Hailing from Medan in north Sumatra, ILHAM SUHADA emerged from the Indonesian pop and rock scene in the 2010’s as a highly in-demand live and session bassist, most notably for the popular blues and soul band Brewok, which also included Ava Prabawa on lead vocals.
From 2020 through early 2022, Ilham and Deane Ogden comprised the rhythm section for Bandung singer Arheta, crossing stages frequently with Faizar Fasya, so it was only natural that the trio reunite as an original unit to form SCK.
Ilham plays Fender bases and D’Addario strings.
Drums, Keyboards, & Production
For four decades, American drummer and record producer DEANE OGDEN has recorded and performed with some of music’s most influential artists including Stevie Wonder, David Foster, Al Green, Tina Turner, George Duke, Chaka Khan, Britney Spears, Seal, Robbie Williams, Mary J. Blige, Gavin Degraw, Joss Stone, The Corrs, and dozens more.
During the beginning stages of the 2019 pandemic, Deane co-founded SOULsvc Entertainment with British promoter Graeme Storr and has also served as an A&R consultant for Warner Records since 2009.
Deane proudly endorses Kyre Drums, Nebulae cymbals, Vater drumsticks, and Hardcase cases.
FAIZAR FASYA has enjoyed a long and storied career as a topflight session and touring guitarist for numerous Indonesian artists like Afgan, Vidi Aldiano, Zorte, Kunto Aji, and more. In 2013, Faizar and Deane Ogden played together for the first time on stage in Jakarta and have remained friends ever since. After Faizar relocated to Bali in 2021, the pair reconnected and formed SCK.
Faizar uses Ibanez guitars, NUX electronics, and Ernie Ball strings.
AVA PRABAWA rose to national prominence as Indonesia’s fan favorite during the third season of The Voice Indonesia. Bali born and bred, Ava has recorded and performed for more than twenty years in bands as well as his own solo act prior to his time on The Voice.
Always Deane and Faizar’s #1 pick to front Stone Cold Killers, Ava’s busy performance schedule pushed the band to audition other singers, thinking him unavailable. After Ilham Suhada suggested reaching out again to Ava, the band scheduled an afternoon jam session whereupon they ended up writing their first original song together and Ava joined the band that day.
Ava uses Sennheiser microphones and NUX electronics.
Known affectionately as "Mr. Perfect", prodigy saxophonist CAAM is the salt in the caramel of Stone Cold Killers, providing the smoke and spark the band has become known for in their blistering live shows. After honing his chops at university, Caam accepted an invite to Bali from Aulya Rahman of The Bardogs, whom Deane Ogden had just finished producing an album for. After seeing Caam perform the first time, Deane shared the vision for SCK and Caam joined the band the following week.
Caam proudly plays Zeff horns, Lebayle mouthpieces, D’Addario reeds, JTS mics, and NUX electronics.
