Album Notes
Spuyten Duyvil is an eight-piece band from the Hudson Valley whose original alt roots sound wanders the last 100 years of American music, conjuring embittered Civil War veterans, recalcitrant small town bawds, suicidal bureaucrats, star crossed lovers and brave hearted fools navigating the mysteries of daily life. Their foot stompin’, barn burning, rabble rousing live shows have earned them main stage appearances at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and Caramoor’s American Roots Music Festival.

New Amsterdam, their first full length CD, features a mix of original and cleverly recycled traditional songs that will move you, physically and spiritually. It's a barn burning tent revival touched by the Chicago blues, steeped in the soul of New Orleans, transported through Appalachia, thrown down in a Bluegrass session, and informed by the history of old New York.

Advance Praise for New Amsterdam

"Spuyten Duyvil's songs draw on the roots of American music and history, but in the hands of eight superb performers they crackle with energy that's both contemporary and downright irresistible."
John Platt Dir. of Communications & Special Projects "Sunday Breakfast" host WFUV Radio

"With "New Amsterdam", Spuyten Duyvil delivers a wonderfully boisterous collection of songs that define what "roots" music should sound like. Spuyten Duyvil roll like an old time tent show, but instead of selling worthless snake oil, they deliver a package of gems, well crafted tunes and stories that are pure fun to listen to."
Ron Olesko WFDU Traditions Host

“ ….Wow… from the opening notes on New Amsterdam, the energy, the excitement, and the pure joy of playing and singing together is palpable. Spuyten Duyvil is more than a band, its a community. Like builders of community. Infectious and fun- inviting us in to sing, dance, and celebrate. I’ m basking in their musical glow.”
Joe Crookston Songwriter/Performing Artist

“From the first note Spuyten Duyvil grabs your attention, drawing you in with their joyful, uplifting and spirited music. This is contemporary old time music at its best played with heart, soul and sass.”
Maggi Landau, Producer, Caramoor American Roots Music Festival

"I can't remember when I enjoyed an evening of music more than at the WFUV Living Room show watching Spuyten Duyvil. The group possesses an incredible musical energy that was immediately infectious to everyone. It was like getting your favorite friends together to play and they all happened to be really great musicians!"
Tina Shafer Artistic Director of SongCircleMusic (songwriting credits include Celine Dion, Phoebe Snow, and Donna Summer)

"This group is terrific! High energy and original approaches to their own songs and traditional tunes."
Wanda Adams Fischer, The Hudson River Sampler, WAMC, Albany NY

Praise for Spuyten Duyvil's 2009 EP: In Spite Of The Devil

"Your album (In Spite of The Devil) is one of the freshest I've heard this year and I feel you deserve to be heard by audiences across the country"
Ron Olesko - Producer/Host WFDU-FM's Traditions

"Spuyten Duyvil, a band from just outside the environs of New York City (Yonkers to be exact) .. has just self-released a debut CD that's among the finer roots-based collections I've heard all year--on any label." ...
Billy Altman, The Bluegrass Special
