Born in the states but raised in Israel, Kelli Rudick spent endless hours playing in the echoing sound of the bomb shelter just outside the family's house on the outskirts of Tel Aviv. In 2007 Kelli released 'No One Knows You're Foreign', a distinctive work introducing her unique way of accentuating emotionally complex compositions by drawing percussive rhythms from the fretboard and body of the guitar while coaxing chordal melodies and harmonics from the strings. Kelli Rudick has collaborated with notable artists including Nick Zammuto of the aleatoric electro-folk duo The Books, Alon Leventon of the project Drops of Conciousness and the electro-indie group Zigmat, and recorded and toured with internationally acclaimed guitarist Kaki King. She's scored music for Queer Eye For The Straight Girl, 'The L Word' fashion show, and the films 'A Night in the Sunlight' and 'Absolutely I Do'. Kelli has toured throughout the United States and Europe, and has played extensively in her adopted hometown including shows on the main stage of The Knitting Factory, the Blue Note, Galapagos, the Cutting Room, a month-long residency at the Living Room, and headlining a full house fronting her five-piece band at Joe's Pub in New York City.

Alexander Turnquist is a multi-instrumental musician who creates instrumental music inspired by the beautiful moments of everyday life that can be often lost.
