A preview feature for Brooklyn Rider's Spoleto Festival debut last week hailed the rock band string quartet as "the musicians of the moment."  Charleston's Post & Courier continued, "They have performed in Texas at the trendy film and music festival South by Southwest, played at New York City's laid-back club Joe's Pub, and stopped by NPR to record a Tiny Desk Concert for Bob Boilen's 'All Songs Considered.' Their latest album, Dominant Curve, even received a positive review from Pitchfork, the hard-to-please indie music website."  Also, in late May, the musicians were in Italy for the world premiere of 'Graffiti dell'amante' by Rome Prize awardee Lisa Bielawa, as well as a performance of her 'Chance Encounter' along the banks of the Tiber River.
