Red Martina
Red Martina
Hailing from Philadelphia, Red Martina is a collaboration of diverse storytellers: Producer Stoupe formerly of Jedi Mind Tricks, multi-instrumentalist Ish Quintero, Emcee Noesis of Philadelphia Slick, and vocalist Hayley Cass.

Spawned by a production team led by Stoupe, Red Martina's sound is a mix of hip hop, downtempo and singer-songwriter ranging from soft ballads to lush head nodders.

The alliance of Stoupe's production and sampling skills combined with Ish's live instrumentation gives Red Martina its eclectic sound. These stories come to life with music that expands on precise cuts, driving drums, orchestral samples and classical guitars.

Red Martina's debut album Intransit was released this year, with a follow up project, Come On Home, set to drop this fall on Badtape Music.
Leaf Eater
Leaf Eater
Leaf Eater is a musical collective assembled by American songwriter and multi-instrumentalist John Shields. Growing up in the Philadelphia area gave Shields plenty of room to plant his musical roots. Dubbed Leaf Eater because of his height (6 feet 5 inches), Shields would go on to front bands that would share the stage with other notable and respected bands such as Slightly Stoopid, G. Love &
Special Sauce, Grace Potter, Steel Pulse, The Heavy Pets, and John Brown’s Body.

Beginning early 2014, Shields started work on what would become Leaf Eater. It began as a form of therapy for Shields. “I have a system where if I mess up, or if I’m feeling regret, I try to get a song out of it. It’s not only therapeutic for me, but it often paints a situation that most people have experienced themselves.” This is what drew the attention of producer Chris DiBeneditto (Slightly Stoopid, G. Love, The Expendables, The Movement), who teamed up with Shields and former bandmate Samuel Morgan (Long Miles) to co-produce the first full length release. “When I first heard these songs John had written, I was surprised at the high level of song writing and the way he had produced these original demos with so much emotion and thought. I had to be part of it. John has a clear vision of what he hears/wants and I was kind of there to help him get those sounds and visions into a mix.”

With influences from contemporary artists such as Beck, Damon Albarn, the Flaming Lips, Citizen Cope, and older artists like the Beach Boys and Otis Redding, Leaf Eater combines melodic songwriting with a groove-based, hip-hop-inspired production, creating a sound that finds its way into your subconscious after one listen!
Dewey Decibel
Dewey Decibel
Philadelphia-based visual artist and rapper Dewey Saunders a.k.a. Dewey Decibel released his debut EP, Son of a Beach on indie collective Bold New Breed Records.
