Saxophonist/Composer James Brandon Lewis has received accolades from the New York TimesQ Magazine, and Ebony Magazine. He has been endorsed by jazz legend Sonny Rollins and has shared stages with Ken Filiano, Darius Jones, Jason Hwang, William Parker, Hamiet Bluiett, Hamid Drake, Ravi Coltrane, Jimmy Heath, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Joe Lovano, Dave Douglas, Marc Ribot and Anthony Coleman.

Android Trio formed during extensive touring as members of the renowned Magic Band—formerly Captain Beefheart & the Magic Band—and the Grandmothers of Invention—formerly Frank Zappa’s Mothers of Invention. After playing together on a lark at a café in Sydney, Australia in 2014, drummer Andy Niven, guitarist/bassist Eric Klerks, and guitarist Max Kutner decided to continue exploring the possibilities of combining their varied stylistic directions. 

Kevin Robinson is a composer and multi-woodwind instrumentalist who explores various interdisciplinary approaches to composition and improvisation. The Kreation Ensemble explores surrealist improvised sonic meditations.
