Chas Johnson performs primarily with electronic media including drum machines, sequencers and computers as well as the bass guitar. He began playing in bands in Ohio as a student at Antioch College and continued in Atlanta, and the DC area. His interest in ’80s music and New Wave/Post Punk was formed during his days as a model for the House of Walker in NYC.

Marc Parsons is the lead singer and guitarist of He's Not Here. A longtime DC choral singer, acoustic guitar player and occasional percussionist, Marc finally added electric guitars and pedals to the mix a few years ago, before finding a home in He's Not Here. He is an architect by day, and a home studio enthusiast and composer by night. A lifelong lover of music and child of the 80’s; progressive rock, electronica, new wave, trip hop, jazz, film score and more continue to inspire and influence his playing.
