Lisa (the vocalist) is the face and epic voice of Weak of Wanting. Though she looks sweet and innocent she is known for her powerful vocal range and haunting timbre. She spent a lot of her early singing career in punk bands and since leaving them, has spent many years training and refining her vocal style which is now unique and beautiful. Her writing style is almost sub conscious and is on a very emotional level but despite this she is a very professional musician and remains humble about her looks and rising fame, she speaks directly to her fans all the time and feels very strongly that the band should take the time to thank people for the support whenever they can
Ben (guitarist) has spent almost as long being a sound engineer as he has playing the guitar and spends a great deal of time considering the shaping of the bands overall sound. His original idea was to try and create a lot of dynamic and ambient changes to suit Lisa’s voice and showcase his own abilities, knowing they only had two instruments he filled there mixes with a mixture of contrasting mixture heavy overdubs and minimalism to create the dynamic shifts he wanted as well as a combination of drone notes and open voiced chords to add harmonic interest
