roots, referencing bands like The Descendents, NOFX, and early Green Day. Other influences include Bayside, The Weakerthans Jimmy Eat World, Deathcab for Cutie, The Beatles, and Bright Eyes. The band s sound blends hard rock drums and guitar w ith punk i nspired bass lines beneath Maryjo's melodic, edgy, and powerful vocals. Heartfelt and often searing lyrics leave listeners feeling the raw emotion behind the music and craving more Prior to becoming Ex Educated, Mark and Matty had been playing in various bands together for over ten years (including Lucifer Pants, The Outies, and Calloused Hearts) while Maryjo rocked the sol o singer -songwriter shtick While the circumstances that brought them together were less than pleasant this peculiar grouping generates an oddly original and refreshing sound that breathes new life into each venue they play. Ex Education released its first EP, Emotion Sickness, in November of 2009 and is currently writing and recording new material for a full length album to be released in the early part of 2011. Ex Education is Mark Peteritas on drums, Matty Campbell on bass, and Maryjo Oster on guitar and vocals. Mark is from the small town of Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania He has been playing in bands since he could ride a bike. A jack of all trades, Mark is a skilled songwri ter, mastering engineer, computer programmer, property investor, nacho and wing aficionado, and expert mustache grower. He grew up in a family with a passion for music, playing guitar and saxophone, but comes from a long lineage of drummers, making it only a matter of time before he stepped behind a drum kit Matty hails from Ephrata, Pennsylvania, and has also been playing music since he donned his first Phillies cap. When not rocking the bass, you might find Matty play ing gu itar, singing, and occasionally even beh i nd a drum kit. He is also a talented illustrator, writer, cat lover, and quite the ladies man. He works as a professional landscaper by day and has a strong affinity for PBR and an undying devotion to the Philadelphia Phillies Maryjo (the token non Pennsylvanian) made her way up north from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to teach k ids how to have sex ... safely. Sporting a PhD. in Educational Theory and Pol icy, Maryjo intends to help shape the nation's education agenda whi le playing sultry punk rock in the shadows and break i ng hearts along the way. She has been singing and playing p i ano since she could add and subtract and started playing guitar and writing songs once they taught her fractions Wolff BoW'den '95 The Winterlings Wolff Bowden grew up in a house on concrete stilts,15 feet above a Florida swamp. Summer nights brought symphonies of alligators, owls, and frogs. But in Wolff' s recurring dream, it was always winter, and he walked out among the cypresses to sit by a blazing fire where h e would sing to a strange collection of forest beings he called The Winterlings Amanda Birdsall was working on a doctorate in psychology, halfway through an Adult Psychopathology class, when she looked down at her 50TH ANNIVERSARY notebook. Instead of transcribing the lecture she had completely filled the marg ins w ith song lyrics She stood up, walked out of class, grabbed her guitar and drove to Canada where she worked on organic farms in exchange for food and t i ny rooms where she wrote songs by candlelight. Since childhood, Wolff had been painting his dreams of otherworldly beings, skeletons on b i cycles and winged women. He painted secretly from grade school to college shot some s l ides and was named Artist of the Millennium by ARTEXPO MIAMI. At the show, Wolff sold his first painting to baseball legend Andre Dawson for $5, 000. After that, he traveled the country making and selling art. The art sales bought Wolff time to write. He published two books of poetry, including 36 poems that appeared i n literary magazines. But for Wolff, something was sti ll missing. A deep wish remained unfu l filled He had turned paint into money into time into poetry, but l ike an alchemist who had turned steel to silver he knew there was another step. How could he turn bright canvases and poetry to music? He needed a way to paint the wind itself, to extract color from silence and distill it into song. But he had never learned an instrument. He cou l dn t play a single chord Meanwhile, Amanda roamed. Camping in the Rocky Mountains of Montana bagging dried fru i t in a Canadian nut factory, and cultivating collards in North Carolina gradually led her south to Florida where she fought for abused children as a social IMBL-WI TER 2010 I 'l


