Agents of Karma was formed to fill the needs of three prolific musicians all of whom have a strong desire for artistic self expression and cathartic release. A. O. K. is known for putting on high energy live shows coupled with dynamic musicianship and non formula song writing. Drummer Patrick (Paddymike) Conlon brings a talent for arranging music from a nuts n bolts drummers perspective. Add to that plenty of touring, including trips overseas, recording sessions and gigging and, who along with his acoustic drum kit, samplers and background vocals has a deep interest in Social awareness through his work with the Occupy Wall Street movement. Outside of music Paddymike's other passion can be summed up in 5 words… "Give Blood….Play Ice Hockey". Couple that with Conrad Sparnroft’s arsenal of guitar processors, vast collection of amazing instruments and back ground of study with a who’s who list of great guitarists like: Vinnie Zummo (Joe Jackson Band), John Berenzy, Steve Khan, Bill Connors, Dave Fuiczynski (Screaming headless torsos), Vernon Reid + Hiram Bullock, and you’re off to a flying start. Conrad, a Scuba diving enthusiast also practices the martial art forms of Tai Chi Chaun, Tae Kwon Do, American Kickboxing, Wing Chun + Judo. And finally Jay Cavanaugh on Bass and Lead Vocals brings his art chameleon back ground into the mix to round it all out. Jay's interactions with the arts include: Painting, playing Bass with the 50’s legends The Del Vikings, studying with Robert Fripp’s League of Crafty Guitarists, Live Poetry, Comedic acting in a comedy troupe, appearing in various Play’s and Independent films to doing Voice Over work for Bill Plympton. He's also an ordained Minister of Music in the Church of Spiritual Humanism. An avid practitioner of Kundalini Yoga, Jay spends his down time monitoring politics through various online news portals! Knowledge is power!
