JAMBANDS.COM quotes for FEED THE METER's "Violation" CD

ON THE BAND:
"Whether it is jazz, swing, funk, reggae, or that ticklish spot of ineffable bliss, all of the music here is not only genre bouncing, but done so with amazing style, panache and realism...it's not just playing several genres, but that those genres are pushed to their elastic limits. At times the end result of this type of battle is the creation of a neoteric category that a band like Feed the Meter can call home."

ON THE GUITAR:
"...a schizophrenic who has picked up a guitar and begun playing music." "...about a dozen things that are positively unexplainable, creating a modern version of Are You Experienced?."

ON THE VOCALS:
"His phrasings, and vocal style has this Chet Baker My Funny Valentine sentiment....James Brown styled... Louis Armstrong influenced vocal... a Red Hot Chili Peppers type chorus... sounds like a Diana Krall... rock/hip-hop/make-Kid Rock-jealous..."

ON THE TUNES:
"I have never heard a piece of music cross into so many boundaries and deprecate every established parameter..." "...This album is the music critic's nightmare because it isn't just eclectic... ...no song gives the listener sure footing to make an accurate analysis. There is always another measure to come, another chord change and another genre of music dying to get out...words are incapable of expressing the art.."
-----------------

FEED THE METER is currently mixing a brand new CD. This CD explores eclecticism through a "singer-songwriter" construct and should be out some time in mid 2004 on Water Street Music.... Wahoooeee!
