Located in a rural town in the northernmost parts of Ontario, Marty Midgard is the musical mastermind behind The Midgard Project. He graduated, with honours, from Carleton University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music and a Minor in History. Inspired by Norse mythology, the cold abyss of northern Canada, and creating impactful sonic experiences, his compositions showcase a unique blend of progressive metal with a theatrical twist. In addition to creating each arrangement, Marty also takes the role as lead guitarist. Music of the Spheres, his debut album (2016), featured Dennis Dumphy on drums and Rob Lundgren on vocals.

Dennis Dumphy is a self-taught musician from Sioux Lookout, ON that started drumming at the age of 13. In 2006, he attended the Mid-Ocean School of Media Arts for music recording and live sound. He then traveled to San Diego in 2007 to study with drummer/composer Marco Minnemann, and has also collaborated with Derek Roddy. In 2008-2009, he placed 2nd in the Canada-wide "Mapex Drumheroes" competition. In addition to providing percussion for commercial and radio productions, Dennis has performed, recorded and/or consulted with a wide variety of artists.
Amongst the collection of guitars, The Midgard Project composes each song primarily out of Marty's home studio, the Wolf Den. From writing to recording, virtually everything can be done from the comfort of Marty’s home.
