BREAKAWAY DAILY: You have been acting since the age of six, how did you catch the acting bug?
GIZEM: I can say that I was really curious about everything back then, especially when it came to the entertainment business, I was really confident and happy mostly in singing and acting. They always felt like home. I was the “funny but weird” one in the class. I wasn’t popular or anything in fact, I was a really quiet student. I first discovered that our school had an acting course by my best friend.
Eleri embraces contrast on her gorgeously lush full-length debut, Love Cyanidation where she delivers a plaintive tale of unrequited love. She remains entrenched in the classical training she received in her youth while also forging into the electronic expanse mined by mavericks such as Imogen Heap, Nine Inch Nails, Björk, and deadmau5. As a result, the Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and producer conjures up a seductive sound that is unequivocally her own.
Growing up in a small town just north of Chicago, Eleri immersed herself in music, taking guitar, voice, and piano lessons and frequenting Berklee College of Music summer programs.
Doublehead Music consists of Shaun; a composer, vocalist, drummer, and keyboardist. He also dabbles in some slide guitar now and then. He studied jazz dumset performance at CalArts (California Institute of the Arts) that includes notable alumni such as Tim Burton, Katy Sagal, Dustin Hoffman, and Sofia Coppola. When Shaun is not making music, he teaches drums privately. How’s that for beating to the tune of your own drum!
Shaun’s music is not intended to be modeled after a certain style, but authentic self-expression. His music is influenced heavily by jazz, triphop, and fearless self-expressionists like Bjork, Portishead, and Radiohead.
Writer & director Greg White channels Hitchcock in must see film Separation.
I am a huge follower and supporter of independent and Canadian cinema. There is some terrific work being done out there, and I love being able to share some of them with my audience. Separation, is no exception. It is not your typical home invasion film and really catches you off guard. Separation is a gem of a film that is packed with twists and turns. It will genuinely keep you guessing to the very end, and then urge you to watch the film all over again. I

I have been a fan of Tokio Hotel since 2008, and even started a fan radio called 483 Radio. It was around this time that Bill, Tom, George, and Gustav were the biggest band in Europe and preparing to take North America by storm. There was something so fresh, different and magnetic about them, and even today that is what separates them from everyone else in the music business.
