Edie Carey with Aiden James

$15 Cover

An evening with Edie Carey.
To listen to samples, visit www.ediecarey.com

Born in Burlington, Vermont and raised in the Boston suburbs by her English teacher father, therapist mother, and poet stepmother, Edie Carey couldn't help but learn to love words. But her ear for music only became apparent after she “took the stage” in the back seat of her babysitter's green Cadillac, belting out her own rendition of “Up Where We Belong.”

From age nine, after beginning voice lessons, she became involved in singing groups and musicals, which she continued all the way through high school. In the Postcrypt, an intimate music venue in the basement of St. Paul's Chapel at Columbia University, the seeds of possibility were sewn as Carey watched Jeff Buckley, Ani Difranco, and Lisa Loeb among others perform unplugged to candlelit audiences. She saw how words could sometimes have even greater power when used in a song, and simultaneously came to appreciate the sonorous quality of words regardless of their meaning or the melody in which they were framed.

After the release of The Falling Places in 1998, she began venturing outside of New York City to play neighboring east coast cities, and gradually expanded throughout the United States, then Canada and the UK. While the debut was a very sparsely produced acoustic contemporary folk album, Call Me Home, Carey's follow-up in 2000, was by comparison an all-out pop record, a tribute to her early inspirations and the reckless abandon of her childhood. Since 2000, she has been working as a full-time performing songwriter, touring rigorously to promote all of her independently self-released records, which now include Come Close, her 2002 live CD, When I Was Made (2004), and the latest addition to her growing catalog, Another Kind of Fire.

All Good People

An evening with All Good People.
To listen to samples, visit www.allgoodpeopleyestribute.com

“All Good People” pay tribute to the iconic British progressive rock band Yes. All five members of All Good People are accomplished and active in the Philadelphia-area music scene, and take pride in performing at the high level of musicianship established by Yes, learning the songs “inside out, outside in!"

Bill Ridner (bass, vocals) and Josh Steingard (drums, vocals) studied their craft at The Berklee School of Music. Bill passionately powers Chris Squire's timeless basslines with his custom 5- string Rickenbacker. Josh (who studied under Rod Morgenstein) provides the classic Bill Bruford pulse. Jimmy Faber (guitars) captures the varied and sometimes manic styles of Steve Howe. Brian O'Sullivan (keyboards, vocals) cites Geoff Downes, Rick Wakeman, and Keith Emerson among his influences.

Lead vocalist Sammy Vile elicits an early-1970s Jon Anderson stage presence. Together, All Good People bring a musical experience that is greater than the sum of its parts!

Cassidy Catanzaro and Robinson Treacher

$15 Cover$15 Cover

An evening with Cassidy Catanzaro and Robinson Treacher.
A special double feature.

'Cassidy and The Music' is the latest offering from an established and acclaimed musician—a singer, songwriter, producer, and entrepreneur—it marks a new chapter in her career, and in her life. So rather than announcing the arrival of a rookie, Cassidy and The Music represents an artist reborn. The sound that Cassidy creates in front and behind the microphone, takes the singer back to her earliest influences. "I always wrote these little blue-eyed soul ditties—like some cross between Minnie Riperton and Rickie-Lee Jones, with some arena-rock sensibilities in the choruses," she says. "The radio was the only musical instrument in my house growing up, so I love those '70s and '80s melodies." Cassidy says the new name with a joy for what lies ahead. She feels confidently that not only has she evolved as an artist and woman, but this music is among the best she has ever produced. To listen to samples, visit www.cassidyandthemusic.com

