The New Music Series

The New Music Series

This event was created to continue to pull together the scene here in Philadelphia. A scene that we all are proud to be a part of, dedicated to, and create within. Promoting the whole show, supporting all the bands/musicians, networking, and learning more about the people around you who share the same passion for music is what this night is all about. We appreciate each act sharing their music with us and putting their own stamp on the North Star's New Music Series.

Sonja Sofya

Sonja Sofya began singing as soon as she was old enough to speak, and memorized her parents' record collection at a young age, belting out Beatles and Elton John tunes with gusto. After being caught multiple times dancing around the house to recordings of Rossini, Tchaikovsky and Chopin, she began studying classical piano and never looked back. Drawing comparisons to Laura Nyro and Regina Spektor as well as Fiona Apple, Sonja Sofya's performances are both intimate and powerful, combining melodic and harmonic sensibilities scavenged from classic pop and concert music with lyrics reminiscent of folk and rock.

Jackie Paper

Philadelphia five piece psychedelic pop rock band with banjo, uke, and flute adding to the already eclectic sound.

Nicholas Piccari

Nicky P started in Philadelphia January 2012. He brings a relaxing, upbeat, Jack Johnson vibe.

The Externals

The Externals are a 2-piece acoustic duo from Philadelphia featuring Adam Rivera (guitar/vox) and Katie Feeney (vox/tambo/kazoo). The Externals describe their sound as acoustic new wave -- danceable and light-hearted with thick, welcoming harmonies. Some Externals songs are about love, some are about jellyfish... because music is life and life is fun.
