Million Billion:
By Mandana Beigi
Ready.Fire.Aim. (CD )

From packed residencies at Hotel Café and Tangier to frequent shows on the Sunset Strip, this LA trio has made a name for itself at the local hot spots. Gavin Bellour (lead vocals), Brian Ulrich (drums), and Yonatan Elkayam (keyboard/upright bass/harmonica) first played on stage together in 2005, and within a year, not only were they were able to build a strong local fan base, but they also set a release date for their debut album, Ready, Fire. Aim. (Mercy). A USC alumn, Yonatan majored in Political Science and Business while also practicing his love for Jazz at the USC School of Music. After graduation, he pursued a degree in music production and recording, which allowed him to collaborate with various artists and different musical styles. Yonatan later met Gavin, who had formed his own Latin acid-jazz band while attending UCLA. Through some local gigs and a community of musicians/friends they met Brian (a DJ turned engineering student/drummer at MI), and soon the trio began rehearsing as a band. Having come from different musical backgrounds and styles, they were able to fuse all the energy in the right direction and create a signature sound in the indie-pop scene: a combination of simple pop/rock, jazz, folk, soul, and Latin. Whether blending pop with Motown-influenced horns (“All the Time,” “Milk & Honey”) or bringing out the semi-punk beats through jazzy rockabilly (“Apocalypse Now”), Million/Billion has come up with a different formula for every song on their debut album. Ready. Fire. Aim. is co-produced by the band and Karl Derfler (No Doubt, Dave Mathews Band, Big Head Todd), who has added a progressive approach to the overall sound of an album with strong classical backdrops. As for the name, the trio held a fan contest and eventually settled on Million/Billion, as it reflects an innocent sense of limitless possibilities. And so far, they have done a great job in exploring and experimenting with the possibilities!
