New Telepathic Friends take their name from a spin on a quote by electronic music pioneer Bruce Haack. Although NTF sound nothing like his experimental electronica, their music radiates a similar joy in finding the unexpected in the familiar. Having gigged and toured in previous projects on both coasts, Jen Faith (electric bass & vocals), Jeremy (electric guitar) and Todd (drums & backing vocals) met in San Francisco in 2003. Their exceptional songwriting is the result of consistent collaboration between all members. The sweet, thoughtful vocals of Jen Faith, blended with the brightly colored yet sensibly grounded electric guitar sounds of Jeremy, are given form and cadence by the well patterned drum performance of Todd. The strong musicianship and chemistry among these three is evident especially in their live performances. Jen Faith has earned a loyal following by performing her solo acoustic music at dozens of venues throughout the bay area. Jeremy's music background comes most heavily from the punk/emo scene of turn of the century San Diego, where he played in bands such as Julia and Purl. Todd started playing music in the D.C. post punk scene, and has extensive recording experience with projects in Minneapolis, Portland and the Bay Area. The combination has been called a warm, unhurried sound accented with bright guitar and distinctive vocals. New Telepathic Friends began performing live in the Summer of 2004 and completed a seven song recording at Last Stop Records which is available here on CD. Enjoy!
