Chris Alan CD Release Show with special guests Rodger Delaney and Andrea Carlson

Chris Alan is a talented, up and coming artist with an extreme passion for songwriting which is evident in his live performance.

He hails from the Philadelphia region and has shared stages with Rausch, Craig Thatcher, John Faye from Ike, and Christine Ohlman from Saturday Night Live.

His latest album, Eventide Sky conveys strong, heartfelt messages that combine the ingredients of emotional melodies and catchy lyrics. His latest collection of songs is an impressive career milestone and only marks the beginning.





Rodger Delaney

"Father, friend, recovering electric guitarist..."

After years as a lead guitarist, Rodger Delany put down the electric guitar and dusted off an old acoustic starting on a path to find his own voice. The journey began by performing at numerous open mics where he was mentored by veterans and soon developed his own style. Rodger performed his first solo acoustic show at a sold-out Tin Angel in Philly in November 2010. By the end of 2011, Rodger had performed at venues such as The World Café Live, The Legendary Dobbs, The Record Collector and the Dewey Beach Music Conference. Rodger went on to perform at premier events and venues such as Musikfest, Millennium Music Conference, Cape May Singer Songwriter, Liberty Music Festival, Hollystock, World Cafe Live at the Queen Theater and House of Blues Los Angeles.

In 2012, Rodger released his all-acoustic CD called "Moment of Truth." Recorded at Philly Sound Studios, "Moment of Truth" includes sixteen songs performed with a single vocal and simple acoustic guitar or piano. Highlights include the title track Moment of Truth, Blind and Mischief. Late in 2012, Rodger Delany recorded "Alright to Love (Christmas Again)" for the WSTW 93.7 Hometown Heroes Holiday Album - a fundraiser benefiting the Toys for Tots foundation. In October 2013, Rodger Delany released the remixed/remastered piano version of "Mischief."

Andrea Carlson

Born in Tennessee, Andrea Carlson moved all around the country growing up. In high school, the family settled in Chicago, and she attended college there too. First, she was a student of Fine Art at Columbia College. Later, she transferred to the American Conservatory of Music, where she earned her BM in Classical Guitar. A singer and lover of jazz, Andrea moonlighted as a vocalist throughout her studies with several different bands, doing music from the 20s, 30s, and 40s. This continued for 10 years, and she was able to perform in many of the top venues and festivals -- a highlight was opening for the one and only James Brown!

Music has always played a central role in Ben's life.

His wit and skill as a songwriter and storyteller showcases a gifted artist who is comfortable in both his own skin and with his impressive musical legacy.

Ben's latest effort, Listening, seamlessly merges the sounds and styles of folk, pop, soul, urban, reggae and country/western, running the gamut from
sonically spacious acoustic numbers to multi-layered vocals and fresh beats.

Taylor is continually breaking new boundaries with his music and his latest endeavors has him subtly incorporating live production or techniques into his show with his
bandmate "Beatzy" opening vast new palette of sound and rhythm to complement his signature guitar style and soul penetrating voice.





Think Joni Mitchell meets Laura Marling and you've got a good idea as to what Lily Mae, a 17-year-old Contemporary Folk singer-songwriter, sounds like.

Music industry legend and president emeritus of Blue Note Records, Bruce Lundvall says, "Lily Mae has a signature voice, writes excellent songs, and will be a future star."

Lily has worked with Joan Osborne, Livingston Taylor, Ben Taylor , the Marshall Tucker Band, Jenny Owen Youngs, Toby Lightman , Amy Helm , Harry Shearer and Judith Owen , Paul Shaffer, Louden Wainwright, Chris Collingwood , Alice Ripley. The Claire Lynch Band and Amy Correia

On the heels of Lily Mae's debut release, "Early Days," iTunes featured Lily as a New & Noteworthy singer-songwriter. Lily hails from Bucks County, PA, but has quite the following in the UK. "Early Days" has been reviewed on both Folk Radio UK and For Folk's Sake. For Folk's Sake called Lily "a younger Laura Marling before she was scorned by life."Truly amazing, prodigal, and innovative" are all words that have been used to describe Lily's work.

Lily has played at Philadelphia Folk Festival, Musikfest and Black Potatoe Music Festival. This summer Lily will be at The Firefly Music Festival.

Singer/Songwriter Tim Butler has been a staple on the Philadelphia original music scene for many years.

Songs from any of his 4 solo releases have been enjoyed by fans in venues all throughout the northeastern part of the USA, on radio and in film, and by people all over the world that have either purchased CDs or downloaded his music. 

"Tim Butler's new release is packed with emotional songwriting with hooky choruses. The title track should be triple AAA radio rotation and it doesn't stop there. "No Better Place To Be" and "Tryin" deliver a roots and blues feel with great lyrics and hooks. "Special Plan" delivers an alt country offering showing Tim's and his band's versatility. Tim writes and composes great songs which you can tell come from his soul. The two acoustic tracks on the CD demonstrate his talents. This one of the best releases I have heard in this acoustic rock genre this year.""

Mike Roi and The Secret People with Stonebaby

Mike Roi grew up in Jupiter, South Florida.

Lived and was immersed for years after in the music scenes of Philadelphia and NYC.

Now residing in Easton,Pa.

Mike has been singing in bands since the age of 16 and has been pursuing his passion for the kind of soulful music he grew up with ever since.



Stonebaby

With the inception of the band came an almost magical approach to writing and developing original music between the original members whose friendship spanned better than a decade.

