Hannah Lieb, born and raised in St. Louis, MO grew up on pop music before delving into songwriting as a high school freshman. Hannah has a diverse background as a singer, touring the US, Argentina, and Spain with Millikin University's top Vocal Jazz and Choral ensembles in addition to performing original music on a regular basis. She recently moved to Chicago where she is working on her debut record while she continues to pursue songwriting and performing.

Originally from Manchester England, now residing in Chicago, he toyed the scene in various bands and guises before venturing alone under the not too imaginative nom-de-plume Steven P. Robinson. As far back as 2004 he released 'The Thrill of Discovery, The Pain of Invention' to favorable reviews from (now defunct!) music websites Angry Ape and High Voltage, a co-release with French record label Drunkdog and a feature on Fat Cat Label's demo archive. After a musical hiatus he broke out of his cocoon and formed two-piece ‘Adam & Steve’ for a one-off show in 2010 and EP Release 'And On The 6th Day God Created Adam & Steve’. Since then Steven P. Robinson has continued to record solo, releasing several EPs of his own brand of lo-fi tunes, and playing shows around the city.

A Montréal-born Trinidadian-Canadian, Zaynab Wilson brings a wealth of cultural and musical diversity to her sound. Her recent Live EP (2018) is the debut to her emergence as a fronting singer-songwriter where she draws musical and rhythmic inspiration from her Caribbean roots and merges with folk, her heart and soul. Her voice is sweet, unaffected and naturally blended, and carries a strong sense of rhythm. Zaynab’s passion for music has aligned her with prominent artists in Canada, Trinidad, Mexico, Australia, UK and Germany, in her capacity as a drummer and percussion. She also independently organized two solo tours of western and eastern Canada in 2018. Continuing with the flow, she is working on a studio EP and a July 2019 summer tour in USA and Canada.
