
