The Cliffs are a five-piece formed outside of Philadelphia whose style is derived from classic rock and jam bands.
Ezra Mae & The
"Perfect for a smoky, haze-filled cocktail lounge, Ezra Mae and The Gypsy Moon have an excellently refined grasp on backroom blues, with a touch of garage lo-fi for flavor. A rare treat, this DC-based foursome has good stage presence and the sort of sultry vocals that induce deep trances of wistfulness.. " -Jonathan Goodwin, The Deli Magazine Bandcamp

House Plant is a Psychedelic Funk band from Phoenixville, PA. This trio of musicians blends today's Neo-Psychedelic sounds with classic Funk and R&B grooves to create a spacial-atmospheric-funkatronic-probiotic-syncopation that will keep your head dazed while your feet can't help but move! Bandcamp
SolGazer is a band of brothers from the Philadelphia area, that came together to make psychedelic rock music with an identity crisis. They met previously through another band called “Holy Smoke!”, and due to creative differences with it’s founder, they decided to form SolGazer. Their frontman likes to prance around in an Indian skirt on stage, and says that their sound switches up from one tune to the next but holds an aesthetic that makes them stand out as no one.
Jon Smith's Voyages
Often compared to David Bowie, Queen, and Meat Loaf, the music from Jon Smith's Voyages encompasses theatrical elements throughout eclectic (and sometimes quirky) arrangements. The "band" is comprised only of Jon Smith, as he sings all vocals, plays over 15 instruments, and writes all the songs. With thoughtful lyrics, unique arrangements, and a dynamic vocal range, he's likely to captivate. Bandcamp
Singer/songwriter Hannah Frances is an artist from Philadelphia. Carrying a full load of soulful vocals influenced by the likes of Joni Mitchell, Laura Marling, and Nina Simone, Frances is a self-taught guitarist, naming Nick Drake, Bob Dylan, and Adrianne Lenker as major influences in her guitar styling and songwriting.
For now, Frances lives in Philadelphia but is a traveling soul.
Bazmati Vice is a spicy blend of funk, rock, jazz and blues, in recipes varying from song to song to keep things fresh and far-fetched. Drawing inspiration from such culinary giants as The Green Hot Chili Peppers, Bread Zeppelin, B.B. Chef, Fish, Andersoy .Paak, Drool, and many others, Bazmati Vice’s sound is a testament to both the musical tastebuds and the creative energy of each member of the group. Bandcamp
With roots in the Lehigh Valley, Philly based quintet Pool Radio is bringing a fresh blend of synth pop vibes to the table. Fusing airy, computerized melodies with distant aspects of pop culture, the group seeks to create a dreamy and nostalgic experience masked behind head-bopping tunes. Bandcamp
"With every note of every song, they reflect an image of the world as you know it. A mystical, energetic interpretation of the audience, of themselves, of the Universe. Each hypnotic tone brings one deeper into an ethereal shadow of all existence, and each song seems to ask us if what we see is reality or an expansive reflection of a domain that lies deep within us all." - The Artistic Vision Review Bandcamp
Elison Jackson is a garage–folk/ psychedelic rock band from Philadelphia, PA & New Haven, CT. Featuring basement organs, haunted lyrics and Neil Young-esque guitar jams, their sound has expanded significantly from its folk roots, moving forward with a strong foundation into blues, 80's analog synth, and prog-rock.
