Green Sparkle Frog / Bio

GREEN SPARKLE FROG is a Southern California based band, consisting of singer/guitarist/songwriter A.J. Marik, and drummer/percussionist Tim Kummerow.

They have collaborated on various projects for 25+ years, including The Hundredth Monkey, Cecilia Plus Minus, Pendu Femelle, Barf Bag, The Soupcoolers, Wall of Noise, Marshall O Boy & The Well Hungarians, and Benedict Arnold & The Traitors.

Green Sparkle Frog is the culmination of it all, a varied, yet cohesive offering of tunes which range from psychedelic-hard edged country-blues-pop rock/and straight ahead rock n roll, with a touch of acoustic folk - which all merge nicely into a whole body of work of Americana and Alternative Rock called, "Die Happy & Other Songs About Life," now out on CD at www.GreenSparkleFrog.com, CDBaby.com, CDUniverse, with digital downloads available here at ReverbNation.com, as well as at Apple iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, emusic, and more.

A.J. penned all of the songs on "Die Happy..," and is a highly accomplished multi-instrumentalist, playing all of the acoustic and electric guitar parts, bass, keyboards and ukelele, while also providing all of the lead and background vocals on "Die Happy."

With A.J., Tim Kummerow (a voting member in the Producer's & Engineer's wing of NARAS - "The Grammys"), co-engineered and co-produced the CD, and played all acoustic and electronic drums and percussion.

Paul Hilton joins A.J. and T.K. on several tunes on pedal steel guitar and banjo, and mastered the final mixes at his recording studio, Platinum Studios, Van Nuys, CA.

Last, but certainly not least - the legendary Chester Crill - aka, Max Buda, Fenrus Epp, Templeton Parcely - of the great American psychedelic band, Kaleidoscope (formed in 1966 with David Lindley), and the producer of iconic underground cartoonist R Crumb's first record - plays violin on the song "Green Sparkle Frog."

Green Sparkle Frog is currently being represented by Debora Nortman of A.B.A.C.A Entertainment Group, Vancouver, Canada.
