Dazzle is proud to present the CD release of a new recording of all original music composed by Dave Devine featuring Paul McDaniel and Matt Mayhall.
Hailed as “Denver’s Guitar Guru” by Westword magazine, guitarist, composer, and educator Dave Devine is known throughout the Denver jazz and rock scene for his virtuosity as a performer, his versatility as an artist, and his keen ability to connect with and inspire his students. With a background in classical guitar performance and a deep abiding love for guitar pedals, his sound is one of dense melodic layers, ambient washes, and lush sonic landscapes.
Paul McDaniel has been one of the premier bass guitarists in the Colorado area for 20 years. His versatility, deep groove, and creative edge keep him in high demand with a wide range of ensembles and composers.
Matt Mayhall is a drummer, composer, session musician, and educator in Los Angeles. He works with the Jeff Parker Quartet and Chris Speed Trio, and most recently with singer-songwriter Aimee Mann in support of her Grammy award-winning 2017 album Mental Illness.
This trio blends rock, ambient noise, experimental and psychedelic textures into complex yet approachable instrumental songs. Effect-heavy guitars, layered synths, and driving bass and drums create a melodic landscape over unexpected harmonies and shifting meters.
