You take some space cadets, give them a bowl, toss in the styles of Jack Johnson, The Kinks, and The Chemical Brothers, mix, and serve. The dish that you end up with is Apollo 13, a four-piece rock/pop/electronic group based in Lawrence, KS. The band was put together as an outlet for singer Shannon Savoie and guitarist Mike MacFarland's self-recorded studio material. They knew they had something special when they won first place in the 2003 International Songwriting Competition (Dance/Electronica). Using this critical acclaim as a launching pad, they went on to release their debut album, "Brave New World", in September of 2004, garnering great initial reviews. This was followed by a nomination as a finalist in the Dance/Electronica category of the 2005 Independent Music Awards, the Electronica Grand Prize in the 2004 John Lennon Songwriting Competition, and placement in an XBox/PS2/GC/PSP video game (Greg Hastings Tournament Paintball MAX'D).
