Joel Thibodeau – songs, guitars, singing & such
Plus the honorary:

Micah Blue Smaldone – guitars & singing
In Providence, Rhode Island after coming to terms with his
indefinite separation from String Builder, a songwriting partnership dating back to 1996 with brother Alec Thibodeau, Joel began plunking out tunes at the kitchen table amidst electronic church bells blaring from across the street. Just down Route 10, near the zoo, Erik Carlson was
spending much of his evenings and nights in headphones. With his long-time band Purple Ivy Shadows no longer, he and Joel co-founded and inducted themselves into the Cranstence Maze’s Union, each respectively forming AREA C and Death Vessel [and working on them collaboratively].
