Former Contributor

Hello there, my name is Kyle Kohner from San Bernardino, Calif. and I am a current journalism student at Biola University. I am a self-proclaimed film buff and a music addict which translates into my passion for writing. I am a huge ‘90s rap aficionado who will argue Tupac is the greatest rapper of that era over the Notorious B.I.G. Aside from being a huge rap fan, I am an avid dream pop and new wave consumer and can be found listening to the likes of M83, The Cure and New Order.

A message from the Editor/Founder of Amped Sound, Danielle

Hello everyone! I have an announcement to make that pains me greatly. Amped Sound will be taking a hiatus. Over the last 4 years, we have had a blast providing you content on your favorite bands, and being where you go to get your Warped Tour setlists. I never thought that Amped would grow to what it has, and that wouldn't have happened without the fans and our wonderful staff. This isn't an end for us, just a break to let us all breath and rebuild AS to what we want it to be. Any content that was already scheduled for the rest of the year will be posted as such. Thank you to everyone who has believed in us, and put for the effort to help make Amped Sound what it has become. We will see you soon. Subscribe below to be notified of future updates from us.
