BIO

Negative Press Project (NPP) is a self described jazz and indie/art rock influenced music collective based out of Oakland, CA.  “Versatility abounds, and they always look for new ground to explore," says The Bay Bridged.

Co-led by Ruthie Dineen (Piano/Keys) and Andrew Lion (Electric and Double Bass), the group is a composer's culmination of a converted rock bassist and classically trained pianist to jazz inspired creative music.  The leaders' writing is represented on 2015's Full-Length recording, ‘see evil eyes | civilize’ with ten original songs and arrangements split almost equally amongst the two.

The additional voices of Tony Peebles (Tenor Sax), Rafa Postel (Trumpet), Chris Sullivan (Alto Sax), Lyle Link (Alto & Tenor Sax), Luis Salcedo (Guitar), and Isaac Schwartz (Drums), imprint the music with virtuosity and diverse experiences and backgrounds.

Now, the leaders take on the music of Jeff Buckley- the subject of a significant Gen X voice taken too soon.  This yielded an all new full-length studio recording tracked at the legendary Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, Produced by Jeff Denson and Negative Press Project, for NPP’s 2017 celebration of Buckley with ‘Eternal Life | Jeff Buckley Songs and Sounds’.
