Craig Bickhardt, Nathan Bell and Irene Molloy

You may have heard Craig Bickhardt's songs in the Academy Award-winning film Tender Mercies or sung by artists such as Johnny Cash, Ray Charles, Alison Krauss and B. B. King. He has appeared on Austin City Limits, the Grand Ol Opry, Mountain Stage and has shared the concert stage with Bruce Springsteen, Harry Chapin, Hank Williams Jr. and dozens of legendary performers in a career that spans more than four decades.

When Craig Bickhardt steps onto a concert stage, he comes equipped with his trusty acoustic guitar. A side musician or two will frequently join him. He's also accompanied by something invisible, yet ever-present: the stories of a lifetime, vividly translated into words and melody.

From the boisterous club scene of Philadelphia to the country-rock milieu of Los Angeles to the picking parlors of Nashville, Craig has immersed himself in the sights and sounds of American music. His music reflects a life lived as a rock band lead singer, a solo troubadour, a dedicated songwriter, a husband and father. Dreams, heartaches and hard-earned lessons have fed his creativity. There is no other way he could've written the eloquent, often bittersweet songs that have become his trademark.





Nathan Bell

Tennessee singer-songwriter Nathan Bell is known for his straightforward yet poetic lyrics, and expert musicianship. His stories are of everyman, sung with honesty and empathy. Though his subjects are often dark and troubled, Bell never leaves the listener without, as Cohen wrote, 'the crack, where the light comes through.'

A master guitarist, Bell often performs solo, allowing his instrument to turn his poetry to song, his metaphors to melody. Acoustic Guitar Magazine described his music as "rock-tinged country-folk," his voice as "rustic, coupling the grain of Levon Helm with the gruff troubadour lilt of Kris Kristofferson."

Son of famed poet-laureate of Iowa, Marvin Bell, his early years were filled with the comings and goings of literary giants such as Kurt Vonnegut and Studs Terkel. Instead of picking up a pen, Bell picked up a guitar.

Sing Out! Magazine called his music
"Powerful stuff...bleak, yet oddly comforting."

Bell's records have been played on nationally syndicated stations such as NPR's Midnight Special and have topped folk/roots charts in the US and in Europe

De Tierra Caliente

After four years touring Argentina, Brazil and Colombia as bassist in several Latin bands, Bronson Tennis returned to Philadelphia to form his own band. De Tierra Caliente: a fusion of Brazilian, Caribbean and American rhythms with catchy melodies and unaffected lyrics. While traveling and learning the languages of Caribbean and Brazilian musicians, Bronson began to mix his American roots with Afro-Latino rhythms to inspire an undeniably fun North/South American dance party.

De Tierra Caliente bridges Philadelphia's boricua (Puerto Rican) and gringo communities, as Bronson is joined by Puerto Rican percussionist and Philly Salsa icon, Edwin "Papo Buda" Rosado, who for decades has performed with local groups such as the Latin Playboys and Saboricua and has appeared with the world-renowned Gran Combo de Puerto Rico. Papo and his red-headed gringo apprentice Tim Leslie are an unlikely duo of bearded percussionists, laying down powerful Latin grooves that make it impossible to stay in your seat.


De Tierra Caliente delivers the sabor, spice and alegría of warm-weather Latin American countries to audiences in the northeastern US, where formidable winters and nose-to-the-grindstone work ethic sometimes overshadow simple pleasures like sharing a meal with friends or going out dancing. At a De Tierra Caliente show, you can't help but warm up as intoxicating songs in Spanish, English and Portuguese sing out the bright colors and familial heat of a South American kitchen.

The Regan Brothers Band

Doylestown foursome The Regan Bros. takes you on a journey of familiar indulgence.

Awash of classic rock, influences both unmistakable and esoteric, soar into a pleasantly enigmatic dé·jà vu.

From The Key / WXPN

It's getting more and more difficult for bands to not get pigeonholed into a single genre. Creating an original sound can be tough, but indie rock band The Regan Brothers is able keep its songs distinct and create a unique feeling from one to another.

Made up of singer/guitarist Chris Regan, singer/keyboardist Elliot Regan, drummer Erik Regan and bassist Walker Gall, The Regan Brothers are a relatively new band, forming back in 2013, but it already has released two EPs — the most recent one, II, came out last month.

Recorded and produced by Bill Moriarty, the four-track EP is reminiscent of lo-fi baroque pop Dr. Dog, neo-psychedelia Tame Impala and blues rock Jack White. Each track is distinct in its own way from the other ones, but there are small similarities between the tracks that keep them together so that the EP flows.

Richard Bush and The Peace Creeps

Richard Bush, former lead singer for the A's has recently released his second CD with his new band The Peace Creeps called "Time Machine."

