Canadian percussionist and producer Bob Deveau has been creating electronic music and performing under the moniker Senior Citizen for the past ten years. Perhaps best known as drummer for Grand Theft Bus, Deveau has also been a member of The Olympic Symphonium, Share, and Snailhouse.
In 2009, Deveau began recording drum tracks as a base for new electronic compositions out of his parent’s barn in his hometown of Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia. These tracks were then built upon in the computer and passed onto several vocalists and instrumentalists from around Atlantic Canada for contributions. Seven years later
, the final result is a stunning collection of eclectic electronic music and a truly collaborative record with over 11 different side musicians offering vocals, guitars, keyboards, and lap steel on top of many layers of percussion and electronics.
