Probably best known for his years behind the drums of the powerfully imaginative and innovative Swept To See, Peter Vartan has been a musician and songwriter for nearly 20 years. Since his departure from Swept To See, he has been busy playing guitars on and off stage for NYC's own Hesta Prynn. Working with her and producer Chuck Brody has forged some interesting collaborations and his guitars can be heard on Hesta’s album “Can We Go Wrong?” as well as studio tracks that feature Clown from Slipknot, Tim Harrington of Les Savy Fav, and Dylan Rau from Bear Hands. He has perfomed live with Hesta Prynn in NYC and at the 2009 CMJ Festival and 2010 SXSW Festival as well. Most recently, he hooked up with the Sonata Contata group and played the 2010 CMJ with the indomitable Ellie Johndro in her new project Biker Daughter. His first official release "Negative Attidude!!!" was released on iTunes February 8th 2011 under the name Vartan.

A good article, an attractive story requires the author to have a good sense and a keen eye to have a deep insight into it. I am very impressed with your article. crossword puzzles

The topic of this post is fascinating. The slope game is challenging at first, but it is definitely worth the effort. However, once you begin playing, there is a lot to understand about this game. Please keep reading to learn more amazing details about this game!

I checked them again and could get none of them to play(not even when trying some of them from the stations where they were listed). Please pass it along whenever they "DO" play again though. Thanks. -M-

Hi everyone. The songs are not working on my page as you may have noticed. I've been working with IMP support to try and fix it. Re-uploading hasn't helped. Apparently they work when played on radio stations just not here. I hope I will have an update for you soon!

Whatever happened to "Hit Man"? And "Dodging Sharks" is number 32 on the Hard Alternative chart. Does that mean anything?

I really like this Hugh Hamilton and everything he has to say about your songs. lets be frank here for a moment. i am invisible is one amazing song, like no other. but I Want Pizza (right now)!!!

I think John Lennon would have enjoyed "I Am Invisible". Sounds like a pleasing blend of mayhem and melody to me. Keep on rockin', V-Freaq...
