A sixteen year old Germantown Academy High School junior from
Blue Bell, PA, Ashley Leone has hit the local music scene running. Having already performed over a hundred shows in the best area venues such as World Cafe Live, MilkBoy Coffee, Puck and New York's legendary Bitter End, and having recently sold out the Tin Angel, Ashley is already a seasoned performer. Although clearly centered in the Singer Songwriter genre, Ashley always adds slightly different flavors to her musical journeys: definitely some R&B, a little Pop, a spattering of Soul now and then. Whether you're listening to
Ashley sing her popular original songs or putting her wonderful style into some well known covers, the goose bumps tell you this young lady is really something special.
"Orion Freeman is a singing, songwriting, guitar-playing seeker from the woods just beyond the mortar and bricks of Philadelphia. His souled-out, reggae-infused, flamenco-tinged, bluesy folk-rock aspires to move: your shoes; your heart; the cobwebs, so as to peer into your soul. Hovering somewhere within the chasm between the worldly and the divine, his music is an intimate glimpse into the spiraling states of freedom and folly, playfulness and prayer.
Sarah Donner is an indie folkpop star who has embraced the catlady inside her. She works the stage with a powerful vocals, punchy guitar, and a candid stage presence that is all Sarah Donner. She is a graduate of Westminster Choir College. After stretching her legs with musical theatre, she picked up a guitar, abandoned her classical roots, and started rocking out (with fantastic breath support).Sarah
Donner's cold New England heart was transplanted to New Jersey where she fosters kittens when not on tour.
"Sheltered Turtle" is Philadelphia-based, multi-instrumentalist Henry Nam's solo project where he performs autobiographical compositions on an acoustic guitar, treating the instrument more like a piano and drum than a six-string strummer. Nam is currently recording his debut solo album, "Runaway Sketchbook" at the Fleisher Art Memorial Sanctuary in Philadelphia, PA under the guide of engineer Dan Drago (The Way Home) and acclaimed guitarist Trevor Gordon Hall (CandyRat Records artist). "Runaway Sketchbook" will be the
first product of a year-long project to record and press three years of original compositions.
Tim’s strong stage presence and honest approach to songwriting are both reflective of his own unique style, and reminiscent of those who have inspired him. He is driven by his experiences, and he values an open-mind. Although he has been on this journey for a number of years now, Tim is still a young songwriter, looking forward at a vast, exciting future ahead of him.
Vox earned a degree in songwriting from the Berklee College of Music. Since introducing the ukulele to her songwriting in 2003, Vox never thought twice about the 4-stringed underdog. She has become known among the ukulele community for her refreshingly modern and playful ukulele technique and songwriting. Since 2006, Vox has been a highlight at ukulele festivals around the world, where she both performs and gives workshops to ukulele enthusiasts. Her music has been featured on NPT, TV and in independent films. She has also appeared on the Jay Leno show.
