Driven Madness is an independent music collaboration founded by Jason West Jones in October, 2003. The collaboration included band members from various areas of South Eastern Washington State. The South Eastern Washington State music scene was founded by such bands as Sunny Day Real Estate, and Loudermilk. Jones started playing the Southeastern WA music scene around 1999, with such bands as Tattooed Vampires, Shed 7, and WFO. They later went to play Ozzfest at the Gorge in George, WA Ozzfest 2000. WFO ended their career one year later, and Jason went on to write in independent music. This independent music would later take the form of a new independent alternative project that later became, Driven Madness on October 13, 2003.
Jason Jones had been playing drums, bass, guitar, and singing for over 15 years before founding Driven Madness. So it was only natural that he was able to write and produce the over 80 published songs, currently available online. Jason Jones is also owner and copyright chair holder of the Driven Madness networks. This includes over 50 Los Angles affiliates including, The VM Underground. The most popular of these affiliates being the Driven Madness Radio Show.
Driven Madness' music has been called thought provoking, and is a self proclaimed prodigy of Independent Music. Driven Madness prides itself to have no corporate ties, yet has the ability to network, and affiliate itself with as many credible associates and broadcasting companies without solicitation.
Today, all Driven Madness music is written and produced by Jason Jones. All music found here on this site, is free to you at no charge, and you may use it for any method you choose.

Kellee wants to change the world. She feels we all have the power to help positively affect the world by "being the change we wish to see", as Ghandi puts it. While this can bei ncredibly challenging given our human tendencies and emotions, she believes we are entering a new stage of evolution in human consciousness.
Kellee feels that all people have a special gift that will be a piece in the puzzle to transform the world. We are all made of the same energy and therefore are really all one. Music and art will usher in the peaceful revolution we need from our current fear stricken society.
We can enjoy this time/space reality while opening hearts and minds, and creating lasting change.
Russell Carlton Huiskamp—singer, songwriter, producer—spent the majority of his musical upbringing playing classical piano and training to be a composer. But, it wasn’t long until his interest in creating music grew to include film scoring, electronic music, musical theater, songwriting, producing, and eventually, pop.
Eclectic, energetic, and heartfelt, he strives to be both unique and approachable with his music, drawing on limitless inspiration from all types of composition, visual art, fashion, technology and foreign culture.
Self-producing and self-releasing his debut collection of EPs, the New York-based artist is currently offering his new songs, for free, at www.amusium.com.
K-Skeem has had his songs shopped to Tommy Rotem on Beluga Heights/Epic Records, however he wasn’t what they were looking for. K-Skeem has also shopped his own music to JPat Records which is Usher’s mother’s label along with Justin Timberlakes label Tennman Records. In 2001, K-Skeem launched his indie label Fatalistik Entertainment. On August 19th, 2010 K-Skeem signed a Licensing Contract Deal with MTV, he also launched his personal label S.M.G (Skeem Music Group). For the future K-Skeem hopes to produce for Jay-Z, work with Timbaland and Dr. Dre.

There are currently two versions of each album. One to download for free. And the other to donate. If you like the tracks I have so far, please help support! I can use the money to buy more music stuff such as VSTs to make better sounds in the unknown future...Or food. Maybe even pay some rent?
Current Albums: Thr0wB4ck - These were tracks I made a few years ago. They are more complete because I was using Magix Music Maker...So essentially, I put together sample libraries. (Gotta recover these old projects O.O)
WIPs - Which are tacks that are a work in progress. These tracks seem less complete because I am actually building them from scratch in Ableton. More to come this summer! Hopefully complete ones to!
(Above will be any news, updates, and whatever else of importance)
(Below is my bio which will be updated from time to time)
Oh jeez, another one of these
Hello! My name is Christian! Aka DJJaxxon! Long story short (for now) I moved here to the city of Pittsburgh back in fall of 2013 and currently attending collage here. I grew up in a small town were I was decently known. How I got started into Dj and music production was when I had a DJ app on my iPod hooked up to my stereo. This lovely girl saw me do this and was like, "Can you do something that I can dance to?" We practiced her dance to my simple cut version of one of Skrillex's songs. Played in front of the band of like 200 people. People said "You should be a DJ!" Picked up my first deck (that I still have) the Numark IDJ3. Got into it, loved it, DJed a few parties in my home town and have been at it a for about 2 years now. Now, I have an APC40, work with some things in Ableton, starting a new here in Pittsburgh. Just want to get myself known out there. So, I feel like this'll also be a good start. Post some WIP on here for free and see where it goes :)
Growing up on Minneapolis' south side Fancy, even at a young age expressed complete dedication to music in more ways than just her singing. Playing the clarinet, piano and trumpet as a kid only sparked her interest more and enhanced her musical abilities.Through High school she entered in to talent shows and attended drama classes with hopes of moving one day to LA to live the Hollywood dream, until she found herself to be more of a troubled teen, lost under peer pressure and eventually pregnant at the tender age of 17.
