Devendra Banhart and longtime friend, musical collaborator, and fellow singer-songwriter Andy Cabic (Vetiver) – who together formed the vanguard of an experimental and folk-influenced aesthetic that emerged in the Bay Area around the turn of the millennium—will tour California in October 2014, performing both individually and together in a casual mix of older and newer material, including Banhart’s 2013 Nonesuch Records debut album, Mala.
Beginning his career as a solo artist and a member of The Pleased alongside Joanna Newsom, record producer, engineer, mixer, and musician Noah Georgeson is perhaps best known for his extensive work with Devendra Banhart. Georgeson has produced four of Banhart’s albums, including co-writing a number of the songs, and he frequently tours as a member of his band. Banhart’s 2013 album Mala, produced by Georgeson, reached #2 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.
Georgeson’s production credits also include the self-titled album from super group Little Joy, the collaboration of Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti, Los Hermanos’ Rodrigo Amarante, and Binki Shapiro, as well as Bert Jansch’s The Black Swan (Drag City). Georgeson went on to work with Moretti again in 2011, mixing the Strokes’ Angles (RCA). Recently, he produced the debut album from The Treetop Flyers, The Mountain Moves (Partisan), co-produced and mixed Cate Le Bon’s “Mug Museum”, mixed English singer & songwriter Lou Rhodes’ forthcoming album and produced and mixed the forthcoming EP from Adam Green.
Georgeson is currently producing, engineering and mixing the debut album for UK artist Flo Morrisey (Glassnote), and recently finished Rodrigo Amarante’s Cavalo (Easy Sound/Vanguard) slated for US release May 6th 2014.
