Close your eyes and drop into the scene around you as a short story evolves.
These are the musicians who comprise the band. Eli (lead vocals and guitar) has a history as a street performer and carries that charismatic presence to the stage. His passion grabs your attention; his openness invites you to sit down and stay awhile.
Damon Waitkus (backing vocals, multiple instruments) creates evocative textures that weave through the music. His tenor voice is like light layered on Eli's baritone.
Luke Seldon (bass) creates punchy bass melodies. He combines a great contrapuntal sense with an innate rock drive, resulting in beautiful tense passages.

Guest drummer Jim Kassis has played with artists including Adam Levy, Rinde Eckart, and Rob Berger.
Guest instrumentalist Caroline Penwarden has played with Beth Custer and opened for Fred Frith.
