Aside from composing music for film, John is also known for writing and performing with bands Banana Fish Zero, Statues of Liberty, and Kid Kalifornia. He enjoyed an illustrious modeling career in the ’90s, and in 2008, he was cast as a stuntman on the Fuse Network’s The Rock and Roll Acid Test.

While Zelda Adams has won acting awards on the indie film festival circuit, she has also been operating the camera since she was 9 and is now helming her own music videos and short films, including her directorial debut Noble (2008). She plays soccer and travels year-round with Nirvana360 FC. She also plays drums and sings with bands Kid Kalifornia and Hellbender.