At the crossroads of Blues, Folk and Americana lies Robinson Treacher. Whether it be in the studio or in live performance, Robinson's emotionally dramatic songwriting style is matched only by his deeply passionate vocals. Steeped in what can only be labeled as a "traditional" songwriting format, Robinson has taken fibers from all genres. Including rock, country, R&B & folk, and woven them into a distinct tapestry, one that is clearly distinguishable among others in the singer/songwriter genre. Born and raised in New York, his honesty and grit reflect the eclectic musical influences that have shaped everything from from downstate New York City to the upstate Adirondacks. On the heels of his debut release, "Chrome", Robinson has released "Porches", a purposefully "stripped down" collection of songs that rarely contains more than an acoustic guitar, an upright bass and of course those powerfully distinct vocals. He has shared the stage with the likes of Iris Dement, G.E. Smith, Jorma Kaukonen and Vince Gill to name a few. To listen to samples, visit www.robinsontreacher.com

Relying on the insight and inspiration of musicians near and far, as well as his own songwriting abilities, music has always helped Joshua to create a balance in his life. He captivates his audience one song at a time as he lives in every word.

Alfred James Band with Brad Cole

$15 Adv / $18 At the Door

An evening with the Alfred James Band.
To listen to samples, visit www.alfredjamesband.com

Hailing from the Philadelphia area the Alfred James Band weaves classical themes with soulful charm into a cello driven acoustic rock sound that is both original and musically masterful. Rich vocal harmonies, intertwine with the ethereal sounds of Alfred's cello to create a musical texture that is entirely unique. Accompanied by a band that features fiery, virtuosic performances on guitar, bass, violin as well as the driving rhythmic reinforcement of drums and percussion, the Alfred James Band is a musically intelligent and dazzling force to be reckoned with in a world inundated with mass unoriginality.

Performing with his custom made Luis and Clark 5-string carbon fiber cello, there are no musical bounds Alfred will not cross. He is an extraordinary, yet relatable crossover artist in the truest sense. Alfred started playing the cello as a young boy after his father (a surgeon and amateur cellist) suffered a stroke that ended his surgical career. Alfred picked up his dad's cello where he left off and the rest as they say is history.

Danielia Cotton with Giulia Millanta

$15 Cover

An evening with Danielia Cotton.
To listen to samples, visit www.danieliacotton.com

Danielia Cotton closes her new record, The Mystery of Me, with a message of resilience. "The dark spots will appear," she sings on the title track. "Just remember, you're still here. "Cotton penned "The Mystery of Me"—a lovely ode to self acceptance— in just one night. "I sat down and the song came, I was settling into that good place I’m al-right with the fact that there’s a few mysteries to life and to myself. I don’t think I always felt that way, but I do now." The new album's 10 tracks feature an eclectic mix of rock and soul, from the soaring "Set Me Free" to the deeply personal "Drink” and the upbeat "4 Ur Life," which pulls inspiration from classic Motown as well as Sly and the Family Stone, in this we find the Cotton coming to terms with her newfound happiness.

The song’s carpe-diem message also makes it a call to arms for the younger generation in our current political climate, she adds. “I just feel like we need that right now. It's saying something that needs to be heard, but not in a way where you're like ‘goddamn.’ It's not throwing it in your face, but it's also like ‘this is it, the moment it changes.’ Right now, what we do now with everything that's going on, it will change everything. It will change how we are here now and possibly the future.” It’s a strikingly optimistic message, one that Cotton’s arrived at after enduring some incredibly difficult times—where she dropped into an abominable low.

But The Mystery of Me sees the singer/songwriter rising from the ashes of that tumultuous period and finding a new healthier perspective. "This is sort of the album that's coming up to the other side," she says. "There was an EP released before it that was sort of the beginning of the emergence. I was just coming up for the first bit of air. This is me standing more solidly on the ground...It was just writing in a better headspace, mentally and physically."

Danielle Miraglia and Pierce Pettis

$15 Cover$15 Cover

An evening with Danielle Miraglia and Pierce Pettis.
A special double feature.

