Review for Who's Your Daddy?:

This intriguing showcase of music, movement, mischief and madness promises unexpected sounds and sensations delivered by three seasoned improvisers: Cilla Vee (movement) from Asheville, N.C., Davey Williams (electric guitar) from Birmingham, and Evan Lipson (double bass) from Chattanooga, with special guest percussionist Bob Stagner (Shaking Ray Levis). 

Cilla Vee (Claire Elizabeth Barratt) is an inter-disciplinary artist with a performing arts background, who blurs boundaries and crosses categories to re-define the traditional concepts of a “piece” and challenge the conventions of performance, time, space and audience relationships. She is the director of “Cilla Vee Life Arts” – an arts organization with a focus on cross-media collaboration. She has performed and taught throughout the USA, Canada, Europe and Japan, and she received her professional training in London at The Laban Centre For Movement and Dance and at the London Studio Centre For Performing Arts.  Previously based in New York, Cilla Vee's current homebase is Asheville, N.C. where she continues to develop and present her signature “Motion Sculpture Movement Installations” and “The Sound Of Movement” projects.

Davey Williams is one of the most unique musical figures to have ever come from the state of Alabama. Considered one of the “three founding fathers of American free improvisational guitar” (along with Henry Kaiser and Eugene Chadbourne), he is the only person to ever successfully - and honestly - bridge the gap between the disparate worlds of Robert Johnson and Sun Ra. As a 19-year-old protégé of the late Delta and Chicago blues master Johnny Shines (a protégé of Robert Johnson and Howlin’ Wolf), Davey mastered the slide steel stylings of his teacher and expounded on the form by taking the blues in directions few knew it could go or dare try. Dubbing his style “convulsive blues,” he has quietly blown minds around the world through his unique deployment of old-school form and new school technique as a solo artist and member of Trans Museq and Curlew. 

Evan Lipson has operated as a musician since adolescence—intuitively seeking the liminal zones in which intellect and instinct, history and myth, and creative and destructive force intersect. He is currently active with Roughhousing and may or may not have some degree of involvement or affiliation with an organization known as Meinschaft. Recently, he has scored several films as well as written music for a new collaboration with Duplex Planet creator David Greenberger and Bob Stagner of the Shaking Ray Levis.
