Mid-summer update

It's been a busy summer and I've got lots of exciting stuff going on. Since my last post, I've been on tour around the Midwest with Many Arms, had the new Haitian Rail record released, and played the first shows with Form and Mess.

Here's a summary of all the excitement:

 I was featured on Miguel Copon's great blog, Prepared Guitar, which features a pretty serious collection of everything I've done: http://preparedguitar.blogspot.com/2014/07/nick-millevoi-13-questions.htmlI'm now a featured artist of Augustine strings, which I've been using on my Creston Telecaster: http://albertaugustine.com/artist/nickmillevoi.html

Haitian Rail (Edward Ricart, Dan Blacksberg, Kevin Shea, and myself) released our album, Solarists, in July. Burning Ambulance premiered our video, directed by Dylan Pecora, over here in advance of the release: http://burningambulance.com/2014/07/23/haitian-rail/

Here's the video (full screen viewing recommended!):

We also received pretty great reviews from:

More news is on the way, including the release of the Form and Mess record, which will be out on Sick Room Records at the end of August.

I'll be playing with Brandon Lopez in Philly on August 23 at Kung Fu Necktie with Dama/Libra, USCO, and Air is Human, and then on August 30 with a free jazz party band I put together called BUGOUT! at Pageant Soloveev on a bill with Bill Nace/Steve Baczkowski.

Fall dates will be posted soon!
