Parthenon Huxley is a former member of ELO Part II and was born in Louisiana. He began writing and performing at the age of ten, entirely self taught. Parthenon, or "Hux" was signed by Columbia Records in 1988. Parthenon co-produced his debut, "Sunny Nights", with Grammy Award winning producer David Kahne. A classic pop album, "Sunny Nights" was hailed as " a monumental debut" by Rolling Stone magazine. Two later CDs inspired the same sort of praise from critics and fans. The first, entitled "Deluxe" and recorded this under the moniker P. Hux. "Deluxe" was voted 1995 Album of the Year by fans and writers in Audities Magazine. The second album, recorded with his other band VeG, was recently dubbed "wonderful stuff" by Mojo Magazine, which noted Parthenon's "gold dust voice and blazing guitar." Both P. Hux and VeG are notorious for sizzling live shows. VeG's performance at North By Northwest Conference in Portland, Oregon inspired one writer to say he was "blindsided by brilliance." Another called Parthenon a "pop visionary." While Parthenon is known as an excellent singer and guitarist, he may be best known for his talents as a producer and collaborator. To date, he has penned four Top-20 hits. The first, "Hello Cruel World" appeared on "A Man Called E", the debut CD from the current frontman of Eels. Parthenon's most recent hit, "Wake Me Up ( When The World's Worth Waking Up For)" was featured on the debut CD by Kyle VIncent.
