Seth Faergolzia & the 23 Psaegz / Bio


The names "Seth Faergolzia" and "Dufus" have long been associated in the freak-folk indie community with the frenetic, unpredictable, and defiant voice warbling of the NYC-based singer/songwriter, and an equally enthusiastic backing band with every bit of raw power and energy as your average college marching band.

Since the 2010 dissolution of Dufus, Seth Faergolzia's 13-year-long musical project, Seth has been spending his time in Rochester, NY, working harder than ever on several creative pursuits. In addition to frequently touring Europe and the U.S. as a solo musician, Seth rehearses with an ensemble of 13-odd people, now dubbed the 23 Psaegz, a group of local musicians who were originally only recruited in 2010 to perform Seth's epic rock opera, also named "23 Psaegz."

The Psaegz have recorded one album so far: "Tin Wood Soldier," released in April 2012. A recording project for the rock opera is underway.

Many Psaegz are also members of other local musical projects in Rochester, notably Paxtor, There I Say Is Lightning, The Sleep Soundlies, Bogs Visionary Orchestra, Passive Aggressives Anonymous, and Heck Yup!

The 23 Psaegz are:
Seth Faergolzia: lead vocals & guitar
Neeti Fidurko: keytar, piano, vocals, percussion
Brett Gobe: tuba, sousaphone
Laura Lee Jones: vocals, washboard
