We work ourselves wretched for one old wood coffin, if life doesn't get you, love will finish you off" sings K.S. Rhoads on his stunning debut album Dead Language, which American Songwriter Magazine declares, " is an exhibition in style, grace, and limitless possibilities." His music has been called "... a masterful marriage of indie-pop, orchestral, and american folk." His lush string arrangements recall Danny Elfman, and his lyrics recall F. Scott Fitzgerald. His live performances are rapturous and sporadic, usually with a string and vocal section. He loops himself live, layering multiple instruments and voices. He produces, scores, and writes for many other artists as well. In September, 2010, he performed with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra, for which he scored, composed and arranged all of the music himself. He has played on David Letterman, The Tonight Show, The Late Late Show and more. His new album The Wilderness is set to release in June, 2012, which he says, "...is like a group of Russian composers at an Irish pub in the wild wild west.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
