Phinehas Nyang'oro is a talented young vocalist and guitarist from Durham, North Carolina. He is well versed in both American music and African traditions, as he was raised traveling often with his parents to their home at Tanzania. While growing up in North Carolina, Phinehas performed in local churches, restaurants, and bars alongside jazz professors from Duke University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and North Carolina Central University. Directly out of High School, Phinehas attended the American School of Modern Music in Paris, France for one year, along with studies in vocal jazz at Cornish College of the Arts. He currently performs at local music venues, clubs, and restaurants in the Seattle area, with frequent stops to New York City and homecoming concerts in North Carolina.

Multi-instrumentalist and Portland native Machado Mijiga wears many hats, both literally and metaphorically. Classically-trained, jazz-weathered, and eclectically inclined, Mijiga left the proverbial creative "box" at a very early age, with access to many instruments and a diverse musical background brought about by an intercultural heritage. Mijiga is a musical polymath; composer, producer, bandleader, educator, gear fanatic, and audio engineer, to name a few. Authenticity and uniquity assume the locus of Mijiga's artistic identity. Self-expression is the prime directive, and the medium of choice changes like the weather.
