Sozio is the live performance vehicle for songwriter Christopher Mir. A renowned visual artist, Mir also has a prolific musical imagination, regularly recording (unreleased) albums at home in rock, folk and avant-garde styles. Sozio is a project more in the pop mode, with sharp hooks and clever lyrics. Mir sings and plays guitar, backed by the rhythm section of Scott McDonald (drums) and Anthony Florio (bass).

Or, as Mir puts it:

Planck scale geometries and psi phenomenon merge to form the sonic bliss that is Sozio.  Sozio is—according to the most recent evidence—Scott McDonald (hitting on drums and flagons of wine), Christopher Mir (singing and guitarring in quantum super position), and Tony Flowers (playing anti-bass for the masses). Do the world a big favor—love Sozio right now. Yolo punks!

Well, I told you he is an artist.
