Mat Burke, Song Dogs, & Levee Drivers

With the angst of a mid 20s punk rocker, the sorrow of a traditional country artist, and the free wheeling spirit of his folk heros. Mat Burke is unlike anything else. Pint after pint and song after song, he pours his heart and soul into every chord, every lyric and every shot of whiskey. Mats attitude and presence on stage demands attention and like it or not he is here to stay MBFU!

Song Dogs

Song dogs is a 6-piece americana rock band bringing prairie-heavy rock and railroad tone to the city of Brotherly Love. Formed in 2009, we released our first self-titled EP in 2011 and our full-length album Wild Country was officially released in January, 2013.

Song Dogs has been building an audience around Philadelphia and the Tri-state area for 3 years. Our full length album, Wild Country, was produced by Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Sheep Dogs, Toy Soldiers, Grandchildren, Man Man, Lotus) at Waking Studios in East Falls. Our self-titled debut EP was produced by Aurum Studios. The initial EP received radio play at 93.3 WMMR, 93.7 WSTW, Gas House, and Y-Not.

Levee Drivers

Levee Drivers' music embodies the sounds of old country souls being reborn into tomorrow's rock. Their music is a modern take on the story-telling of Johnny Cash, driven by early country and blues roots with a startling vocal rendition likened to a cross of Bruce Springsteen and Ryan Adams. Levee Drivers embrace an eclectic mix of sound that engages listeners of all ages and across many genres. They were named "Best of Philly Rising" 2007 by World Cafe Live. Levee Drivers also became the winners of the 2009 Beta Hi-Fi Festival hosted by World Cafe Live, a multi-night music competition with voting by the audience and a panel of judges. In 2010, Levee Drivers won the Deli Magazine "Best Philly Emerging Artist Poll" and came in 9th in the overall contest and were up again for the 2011 "Best Philly Emerging Artist". And recently in 2013, took home the Tri-State Indie Music Award for "Best Indie/Folk Americana Band" in the Tri-State Area.