Danielle Miraglia comes armed with a strong steady thumb on an old Gibson, an infectious stomp-box rhythm and harmonica with tunes ranging from heart-felt to socially conscious that will move both your heart and hips. Her latest "All My Heroes Are Ghosts," released with her band Danielle M and The Glory Junkies touches on a lot of what might be on your mind these days – the loss of so many musical heroes on the title track, the chaos of “fake news” on “Monster,” the general sense that the world is on fire on “All On Fire,” the more personal with the death of a complicated loved one on “Guilt Trip” and more. The music itself blends influences of some of Miraglia’s own musical heroes - The Rolling Stones, Prince, Janis Joplin along with Danielle's lyrical ability to explore human nature at its best and worst. Danielle was nominated for a 2015 Boston Music Award for Singer-Songwriter of the Year. To listen to samples, visit www.daniellem.com

After a lifetime of crafting finely-wrought, heart-touching songs, singer-songwriter Pierce Pettis feels that he’s finally found his comfort zone. “The biggest change,” he says of this point in his career “has been getting over myself and realizing this is a job and a craft. And the purpose is not fame and fortune (whatever that is) but simply doing good work.” Pettis hit the road and became a member of the “Fast Folk” movement in New York in the mid-1980’s. He released one independent solo album, Moments (1984) before signing with High Street Records, a division of Windham Hill. There, he released three albums: While the Serpent Lies Sleeping (1989), Tinseltown (1991), and Chase the Buffalo (1993). His relationship with Tinseltown producer Mark Heard transcended the album. After Heard’s untimely death in 1992, Pettis committed to including a song of Heard’s on every one of his own albums, a practice that continues to this day.

An evening with Callaghan.
To listen to samples, visit www.callaghansongs.com

"Breathtaking...absolutely incredible" is how BBC London's Gaby Roslin described a recent in studio performance by Callaghan. Originally from the UK Callaghan moved to the USA in summer 2010 to record and tour with Grammy-Nominee Shawn Mullins and has been playing live and building her audience ever since.

Playing piano and guitar she delivers a stunning vocal which earns frequent comparisons with artists like Sarah McLachlan and Emmy Lou Harris. Her songwriting chronicles the stories, experiences and emotions which are part of everyone’s lives. A long-time Shawn Mullins fan, she contacted the Atlanta singer-songwriter online and, after being knocked out by her music, he agreed to produce her debut album. Since then Callaghan's been on the road touring with artists including Shawn, Ed Kowalczyk, Matthew Perryman-Jones and headlining her own shows all across the USA.

Reviewing her live show No Depression says “her extraordinary voice truly sets the music apart…nothing short of stunning". Her second studio album, A History of Now, was recorded in Nashville and earned praise on both sides of the pond. The first EP The Other Side released in June 2017 and the second Skin on Skin will release on March 2nd 2018. The new tracks and new location have continued to evolve Callaghan’s sound; taking her music in a more pop direction, while retaining the honest emotions of the singer songwriter and all delivered with Callaghan's soaring, beautiful voice.

Matthew Perryman Jones with Molly Parden

$15 Cover

An evening with Matthew Perryman Jones.
To listen to samples, visit www.mpjmusic.com

A performing songwriter by trade, Matthew Perryman Jones is actually a seeker, at heart. With each entry in his discography, his musical and moral compass points toward an artistic horizon he has yet to explore. Sometimes, he turns his gaze to examine his own inner world. Other times, he looks to the inspirations found in the letters Vincent Van Gogh penned to his brother Theo, in the idea of duende as proffered by Federico García Lorca, and in the poetic verses of Sufi poets Hafiz and Rumi.

Of his most recent release, American Songwriter wrote that, “MPJ’s songwriting acumen could easily be used as a musical template to demonstrate how less can be so much more. Land of the Living sounds cinematic and slowly worms its way inside your brain, feasts upon your emotions, and ultimately burrows down into your soul.” It could be said that Matthew makes soul music — not based on how it sounds, but on where it originates and where it resides.

