Bob Ardern hails from England, but has lived most of his adult life in Canada. He began learning the guitar during the 60s' and 70s' rise of popular folk music. He plays primarily finger-style guitar, occasionally contributing vocals and collaborating with other artists to create multi-instrumental pieces. Wires Rosewood & Roots was released earlier this year.

Ian Boddy and Erik Wollo are two European musicians. Boddy has been creating electronic music since the early 80s, and has become well-known for his diverse experimentations with found sound and electronic sound design and production. Boddy plays and composes in classical, jazz, rock and electronic styles. Their collaborative album, Frontiers, was released earlier this year on Boddy's record lable, DiN.
