M. A. Kingston
M. A. Kingston
After a of near death experience in 2010 in a good samaritan act MAK landed up in a hospital bed for several months, with nothing but reflecting on his heart’s desires and reflecting on his purpose to comfort him. The reflection turned to epiphany and a renewed vigor and dedication to his original craft, once again as a writer and frontman. MAK Feels content from this recounting and has since has carved a life of hard grafting behind the scenes. Thus MAK is performing his songs to share with others, to take them to the realms of outer space when down here on earth things are getting a bit messy. Now more than ever, he believes in the power of music to heal, to bring joy and to comfort.

MAK’s music ranges from lighthearted latin rhythm inspired narratives to haunting and ambient explorations into some of the most uncomfortable, yet eerily alluring corners of life that we try so hard to ignore. You can’t quite put your finger on it, but there’s a transformational tale in 'Outer Space", that will move you to another dimension. His is a calling that cannot be ignored. All previous works unpublished will form the foundation of your listening enjoyment with his first ever full studio album. The debut of a late bloomer…. MAK.
Hezekiah Jones
Hezekiah Jones
Hezekiah Jones is the musical vehicle for Raphael Cutrufello, a Philadelphia-based musician who has been recording with his bandmate—Brad Hinton, AKA the family of Jones’s—since 2006. ‘Their newest creation, In Loving Memory of oosi Lockjaw, will be released by Woodfarm Records in late fall, 2015.

Drawn to the cartography of imaginary worlds, Raphael began writing soundtracks to nonexistent science fiction films in middle school. He has written about everything from the inability to grow a proper beard to letters from 30 years in the future, to psychic mobility, or the lack thereof.

The perpetual sense of next that defines Raph’s lyrical sensibility has earned him loyal fans who reside in the sweet spot for an artist: they support Hezekiah Jones at live shows in order to re-experience the songs they know, while asking for new recordings to hear what will be. Like Hezekiah Jones, their community is along for the ride.

Raph grew up outside of Philadelphia, where he currently resides with his wife. His parents, a hairstylist and a bookkeeper/pie­maker, encouraged him to explore his craft, and he spent his early years studying piano and jazz composition. Although Raph’s music is often classified as folk or indie folk rock, he is a writer devoted to serving the songs’ impulses and inherent desires, and doesn’t feel obligated to fulfill or defy the expectations of a specific genre.
Morgan Pinkstone featuring Jason Jonik
Singer-Songwriter Morgan Pinkstone has been writing and performing original music across the Philadelphia area since 2009. As the songwriter and front woman for the band, Swedeland, Pinkstone established herself as a powerful vocalist with a way of spinning a phrase. Influenced heavily by 1960's era soul, classic rock, Americana and jazz, Pinkstone's original songs are a soulful mixture of rock and folk music.

"...Singer, Morgan Pinkstone's voice traces meandering, elegant melodies. There is much room for contemplation here, and Pinkstone's lyrics take full advantage, painting vivid moments and landscapes." Bruce Walsh, Metro (Philadelphia)
