Song Dogs
Song Dogs
Reminiscent of the Allman Brothers, The Band and Neil Young, the group includes six members, three of whom share the lead vocals, offering lots of variety from track to track on their debut album Wild Country. - Val Haller - New York Times

Song Dogs has gained national media attention for their debut full length album Wild Country, and notoriety for dynamic live performances. The New York Times released two live videos recored at Philadelphia-based Hotbox Studios as well as a new single, "Anyway," in November 2013. The six-piece crafts songs with warm harmonies, scorching guitars, and driving rhythms. WXPN said, "Part Neil Young, part Jackson Browne, Wild Country is a collection of songs blending rock, folk, and blues with a focus on storytelling."
-Julie Miller-WXPN
The Rivals
The Rivals have taken a dark and brooding mix of blues and rock and roll to the depths of the Philadelphia underground. In the bands first year it produced two albums; A stripped down, garage rock EP in Nomad followed by their first full length LP entitled Divine Lorraine.

The band consists of three songwriters Rob Swift, Wayne Gallagher, and Tom Williamson trading off lead vocal duties. The Rivals are evolving their hard-hitting brand of rock and roll, writing and recording a new EP due out this summer.
BRYANT EUGENE VAZQUEZ
Native of East Los Angeles, Bryant Eugene Vazquez has made Philadelphia his home for the last two years, having relocated from Norther Arizona. Praised, or criticized, for his prolific and borderline compulsive songwriting, Vazquez stands out as an artist compelled by the craft as opposed to the trend.

In his latest offering, All Damn Day/ The Greatest Hits, Vazquez serves up a collection of songs on the rougher side of 60s/70s acoustic pop, performing all duties including songwriter, backing band, and producer. At its core it is a lo-fi/DIY release, upon further dissection it becomes clear that ADD/THG is a fine amalgamation of rock/pop/punk/folk thrown together into a blender with spirits and cigarettes
