"Can accessible music be intelligent?  And intelligent music passionate?  Adam Levin and Wendy Boulding try to
answer that question with their music.  Wendy from the world of American soul and jazz, Adam from the less straightforward
world of European ("progressive") art rock, or jazz- and classical-rock fusion.  What happens when you combine it all?"
 

 
                    Welcome to the world of Different Drum Music.  Our music ranges from pop to contemporary classical -- with some other, wayward elements sneaked in!
