Lili Añel (pronounced Ahn-Yell) considers music a calling. The six-foot tall, musical visionary grew up in New York City where she discovered her passion for music. As a child Añel remembers singing along to her mother's Cuban, jazz and pop standard albums. Her mother supported Lili’s desire to join the church choir and her grandfather's recognition of how much joy singing brought to her served to set her feet firmly on the path of a career in music.
Currently residing in Philadelphia, Añel returns with her highly-anticipated, latest recording "Another Place, Another Time" due out early 2017. "Another Place, Another Time" is an EP of 6 songs, 4 penned by Añel and 2 covers. Another Place, Another Time's songs were recorded live with minimal overdubs. "They lent themselves to being more open and having space" says Añel. Inspired by and drawing comparisons to Nina Simone, Joni Mitchell, Lili maintains her own style referring to her music as a hybrid of Jazz/R&B/Folk with a New York edge. Lili Añel once again pushes the boundaries vocally and as a songwriter continuing to electrify her audience as well as attract new fans.
The John Byrne Band is led by former Patrick's Head front man and Dublin native John Byrne. His first solo effort, After the Wake, was released to great critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic in 2010. With influences ranging from The Chieftains to Planxty to Bob Dylan, John’s songwriting honors and expands upon the musical and lyrical traditions of his native and adopted homes.
John and the band promoted the albums with a series of sold out shows at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia and many of the East Coast's premiere live acoustic venues. In the past year John and the band have sold out World Cafe Live on 4 separate occasions, in Feb 2011 bringing 500 jubilant fans to the storied Philadelphia venue.
"One of the few musical artists today who truly manage to be traditional and modern at the same time." - Philadelphia Inquirer
