JOE JOE SCOTT - Guitar
A Chicago Native, Joe Joe Scott naturally grew up a fan of traditional blues and blues-rock music. With influences such as Albert, Freddie, and B.B King to classic rockers Jimmy Page, Slash, and Joan Jett, Joe Joe's guitar playing employs a wide range of musical sounds and genres. While he thinks of himself as a bluesman first, he has an aggressive style of playing, combining lighting fast firey licks with smooth melodic intricacies that mix 8 years of musical experience into a tornado of supersonic force.
When not playing guitar, Joe Joe spends most of his time reading comics, playing video games, and looking at memes. He is also a big Game of Thrones fan and hopes that the conclusion of the book series differs from the ending of the show.
CHRISTIAN FRITZ-KLAUS - Vocals
Christian Thomas Martin Fritz-Klaus, aka Fritz, wasn't born a singer. As a youngster, he did everything in his power to get out of singing in choir and school plays. To make up for it, he played percussion instruments, which he continued to pursue throughout high school. He then started writing stories, poems, and lyrics. Now, Fritz is a singer-songwriter composing pieces about philosophy, social justice, love, myths and legends.

Will Fox - Keys
Will is a self-taught keyboardist who also specializes in synthesizers. He has been playing all his life, but really started diving deep a few years ago via learning his favorite video game music and remixing the songs on his YouTube channel Willfox Piano. Unfortunately, Will was born with a visual impairment called Stargardts which has severely reduced his vision. This has been a huge motivating factor for seeking improvement in music and making new connections. Luckily you don't have to see to hear and feel the magic of music.
