New single, "The Warmth Of Other Suns" 1-16-2017 - available here as a free download

Borrowing novelist Richard Wright's phrase for a title and paying homage to Isabel Wilkerson's (http://isabelwilkerson.com/) thought provoking, timely and moving book of the same name, we are thrilled to release our new single, "The Warmth Of Other Suns". In these unsettled times, we offer this song in support of all who struggle for freedom and equality in America.

"The Social Music Hour Vol. 1" nominated for The Intentional Folk Music Awards Album Of The Year - Jan 2016

“These immensely talented, well-schooled musicians deserve to be heard far and wide – they restoreth thy soul.” - Elmore Magazine

"Raucous Roots..." - The New York Times

Seeing a Spuyten Duyvil (pronounced "SPITE-en DIE+vul") show for the first time is like "throwing a cherry bomb into a lake" (Rich Warren, WFMT). It wakes you up. Their brand of original and traditional American Roots music blends Olde Time, Blues, 2nd Line, Bluegrass, and Folk Rock with a pinch of Punk Rock energy to create a uniquely modern mix. Lead by song-writing couple, Mark Miller and Beth Kaufman, this six piece powerhouse brings barn burning energy to venues throughout the East Coast and Midwest. Drop them on a large festival stage and they electrify the crowd. Place them in a listening room and their stripped down acoustic sets connect powerfully.

“This is as close to a musical "Come to Jesus" moment as you'll get outside the gospel roots of the deep south. Yonkers, NY based Spuyten Duyvil are the real deal when it comes to roots revivalist Americana music. Historians, outstanding songwriters, accomplished musicians and a musical family atmosphere converge to make some of the most outstanding music around today.” - William Hurley - The Alternate Root TV

Riding high on their International Folk Music Awards Album Of The Year nomination, 2016 was a year of great adventures for Spuyten Duyvil.

Their American Embassy backed tour of Israel featured two headlining sets at the Jacob's Ladder Festival on the Sea of Galilee. US dates found the band playing intimate acoustic house concerts, rockin' electric sets on big festival stages and every kind of place in between. In addition to many return engagements (Philly Folk Fest, Caramoor's ARMF, New Bedford FF), they debuted headlining the South Florida Folk Festival, in Vermont at Roots On The River and shared the main stage of Long Island's Great South Bay Music Festival with Blues Traveler. Past venues of note include Citi Field, The Krannart Center For The Performing Arts, Levitt Pavilions Steel Stacks, Musikfest, Clearwater, and the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival.

"… the band's arrangements, energy, and attitude always amaze me …big sound, big drama, big groove…" - The Huffington Post

In showcasing the music of Mississippi John Hurt, Elizabeth Cotten, Woody Guthrie and Big Bill Broonzy here and abroad, the album's title has become a guiding philosophy. "Social Music" represents Spuyten Duyvil's commitment to sharing stages, engaging creatively with friends and strangers and taking tradition off the pedestal into the here and now. Reinventing traditional songs, they honor the folk process and transform the audience from listeners to participants and owners.

In addition to the IFMA nomination, "The Social Music Hour Vol. 1" has received a lot of love on the radio with airplay on over 250 stations worldwide including rotation on SiriusXM's The Village, #4 Album, the #8 Artist and #7 of the Top 100 songs on the 2015 Annual International Folk DJ Airplay Chart, #2 album on Airplay Directs' monthly AAA chart, #2 on The Roots Music Report's Traditional Folk Chart with #1 and #2 Songs on May's Roots Music Report's Contemporary Folk Chart.

"Infused in blues and smoked with folk…. This album is an Americana treasure chest." - Easy Ed, No Depression

Their 2013 CD, “Temptation” made it to #7 on the Folk DJ Chart in it's first full month out. "I'll Fly Away" grabbed the #2 song spot. "Temptation" also made it to the top #20 on the Roots Music Report and into the top #30 on the Roots 66 Airplay Chart. Their 2011 release "New Amsterdam" landed on a dozen DJ Top 10 lists and received a nomination for the Alternate Root TV's "2011 Top American Roots Album".

“Spuyten Duyvil are that rare breed of band that can cover songs written long before their grandparents were born, and reinterpret them so that an audience will swear on a stack of Rolling Stones that they are new. And in essence, isn’t that really what the folk music tradition has always been about? - Motifri.com

"To me they are the hottest new band in folk music ... and one of the best" - Legendary DJ Gene Shay, WXPN