worker. But the job was heartrending, so she left to clean houses for a year until exhaustion and the cost of rent drove her into the air -conditioned corporate world. Her guitar went under the bed in the coffin of its case, and like any good ghost, it haunted her Wolff and Amanda met one night at a party where a Buddhist ritual had just taken place in a backyard fire pit. The ritual consisted of writing, on small slips of paper, wishes that would burn in the flames so their smoke might lift them into the wind and make them real. Wolff burned his wish and Amanda arrived an hour later. She was the muse and the music he had been waiting for, and his life as an artist re-awakened her desire for a creative life. Wolff and Amanda sold their cars on Ebay bought a banged-up van from a motorcycle shop, and drove to Oregon where they knew no one. They rented a small apartment next to a large forest and wrote the songs for their first album: On The Night You Were Born. This album, released under the name ofThe Orphan Trains, supported a second trip to Oregon where Amanda and Wolff slipped into a blue cocoon, wrote their new album, THE ANIMAL GROOM, and became The Winterlings. Jennifel' La thana Robinson '95 OrnyMachine OmyMachine is an electro acoustic folk group comprised of Jennifer Latham Robinson '95 and David Robinson. Their music videos can be viewed on www. OmyMachineMusic. com and tracks can be downloaded at www.omymachine.bandcamp. com This unsigned local group 6 IMRl \X. I fER. 1 performs throughout the Tampa Bay area. The couple formed over 11 years ago when they met during a New College Wall. At the time, Jennifer was completing her thesis project and David was in his third year as a fine arts student at the University of South Florida. Today Jennifer runs her own medical arts illustration business that specializes in depicting medical supplies for children. She is also a case manager and marketing director for a local company that fabricates artificial limbs and orthopedic bracing. David custom sculpts and paints highrealism silicone prosthetic devices for the same company. He also is a freelance portrait artist. Together, they have two young children. Bobby Devito '93 Bobby Devito Blues Experience with Bob Phelps '91 and Curtis Hayes '91 Sooner or later it was bound to happen: Bobby DeVito would find his way back to his roots Not that he has ever strayed too far ; his heady blend of americana and blues influences has coursed through everything the guitarist has done. But DeVito has never been one to let genre hem him in. Over the years, he played in his share of rock bands, blues bands, ambient electronic recording projects, Top 40 bands, and even exploring Haitian Compas music and various other Carribbean island music styles Perhaps no other Florida guitarist in recent memory has had as restless a muse as Bobby DeVito Born the son of an Italian father and a Scottish/Native American mother, and raised in rural North Carolina, Bobby came under the tutelage of his hard -living maternal grandfather, Warren "Slim" Henderson, who played on WWNC in Asheville with Jimmie Rodgers (the Singing Brakeman "). and also hosted a live radio show at the Grand Ole Opry in the 40s. After being fired from his live radio show for getting liquored up and singing obscenities on the air and consequently being "blacklisted in Nashville for his wild behavior, Slim settled down in North Carolina and started his own little side business, a moonshine still Slim still played his old battered guitar-now one of Bobby s prized possessions mostly on his lap, using a pocket knife for a slide. Bobby was hooked straight away. Besides his early tutorials from Slim, he soaked up the work of Clapton, Hendrix, and Peter Green. starting at age 12 he played in a variety of bands throughout high school, mostly with older cats, which helped to accelerate his development. After North Carolina, the DeVito famly picked up and moved to New Orleans, where the young DeVito was able to soak up the second line rhythms and revel in the city's sultry ambience Travel and change has been a major theme in DeVito's life and now he seems to have come to yet another crossroads in his musical career ..

In 1992, Big Soul self produced an album in a 16 track studio in Los Angeles after trying desperately to get attention from record companies without any luck They spent the early 90s slogging it out in bars and nightclubs in L A and San Francisco, relentlessly promoting their CDs after shows, and even during trivia games which they played with the audience between songs And that is where the fairy tale part comes in One night, on L.A.'s Sunset Boulevard, a French tourist bought one of their homemade CDs.
