ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Good evening. As there is the distinct possibility that you are absolutely unfamiliar with me and have arrived by accident whilst searching for medical advice, I will try, as succinctly as possible, to explain things. If this is of no interest whatsoever, skip to the gigs or the hemorrhoids page or something. Absolutely no offence will be taken. I won't even know unless you tell me.
For anybody (and I gather there were a few) who has sailed in here looking for Geist, they haven't really existed for 10 years now, but we've recently reconvened in all but name and new music will be released from November 2016.
If you were misguided enough to come here looking for Jon McDevitt, you've found me and I'll try to be brief. I'm no longer staring at my forties from the preferred direction and I play music full time, whether it be at pubs, parties, or in homes and centres for the elderly, people with disabilities, dementia etc. There's so much more to say about the latter, but for the sake of saving space I'll just say that it's something I'm very grateful to have fallen into. I also write and record a lot of music and have provided for various small films and projects over the years, as well as one television programme, Channel 5's 'A Different Life'.
I'm now involved in producing a 2016 Christmas single, a children's song - the theme for Prime8, an educational eco-adventure game and website being launched in January 2017 and an album and further single to be released later in the year.
Aside from all this, I graduated from Harvard in 1984 and, following a brief spell as an acrobat in Beruit, I became a famous dog trainer in the early nineties. I also invented the shoe (awaiting patent) in 1996 and like to read in my spare time.
