Paul Kannaspuro is a Victoria BC based singer and multi-instrumentalist. He accompanies his voice most often with guitar and flute, which he seamlessly blends into his music while looping chords on his 1939 Vega acoustic guitar. Along with some original music, Paul performs a wide range of soulful tunes from influences such as Amy Winehouse, Sam Cooke, Drake, Paul Simon, Billy Holiday, Bebel Gilberto and Prince, just to name a few. Paul's compelling rhythmic style is complimented beautifully by his love for rich melodies. His ability with loops will make you believe there is more than just one performer playing!

Wes Carroll is a Victoria BC based composer, private instructor, guitarist and vocalist. His performing includes a selection of jazz, bossa nova, blues, pop, soul and groove. The instrumental and vocal songs he selects range from the early 1920's to his own modern creations. His writing whisks jazz, hip hop, fusion and soul into a new kind of froth. A performing musician for the last decade, since the age of 15, Wes has appeared in five of the last seven Victoria Jazz Festivals. In 2014 he earned a degree in Jazz Studies from Vancouver Island University where he learned about history's greats. With side-projects that include "Wes Plays Wes" (a tribute to Wes Montgomery) and the original hip hop crew "Grapefruit Is Impossible", it is clear that when it comes to genres, Wes does not play favourites. He has recorded two albums of original music: "Off Pulse Quartet, Live in Holland" (2014), and "Off Empire" - the Wes Carroll Confabulation's debut album, which is to be released early in 2018.
