DUO with sandy ewen

Sandy Ewen - amplified guitar

Phillip Greenlief - tenor saxophone

the duo with sandy ewen gives me a chance to extend my sound palate and work in the long form tradition of free improvisation. 


Sandy Ewen is an experimental guitarist, artist and architect who has recently relocated to NYC from Houston, TX. She has two new duo albums, one with percussionist Weasel Walter and the other with guitarist Chase Gardner on Marginal Frequencies. She has an upcoming solo LP on Gilgongo Records, and a forthcoming Astral Spirits cassette with percussionist Lisa Cameron. She has performed extensively in 2018, including at the Sant'anna Arresi Jazz Festival, Experimental Sound Studio Option Series and the High Zero Festival. Sandy spent much of 2017 performing solo sets and in collaboration with Steve Jansen (tapes and electronics) and Maria Chavez (turntables) around Europe. Her other current projects include the trio Etched in the Eye, a duo with Tom Carter called Spiderwebs, the trio Garden medium, and ongoing collaborations with percussionist Weasel Walter and bassist Damon Smith. In years past, Ewen has performed alongside Roscoe Mitchell, Keith Rowe, Lydia Lunch and many others, and has performed and recorded with Jaap Blonk, Henry Kaiser and more. In 2014 she performed at San Francisco's 13th Annual Outsound New Music Summit, and she has made several appearances at Austin's annual No Idea Festival. Ewen's approach to playing is centered around found objects and extended guitar techniques.
