Steve Almaas kicked off his musical career in Minneapolis, Minnesota with the first-wave punk band The Suicide Commandos. A move to New York included some experiments with post-punk pop and led to the formation of punky country soul rockers Beat Rodeo who had success with a couple of albums in the mid 80s. As a solo artist, he's made several albums of note and teamed up with photographer Ali Smith to record two albums of duets. His last album was a reunion with The Suicide Commandos, released in 2016. Steve is currently doing pre-production work for a new solo album.
Karen Schoemer and Mike Griffin are half of the band Sky Furrows. Griffin is an encyclopedia of guitar sounds and textures, and Schoemer is on a lifelong quest to make less sense
