Max Kutner is a Brooklyn-based guitarist and composer originally from Las Vegas, NV. He is a co-founding member of Android Trio alongside Eric Klerks and Andrew Niven which recently released its sophomore album "Other Worlds" on Cuneiform Records in October 2021. Previously, he led the experimental jazz trio Evil Genius (2012-18), the avant folk group, The Royal US (2011-18) and the mutant Klezmer septet known as Bubbeleh (2010-16). In addition to his numerous projects as a leader or co-leader, he has worked alongside a diverse roster of notable artists including Mike Keneally, Sofia Gubaidulina, Ulrich Krieger, the former members of Oingo Boingo, The Grandmothers of Invention (Zappa alumni), The Magic Band, Alphonso Johnson, Lili Haydn, Matt Darriau and many more. He previously taught guitar for non-majors at California Institute of the Arts.

Gregg Belisle-Chi is an Asian-American guitarist and composer living in Brooklyn, New York, who over the past decade has been “busily establishing himself as an important and distinctive new voice in the contemporary guitar world” and “has emerged as one of the most creatively dexterous musicians.” (Earshot Jazz) 

Described by the New York Times as “a subtle stunner,” his work draws from the spaces between the spiritual and the analytical, the ethereal and the tactile, inviting listeners to a place of pause and reflection; music that “oozes beauty both in concept and execution, making us luxuriate in its immersive sonorities.” (Part-Time Audiophile) 

Within a career of mercurial interests, he has performed with Bill Frisell, Tim Berne, Nasheet Waits, Reid Anderson, Steve Swallow, Cuong Vu, Ted Poor, Eyvind Kang, Ben Goldberg, Wayne Horvitz, and many more in the Jazz, Improvised, Rock, and Chamber music worlds.
