1. Introducing Listener
Listener started out in 2002 and consists of 3 members; Dan sings and plays bass,
Kriss is on drums and Jon works the guitar (I Am Listener, 2016).
The band aims to create a new genre, the spoken word punk rock. They write
touching poetry and give it a rough edge by adding guitar and drums.
Listener conducts themselves under a no nonsense policy, focusing entirely on the
music, with the belief all the fuss around it is superfluous. ‘We are just three normal
guys who love to make and share our music with the world, we are no different than
any of you.’ (I Am Listener, 2016)
