Pete Crossland, aka "Antiqcool", finds it quite difficult to describe himself as an artist, and the music he creates. Although he tinkers with other instruments, he feels most at home playing acoustic or electric guitar, he's been playing on and off since he was six years old, so it’s become a big part of who he is now. The idea for a song can start with a few words, or a guitar riff and Pete spends many hours recording basic ideas that sound interesting, then overdubbing other guitar parts, until he hears something that sounds right. If he gets goosebumps, it’s usually a good sign. If you, the listener, play the finished song and get goosebumps, then he's done a good job.

Eternalkeys is an instrumental music project consisting of soundtracks created by the modern Italian composer / keyboardist / arranger Mimmo D'Ippolito (18/12/1982 - Brindisi). It is a journey through both unknown worlds of fantasy and mystery, and real existential sensations, with influences ranging from the world of soundtracks, soundscapes, electronica, classical and modern music and more. The name of the project comes about from the juxtaposition of the ethereal concept of eternity and timelessness with the musicality of the keyboards: the central instrument of the project.
Swedish artist/musician/composer/teacher Tomas Reinerson - aka “Kiwi” - has made a living out of his bass playing for the majority of his life. Touring, teaching and playing bass are his middle names. Genre wise he's been all over the place, playing everything from 40's jazz to present top 40's and metal, partly because of his classical schooling but also out of pure curiosity.
