Biography

Formed in 2004 by Shalien & The Lord of The Starfields: AREA 27 is a collaborative music project that has remained somewhat enigmatic.

The debut CD ‘Magik & Mayhem’ (released June 27 2006) was conceived and recorded in an unorthodox fashion at a series of inspirational locations and makeshift studios. These locations included a converted office floor in a very cosmopolitan section of Melbourne Australia, a purple & green painted lady (Victorian house in South Central LA), a decommissioned navy base on the Central Coast of California and a magikal, serene property in the California high desert (depicted on the CD cover).

The music draws from a wide range of influences - from obvious contemporaries; Portishead, Massive Attack etc. to the not so obvious but strong influence of artists as varied as David Bowie, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, INXS, Prince, Coldplay, Radiohead & Tom Waits.

AREA 27 are currently recruiting additional collaborators and composing material for the follow up to ‘Magik & Mayhem’.
