Deveykus in SPIN Top 20 + year end report

Hi all,

Happy to report Deveykus got some cred in SPIN this year, making the top 20 in their Best Avant Garde albums of 2013...


I'm also happy to announce the completion of my first solo electronic album Guided Motion which was mixed and mastered just a few weeks ago. It will hopefully be released some time next year on New Atlantis once the details get figured out. I had published an early version of one of the pieces on soundcloud back in July, though it took the rest of the summer and fall to complete the recording.

After a successful tour in November, Zevious will continue to play shows in NYC and the NE corridor going into 2014 to support the release of Passing through the Wall. We're already hard at work on new material.

Many Arms has a big announcement coming up and a US tour scheduled for June with saxophonist Colin Fisher.

A collaboration with DJ/keyboardist Jason Carr is well underway and we should have an album completed by early next year.

After an unintentionally long break, I've also begun composing the next JDbQ album, which will feature a quintet of the usual cast of characters from NYC and Philly. I'm hoping to get in the studio sometime next spring to record another full length album and play some shows.

that's all for now,
happy holidaze!
