Josh Stevens (above left) is a Memphis-based multi-instrumentalist. A singer/songwriter by day and psychedelic sonic architect by night, he has an affinity for all things pedals and noises that project onto as many astral planes as possible. When he’s not making strange esoteric sounds, you’ll generally find him locking into the groove behind the drum kit with many bands, some of whom you may know, in any town that will have them. A luthier by trade, he follows his prowess and love for music to its core structure and foundation, analyzing all the details, eager to find out just what makes the pieces tick.
Taylor Gorman (above right) graduated from LSU in Creative Writing and received his MFA from Wichita State University. His work has appeared in The New Orleans Review, Passages North, Cutbank, and The Cincinnati Review. He lives in Austin, TX with his cat.
