Kicking Down Doors
Kicking Down Doors
Kicking Down Doors are the hot new Philadelphia area Americana band, combining the talented songwriting team of Autumn Walden (vocals) and Ernie Tokay (guitar & vocal), plus Michele Lynn (bass), Stacy Weathers (banjo) and Josh Steingard (drums), and what you get is pure musical magic.
Black Horse Motel
Black Horse Motel
Philadelphia-based Americana band Black Horse Motel conjures a sound that draws on traditional folk roots, along with many other influences, and ties it together with unifying vocal harmonies. Songs are built on the foundations of folk music, but are elevated by an infectious blend of the traditional banjo and mandolin, with guitars, strings, drums and voices. The resulting sound is dexterous, rich, accessible and toe-tapping.
Christopher Davis-Shannon
Christopher Davis-Shannon
Christopher Davis-Shannon's music is the essence of honest simplicity. Steeped strongly in the piedmont and delta fingerstyle blues traditions, his performances bring you back to a time of juke joints and smoky blues clubs of the early 20th century south. A modern vagabond he has toured the country as a performer the past 3 years, performing from Las Vegas to New Orleans and throughout the South.

Davis-Shannon performs a mix of blues and jazz standards, traditional spirituals and his own originals which are steeped in the age old styles he holds close to his heart. His intricate guitar work and plaintive vocals are infused with soulfulness which cannot be faked, and a respect for his predecessors which is rarely equaled.
