Ortolan
Ortolan
Ortolan are a female indie pop quartet comprised of three sisters and one sister-in-law. The group began taking shape in 2007, when songwriter Stephanie Cottingham played a church coffeehouse with the help of a friend. The audience's response was encouraging, and Cottingham began making additional appearances at the coffeehouse, often with her two older sisters -- drummer Lara and bass player Brianna -- playing along. Ken Fabianovicz caught one of the girls' performances and introduced them to Daniel Smith, a local producer and founder of the New Jersey-based label Sounds Familyre. After recording some demo material in Smith's studio, the group added a fourth member, keyboardist/vocalist Jill Cottingham, and properly joined Sounds Familyre's roster.
Acton Bell
Acton Bell is a 7-piece Americana/folk/pop band and winners of the Philly Rising Open-Mic competition at World Cafe Live. Echoing bands like The Decemberists and The Civil Wars, Acton Bell recently released "La Mer Cruelle", which features an aching cover of The Cure's "Boys Don't Cry" and originals by Clifford Hall.
