James Alexander - Vocals, Guitar
Antoinette Ady - Violin
James Alexander was born into a family of performing artists and was always captivated by Music. Singer/Songwriter for 9 projects total, most of them being either Hard Rock or Progressive Metal, he has decided to finally take a different approach and push his Music career on a more Acoustic level.
Antoinette Ady was trained as a classical violinist but enjoys involving the violin into a slightly more hardcore field. Lover of Punk and Hard Rock in general, she prefers to let the true beauty of the Violin (it's chaotic and naked sound) shine through in a format not unlike how most Rock performers play.

From David Carus at http://www.artistsrunthisplanet.com/3/post/2012/06/the-arcane-insignia-a-beautiful-tempest-of-sound.html
"James Alexander on guitars and vocals coupled with Antoinette Ady playing violin yields a ferocious and powerful dynamic duo. Their music is exciting and sweepingly emotional, leaving you with the feeling that you've been taken on a wild, epic romance in some forgotten world. Songs that haunt you, lyrics that seep into you and strings that keep pulling you into a musical wonderland, what more could you ask from a pair of musicians which surpass the usual songwriting formats and dive into new territory.
The dictionary credits "arcane" to mean: known or understood by very few; mysterious; secret; obscure; esoteric and the word "insignia" as: a distinguishing mark or sign. The Arcane Insignia create a unique style of music that weaves tons of subtle and secretive feelings, however based on the response they have received from only their first, few released songs and early performances, they promise to be an act that will not remain hidden or misunderstood for long. They are that rare combination of artists which specialize in doing what art was meant to do: create an emotional impact. This pair is sure to leave their insignia on you, cherish the opportunity."
