Mick Ness lead singer, guitarist and founder of Social Distortion. This punk rock band was home grown right here in the OC along with Sublime. This band has heavy influences of Folk Country and Rockebilly (hillbilly/rock-n-roll). Mixx a little bit of Punk, Folk music, Country, Rock-n-roll, and you get Social Distortion.

Trey Songz
Tremaine Aldon Neverson, better known by his stage name Trey Songz, is an American recording artist, producer and actor. Since making his recording debut in 2005, Trey Songz has patiently and artfully crafted some of the most acclaimed and compelling R&B music of the decade. His first two Songbook Entertainment/Atlantic albums, "I GOTTA MAKE IT" (2005) and "TREY DAY" (2007), yielded a trio of top ten singles, "Girl Tonight," "Last Time," and "Can't Help But Wait." And when the latter song garnered Trey a coveted Grammy nomination for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance, it marked the validation of the faith shown in Trey by the late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, who hailed him as one of "the most promising R&B artists we have had since we started the company 60 years ago." Now, with the 2009 release of "READY," Trey Songz is more than ready to claim his place in the pantheon of R&B greats.