After years of pushing her love of music away, Fancy, more determined than ever left her past behind and decided it was time to dream again. With the efforts of her family and a supportive musical team backing her Fancy re-entered the music scene.
With her dynamic sound, Fancy is a multitude of talent. From R&B, Pop and even Hip Hop... Fancy does it all!With a resume that only compliments her own musical accomplishments.
Fancy has been privileged to earn writing credits for for both major and indie artist; as well as landing her own records on hit television shows and top Box Office movies.Inspired to take the music game by storm, "Bi Polar" The Album's first single dropped May 10th 2011, receiving hundreds of spins a week on both national and international radio stations. On November 11, 2011 (11/11/11) Fancy dropped her first solo self titled album "Fancy" an 11 track album containing hits like "Kiss On the Mirror" Featuring J-Stylz from the Grammy award winning group Blackstreet, and "Stick Up" Featuring Billboard hit Man Envy.
Perhaps the outside patters were what lulled their inside ears into inspiration. Perhaps the echoes against the plaster walls of an empty room made the music from their violin and piano sound all the more beautiful. Maybe it was the careless nature of an unintentional collaboration with no rules --in that particular moment-- that allowed two friends to create what has now become an unrivaled brand of orchestral indie pop music.
Or, perhaps Feather & Belle was born that day in 2010 simply because two friends wanted to create their favorite kind of art. And so they decided to spread their wings.
With respective roots in Minnesota and North Carolina, best friend duo Kelsey Kopecky and Laura Musten both followed their heartbeat to Nashville and landed at Belmont University where they first met. Their friendship was marked by laughter, ice cream for any meal, and a deep love for creating music, and the two were quickly inseparable.
Now, their compelling musical collaboration is not only rooted in deep friendship, but is also characterized by their diverse experiences in the music industry. Before becoming Feather & Belle, Kelsey toured the country singing and playing keys in indie-rock band, Kopecky Family Band, and continues to write and tour with her musical band of brothers. Kopecky Family Band has frequented the stages of CMJ Festival, Bonaroo, and South by Southwest, and has been a featured band on NPR. In addition to her musical contributions, Kelsey’s homemade art and graphic design is featured as both the band’s album artwork and merchandise design.
Laura, on the other hand, quickly emerged as a recognizable studio and performing violinist in Nashville, playing for artists like Brooke Waggoner, Chris Tomlin, Elenowen, Paper Route, and the Trans Siberian Orchestra. Most notably, she has toured extensively for 2 years with global electronic act, Owl City, and has recorded for many artists including Relient K, Owl City, Deas Vail and Breanne Duren. Her recent string arrangements and recordings are proudly featured on the Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 Soundtrack with indie band, Sleeping at Last.
Together, Kelsey and Laura as Feather & Belle are an unstoppable pair drawing from a rich well of musical history. After writing songs drenched in lessons from classical music studies that musically agree with the pop sensibilities of Fiest, Andrew Bird, Regina Spektor, or Grizzly Bear, Feather & Belle is now making their debut with an 11 song album in hand, Pockets Run Deep.
This album is in equal parts lovely and haunting, cinematic and thought-provoking, colorful and timeless. Tuning wine glasses to hover over their haunting ballad for jackals, “Zombie”, Feather & Belle present a battle between good and evil told in a 3 movement orchestral composition laced with whispers and wind-chimes. Whether it is the retro handclaps in their Motown influenced tune, “Tennessee Baby”, or lush string orchestration in songs like “Dress”, Pockets Run Deep is truly a visual narrative that showcases the grand nature of these multi-instrumentalist songwriters who have composed songs made to simply make you feel alive.
And so the story of best friends turned band begins. Sunlight is beaming through their windows, and Feather & Belle now have a song to sing to the world. After all, birds of a feather will find a way to flock together.
