Christine Havrilla and 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" into 2016 which will include long-time fan favorites as well as new songs with her current band, Gypsy Fuzz. Recording in numerous settings such as venues, living rooms, a recording studio with an live audience, in an old church, etc...these volumes will capture the spontaneous energy, soul-felt vibes and musical adventures that Christine brings to the stage, ANY stage! Havrilla, who has seven studio albums, five EPs, and over 15 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. Gypsy Fuzz/“Searching. Finding. Living.”, 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."
Christine is known for bringing her “well-built, catchy, smart tunes” (Upstage Magazine) to audiences everywhere, touring nationally as a solo act as well as with Gypsy Fuzz. After an inspirational time of being based in Portland, OR, Christine is once again back in the Philly area and frequenting such venues as Tin Angel, World Café Live, Steel City, Godfrey Daniels, Jammin’ Java, Burlap and Bean, Triumph Brewing Company, Rockwood Music Hall, Club Passim, to name a few.
Michael McKenna at Steel Notes Magazine shares, “This ambitious Philly native manifests her talent in certain ways that allows her to create eclectic music which will grab your heart and leave a lasting memory. Her Roots/Folk/Americana background coupled with that unique individuality that she possesses allows her to be a presence that steps into many genres and gives her the tools to crossover to different music formats. This album (Vol. 2 The Sunset Sessions) just defies description. It’s hot, tight, precise, and just plain kick-ass. If I was still programming radio, I’d be all over this! My recommendation is to go hear the band live, buy the CD, and experience what I have just heard. I give this TWO THUMBS UP!”

Porter & Sayles

Porter & Sayles, the collaboration of singer/songwriters Christian Porter and Regina Sayles, allure their audience with a crossover between Country, Folk-Rock and a side of southern crooning. Porter blends the raw folk tones of Wesley Schultz of The Lumineers, the pop styling of Jason Mraz and the soulful, warmth of Phillip Phillips. Sayles has a strong, lovely voice that at once calls to mind freejazz Joni Mitchell as well as smooth and smoky Karen Carpenter and rocking Sheryl Crow.

Prior to Porter & Sayles, Christian and Regina were established solo artists but after accompanying one another on respective solo shows, the musical chemistry between them was clear. Between eclectic instrumentation and lyrical collaboration, the duo creates a sonic fusion of pop, folk, rock and country.

Christian Porter jump-started his career after appearing on Season 4 of NBC’s “The Voice” and Regina Sayles attributes her success to over 100 shows a year and her very loyal and adoring fan base. After teaming up in tandem with their solo careers, Porter & Sayles officially took shape after they released their first original song “I’m Just Gonna Go”, which led to the opening of Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo’s 35th Anniversary Tour.

Their first full studio album, released in July 2016, is filled with substance, style and a spirit that captures their songwriting prowess. Since the release of their debut album, Christian and Regina have opened for The Steve Miller Band, Frankie Ballard and performed their original work all over the US, including Asbury Park, NJ, New York City, Nashville and Austin, TX during the iconic SXSW Conference and Festival last year.
