ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A classically trained cellist and native Philadelphian with influences ranging from Bach to Radiohead, DeJesus began writing at the age of 14, experimenting with the guitar and piano with the belief that those were the only instruments a true modern song writer would use.

Not until hearing the band 'Rasputina' and the Austrian cello quartet 'Apoctalyptica', did he finally decide to shed his misconceptions, and begin writing for the cello and voice. It was a new sound, a sound that was his, and it felt natural.

While attending the University of the Arts to study Illustration, DeJesus continued writing, but kept it a secret from friends and family. He also performed with artists such as KD Lang and Patti LaBelle, as well as writing string arrangments for local artists like Natalie Walker for her Daughter Darling Project.

After mustering up some serious courage, Dejesus began performing some of his own material, and was amazed at the reactions. Following the suggestions of a few friends, he recorded some of his music, and put together a small homemade marketing package, truly believing his music was something worth sharing, and sent it out to local recording companies.

It eventually hit the ears of Ted Richardson (Hunkpapa, Ultrahuman, and The Acoustic Alternative) of Noisia Records, which spawned a collaboration that has created an eclectic, but highly approachable sound to add to the cello and rock repertoire.

The cello is a rock instrument!
I know other artists have explored rock music centered around the cello (Rasputina comes to mind), but I've never found any as compelling as DeJesus. It's probably because the cello (or any "non-rock" instrument) is often a gimmick to make ordinary songs special by forcing them out of their element. On Subconscious, the songs and the instrumentation are meant for each other, fitting into a cohesive whole.

Many cellists have done pop rock, but nothing like this!
I am always interested in eccentric acts and string music. this guy was introduced to me by a friend and i was totally taken away by this album. I already listened to a few other musicians who are cellists playing rock and singing but nothing like this. The music has so much energy and originality. it satisfies my eccentric tastes but also has the capacity to be something i could hear on mainstream radio. this is a hidden treasure that makes shopping at CD baby so exiting.
