Hailing from the Hudson Valley, Spuyten Duyvil’s (pronounced: “Spite + n Dive + l”) soaring vocals, traditional jug band energy, blistering slide guitar and Chicago-style blues harp propel the listener on a barn-burning romp through the last 100 years of American Roots music. Listening to this joyous five piece band for the first time is like throwing a cherry bomb into a lake. It wakes you up.
Their 2011 release, “New Amsterdam” was a DJ favorite receiving enthusiastic airplay on over 165 stations in 5 countries and a “Top American Roots Album 2011” nomination from The Alternate Root TV. The band highly anticipated follow up, “Temptation” has been eagerly embraced by radio, receiving play on 30 stations across three continents in its first two weeks out.
Stops on the journey that began on a front porch with a Bouzouki and a copy of “Rise Up Singing” include the Philadelphia Folk Festival, Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival, The Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Caramoor’s American Roots Music Festival, Mad. Sq. Park, Levitt Pavilion Steelstacks, Bethel Woods Center for the Performing Arts and Musikfest. According to legendary WXPN Folk DJ, Gene Shay, “They are the hottest new band in folk music … and one of the best”.
“They’re a mighty seven-piece powerhouse…Lead vocals are handled with guts and power by Beth Kaufman, who has a clear, gospel-tinged voice…Miller’s songwriting is fantastic, too, channeling straight honky-tonk country one minute and drug-addled mystical blues the next…All the playing is hot.” – Stephen D. Winick, The Huffington Post
