I have been EXTREMELY fortunate to have played guitar on a run of shows last week with David Byrne, among many other incredible musicians. He writes about his experience performing the music of William Onyeabor, and I get a mention and photo bomb from none other than David Byrne!!!
Read about his experience here!
After months and months of extremely hard work, we played our first and maybe last run of US shows, as the Atomic Band featuring David Byrne, Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Dev Hynes (Blood Orange), Luke Jenner (The Rapture), Kele Okereke (Bloc Party), Joshua Redman, Money Mark, The Lijadu sisters, and Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsytem, Museum of Love).
Our shows in the UK with Damon Albarn were amazing and this run of shows in the US were no different. Here is a review in the NY Times by writer Ben Ratliff, whose work i have greatly appreciated through the years!
