Ssion (pronounced "shun") is an art-punk act fronted by flamboyant vocalist/artist Cody Critcheloe well known for their extravagant live shows. Musically they draw from a wide range of influences, including the punk spectacle of Iggy Pop and the dance-party new wave of the B-52's as well as performance art and gay culture. Critcheloe's artwork graces the cover of Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Fever to Tell (2003) and the video for Liars' "There's Always Room on the Broom" (2004). Besides Critcheloe, Ssion's membership includes, among others, backup vocalists Taylor Painter-Wolfe and Shannon Michaels, who respectively create costumes and stage props for the act's live shows.
