Welcome to the new site!
For a long time we have wanted to have a single website for all of our musical projects. This site is like 4 sites in one and there's a lot to look at and listen to. Drop us a line and let us know what you think. Many thanks to Stacie Hampton at LIQUIDNOISE for her awesome web design and programming work.
December 2, 2013 - End of Year
It's hard to believe 2013 is almost over. In November we had a great Epiphany Project tour. Thanks to everyone who came to the shows and to the venues. A highlight was in France at Le Zoom where we played music live to a short film by our friend Hayk Sayadian.
November 6, 2013 - In the Studio
Between shows. We're in the studio this week recording some never before recorded songs of Epiphany Project and putting final touches on the new Bet Williams CD due out in early 2014. On Sunday we head to Bayreuth area! Bet's birthday is coming up 11/11!
October 30, 2013 - On Tour
Epiphany Project is now officially on tour. We played 2 great shows last week. Thanks Erfurt and Schweina. Now we're heading over to Chemnitz today, then up north to Neumünster, Hildesheim and Billerbeck over the weekend. Stopped in Berlin briefly to carve some spooky pumpkins and wander the streets as zombies!
October 15, 2013 - Getting ready
We're getting ready for some great stuff coming up. Epiphany Project will be on tour with the fabulous Mal Stein from New York starting October 25 with shows in Germany and France. Check out the calendar.
AND we're booking a special tour in April 2014 called the Bet Williams Family Circus Tour in which we travel across America and play house concerts along the way. From New York to California. Sounds like a cool Home Movie, huh?
October 8, 2013 - Back from Armenia
It was an amazing trip to Armenia. We traveled through the beautiful mountainous countryside almost to the border of Iran. Lots of great plans made for the future! Now we're returning to the studio to finish Bet's CD "The 11th Hour". We just recorded a fantastic string quartet and the whole thing is coming together. Samples soon. A few shows coming up. Check the tours page.
September 16, 2013 – Back in Berlin
The shows were a blast with Kenny and Marc and now we're back in the studio working on Bet's new CD. John's getting the parts ready for the string quartet coming in next week. This weekend Bet's playing a few solo shows in Köln and Celle. Check out TOURS for more info. Heading to Armenia at the end of the month!
September 8, 2013 – On the Road
We have a lot going on right now. This week (September 8th—16th) we are taking a break from working on Bet’s new record to play a handful of shows with Bet Williams Band. We’re really looking forward to these shows as we are playing with our new drummer, Kenny Martin, from the legendary band DEFUNKT.
Then we are off to Armenia for some more recording of Nagash Ensemble. We are also getting ready to announce the Epiphany Project Fall Tour. This tour will take us all over Germany and we have added a handful of dates in France as well.
