Novice Theory Getting UK Love

Novice Theory accordian center stage

I met Geo Wyeth (Novice Theory) at a party and was impressed by his intelligence and articulate description of his music that I made it a point to go to the Trash Bar in Brooklyn to see him. I was overwhelmed and moved and wrote a review entitled "Novice Theory Extraordinary Emerging Talent". I believe that was his first review. A few months later he did a headlining sold out show at Joe’s Pub and I wrote this review "Novice Theory, The Magic of Delivery".

Here in the states we don’t have DJ’s on the radio with their finger on the pulse of music. We do have barometers of taste at Public Radio, emerging Internet sites like Daytrotter and many dedicated Bloggers giving great music exposure regardless of label status. There are no nationally televised outlets like Later With Jools Holland devoted to creating a well-produced segment for the newcomer. I’ll never forget Willy Mason's debut. And now this incredible debut of Novice Theory.

All the musicians I have featured, have been very well received in the UK. The most ravenous example being Willy Mason. Langhorne Slim and o’death have been well received as well. I am grateful to those fans and say thank you.

Novice Theory's Debut on Later With Jools Holland


At Obsession Collection Music we have written about many under the radar artists. What has been satisfying is witnessing their exposure spread around. Novice Theory’s talent is ready for the exposure.

Here are a few of Obsession Collection Music's most recent UK connections. Drink Up Buttercup 7" Single coming 11.10.08 on Make Mine. Another cool connection is Peasant, whose song “Raise Today” was featured the TV show “Bones" (premier UK episode). I'm very proud of this association to UK native Alex Newport engineer extraordinaire. read.
