Brandon Ross is a New York City-based, guitarist and composer. His work with innovators in modern Black music: Henry Threadgill, Cassandra Wilson, Lawrence D. “Butch” Morris, HARRIET TUBMAN, is legendary— “Ross is the epitome of the postmodern guitar hero, a fretboard virtuoso who adheres to no particular sound or genre, moving freely from the feedback-laden assault of the adventurous jazz-rock trio Harriet Tubman and the electronics-heavy jumble of Phantom Station to the delicate beauty of the acoustic chamber duo For Living Lovers in which he also plays banjo.” (Jazz Times Magazine). Ross is an ASCAP writer and publisher member. brandonross.nyc
Chad Taylor is a composer, educator, percussionist and scholar who is a co-founder of the Chicago Underground ensembles. He has performed with Fred Anderson, Derek Bailey, Cooper-Moore, Pharoah Sanders, Marc Ribot, Peter Brotzmann, Malachi Favors, Iron & Wine, Sam Prekop, Stereolab and more.
