The End Of America
The End Of America
The End of America is a band of friends, singers and travelers who blend three-part harmony with rock and Americana. The Philadelphia-based outfit masters a style that resonates with fans of Ryan Adams, CSNY and Dawes.

All frontmen of previous bands, Brendon Thomas, James Downes and Trevor Leonard met on tour in 2005. They went on to form a trio that highlights their vocal chemistry and captures the raw honesty of their performances. TEOA recently released their debut LP (self-titled), a follow-up to their previous EPs, Shakey and Steep Bay.

The new album was written in the wake of a series of close calls: one involving a van accident on tour, and the other when drummer Jarrod Pedone was involved in a hit-and-run that left him in a coma for months. Fortunately the band walked away unscathed, and Jarrod made a stunning recovery. The following winter all members relocated to Philadelphia to write and hone their new sound. Joining forces with longtime friend and engineer Dave Downham in the producer’s chair, the band tracked 11 new songs at nearby Gradwell House Recordings in Haddon Heights, NJ.

With the album released, the band is gearing up for a full year of touring. Anyone who has seen TEOA can attest to their powerful harmonies and stage presence.

The End of America has performed at SXSW, Savannah Stopover and the Baltimore Folk Fest. They have shared the stage with Larry Campbell, David Bromberg, Gary Louris (The Jayhawks), Simone Felice (The Felice Brothers) and joined Beck in Los Angeles to perform for his Song Reader sheet music release show. The trio's appearance at the show aired live on KCRW and received praise from Spin, Filter and The Hollywood Reporter
Former Belle
Former Belle
Since its start in the winter of 2010, Former Belle has taken on many different outfits, all led by frontman, Bruno Catrambone. The project self-released a full band EP entitled Sounds From The Ground. Former Belle backed their first release with multiple regional tours as well as a five-week European tour. This helped to shape the project into its new-found home of both full band and solo performances. After a year-long break while Catrambone pursued his other project, CRUISR, Bruno’s downtime between tours, as well as writing on the road, led him to collect new songs mixed with revisited old material to form a new EP out on April 8th on Randm Records.
Dogs On Main Street
DOGS ON MAIN STREET, now calling the streets of Philadelphia home, blends the blues of Appalachia with the gritty sound of early rock and roll, to create music "drenched in Americana, from the will wail of the harmonica to the thick drawl of the vocals." (Searching Through The Drivel) With 2014's LP release "Reckoning" Mac Rowe, the one man behind Dogs On Main Street, situates himself amongst the giants who came before him, or at least continues to claw tooth and nail to get there. DOMS has performed at everything from shanties and basements to The Bowery's Mercury Lounge and The Bitter End, but "he only continues to sound less raw and more poignant." (I Could Go On And On)
