A Sound of Thunder delivers a unique and exciting blend of classic heavy metal, progressive, and rock. The young upstarts from Washington, DC pay no heed to trends, focusing on quality song-writing with memorable melodies and riffs that stand the test of time. With first class musicianship all around, the band's not-so-secret weapon is vocalist Nina Osegueda. Standing only 5' 2", the diminutive singer packs the vocal wallop of someone twice her size. Described as a "heavy metal Swiss army knife", Osegueda moves effortlessly from delicate whisper to overwhelming power, with the occasional banshee wail thrown in for good measure!
A Sound of Thunder was formed in 2008 by guitarist Josh Schwartz and drummer Chris Haren. After over a year of numerous line-up changes and false starts, in late 2009 they were joined by vocalist Nina Osegueda, who had grown restless in her previous band and was in search of broader musical horizons. The chemistry between Schwartz, Haren and Osegueda was instant, and the band wasted no time recording their self-titled debut EP in late 2009, and follow up single benefitting the West Memphis Three in early 2010.

Tempt brings musicianship, style, performance, and an intense rock sound to a new generation.
Tempt is an explosive new band built on a love for melodic rock. The band is fronted by two 19 year olds on vocals and guitar has taken the heritage of the Sunset Strip, New Jersey and the streets of their hometown New York City and made it their own to take rock into the 21st century.

As a child, I was always told that I was an "old soul." In many instances, I found it hard to relate to my peers because of my intuitive abilities. At five or six, it was "normal" for children my age to talk about seeing fairies, to have "imaginary" friends and to be afraid of the dark because of monsters or ghosts (that I knew were communicating with me.) I enjoyed more creative pursuits like playing the piano, singing, painting and day-dreaming to satisfy the need to use my intuition. (My inner child still allows me to enjoy these things today too!) In my teens, I began to integrate the more eccentric parts of myself and allowed my abilities to shine through in a solely "entertainment" type of way. It worked for the time-being.
I continuously found myself seeking more from the Universe than dogmatic religion and traditional academia were providing me. Basically, I wanted to know about the ultimate human potential in a multitude of different ways. I wanted to answer questions about consciousness, the purpose of life (for myself and others), what it is like after death and what is ACTUALLY out there in the Universe and on this Earth. (And that is in no specific order. haha) My mediumship and galactic channeling came on board in divine timing. When I opened myself up to the Universe and surrendered my current paradigm, I was able to free my mind and allow sacred information to flow through me. The support of my family, my Transpersonal Psychology education and study of Earth and galactic-based magic techniques, cosmic symbology, Reiki healing and musicianship led me to creating a unique healing, channeling and teaching practice.
