Doug Sherman (Guitar) – “Doug) I come from a musical family. My uncle was a jazz sax player in Boston and my dad played guitar. I started taking piano and violin lessons at a young age then moved on to guitar after seeing a video of Alvin Lee and Ten Years after playing “Going Home” from Woodstock. I ended up at Berklee and gigged my way through college; graduated and ended up playing in a hip hop/funk band called Pimp Carriage then joined a soul band called Superhoney. I have lots of passion for soul/disco/funk/groove. I then ended up playing with Gaff in a down tempo acid jazzy kind of project for years. Upright bass, turntables, soundscapes. Portishead meets Jeff Buckley kind of shit. Then we formed Gozu with the idea of bringing these influences to a heavier medium as such. ”

Ryan Casey (DJ/Production): “I obsess about the tone of an oscillator the way she does about a melody. It’s like she is writing a script and starring in it, and I’m the cinematographer.”
