VERA SOLA is a poet, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist. A drifter performing her own songs alone in and out of dark bars under various pseudonyms, Vera Sola toured and recorded with a variety of artists, for a long while accompanying singer-songwriter Elvis Perkins on the road. She has in turn collaborated on film scores and provided original music for theater and performance art. In early 2017, she experienced a total shift in relation to her voice and musicianship, and only then was she finally compelled to record and release her own songs. In the days following, hiding out in a studio in St. Louis, she wrote, arranged and performed all the parts on her upcoming LP 'Shades.' Sound making, for her, has always been like mediumship. A channeling. There is no template for what it should be...no genre other than the strange night music within her, born more from intuition and surrender rather than any formal construction.

CUSHIONS is the wobbly bump'n grind art-ska music songs played by Kristin Worrall and Rob Erickson. Kristin Worrall is a performer, sound designer and pastry artist.

Ms. Worrall is a Henry Hewes Design Nominee, a recipient of the A.R.T. New York Theater Grant for Sound Design, and is an alumni of the Lincoln Center’s Director’s Lab and the Watermill Center. Rob Erickson (lumberob) is a writer and a performer and a musician. He wrote and performed his first long-format solo piece, OFF THE HOZZLE, in residency at Dixon Place in 2008. He made music for Nature Theater of Oklahoma's obie-winning NO DICE ... and CHOREGRAPHIE as well. He designed sound for Laura Peterson Choreography's show, FOREVER, presented at DNA in 2009. In the past present future he has collaborated with Jad Fair, Kevin Blechdom, Blectum from Blechdom, PFFR, misnomer, Kramer, and Half Japanese.

They made four full-length albums: the kissyface, TEXXXAS, long-range rapid-fire, and Tough Titty.
