Details:

"Sphynx is three hardworking, passionate friends synced through the love of music. Together, they have been playing since their youth. Now, with a more mature sound, they have come together to wow audiences with their catchy electro-pop tunes and their unique stage performances. Sphynx is creative, ambitious, and dedicated." Cory Green - Vagabond Collective Blog

Cory Dennis, Todd Harris, and Aaron Miller's first glimpse of success came in high school with The El Guapos, a popular indie-rock outfit that disbanded after three years of packed Austin venues, a capacity performance at the 2009 NAMM SXSW-Underage showcase, and a botched European record deal. While Miller and Harris studied at The University of Texas, Dennis honed his recording and production skills, founding Indie Fort Studios and working with local favorites like Zlam Dunk, Mother Falcon, and Little Lo. The three remained best friends and it wasn't long before they embarked on another musical project, this time experimenting with pop and electronic music. They called it Sphynx. 

 Propelled by several Austin artist collectives, Sphynx's debut single, “Razberry Wine,” was released on two local compilations and picked up by University of Texas radio station, KVRX. Sphynx gained more momentum with the February 2011 release of their debut EP, 'Human Beast.' Critics applauded the EP's "elaborate synth pop," and proclaimed that "here we've got a new breed" who "recycles a bit of history and puts a bit of soul to their songs." During the summer of 2011, 'Human Beast' charted in the top 30 on radio stations in Canada, Alaska, New York, Michigan, Florida, California, Louisiana and Texas. The EP's appeal soon expanded beyond radio and in August of 2011, 'Human Beast' was licensed by MTV, VH1, Showtime, E!, Oxygen, and Fox Sports Network for use on over 18 programs.
