These musicians are some the best currently living:

Clara Oman
Clara is Pete's sister.  She is and unbelievable talent.  She is the entire outfit!  She has the brains, the beauty and the bass (that Peter learned to play on.)  She is a one-of-a-kind singer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, composer, producer, and performer.  Her piano skills will make you wish you had kept up your lessons, or just make you quit, all together.  As brother and sister they have worked on many things together.  She is featured on "Ohio," playing accordion and they both sang all the backing parts together.  Pete has contributed Cuatro, Clarinet, and Pedal Steel to some of Clara's songs; whatever her musical whim of the day should require.  Go listen, enjoy and tell a friend!  

The Explorers Club 
Jen and Pete both contributed to the various harmonies and backing vocals of the album Grand Hotel (Released 2/14/12).

The Fortunate Sons 
(Pete was their live Bass player)

Josh Dillard  
Joshua is Pete's cousin. Dillard is a tremendous writer and singer. If there was only one project Pete could have helped with in 2013, it would have been Bright Light of Shipwreck.  (Electric and Pedal Steel guitars.) Josh and Pete just recorded an EP together to be released in 2015. 

Sam Hughes 
Pete played Pedal Steel on the album Stacking Up My Stones (Dec. 2011).

Cameron Nelson
After seeing his work on Josh Dillard's Whale and the Sea, we knew we had to use this guy to design our album art. 

Corey Sleap
Corey is a dear friend from Australia who took some picture of us while we were there on holiday.  He is amazingly talented. Check out his work. His photo of Pete and Jen is featured in our Photo section.