Scott Philipp, a singer /songwriter immersed in the Philadelphia music scene, was lead to push himself and focus on his powerful vocals. Scott creates tasteful melodies and lyrics over his forever simple, yet developing guitar playing skills. As he introduces ideas he and Tony Schiavo (Drums), always collaborate on the arrangement of the music to create a stylized rhythm that is unique to each song. Until recently, the band had cravings for a guitar player who would add simple dynamics and depth to the songs. With the revolving guitar position, the band made a commitment to head into the studio and record a three song EP to develop a style that would pinpoint the lead guitar sound that they really needed.

Producer Drew Raison of Big Sky Audio, took the reins and seasoned the music to what is now the true sound of StoneBaby. The new recording, which has a commercial rock appeal, is set to capture all age listeners. As the band continues to evolve with new music... and newly added guitar and bass players, Bobby Leonhardt and Jason Shainline the EP is certain to prove to be a canvas for the band to expand its musical creativity and listening audience.

Philly Co-Op presents: Jefferson Berry & The Urban Acoustic Coalition with Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes

Jefferson Berry & The Urban Acoustic Coalition

From the drunk on the town to the cop on the take, there's an interesting tale in the songs of Jefferson Berry.

As a published historian, JB has a perspective that is progressive and accessible. With a variety of guitar styles, Berry's projects bring a danceable feel and contemporary point of view to a unique wing of the Americana/Folk scene.

The songs of Jefferson Berry reached new heights in the summer of 2011 with his band's performance at the Philadelphia Folk Festival. Produced with vocalist/daughter Briana Berry, The Berrys debut album Fairmount Station was released that fall and received play across the country on Americana chart-reporting stations.

While The Berrys' album Fairmount Station got play around the country, the project also caught the attention of a variety of players who now comprise The Urban Acoustic Coalition. Anchored by the versatility of Dave Brown on Dobro, Banjo, Strat and whatever else that's needed, the Coalition has included Bud Burroughs, Marky B, Billy Hyatt, Dean McNulty, David Rapoport and Keisha Slaughter. They've set a high standard for those who will join the Coalition in the future.

Writer & Producer of Urban Acoustic in 1999 and founder of Hippies and Hillbillies in 2004, Jefferson's latest project, The Urban Acoustic Coalition, continues on a fresh, genre-defiant path.





Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes

Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes is an indie folk-pop band based around the songwriting of Scott Wolfson.

Featured at venues from the Lounge Stage at Falcon Ridge to NYC's Lower East Side Arts Festival to Jersey City's "Groove on Grove," and with an Honorable Mention in the 2012 Mid-Atlantic Song Contest, they have come a long way since their inception in August 2011.

Wolfson's songwriting transforms folk music's story-song roots into subtle theatrical narratives driven by toe-tapping pop melodies. The band's tightly woven arrangements turn Scott's songs into vivid pictures of love and death, three-verse dramas with a lingering soundtrack.

They've been called "musical scamps that hide immense talent behind their catchy songs," and once you hear Scott's haunting voice riding above the timeless interplay laid down by Chris, Jeremiah, Kirk, Matt, and Skyler, you might agree they don't hide it too well.

Barleyjuice

With six studio albums and a double CD collection in their sporrans to date, these five spirited yanks are currently one of the most beloved celtic rock bands in the USA.

Frontmen Kyf Brewer and Keith "Swanny" Swanson lithely cover lead vocals, guitars, accordion, harmonica, mandolin, bouzouki, and bagpipes. Both originally piped in the Loch Rannoch Pipe Band, and performed in Edinburgh's Millennium March for Prince Charles. While Swanson was once a member of New York's legendary Flailin' Shilaleghs, Kyf's been a pro performer since his first band, The Ravyns, produced the hit "Raised on the Radio" for the 1982 film Fast Times At Ridgemont High.

Backing Brewer & Swanson are a mad trio of characters: captivating fiddler Alice O'Quirke, whose classical roots stray to Irish & bluegrass in the middle of the most authentic jigs & hornpipes; drummer Barnes, a powerhouse of driving decadence; and hopping bassist Eric Worthington, musical snake-charmer of the deep and dulcet.

The ayes have it - Barleyjuice is a grand group of talented tunesmiths and prodigious performers, and the absolute best time you can have at a concert without removing your kilt.

Gas House Gorillas with Miss Laurie Ann and The Saddletones

The Gas House Gorillas often bring the show into the audience spurring fans to sing, dance and get wild. Cutting up with each other and the crowd, the Gorillas are more than a great band, they are great entertainers as well.

The band describes their sound as "Punk Americana". It encompasses a broad range of styles that include Jump Blues, Rock & Roll, Swing, Cajun Music and early Punk Rock. Artists as diverse as Wynonie Harris, Groucho Marx, Sam Cooke, Fats Waller, and The Ramones all coexist in the Gorillas' musical vernacular.

The Gorillas have been burning down clubs and festivals all over the country for the past eight years. 2013 will see the release of GHG's next album on Lanark Records, as they continue to bring their genre busting brand of mayhem to an ever expanding audience all over the USA.

The Gas House Gorillas are considered by many to be the most fearlessly uninhibited performers ever witnessed and a sure fire guarantee for a rippin' good time!





The Saddletones

One doesn't typically think of Irvington New Jersey as a source for traditional country song-writers. But when your Daddy raised you on a steady diet of Hank Williams records along with various swing and blues artists of the time, and your Momma played steel guitar, it's gets in your blood fast.

Miss Laurie Ann started writing songs at an early age and has developed an extensive collection of tight, well crafted songs that tell stories of love, come and gone. Her music evokes the era of Patsy Cline, Kitty Wells and Wanda Jackson. She refers to her style of music as "rock-boppin country". It's firmly based in the roots of country music with just enough rockin-rhythm to keep ya swingin.

Miss Laurie Ann has been performing with her band, The SaddleTones, for several years now. They continue to perform at honky-tonks, theaters, festivals and many other events along the east coast.
