Nigel

SG-040 - self-titled 12-song CD

Having met in Kalamazoo whle attending Western Michigan University, Damon Ari-shea (piano, vocals) and Bebe (guitar, vocals) played together in offbeat, experimental outfits. After college, Damon moved to Denver and shortly thereafter Bebe followed suit.

While Nigel began with the duo working with a drum machine, the sound changed drastically when Trent Josten (drums) joined the guys in Denver. Soon after Jeff Mann was recruited to play bass, the quartet realized they had become a recording and touring tour de force.

Keith discovered the band after hearing the 'Baby Boy' b/w 'Sunny Weather' 7" on The Soviet label. The album was recorded and mixed by Tim Isler at Soma EMS and Acme Studios in May and August of 2002. It was sequenced by Park Peters at Audio Park and mastered by John Golden.
