Andrew Christensen grew up in a dense cloud of music in Madison, WI. As a young lad, he recalls hootin’ and tootin’ on an old harmonica, dancing on the couch to his father’s boogie-woogie piano playing, and his mothers record collection (Elvis and Bob Marley being two early favorites), dreaming of the day when he would take the stage himself.
Starting out on the drums, Andrew began playing reggae and jazz at bars and parties, collecting records and reading endlessly about music history. After a particularly angsty year of heartbreak, he walked down to Greg Ginter’s with his last couple of bucks and came home with Wanda, the guitar that would change history. Fingerpicking blues, honky-tonk country, Appalachian banjo frailing and jug band music are his current obsessions. He also showers regularly.
Andrew Christensen’s debut album “Tomorrow I’m Gone” was released January 5th, 2018. You can stream, download, and order your copy here.
Chloe Louise decided that singing was what she wanted to be doing around the age of two, when Julie Andrews taught her you could sing in public and she figured out costumes could be made out of curtains.
Years later, after receiving her first tape player, along with a combination of Elvis, the Grease soundtrack, and TLC tapes (thanks, Mom), she realized that you could not only sing songs, but also make up your own words. At the arrival of her first guitar in her early teens, Chloe has dedicated her life to writing music that maintains the perfect balance of sparkle and wit.
Her influences include everything from Shania Twain to Drake. Singing in her shower solidly remains one of her number one hobbies.
Her debut album “Hard to Tell” will be released in the spring of 2018.
Xander Anim is not who you think he is.
His influences are Metallica and the unceasing rhythm of the moon and stars.

Nate Meng & the Stolen Sea
Four sailors lost on a Stolen Sea
Find strength in collective energy
a sound, undefined
at times, unrefined
To be understood must be seen.
They are a band.
They are individuals.
They are love and anger.
They are the thrill of a chaotic universe.
Their songs are about us.

Not From Earth. The band of misfit music makers he co-founded.
Advocate. A traveler, a philosopher, a gentlemen.
The Werewolverine sounds like the love child of Beat Happening, Waylon Jennings, and an owl lifting a mouse from freshly fallen snow.
