Red Cedar Custom

I'm happy to say that I've found the nicest guitar I could ever ask for. Creston Lea from Creston Guitars built me a custom Telecaster-style guitar out of a really great looking piece of cedar.

Here's what Creston says:

"Nick Millevoi's guitar: western red cedar body that began its vocational life as a stave in a locomotive water tank on the trans-American railroad, circa late-1860s. In 1902, made redundant by a change in locomotive efficiency, it was torn down and recoopered into a pickle vat stave at a Fort Collins, CO pickle operation. In 1992, it was torn down again and sat dormant, air drying in the Rocky Mountains, until 2014 when it found itself assembled into this guitar. "

After playing the same guitar for most of the past 17 years, I had some worries that I would never love another guitar the same way, but after a couple of weeks with my new Creston, I'm not worried!

Here it is:

Creston makes a page for all of the guitars he builds, and none of them are the same, so check out my guitar from every angle and then cruise around on his site for the most glamorous photos of the raddest Tele (and Jazzmaster, Mustang, and a few Strat) -style guitars on the internet.

New releases, new press

Numbers on the Side has been officially released. It's now available on my Bandcamp page as a download and on CD.

Check it out here: http://nickmillevoi.bandcamp.com/album/numbers-on-the-side

I've gotten some more really nice press attention:


Burning Ambulance reviewed and previewed a track from the album: http://burningambulance.com/2014/04/11/nick-millevoi-2/ (BA is currently being re-amped, so the link is dead)

WXPN's The Key: http://thekey.xpn.org/2014/04/20/nick-millevoi-set-to-release-new-record-numbers-on-the-side-this-month/

I gave an interview to Jump Philly: http://jumpphilly.com/2014/04/24/nick-millevoi-the-rotunda-album/

And Brad Cohan called me a "guitarorrist" in this Village Voice preview for the last show of my tour: http://blogs.villagevoice.com/music/2014/04/the_10_best_con.php



Suspended Definition, the new Many Arms album on Tzadik, has also been officially released. Brooklyn Vegan is running an album stream right now!

Town Hall, NOTS cover, Bandcamp, Skype lessons


 Last week, I played with Many Arms on the Masada Book Three premiere concert at New York's Town Hall and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. 20 sets of such amazing music! Thanks to Jon Madof of Zion80 for the photo!

In a few weeks, my new album, Numbers on the Side, will be released on Ivory Antler Records. This recording, which I made last July in the sanctuary at Philadelphia's Rotunda, will be released physically as a split CD with Onibaba. Here's the cover:



I made a Bandcamp page (where you'll be able to get Numbers on the Side soon!). The first couple of releases are up now at http://nickmillevoi.bandcamp.com.

I've started offering Skype/GoogleVideo lessons and they've been going really well. Please get in touch if you're interested!
