Steve Von Till is an American musician, songwriter, educator, and poet. He is best known as a singer and guitarist in the highly influential and genre defying collective, Neurosis, which has been credited with changing the face of heavy music over the last 35 years. Since 1999 Von Till has composed and recorded five solo albums of his unique style of sonic composition.
Von Till’s solo music as a singer songwriter has been described as a hybrid of haunting folk songs, ambient rural psychedelia and expansive gothic Americana full of melancholic beauty. Von Till’s weathered, distinctive voice and sparse instrumentation provide the foundation for these mostly quiet and subdued songs, which still manage to evoke vast emotional power as Von Till’s raspy whisper dives deeply inward and speaks of visions, memories, and self-reflection in a way that feels both seasoned and exposed.
Alison Chesley, who performs under the name Helen Money, is a Chicago based cellist who has become known for her adventurous sound, bold compositions, and compelling stage performance.

Chesley has released five solo records, as well as appearing on hundreds of albums with artists such as MONO, Anthrax, Russian Circles. Bob Mould, Chris Connelly and Jarboe and has toured with Shellac, Neurosis, Sleep, Earth and Bob Mould among others.
“Helen Money has created a direct and emotionally stunning album which can flip between tenderness and fear, rage and serenity. A perfect example of a universal story being told by a master of their craft” - Louder Than War on Atomic
