Iron Gump, for the last seven years, has been traveling and living in Maui, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Philadelphia. Spontaneously connecting musically with different artists around the world.Through his musical exploration he has gained a deeper understanding about allowing the instruments to play him and to listen/feel the other musicians playing as well. His connection to sound has become his passion and his way of creating a space for people to explore. The universe sings!
Sean Hoots is a maker of music living in the land of West Philadelphia. Perhaps best known for his roots/rock project Hoots & Hellmouth, Hoots has been writing, recording, and performing original music across a myriad of genres for the past three decades. The last few years have found him delving deeper into the mysterious, crafting sprawling soundscapes from found-sounds, synths, guitars, and vocal manipulations. This world of contemplative, meditative music, especially when combined with the talents of Iron Gump, offers a unique opportunity for performer and listener to share a soul-plumbing experience.
Thomas Bendel is a composer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist with a focus on drums and percussion based in Philadelphia. Improvisation, exploration of texture and subversion of instrumental roles are his aspiration, although big dumb drums are just fine, too.
You can catch him playing around Philadelphia with a number of artists including Birdie Busch, Arc Divers, Jesse Hale Moore. You can hear his recorded work on albums by Birdie Busch, Johnny Miles, Ross Bellenoit, Arc Divers, and many more.
