BIOGRAPHY

Joshua Wentz is a music-maker from Chicago, Illinois. For the past thirteen years he has focused on having a complete lack of focus, creating multiple albums and EPs, completely avoiding genre classification, writing music for documentary film and commercial applications, and developing experiments in remote collaboration. He is one half of Legato Re (with Jeff LaSala) and Lemma (with Jeremy Simmons).

BAND MEMBERS
Joshua Wentz plays: piano, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, keyboards, bass guitar, accordion, concertina, melodica, melodaphone, recorder, ocarina, banjo, penny whistle, jaw harp, autoharp, xylophone, and various drum machines and percussion instruments. He also sings, claps, and finds non-musical things to make music with.
