Read about each of the band members.
A born Kansan, I’ve settled into life in Mineral Point, WI as a family doctor, husband, father, and last, but not least, a rhythm guitarist. This band is the most musical fun I’ve ever had (aside from singing the ABC’s with my girls!).
Andy is our artisan cheesemaker by day, mandolin aficionado by night. We love Andy's calm steadiness, and he serves us well as our musical conscience.
My partner, Richard, and I moved to Wisconsin from Chinatown, Manhattan, New York City in the winter of 2000. My life here is thrillingly filled with creative pursuits! We have an art gallery — Green Lantern Studios. I make sculpture. (Do you believe in nature or nurture? My parents were artists/musicians!)
I’m a stay-at-home mom working with Libby, Josie, and Colette. The hours are long but very rewarding. I also teach private voice lessons. In my past life I was a music editor and did some recording for GIA Publications in Chicago.
My life is so much richer from sharing the joy and obsession of music with friends. I love old-time fiddle music, have played for square and contra-dances over the years, and have chased ephemeral moments of complete rapture around many campfires. Jazz, country and western swing call to me. We grow out of many traditions and bring it all along. Being in this band has expanded my musical horizons. I listen to something new and get excited. Point Five creates magic in relationship, vocal harmony, wistful longing, love and loss, some driving bluegrass, some lament. I lose myself in the moment.
