Singer, songwriter and keyboard whiz Snax, aka Paul Bonomo, began a life of performance in the suburbs of Washington DC, moving on to San Francisco, New York and now Berlin. Along the way, he founded the gay art rock band Fagbash, and was one half of disco-pop band Captain Comatose.
Soon after arriving in Berlin, Snax began producing his solo releases from the ground up, writing and performing mostly all instruments and vocals himself. In 2004 came the release of the electronic soul manifesto From The Rocking Chair To The Stage (Mental Groove). Fall 2006 saw Snax sound incorporating more acoustic elements on his second long-player Love Pollution (TNT/Four Music), described by Snax as being “about love, loss, bitchiness and finally redemption.” The remix for the single, ‘Honeymoon’s Over’ by Konrad Black was hailed by many as the anthem of Summer 2007. Returning to his electronic funk roots, Snax released two EP’s on UK’s defDrive followed by Special Guest Star, the flagship release on his own label, Random Records. Reflecting on his rich and rewarding career and the myriad creative interactions he’s experienced, Snax founded the House Of Snaxine. To them he dedicated Up And Coming Children (Random Records) in 2010; an exciting return to form with an eye to the future.
Snax’s performances and DJ sets deliver provocation, sleaze and fun. The result is a direct connection with the audience. His various collaborators have included Jamie Lidell, Peaches, Joey Arias and Terranova to name a few. Upon supporting The Scissor Sisters throughout Europe as their opening act, Snax was described be front man Jake Shears as “a one man fro freak show not to be missed.”
Currently, Snax is completing his fourth album, running his label and establishing his house music alter ego, Box Office Poison.
