Deadfellow’s lead singer and songwriter is Hayden Sammak. He’s been in and around the local music scene for a few years, and Deadfellow is a project that’s about a year old. With a vocal style reminiscent of Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees), “Machine” is from a new EP, Love Songs for the Contemporary Listener and was recorded at Kawari Sound with some of our favorite locals including Ross Bellenoit, Matt Muir (who co-produced the EP), and Michael Stec.
The six song EP balances heavier guitar jams and lighter, slower, down-tempo ballads. They show Sammak’s adeptness at building songs with emotional intensity regardless of the volume, and the EP is a beguiling introduction to a talented young Philly musician”. - theKey.wxpn.org Bruce Warren
WXPN’, 2017 ’s first Gotta Hear Song of the Year is a heavy, dirgey rock epic, “Machine” by Philly locals Deadfellow, a relatively new addition to our local music scene.
Sixteen Jackies have been lurking in the basement of Philadelphia since early 2016 building a sound that while often nostalgic, defies easy categorization. With their first EP "Movie Was Bad," they've unveiled an offbeat pop sensibility which draws to mind both the manic spirit of the Talking Heads and the aching balladry of Roy Orbison. By setting the intimate details of singer Jody DeMarco's singularly queer experience against a soundscape which takes cues from the atmosphere of classic horror films, Sixteen Jackies have produced a unique set of torch songs for misfits and weirdos of all kinds.
Fake Fight is a musical group that emerged as the result of a collaboration between local singer-songwriters Michael Stec and Jordan Ramirez. They began playing and writing together in 2016, and quickly established a catalog of original songs that range from dreamy-folk to funk and hip-hop. In 2017, they recruited guitarist Brendan Brisk and drummer Stephen Stec and began performing as Fake Fight. Their first EP is due for release later this month.
