Philadelphian indie folk lead by Tess Emma. After deciding she no longer wanted to fly solo on stage, Tess released her self titled EP in 2014 and then kicked off her new project "Lou". Shortly after the release, Lou started making waves in Philadelphia. With members of a blues band and an acoustic folk singer, the members of Modern Colour and Tess Emma left behind their comfort zones and followed influences such as Lucy Rose, early Bombay Bicycle Club, and Daughter. They were recently nominated for NJ Indie Folk Band of the Year by Tri-State Indie, and are releasing their first set of new tunes in early March 2015.
Native Philadelphian Amy Faden has gained much recent notoriety playing an array of local venues, including the Tin Angel, Steel City, various Universities and the famous Downstairs room at World Cafe Live. At just 22 years old, Amy has caught the attention of many; from regional fans, to national record labels, opening for acts such as Teddy Geiger, Jeffrey Gaines and Holly Williams. The only way to describe Amy's music is beautifully honest, haunting and unique with the uncanny ability to evoke raw emotion, often bringing an audience to tears.
Amy Saul Zerby & Friends
Amy Saul-Zerby's history of reading poetry in front of Philadelphians dates back to 2013. While reading weird little love poems to strangers on the rooftop of the Ox Warehouse that summer, she realized that this strange and impractical occupation was, quite unfortunately, the only thing she truly wanted to do. In the years that followed, Amy's work was published in TheNewerYork, Painted Bride Quarterly, and The YOLO Pages, an anthology of contemporary poetry curated by Steve Roggenbuck. She is managing editor of the spoken word-based publication Voicemail Poems, and her first full-length collection of poetry is forthcoming from Punk Hostage Press. Amy's work has been described as a mashup of Wes Anderson and Marie Howe, and she can regularly be found reading it at bookstores, galleries and bars around the city.