Recorded at Richard's home studio in Bensalem, Pa., the 12-song CD was co-written by AJay McLaughlin, a Frankford High School friend and poet who has been Richard's writing partner since the early 90s.

The A's had success in the late 70s/early 80s with two albums on Arista Records and the hit song "A Woman's got the Power."

After the break-up of that iconic Philadelphia band, Bush formed a couple of bands but ended up taking 11 years off from the music business before coming back with The Peace Creeps.

"I love the chemistry of this band. I've never been happier with a band in my life," Richard mused recently.

The second album features the current line-up of Bush on vocals, Johnny Marchiano (Iota, Kenn Kweder, etc) on guitar, Roy Fisher on bass, and Jeff Pancoast on drums.

Former A's member, Rocco Notte adds keyboards on the new CD but is not in the performing band.

The new CD is getting regular airplay on several area radio stations including 88.5 FM WXPN where The Peace Creeps also appeared at a free at noon concert recently. It is available to buy on iTunes or at live shows.

Deb Callahan and Christine Havrilla

Philadelphia's blues and soul drenched vocalist and songwriter Deb Callahan grew up in the Boston area but has been a mainstay on the mid-Atlantic music scene since the late 90′s. During this time she has gained a reputation for writing creative blues, soul and roots influenced original music and using her powerful, expressive voice and engaging stage presence to deliver an exciting live show.

Her 2002 debut CD "If the Blues Had Wings" was featured as the hot debut in the October/November 2004 issue of Blues Revue Magazine. Blues Revue referred to her as the next Bonnie Raitt and raved "Philly's Deb Callahan has the pipes, the songs and the raw talent to graduate to the next level". Her fourth and most recent CD, entitled "Tell It Like It Is" was released in October 2010 which debuted at #19 on the Living Blues Radio Chart and received regular airplay on the XM/Sirius Bluesville radio channel as well as blues and Triple A radio stations around the country.

The songs are blues based with gospel, soul, rock and jazz influences and deal with a range of topics and issues such as experiencing love and joy, finding spirituality, giving voice to the experience of homeless children without family support and how hard it can be to make life changes. Doing social work in the heart of Philadelphia would be a good place to learn about life's hard knocks and this urban school ground taught singer/songwriter Deb Callahan well. Her rich, honest and soulful tunes resonate with listeners and run the gamut from soulful ballads, to upbeat, dance oriented grooves.

Her road tested band includes Allen James, Garry Lee and Tom Walling. Deb is working on her 5th CD which she is hoping to release sometime in 2014.





Christine Havrilla

CHRISTINE HAVRILLA & GYPSY FUZZ

Philadelphia area native Christine Havrilla, after embarking on an ambitious new journey with her Gypsy Fuzz project in late 2011, is releasing a series of "Live Sessions" in 2014 which will include long-time fan favorites as well as new songs with her current band, Gypsy Fuzz. Recording in numerous settings such as live shows, living rooms, a recording studio with an live audience, in an old church, etc... these volumes will capture the spontaneous energy and musical adventures that Christine brings to the stage, ANY stage! Havrilla, who has six studio albums, four EPs, and over a dozen years of touring under her belt, continues to venture out under "Christine Havrilla & Gypsy Fuzz" as well as a solo artist, showcasing ALL of her music with new twists. "Searching. Finding. Living.", the darker & electric guitar-based debut release from Gypsy Fuzz, produced by Larry Crane (Cat Power, Sleater-Kinney, Elliott Smith) and Christine, is described as "a blend of 70's, 80's, and 90's rock delivered by the modern singer/songwriter."

Mark Rogers at 93.7 WSTW raves, "With Gypsy Fuzz (the album and the band), Christine takes especially that rock element and turns it to 11. Gypsy Fuzz fuses fantastic guitar work with Christine's vocals, which can reach down inside and grab your heart. A very diverse album, showing elements of rock, blues and even country, among others, Gypsy Fuzz continues Christine's string of fantastic albums. Buy it."

21st Century Troubadours Special Presentation: Don Henry, Craig Bickhardt and Buddy Mondlock with Host J.D Malone

Troubadours were an integral part of courtly life. Their songs provided narrative insight into the lives and courts of the noblemen. The courtly duties of these poet-musicians were both literary and musical as they composed to reflect the issues, feelings and characteristics in the castles and courts of the wealthy. The root verbs "trobar" and "trouver" mean "to find" or "to invent" and imply that troubadours were perhaps also gifted improvisers of both verse and music.

Don Henry

Grammy Award winner Don Henry's songs have been recorded by legends like: Ray Charles, Patti Page and Conway Twitty
By country crooners like:Gene Watson, John Conlee and B.J. Thomas
By young hit makers of today like:Blake Shelton, Lonestar and Miranda Lambert ....
.....and the list goes on.

