Biography

Squint is the name of more than one artist
1) an alternative rock band.
2) OC ReMixer Hai Nguyen
3) Splodgenessabounds

1) Originating in the icy tundra of the beautiful and remote Upper Peninsula of Michigan, squint has always been a band focused on gathering experiences to write about. They packed up and moved to Louisiana after high school so that they could play more cities and see new places. Their incessant touring has consistently interfered with love, however, and helped the band become deadly-accurate portrait artists of broken relationships. Strong as their passion for writing music may be, they are a band ultimately devoted to the live performance.
The band made their first full record, Beeker, on a total budget of $1200 in Houston, TX. Though it was obviously a freshman effort, the songwriting was there, and the album opened doors for squint to begin touring regionally. They acquired a fair amount of recognition in the South and Southeast, and their first “big break” came when they landed a show opening for the Toadies in Monroe, LA. Then, soon after, they played their first arena show, opening for the Goo Goo Dolls at Louisiana Tech University.

When it came time to record the next album, squint got the attention of producer, Ed Stasium. Ed is a legend; the man responsible for recording dozens of successful acts including The Ramones, Soul Asylum, and Rev. Horton Heat.

    haha-- check this: i'm scrobbling the "sona+[US]" /radio/ , so it streams shit-- you know? (yeah, stupid lastfm node for sOna [from PA, USA]... whatever)... but the POINT IS... Squint - "Glimmer and ... " just played-- all random-like, and very cool, i might add. Not sure if i have that single from the AMA days (of D/L all of those shits), but i know i've played the hell out of "Anthem for Closure", on my own accord, as prob can see by my music lib stuffs.... In other news, Rock-on Squint! - all the best, JS

    (copied, manually, by author from title page, "Anthem for Closure")... I absolutely love this song-- and it was hitting me right at that point-- which this song is /about/ (lyrically speaking). Squint is a great band; great group of individuals. More people should listen to more squint. ... dododo... man, i love that simple little riff in the chorus there-- was the vocals ride over it-- very cool; very simple, yet -- it's like-- how did no one think of /that one/ before. very well done. These guys know me, from "sOna", state college, PA. I'm very pleased to see the success unfold upon them, as it has. All the best. man, i can't tell you how much i miss being there (i do not perform anymore, currently.)
