    Chris Kasper

    Alternative Rock

    Chris Kasper is an American songwriter with a distinct "timeless" sound that has gained him a loyal fanbase in his hometown of Philadelphia and around the country. He has released 3 solo records since living in Philly (FlyingBoy '06, Chasing Another Sundown '09, The First Hundred Years are the Hardest '11) and 1 collaborative effort with Bluegrass/Folk ensemble, The Lowlands (Bark and Twine '07). 

    With his 3rd solo record now available, you may rethink your idea of "singer-songwriter". Having toured with, and opened for, local heros Amos Lee and G. Love, as well as a ton of other national acts, Chris is setting his sights on touring full time. 

    "The First Hundred Years are the Hardest" was released on Nov 4, 2011, to a sold out show at one of Philadelphia's premier venues, World Cafe Live.

    Ross Bellenoit

    Alternative Rock

    Music fans already know Ross Bellenoit from his 2010 solo vinyl LP Eight Track Mind, and also as the stunning Telecaster slinger for the critically acclaimed Sweetback Sisters (Signature Sounds). He’s also lent his guitar skills to internationally renowned songwriters like Amos Lee (Blue Note), Joseph Parsons (Blue Rose), and Birdie Busch (Bar/None). More recently, Bellenoit has been enjoying a blossoming career as a record producer for other artists, having helmed successful debuts for songwriters Suzie Brown and Ginger Coyle, as well as imminent releases from Aaron & The Spell and The Sweetback Sisters. He’s also collaborating with Emily Zeitlyn (The Weeds) in the new band Divers.

     

    Each of the Home Songs EPs comprises six songs — self-produced and recorded at Bellenoit's home in South Philadelphia — with postproduction handled by Bellenoit's partners at Turtle Studios, Rob Shaffer and Jeff Hiatt. Volume 3 opens with an artfully aggressive re-imagining of Richard Thompson's "I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight"—the only cover song featured in the series. Bellenoit’s trademark pop craftsmanship (“Sink Or Swim”) and introspection (“Twisted Phrase”) are showcased, too, and the moody Knopfler-meets-Costello allegory "Currency", co-written with local folk favorite Johnny Miles, reflects on the collective ambiguities of life and art, concluding: “Nothing is the everything we need.”

    Levee Drivers

    Alternative Rock

    Levee Drivers' music embodies the sounds of old country souls being reborn into tomorrow's rock. Their music is a modern take on the story-telling of Johnny Cash, driven by early country and blues roots with a startling vocal rendition likened to a cross of Bruce Springsteen and Ryan Adams. Levee Drivers embrace an eclectic mix of sound that engages listeners of all ages and across many genres.
