Jeff likes writing all styles of music. Currently an electrician (did I detect a pun there, Diana? -- Editor.) with an electronics background, he says he has a good ear for "noise."

William Gee has played both guitar and harmonica at The Rudyard, in addition to performing vocals. He was a member of a rock band in Atlanta, and is skilled in producing both audio and video aspects of recording. Bill is not currently writing, but is interested in collaborating with someone.

Willie James has done singles, duets, trios and bands. He plays guitar and sings, and has a band called Arizona. He writes several different kinds of songs, both music and lyrics, and says that "I've been making my living at music, and that's all I do for a living."