Originally from Pennsylvania, Matthew grew up in Georgia and cut his artistic teeth in the Atlanta music scene before heading north to Nashville. His debut release, Nowhere Else But Here, dropped in 2000, followed by three subsequent albums — Throwing Punches in the Dark (2006), Swallow the Sea (2008), and Land of the Living (2012) — three additional EPs and a handful of singles. Songs from across his catalog have been featured in dozens of film and TV placements, and tours have taken him across the U.S. and abroad to share stages with legends like Shawn Colvin and Patty Griffin, as well as the Ten Out of Tenn songwriter collective of which he is a part.

A special double feature.

After a successful release of The Marrying Kind last summer, Americana duo Swearingen and Kelli have been crisscrossing the country coast-to-coast on repeated tour runs and finally made that move to become permanent residents of Nashville, TN. Mother Church Pew describes the singer-songwriting duo as the "delicious blend of Swearingen’s smooth baritone and Kelli’s smoky vocals...inspired by great songwriters of the '60s and '70s". Their sophomore album is replete with full throttle emotion and steeped in the sounds of Americana and Country-Folk--their music is layered with lap-steel and dobro inspired by David Lindley and Jerry Douglas. After premiering their moody Appalachian track "Annalise" on Gretsch Guitars and The Daily Country, the pair also got to perform their title track ballad, "The Marrying Kind" with dramatic performances by The Cleveland Orchestra, The Stockton Symphony and The Buffalo Philharmonic. To listen to samples, visit www.swearingenandkelli.com

Based out of Brooklyn, NY, singer/songwriter Brian Dunne's music has won the attention and praise of many. With his sharp lyrical prowess and country-tinged vocals, Brian has played in the U.S. scene far and wide and won the support of many.On February 17th, 2015, Brian released his full length debut "Songs From The Hive," which garnered praise from CMT, Songwriting Magazine, and countless others. He released his sophomore record on May 12, 2017 entitled "Bug Fixes & Performance Improvements" which debuted at #10 on the iTunes Songwriter charts and earned him performances on NPR's Mountain Stage and 2017's Cayamo Cruise. He has shared the stage with many songwriting legends and newcomers, such as Robert Earl Keen, Delbert McClinton, Justin Townes Earle, Lee Ann Womack, and many others.

An evening with Jutaun.
To listen to samples, visit www.jutaun.com

JUTAUN is, first and foremost, a band of brothers. Jake Evans, James Evans, and Samoeun Cheng make up the core of a group that has been exploring, writing, and performing together since they were teenagers in Williamstown, New Jersey. The huge amount of experience JUTAUN has gained playing and experimenting results in music that is both fresh and timelessly mature. The band’s intelligence and self-awareness allows them to bridge the divide separating such seemingly exclusive genres as latin and gospel in a way that not only avoids sounding contrite, but establishes a legitimate sound that they make their own. This blistering refusal to cater to established standards has already caused JUTAUN to cross paths with musical giants, such Leon Huff of Philly International and Gamble and Huff fame.

The close personal bonds between the band members, combined with their boundlessly diverse backgrounds, have created a musical outfit that is able to pull from such dizzying musical influences as the Righteous Brothers, Maroon 5, and Gary Clark Jr. without ever succumbing to cliché. So often in popular music, lyrical significance and meaning is forgotten in favor of lazy pandering, but JUTAUN disrupts this trend. Instead of seeking to avoid offense, they reach deep into their own experience and conscious to deliver lyrics that even find occasion to wander into the realm of poetry, such as in their song “Who am I” when James Evans sings “Who am I to judge/Who am I to deny love/Who am I to try to pick the world apart/But I refuse to be deceived/By the imposters and the thieves/That attempt to gain an entrance to my heart.”

The story of how JUTAUN came to be reveals the band’s current success to be even more dramatic. Jake and James Evans are brothers who were tutored and lured into the world of music through their father’s intense involvement and personal love affair with music of all kinds. As their father performed on a bass guitar, the brothers grew up within the fertile walls of music venues all around New Jersey, surrounded by musicians, fans, and industry professionals.
