7 Minutes In Heaven
7 Minutes In Heaven
We've all played 7 Minutes in Heaven, haven't we? We all remember that rush, that thrill, that excitement that took complete control over us upon entering "heaven". Whether "heaven" was a closet, a bathroom or a darkened bedroom, the enjoyment was the same. Now imagine that same youthful excitement and kick pumping into your ears. An injection of sonic delight mainlined right into your head. I give you Timmy Rasmussen.

Battle Ground, Washington / December 2011: The place and time that Timmy's electro-acoustic project "7 Minutes in Heaven" first got its start. "At first, I was releasing more acoustic/programmed induced music, but I always had in mind to pursue a "pop-punk" sound, since that was the genre I felt most connected to". I wanted to throw a couple tracks out there and see if people even liked what I had been doing. Thankfully, I received a lot of positive reactions and it felt AMAZING! "

Next came a free Christmas EP released VIA PureVolume, when Timmy's music quickly captured the attention of locals and word started spreading throughout the country. With the thrill of the attention "7 Minutes in Heaven" was receiving Timmy decided to relocate to Des Plaines, IL; a place that afforded him more time to focus on his music. This focus resulted in the digital release of two original tracks: "Undercover Lovers" and "'Strike Three".

On "Undercover Lovers," Timmy remembers: "I was really stoked about it and it was cool to experiment with different sounds starting this out. It had this rad "80's" feel to it, which was completely unintentional." On the track "Strike Three," Timmy offers: "It was actually previously released in an old side-project I started and I just completely remastered it and added the missing pieces to it from previously self-producing it. It was a bit of a fan favorite and so I felt it deserved to be shown to its full potential."

After self-releasing his first two tracks, Timmy spent all of his time since growing his fan base VIA social networking and performances as well as writing, writing, writing! "The goal is to self-release a full-length in Spring of 2013. I have a lot of songs written, but since it's going to be self-funded, I'm being particularly analytical about each one. Of course I want it to be the best it can possibly be". But that didn't stop Timmy from releasing a track, "I wanted give fans a taste of what's been brewing in my head over the last year, ha". "California" was released digitally on July 16th, 2012, and the response has been INCREDIBLE! Its catchy vocals, melodic guitars, and upbeat sound bring it all back to the original question: We've all played "7 Minutes in Heaven; haven't we? Well now you can play "7 Minutes in Heaven" anytime you want. There's one thing in mind through all of this and that is to reach out to as many people as possible. It is safe to say that big things are in the future for the 19-year-old Washington native. Keep your eyes open and your ears perked. 7 Minutes in Heaven is not only a game that brings joy to all, but also the next big name in pop music.
The Millenium
These songs are a collection of memories and instances. Of love. Of loss. Of learning. These songs are an extension of ourselves - much in the same way as our arms and legs. These songs created us more than we created them. We are The Millenium, and we are humbled that you are on our silly little social media site listening.
Taylor Scott
Formed in 2007 by brothers Nick and Ben Batton, Chil got their start in the suburbs of Akron, Ohio. The band has grown from two to four members over the years, and today, Chil’s composition includes singer and rhythm guitarist Nick, lead guitarist Ian Minnick, who joined in 2012, drummer Ben, and bassist Justin Solitro, who joined in 2015.

From their first shows in Kent, Ohio to the release of their first album, Only Good Karma in 2012, Chil’s sound has morphed from pop-punk to a cohesive blend of indie, rock, and even EDM music that creates a sound unique to Chil.

Following their pioneer album, Chil released Keep Us From Sinking in March 2014. From 2014-2015, Chil released three singles produced by Forever the Sickest Kid’s Austin Bello, and in April 2016, No Sleep, No Silence, also produced by Bello, marked Chil’s third album release.

Chil’s success does not end in Northeast Ohio. The band has played shows from Indiana to New York, and has radio play from six countries in Europe, in Canada, and in the US.

Chil does not credit a single source for their musical influence, but rather, embraces a variety of artists and genres to inspire their own unique sound. Chil looks forward to continuing to play shows and sharing their music with as many people as possible
