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. It 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!”

Meredith Rounsley

With a warm, soulful voice and easygoing stage presence, Meredith Rounsley has been captivating audiences near and far for years. The strength of her latest release, Weapon, led to a "New and Notable" feature on Noisetrade and prompted a tour schedule that has taken her up and down the east coast.

Weapon came together across two continents as Meredith travelled between the USA and Australia for University. During that time, she honed her voice as a storyteller. She crafts songs that explore love, heartbreak, and distance with an unflinching honesty; from the rhythmic pop/soul of Weapon to sweeter ballads Falling Easy and Trying, the songs on this project resonate with sincerity.

Meredith’s original music has been recently featured on The Freeman Stage (host to national touring acts like Gary Clark Jr., Chicago, and Grace Potter), Delmarva Life, WBOC radio, and she has opened for regional bands at Headquarters Live.

Whether performing solo with her acoustic guitar or with a full band, Meredith’s original music and inventive covers resonate with audiences. “I believe that music should connect people, “ she says, “whether that’s over a story, a song, or glass of wine. I want people come away from a show feeling like they have been a part of a community experience.”

Meredith has focused on creating that experience by hosting unique, intimate events for listeners no matter the venue. She has played concerts in living rooms from Toronto, Canada to Georgia and curated a songwriter’s showcase in her hometown of Salisbury, Maryland. Her music has been featured on main stages and in packed cafes. Each time, she brings the stories, honesty, and connection that Weapon showcases effortlessly.
