Jack Rose is a guitarist, originally from Virginia, USA. In the mid '90s he joined the noise/drone group Pelt with Patrick Best and Mike Gangloff. Over the course of ten years and a dozen records, Pelt transformed slowly from an electric group, heavily influenced by Sonic Youth, the Dead C and Theater of Eternal Music-style minimalism to an acoustic maximilist group whose sound has been described as "a swirling keening drone, that unlike much drone music, is not at all simple, instead it is a lush and multi layered wash of minor key melodies, stretched and smeared into a slightly ominous, almost cinematic extended dirge, intense and gorgeously imbued with all sorts of feeling and emotion, not often found in experimental minimalist musicks".
Hush Arbors, whose real name is Keith Wood, is an American folk musician. His music sees traditional folk merged with elements of drone and psychedelic music, in the vein of other modern folk acts such as Six Organs of Admittance.
Along with releasing solo material, he is also a regular member of Six Organs of Admittance, Wooden Wand, Sunburned Hand of the Man, Zodiacs, Golden Oaks, and Totem.
