The 2nd Autograph is by Howard Leese. He is an American guitarist, record producer and musical director who played with Heart for 22 years (1975–1997). Howard received his inspiration for the guitar during the 1960s after seeing Dick Dale, the guitarist in the surf band "the Del-Tones." Leese had his first recording contract with Ed Cobb’s Sunburst label at the age of 15, with the band The Zoo. It was at Mushroom Studios in 1974 that Leese helped produce a demo for Heart. The next year, Mushroom Records signed Heart and released the group's first album Dreamboat Annie. Leese was assistant producer on the album, and was asked to join the band later that year. He stayed with the band until 1997. Leese was Heart's guitarist, backing vocalist, keyboard player and song arranger. In 1998 he joined the The Paul Rodgers Band. He continues to tour with The Paul Rodgers Band and Bad Company.
The 3rd Autograph is by Robert Gray. With influences that lean towards the feel-good easy-listening music of the 1970s, Gray's style shows a reverence for classic and timeless songwriters like George Harrison and Roy Orbison in his melodies, sung with a smooth, warm voice reminiscent of David Gates (Bread) or James Taylor. His songs take you back to a less complicated time when lyrics were straight-forward and instrumentation was uncluttered to show off a good melody. His music is played on Radio stations all over Canada and the United States, many have added tracks from Gray's upbeat rock/pop discs. His songs also caught the attention of Pam Rossi at 94.7 FM in Detroit, who invited him to perform live on her prestigious morning show "Overeasy."
The 4th Autograph is by Nils Lofgren. He is an American rock music recording artist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. Along with his work as a solo artist, he has marked over 25 years as a member of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band as well as a former member of Crazy Horse and Grin. Lofgren's first instrument was classical accordion, beginning at age 5, which he studied seriously for ten years. After studying classical music and jazz, throughout his youth, Lofgren switched his emphasis to rock music, and focused on the piano and the guitar. During this time, Lofgren met Neil Young and played for him. Young invited Lofgren to come to California. Lofgren joined Neil Young's band at age 17, playing piano and guitar on the album After the Gold Rush. Young gave him this role despite his having virtually no experience on the instrument; Lofgren worked on his parts around-the-clock when recording was not in session. Lofgren has since maintained a close musical relationship with Young.
