Award-winning songwriter, performer, music producer and sound engineer, Dexter Ihnen knows a thing or two about performing. He’s been on stage since he was five and danced on National UK TV, by the time he was a teenager. Dexter presents a show based on Live Guitar and vocal that features mainly original material, but also showcases adaptations of an array of covers and classics.
Those who follow Second Life’s poetry circles may know Morgue McMillan-Shoreland, a German poet well known here. She’s been published in various literary magazines and has been inspired by social issues, mythology, spirituality and relationships.
Sweethearts is a central gathering place, part of the dating scene, where many happy couples first meet. Shannon and Blake own the comfortable venue and truly care about their patrons.
Kage Stratten is a real-life sculptor, painter, musician, and poet with over 20 years’ professional experience in creative design and the arts. He is also the co-owner of a lovely Italian-themed art sim named Lyrica. Kage has a heart of gold and a natural talent to create virtual sculptures with true meaning and grace.
