Gregory Moore - Singer/Songwriter"..I am a songwriter that has not written a song in years...I improvise until words stick...The concept of this project is to let the songs write themselves... Lately I have been focusing on a variety of ideas that deal with the mystery of the human soul; be it a killer on death row, a prostitute or a schizophrenic...and I also do less heavy stuff (Love songs etc...). I spend most of my time singing on the streets, abandoned beaches as well as the mountaintop hoping to find something sacred..."
Tanya Bennett- Illustrator"Tanya is a British fashion illustrator and artist based in Hong Kong. Using traditional, digital, and mixed media platforms, she uniquely mixes art and fashion illustration to explore and celebrate the beauty within all women, even if they don’t quite fit the norm. Each image is labeled with its own ‘Doris’ moniker - ‘Rainy Day Doris’, ‘Melancholy Doris’, ‘Winged Doris’... Bennett, their creator even has a Doris name of her own - ‘Pirate Doris’ - which in a way bonds the artist tightly with her art, like a mother to her slightly disturbed and malnourished offspring"

Lucius Clark - VocalistLucius has participated in many music groups and choirs. It was at the Mississippi State University Jazz and Classical Choir where he learned to control his large voice – by fuelling it with emotion. Lucius has had extensive training in multiple genres of music since then, including everything from classical works to R&B. Coming to Shanghai gave him a taste of the fresh and experimental, it was here that he was able to try new sounds and to dabble in Rock 'n' Roll. Soon after arriving, he formed a band called LX with friend Maxime Lenik, and together they played big venues in Shanghai as well as touring across China, leading Shanghaiist to conclude that Lucius 'can sing like nobody's business'. After touring, Lucius then sang backing vocals for Indian artist Majit Lovelight in NYC. Within a few months, he decided that it was time to step out again on his own, to re-initiate his trip to Shanghai, and to finish what he had started
¨ ... In 2008 Lucius entered into an endorsement deal with Sennheiser China, a German audio technology company that provides equipment and service for Lucius’ microphones and in-ear monitoring system. Lucius composed his song “If You Believe” as the theme song for the charity organization OB China (
