The Animators inhabit a world of sympathetic characters and cinematic scenes, all mood and meaning. Combining the songwriting craft of artists like Peter Gabriel with the skills and modern sensibilities of producer/writers like the Neptunes, the Animators create a wide variety of beautifully engaging songs. Together only since November of 2001, the duo has already staked out a musical landscape all their own. Singer/songwriter Devon Copley was the heart of New York power-popsters The Pasties, which the All Music Guide described as "well worth keeping an eye on" shortly before they broke up earlier this year. His song "The Wreck of You and Me" was awarded the Grand Prize of the 2001 Great American Song contest. Producer/songwriter Alex Wong earned a degree in classical percussion, and then sold his soul to rock & roll. Formerly part of the alternative rock quartet The Din Pedals (Epic/Sony), Wong now runs Angelhouse Studios in Venice, CA, with producer Andrew Kapner (Shuvel, Bran Van 3000).
