PISSING OFF THE NEIGHBORS SINCE 1946

Klipsch loves live music. We always have. We sold our souls to rock and roll when your grandaddy was a young whippersnapper. To this very day, our speakers and headphones are designed to inject live music excitement and passion directly into your ear holes. We are the Keepers of the Sound™.

FUTURE LEGENDS

In that spirit, we conducted a national talent search , The Future Legends Contest, and these three bands came out on top. Their music rocks, and deserves the support of the entire Klipsch Nation. Check out their wildly varying styles and their superb tunes. Please let them know you appreciate their efforts to keep original music alive by becoming a fan, buying their music and spreading the word.

Thanks to all the bands that entered. It was truly a tough choice to narrow it down to just three. There's mighty fine music happening all over the place, and that makes our horn-loaded hearts happy.

THE WINNERS

CYBERSMITH

Members:
Nick Gough

From:
Newbury Park, California

Formed:
September 2009

Description:
Cybersmith's music can simply be described as the electronic soundtrack to his imagination. It pays no particular regard to the conventional ideas of modern music, as it focuses more on trying to acoustically create feelings and impressions surrounding things that often have never been experienced by humans... after all, it is really just an evolving soundtrack to wild ideas.

Inspiration:
The Crystal Method, the Chemical Brothers, Nine Inch Nails, Basshunter, and an array of classical composers.
