Octomutt is a San Francisco Bay Area gigging duo comprising Ashley Adams (string bass) and Ted Savarese (guitar). Each of their projects is unique and each utilizes other instrumentalists for color and texture. Among the musicians that have worked with Octomutt are Ralph Carney, Danny Frankel, Ken Emerson, Tom Herman, J. Raoul Brody and Brandi Shearer. Classically trained, Ashley has played with the likes of Eugene Chadbourne, Henry Kaiser, and Laurie Lewis among many others. Ted has worked in as diverse genres as art film music and saloon C&W. Aquarius Records review: 'There's a definite down home, earthy feel to Octomutt's music-seeming very casual and off the cuff-however an occasional detour into more trippy, eccentric territory is certainly not out of the question.'
