Nick Millevoi / Brian Osborne
Nick Millevoi / Brian Osborne
Nick Millevoi is a guitarist from Philadelphia. In June 2011, Nick's first solo guitar album, Black Figure of a Bird, will be released by DC's New Atlantis Records and Sunmagi Records as the first of a series of three premier collaborative releases which also includes a release by Peter Brotzmann and Han Bennink, and Jason Ajemian. Black Figure of a Bird consists of a series of alternately tuned pieces written for the twelve string electric guitar, masterfully recorded by Philadelphia-based guitarist and engineer, Eric Carbonara. Of Black Figure of a Bird, Brian Rademaekers of Philly.com recently wrote: "His latest effort is a solo record of 12-string guitar compositions, one that bends the perceived limits of the instrument into some twisted places using open tunings and a passionate attack on the frets."

Nick is co-leader of the avant-garde punk-jazz trio Many Arms (Engine Records, Majmua Music), and the new music duo Archer Spade, with Dan Blacksberg. Nick is also a member of progressive chamber-pop collective Make A Rising and Hassidic punk band Electric Simcha. As a sideman, Nick has toured with Discord Records recording artist Joe Lally, and performed with Gene Coleman, Glenn Branca, and many others. Nick composes regularly for his groups and has also composed a series of six improvisation-based pieces called SHREDfest for various instrumentations, one of which was released by Tiger Asylum Records.

Of his work with Many Arms, writer Phil Freeman recently wrote in Burning Ambulance: "Guitarist Nick Millevoi takes Greg Ginn's misshapen, barbed-wire soloing style as a starting point and injects doses of Derek Bailey, Sonny Sharrock and Mick Barr (Orthrelm, Octis, Krallice) for good measure. He's a fierce player who knows his way around a riff and can tie himself, and the listener, in knots with his contorted, passionate soloing
Mako Sica
Mako Sica
"Mako Sica make music in the vein of Amon Duul, Hex-era Earth and the out there reaches of the Impulse Records catalog with guitars, drums and an utterly primal vocalist that conjures moods with an exceptional grace, utilizing a group-mind aesthetic and an uncanny use of negative space that charms the listener in to be a part of the music." - Permanent Records
