Nick Millevoi

Nick Millevoi is a guitarist and composer whose music searches for the sonic cracks between jazz, rock and roll, noise, and modern composition. An intrepid composer, Millevoi confronts everything from maximal electric power trio music to chamber music to large scale improvisation heavy ensemble pieces, and everything in between. With his band, Desertion Trio, featuring bassist Johnny DeBlase and drummer Kevin Shea, Millevoi approaches the many styles of American electric guitar music from an avant garde angle. He also co-leads Hollen-voi, with guitarist Matt Hollenberg, formed to perform new compositions by composer John Zorn. Nick was a member of the collective power trio Many Arms, releasing five full-length records, including two for John Zorn’s Tzadik label, played guitar in the Hassidic-based doom metal band Deveykus (Tzadik), and was a member of Chris Forsyth & the Solar Motel Band, contributing to the band’s critically acclaimed The Rarity of Experience (No Quarter)
