Lovers League
Lovers League
Reverend TJ McGlinchey and Dani Mari have joined forces to create the band Lovers League. The project is a combination of their solo songs performed as duets. Christopher Davis-Shannon & Dean Gorfti complete the sound of the band with their folk-pop rhythms. Reverend TJ McGlinchey's folk and blues flavor compliment Dani Mari's nostalgic pop vocal melodies. Their harmonies are natural and free flowing. They have been featured on XPN's The Key and Philly Music Local Hour and at the Philadelphia Folk Festival.

-"Lovers League is a sweet expansion on the theme of young, infatuated love."
XPN's The Key

-"Charming"
The Deli

"Lovers League, a duo of Reverend TJ McGlinchey and former Origivation (now That Music Mag) Acoustic Artist of the Year Dani Mari, make breezy, well-crafted country-folk that is perfect for summer afternoons. The focus here is squarely on careful, melodic songwriting and the gorgeous, Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons-inflected harmonies between Mari and McGlinchey, who both wrote songs for the project."

Levee Drivers
Levee Drivers
Levee Drivers' music embodies the sounds of old country souls being reborn into tomorrow's rock. Their music is a modern take on the story-telling of Johnny Cash, driven by early country and blues roots with a startling vocal rendition likened to a cross of Bruce Springsteen and Ryan Adams. Levee Drivers embrace an eclectic mix of sound that engages listeners of all ages and across many genres. They were named "Best of Philly Rising" 2007 by World Cafe Live. Levee Drivers also became the winners of the 2009 Beta Hi-Fi Festival hosted by World Cafe Live, a multi-night music competition with voting by the audience and a panel of judges. In 2010, Levee Drivers won the Deli Magazine "Best Philly Emerging Artist Poll" and came in 9th in the overall contest and were up again for the 2011 "Best Philly Emerging Artist". And recently in 2013, took home the Tri-State Indie Music Award for "Best Indie/Folk Americana Band" in the Tri-State Area.
Vilebred
Vilebred
Vilebred is a Philly-based experimental rock band, constantly churning out rich melodies, epic anthems and enough snark to make everyone a little uncomfortable. Following the footsteps of his brother Kurt Vile, Sam Vile is the musical architect that leads this circus, with influences ranging from The Violent Femmes to Radiohead. Band members include, Dug Gillan (bass/vocals) and Jeremy Dawson (Lead Guitar) of "The Nodd", Chelsea Sue Allen (keys/vocals) who is also a talented solo artist of the same name, and Will Donahue (drums/vocals) who, while members sometimes come and go, has been in the band since the very beginning. Some reoccurring members include Dean Gorfti (Drums) and Gene Isayev (sax and flute).