2014 Song of the Year " All Kinds of Kinds" recorded by Miranda Lambert

The wit and wisdom of Don's songs are widely renowned whether it's campfire favorites, the hilarious "B.F.D." and biker lullaby "Harley", to the wonderfully poignant tribute to Martin Luther King "Beautiful Fool", and of course his Grammy Award winning country classic "Where've You Been".
In addition to a Grammy, Kathy Mattea's version of "Where've You Been" won Don (and co-writer Jon Vezner) song of the year honors from ACM (Academy of Country Music), CMA (Country Music Association) and NSAI (Nashville Songwriters Association International).
"Where've You Been" was the first song in country music history to be awarded all four honors in the same year!

Craig Bickhardt

Craig Bickhardt's songs have been recorded by over 150 artists world wide including Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, B. B. King, Alison Krauss and Kathy Mattea.

His songs appear in three films including Academy Award winner TENDER MERCIES, SWITCHBACK and AT CLOSE RANGE, as well as the TV shows Hidden Palms, Wildfire, and Huff.

He has received nine ASCAP Awards and four R.I.A.A. Platinum Album Awards for his songs, which include four #1 hits and 15 Billboard charting singles.

craigbickhardt.com

Buddy Mondlock

Buddy Mondlock writes songs. He does it so well that some great songwriters have recorded his songs on their own albums. Guy Clark, Nanci Griffith and Janis Ian, to name just a few. But theres nothing like hearing the guy who wrote em sing em. Hes not going to pin your ears back with those songs. Hes going to draw you into his world. Where a single snowflake follows the trajectory of a relationship, where you get your pocket picked by a Roman cat, where you might swim over the edge of the world if youre not careful and where dreams that dont come true still count. And it can all be happening in a little folk club or on a stage by a grassy hill or in someones living room or in the Royal Albert Hall.

His new album, The Edge of the World, is his most personal recording to date. The song cycle is an introspective journey from childhood through to the disintegration of a marriage and beyond. And while always a wry observer of the social interactions of human beings, the song Big Fish, Shallow Water takes on a political edge as well. Buddy did most of the playing and singing himself, with a little help from longtime friend, bassist Mike Lindauer. Then co-producer Jim Tullio added just the right sonic touches of percussion and atmospheric guitar to glue it all together.

Sammy Flow

Riding the Contemporary R&B Rapids with SAMMY FLOW

By, John Pfieffer, Music Columnist; The Aquarian Weekly (9/3/14)


"What do Robert Randolph, world-famous producer Tommy Marolda and supergroup Asia all have in common? Well, Sammy Flow, of course. That's right, not only has this next New Jersey artist shared the stage with Robert Randolph, but he's also scheduled to join Asia—those "Monsters Of Rock" that penned the mega-hit, "Heat Of The Moment" on Sept. 26.


His website also includes strong praise by the guy who was involved with my current favorite series of movies. Tommy Marolda is well known for his addictive work on The Expendables...Marolda has also worked on the Rocky franchise, and with musical aficionados The Killers, Rod Stewart, Cher and Richie Sambora to name a select few."We receive so many requests for Sammy Flow's sound and it just isn't out there. I'll be co-writing with Sammy to help him further his career as a recording artist and also to build his music catalog for placement in film and television."


Flow was attracted to R&B at a very early age. And, as most of us did, he had his high school band development time frame, and by the age of 16 he was down in the Village playing the venues of the day. He eventually even took a side route into the world of hip-hop and rap, having fun with the genre for about five years before re-focusing and getting back to his current evolutionary style... Flow's ability to move from a gritty howl to soprano smooth pitch changes seems so easy when he does it...Flow winds up and wallops a trademarked raspy raw choral shot deep into the bridge. This is a sound that has no stake in the wannabe world of the pop scene right now, and that's perfect. Flow is also an accomplished guitarist and his foray into pop-tinged jazz licks reminds me of the sun-splashed melodic work of Rodney Sheppard from Sugar Ray.


Sammy Flow hails from the westernmost section of Hunterdon County, in Flemington, NJ. With a style that falls somewhere between contemporary pop and jazz-infused R&B, Flow is a unique contender for brave new sound. In a state filled with Americana cowboys and Bob Dylan hipsters, Flow's dedication to soulful rhythm and blues is a welcome and exciting break. [His] understanding of style and delivery are highly attuned, and I'm not surprised that co-writers of Marolda's caliber are working with him." Flow performs with his band members, Kevin Bene, Sax; Dan Jefferson, Drums; Dustin Napoli, Keys; Barry Cary, Bass Guitar, and Carole Brooks, backup vocals.
