“I had a crazy idea and was looking for musicians who perhaps didn’t think it was so insane”.  - Dave Alvin
The Third Mind
Starting four years ago as a wishful music fantasy, this California based Supergroup, The Third Mind, has now become a powerful and thrilling sonic reality. 
The brainchild of Grammy winning songwriter/guitarist Dave Alvin and veteran alternative music bassist Victor Krummenacher, (Camper Van Beethoven, Monks of Doom, Eyelids),The Third Mind's recordings also feature guitarist David Immerglück, (Counting Crows, Monks of Doom, Camper Van Beethoven), drummer Michael Jerome, (Richard Thompson, Better Than Ezra, John Cale) and vocalist Jesse Sykes from her critically acclaimed group, Jesse Sykes And The Sweet Hereeafter. Using their decades of experience as bandleaders and side-persons, playing both traditional and non-traditional music, The Third Mind combines folk-rock, blues, jazz, post-punk and freeform psychedelia into their own dark, moody yet also hopeful and beautiful sonic landscapes.  

Featured in festival previews as a must-see from the San Francisco Chronicle to CBS News, The Third Mind made their live debut performance at the 2023 Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival in San Francisco’s legendary Golden Gate Park. Combining folk-rock, blues, jazz, post-punk, and freeform psychedelia with dark, moody yet hopeful and beautiful sonic landscapes, the “neo-psychedelic” (Press Democrat) band used their decades of experience as bandleaders and side-persons, playing both traditional and non-traditional music to mesmerize a crowd estimated at 4,000.
