Scott Tuma
Add To My Artists

Scott Tuma is a musician from Chicago, Illinois, United States who is best known for having played guitar in the pioneering band Souled American. Since his departure from Souled American in the late 1990s Tuma has released three solo albums, performed and recorded with Chicago's Boxhead Ensemble, and collaborated with members of the band Zelienople in a project dubbed Good Stuff House.

Tuma's unique work is one of the primary features responsible for Souled American's highly distinct sound, though the band has continued playing without him seeming relatively unfazed by Tuma's departure. His solo work is more in line with music than or country, though elements of those and other styles are still present. Hard Again and The River 1 2 3 4 are expansive, gorgeous albums that feature Tuma playing most of the instruments himself - primarily guitar, harmonium, and organ (though he also plays bass, harmonica, and banjo) - though Hard Again, released on Atavistic Records in 2001, also includes guest spots from members of Dirty Three, Rachel's, and Boxhead Ensemble.

Jason Ajemian
Add To My Artists

The composer/musician Jason Ajemian has adeptly grafted the aesthetics of the mundane into his compositions via innovative arrangements and methodical writing experiments. His works conflate interchanging atmospheres of comfort and struggle.
Ajemian's distinctive approach has in large part been cultivated over the last several years in Chicago where he continues to be a highly audible voice in the avante garde music scene. There he initiated a concert series and regular weekly audio visual experiments at local venues like Heaven Gallery (Protest Heaven), Rodan (with his band A Cushicle) and The Skylark. Developing these venues into fertile grounds for other mavericks as well as his own ever evolving projects and experiments: Who Cares How Long You Sink, Lay All Over It, Playing You To Sleep, and Daydream Full Lifestyles with Chad Taylor, Tony Malaby, and Rob Mazurek - to name a few.
He is a member of Born Heller with Josephine Foster, The Chicago Underground Trio, Mandarin Movie, Dragons 1976, and Ken Vandermark's Crisis Ensemble. He also regularly played with such innovators as Scott Tuma (Sold American), Rob Mazurek (Isotope 217), Josephine Foster, Jeff Parker (Tortoise), and Nor [Read more]

Eli has toured extensively throughout Europe and the US, performing solo and in collaboration with artists such as Phill Niblock (performing Asheli for crotales and soprano saxophone with Ashley Paul), Aki Onda, Joe Mcphee, Loren Connors, Jandek, Roscoe Mitchell, Anthony Coleman (recording Lapidation, New World Records), Joe Morris, Steve Beresford, C Spencer Yeh, Greg Kelley (Nmperign), T Model Ford, Ran Blake, Ashley Paul and Steve Pyne (Red Horse).
