Shayna Dulberger’s Quartet digs deep into the heart of 1960s Jazz, Post Punk and Extended Technique Improvisation. Her new compositions are creatively modern-sounding with rowdy as well as tender moments. Ache & Flutter (May 2013), her latest Quartet release, has received rave reviews and has been featured on radio stations including WFMU, VPR, and WCSB. Ache & Flutter has been nominated Best Bass Album by Gapplegate Guitar and Bass Blog and Best Record of 2013 by 21st Century Improvised Music on the New York Scene. Dulberger’s Quartet was formed in 2011 in New York City and has performed throughout the East Coast and the Midwest.
