Charlie & Kevin
Born July 17 in Venice Beach, CA. Shotwell is the secret weapon in Bliss53! Kevin first met Shotwell in 8th grade but they became best friends in their freshmen year in college. Shotwell would attend many of the Bliss53 shows until the unthinkable happened. While performing at the House of Blues in Hollywood, CA, Just a few songs into the bands set their drummer spontaneous combusted! “It’s so sad and something people don’t understand,” recalls Jay. “I think more people would know what a problem spontaneous combustion is but it’s taboo and people don’t talk about it.”
Not knowing what to do, Kevin turned to long time friend Shotwell to take up the throne. “I remember he came out for an audition and at first it was going really bad,” says Kevin. “But I remembered he’s an actor so I suggested he just acted like he knew how to play drums and then he was amazing! That guy is such a great actor!”
So now with Shotwell on the drums the band came back and released its long awaited album “Confessions of a Drama Queen” and the band has never been more strong! Shotwell on his free time is also an amazing writer and a 2 time golden globe winning actor. There’s been a rumor he might have solved the mystery to time travel but I guess only time will tell.
WE SWEAR THIS IS HOW IT ALL HAPPENED!
