Rivers on Mars

After venturing into the funky, compositional territory of my band Big Picture Holiday and our debut album, Shimmer and Melt, I was ready to try a more abstract approach to live performance. With a nod to the work of Sun-Ra, P-Funk, Ornette Coleman's Primetime, and Miles Davis' Bitches Brew, I wanted to present electric, groove-based music in a riskier, live improvisation setting. In the spring of 2016, I began calling on several of my incredibly talented friends from the NY scene and created the band Rivers on Mars. We've been playing together steadily ever since and now I'm happy to report..................

The debut Rivers on Mars album is finally available!!!
