Improvised Explosive Device / Bio

In late 2009, after discussing an idea with several co-workers, Jake Milam, drummer, formed an alternative hard rock music group known today as the Improvised Explosive Device (initially going under the name of "Children of the Phoenix"). Those co-workers included current lead/rhythm guitarist William Angara and former lead vocalist Mike Garcia. It wasn't until a few months after the initial formation of the band that Alex Clara, current bassist, joined the band. Needing to undergo a line-up change to compliment the unique and aggressive musical direction of the band, Mike Garcia was replaced a year later with current lead vocalist Ann Miller.

Since then, from playing in local bars (such as "The Venice Bistro" in Venice Beach and "The Tobacco Lounge" in Riverside) to performing in world-famous venues (such as "The Whisky-a-Go-Go," "The Key Club," and "The House of Blues" - all on the Sunset Strip), the band continues to make tremendous strides in staking their territory and mark in today's popular rock culture.
