Biography


"GRAB YOUR FAVORITE SHOTGUN RIDER AND MARVEL AT THE MYRIAD WAYS THAT FOUR DOORS CAN ROCK."
-- Elizabeth Thompson, Village Voice

"IT'S AS IF THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF MUSIC HAS BEEN REWRITTEN FROM SCRATCH."
-- Tullio DeSantis, Reading Eagle

"THE CAR MUSIC PROJECT IS A GREAT DEAL MORE THAN A NOVELTY GROUP ... BASICALLY, IT's A FREE JAZZ OUTFIT THAT MANAGES TO GET AN ENTIRELY MUSICAL SOUND OUT OF ITS UNUSUAL INSTRUMENTS ... "
-- Lancaster Online

"...A FUSION OF JAZZ AND CLASSICAL SOUNDS THAT ARE ASSEMBLED (MUCH LIKE THE PARTS OF A CAR) TO CREATE A UNIQUE, EERILY ABSORBING WHOLE."
-- Nik Berg, London's Daily Telegraph

Every show leads you down a road you've never travelled before.
