Entertainment entities Oz City and Symbiotic Nation unite to present Eric Knight, Hopkinson, Ignacio Val and Steve Cooke at the Viper Room in West Hollywood September 8 for international event City Of Nations.


Los Angeles, August 23, 2010 – Entertainment organizations Oz City and Symbiotic Nation have joined forces to present the international event City Of Nations featuring four artists whose musical styles embody what’s current in the world of modern music: Eric Knight (USA), Hopkinson (Australia), Ignacio Val (Bolivia) and Steve Cooke (United Kingdom) will perform live on Wednesday September 8 at the world famous Viper Room (8852 W. Sunset Blvd. West Hollywood, CA 90069) in West Hollywood. The show is $7, and members of the public 21 years and older are encouraged to attend.

City Of Nations’ showcases the best international and emerging artists in Los Angeles and brings the global entertainment industry together under one roof. Global partners CrowdWorkz & Persistent Management are proud supporters of this event, as well as the world famous Viper Room.

Eric Knight has taken the contemporary appropriate “do-it-yourself” attitude to a whole new level. Opening for acts including KISS, Dave Matthews Band, Aerosmith and Kid Rock, Knight has worked tirelessly to introduce his original music to the masses. In December 2008, he walked away with Outstanding Male Solo Artist bragging rights at the Rockies Awards in Hollywood. Dressed to kill in a sharp suit and tie, he offers a decidedly unbridled take on rock that remains tastefully aware of rock and roll’s pioneers but determined to redefine it even as he picks up the torch. Knight is currently working on his third album, Delusions of Grandeur, slated for release later this year.

Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, Hopkinson spent many years crossing the Pacific Ocean between Australia and America, suitcase in hand, writing and performing his music, before eventually relocating to Los Angeles in 2006. "I came to America not really knowing who I was, but in time I began to find all the missing pieces, says Hopkinson. “Strangers To Ourselves is a story of self discovery that hopefully many people will relate to." Hopkinson's influences are worlds apart. Classically trained from the age of nine, he started a grunge/rock band in high school, eventually finding his voice in the modern pop and rock sound, with much loved bands like U2, Pearl Jam, Live, Travis, Cold Play, Portishead, Train, and Crowded House. His album, Strangers To Ourselves, was co-written and produced with George Merrill, best known for writing Whitney Houston’s hit songs I Wanna Dance With Somebody and How Will I know.

Bolivian export Ignacio Val made his initial mark upon the public’s consciousness when he joined legendary Franco De Vita on tour throughout South America to duet on one of Franco's greatest hits, “Si La Ves.” Since then, Val has played throughout Southern California in key venues including The Whisky a Go Go, The Temple Bar, The Gig, The Rumba Room, B.B King’s, The Joint and The Good Hurt, among others. 2010 has already been an incredible year for the rising star, who has made multiple TV appearances on Univision’s Primera Edicion and Tu Estilo. Performing also with international superstars such as David Bisbal and Alejandra Guzman. Ignacio’s supercharged shows, songs and charisma combine to cultivate a Latin superstar-in-the-making.

Hollywood Music and Media award winner Steve Cooke is currently running the Hollywood circuit, bringing down the house at legendary venues. At the beginning of his career Steve moved to London where he formed the band Endever, supported by an all-star band “The Dolphins,” which included members of Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, Brand X and later guitar legend Alvin Lee of Ten Years After. He’s also played principle characters in UK hit musicals such as Broadway’s, Hair, Godspell, Jesus Christ Superstar and The Who’s Tommy. Over the last few years Steve has focused on his own music and songwriting. In 08 Steve rocked Carlos Santana’s after-party in Germany!


City Of Nations is an international organization who’s mission is to feature and unite emerging artists from various nations in order to create a global awareness of talent from around the world.

Duetos show taping with David Bisbal

Duetos TV Taping
Well after my day of doing interviews for the SNTV thing. I called in for another last minute gig for Universal artist David Bisbal. This was for a TV show taping of Latin TV show "Duetos". It's like an American Idol of sorts but with a twist. Basically paring up seemingly unknown talent with bigger stars was my take of it.

From L to R: Daniele, Forrest, Me, Ignacio & Isreal
It's always a good time doing one of these shows cause they are so effin chaotic it's fun to watch. David is always fun to play for. He's a good guy. He actually did a duet that night with Espinoza Paz which is another big artist in the Norteno music scene. Be on the lookout for it in the near future for the episode on the Estrella TV. Until next time folks.

Peace, Love & Happiness


SNTV Debut Live On Sunset....

Well, well, well ello maties it's me again. For the past several weeks now I have been going crazy from one event to another. It's been absolutely insane for me but in a good way. Nevertheless I'm extremely exhausted.

Vier (cameraman), Ian, Neha & Me
One of those crazy events or projects that I am involved in is a new entertainment network called SNTV or Symbiotic Nation Television. I'm co-hosting a new show that interviews various people from all around the various creative industries. Whether it be up incoming or already established people in the industry, SNTV's plan is to shed new light on the various creative talents that entertain millions of people everyday.  Their plans are to feature talent from the music industry, film & TV industry, comic book, gaming, pop culture you name it SNTV will be featuring it.

One of SNTV's other main objectives with the show is to hear and give advice to other talent that may be watching to inspire them to fully realize that their dreams are attainable.  We just finished shooting the first of several interviews for the debut webisodes on the Sunset Strip over at Live On Sunset in West Hollywood.

Interviewing Elyse from Elyse & The Aftermath
If the name sounds familiar LOS was originally the old location for the world famous Sunset Tower Records. A lot of great history and bands performed at that record store. We had a fabulous time while we were shooting. My partner in crime from down under Mr. Ian Hopkinson was co-host for the festivities.

Interviewing actor Kevin Bowers
We had some great guests for our debut show.  Singer songwriters Rochella Brown, Neha Kent, Elyse Haren (Elyse & The Aftermath) & Actor Kevin Bowers (True Blood, 24) rounded out the show. I'm really excited about this project and what it means. Stay tuned for more details for the premiere episodes out later this year. Until next time.
