Hypnogaja writes and performs "melodic, sophisticated songs that cater to no trend” according to GRAMMY®-nominated songwriter Wendy Waldman (Garth Brooks, Vanessa Williams), producer of the band’s Acoustic Sunset – Live at the Longhouse. The band has recorded and produced several critically acclaimed albums, toured the U.S. and Canada and garnered attention from fans around the world.
Founded by vocalist Jason “ShyBoy” Arnold and keyboardist Mark Nubar Donikian, Hypnogaja is the winner of several Hollywood Music in Media Awards, including Best Alternative Artist (for their performance of the song “Welcome To The Future”) and Best Male Vocal (for ShyBoy’s performance of the Donna Summer classic “On The Radio”).
Numerous television shows, motion pictures, video games, apps and soundtracks have featured Hypnogaja's music, including Warehouse 13 (SyFy), the Scream 4 movie trailer (Dimension Films/The Weinstein Co.), America’s Next Top Model (CW), Carrie (NBC), Cold Creek Manor (Touchstone), Dirt (F/X), FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage (Warner Bros. Interactive), Las Vegas (NBC), One Life To Live (ABC), Roswell (WB), Sex And The City (HBO), The Looking Glass Wars (Scholastic), Tru Calling (FOX), Valentine (Warner Bros.), Tap Tap Revenge 3 (Tapulous) and many others.
The band’s Below Sunset album was described by Outburn magazine as "enthralling, first-rate modern rock," Apple.com as "soulful rock with a subtle electronic backdrop" and the Denver Post as music that "pushes boundaries." Their critically-acclaimed concept LP Truth Decay was hailed by Outburn as an "expertly crafted album."
