WVM is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, performer, programmer and visual artist from Los Angeles. WVM is not an acronym and the letters in the name don’t actually stand for anything. The name was chosen for the potential design aspects of the letters. "I like how the letters make a wave. Everything is made of waves, from sounds to all of matter, so I chose those letters for how they looked and the potential they have for different designs." At an early age WVM taught himself to play Bach and Beethoven on the piano. He progressed to other instruments later, at first creating entirely electronic music but also experimenting with mixing electronic sounds with organic instrumentation. The debut album “The End Is Only the Beginning” was mixed by Sean Beavan (Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson) who also invited WVM to record vocals at his private Blue Room Studio. The album was released in 2013 and features Chris Vrenna (Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, Tweaker) and Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle) playing drums on various songs. WVM is currently at work on a new album with a return to where he began in a more electronic and darker direction. "I love the sounds of early industrial and electro music and films from the 80s but I don't want to create music that sounds like it was made in that time. I like the creative and explorative aspects of the music back then. That's my mindset going into this new untitled album, to create something new."
“WVM has all the warm, yummy, electronic goodness of vintage Gary Numan, with instant melodic hookery and a real artist’s vision; unique, original, and accessible.” -Sean Beavan. (Producer Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, No Doubt)
