He's also been known to play bass with a strange songwriter who lives down the street from him by the name of Jasey Davis.

Devin Myers

Troubadour, Musician, and New Mexico born Renaissance Man, Devin has been legendary in many different ways, known coast to coast as The Southwest Kid. Honing in his skills growin' up a lot in Austin, TX, passing through his home in NM while living in Northern California for his most recent years. Touring, writing, playing, changing, and experiencing this life that he is so lucky to enjoy, hate, and all in between. No article or bio will ever be able to cover a speck of his life entirely -- being back in Taos, he is working hard to be part of a community again. He does not work on Taos Time so excuse him for his Jack Hammerish motivation. He is your Utility Knife -- Use Him!!!

Kiki Shakti

Kiki Shakti

As a little girl, Kiki’s world was filled with glittershimmer, rainbows, unicorns and mermaids. Throughout her thorough and prolonged teenage-angst-goth-punk phase (which may have never truly ended), the glitter turned black and her darker sensibilities coagulated. This awareness combined with a great love for sci-fi and camp have been the basis for her award-winning, and sometimes controversial, films. These include Golden Framboise, a tricked-out, glam-trash space adventure in the land of camp, which won the award for Best Screenplay at the 2006 CinemaTexas Short Film Festival, the Taos Bentley Super 8 Film Festival’s Sasquatch on Skis and Bin Caught Stealing Vol’s. 1-3, and the music video for Tina and Her Pony's song, Far Away. Her latest music video, the Vajazzle, by the band Vanilla Pop, can be seen on YouTube: http://youtu.be/OTqPT0Wt7Ws.

Mel has always had trouble focusing (look, a puppy!) but maybe that's not such a bad thing when it means exploring a diverse range of interests like writing, photography, metalsmithing, dancing, acting, and even a little puppetry. She is a sucker for all things furry, most things scaly, and some things slimy.
