Philadelphia area native Christine Havrilla, after embarking on an ambitious new journey with her Gypsy Fuzz project in late 2011, is releasing a series of “Live Sessions” in 2014 which will include long-time fan favorites as well as new songs with her current band, Gypsy Fuzz. Recording in numerous settings such as venues, living rooms, a recording studio with an live audience, in an old church, etc… these volumes will capture the spontaneous energy, soul-felt vibes and musical adventures that Christine brings to the stage, ANY stage!  Havrilla, who has seven studio albums, four EPs, and over a dozen years of touring under her belt, continues to venture out under “Christine Havrilla & Gypsy Fuzz” as well as a solo artist, showcasing ALL of her music with new twists.  Gypsy Fuzz/“Searching. Finding. Living.”, produced by Larry Crane (Cat Power, Sleater-Kinney, Elliott Smith) and Christine, is described as “a blend of 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s rock delivered by the modern singer/songwriter.”

Christine is known for bringing her “well-built, catchy, smart tunes” (Upstage Magazine) to audiences everywhere, touring nationally as a solo act as well as with Gypsy Fuzz. After an inspirational time of being based in Portland, OR, Christine is once again back in the Philly area and frequenting such venues as Tin Angel, World Café Live, Steel City, Godfrey Daniels, Jammin’ Java, Burlap and Bean, Triumph Brewing Company, Rockwood Music Hall, Club Passim, to name a few.

04/03/15 – Mason Porter, The Quixote Project


Mason Porter:
www.masonporter.com
Philadelphia area folk-rock outfit Mason Porter has spent much of the last year touring in support of their 2014 release Home For The Harvest. Focused on vocal harmonies and simple acoustic arrangements, the album has drawn comparisons to the Grateful Dead’s American Beauty and Neil Young’s Harvest The song “That’s Alright By Me” received significant airplay from SirusXM station The Coffee House this past year and the album received support from the Folk DJ, Americana and AAA radio communities as well. The band is heading back to the studio in early 2015 to work on a follow up.

Mason Porter got its start in the 2006 informally as friends playing folk songs together at parties in West Chester, PA. The band consists of core members Joe D’Amico (mandolin, guitar, vocals), Tim Celfo (upright bass, vocals), Paul Wilkinson (guitar, vocals) and is typically augmented with drums and other instrumentalist at live shows. The band released their debut EP Mason Porter (2008) resulting in immediate praise. Les McIntyre of Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine wrote of this inaugural recording “The music of Mason Porter could be best described as alternative bluegrass…in this debut recording, the eclectic trio show musical prowess that is difficult to overlook.” Following up with full lengths Thunder In The Valley (2009) and a collection of traditional folk and covers Story Of the Rifle (2011), the band became a fixture on the regional scene. Through the process of writing, recording and constant gigging, the band developed its original sound blending folk, bluegrass, blues, country and rock influences into the unique personality that IS Mason Porter.

Mason Porter has solidified an enthusiastic fan base becoming staple favorites by playing many of the festivals throughout the region. In addition the band regularly performs in top venues and has shared the stage with acts such as Ralph Stanley, Peter Rowan, Larry Keel and Natural Bridge, New Riders Of The Purple Sage, Greensky Bluegrass, Charlie Daniels, Spirit Family Reunion, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Hoots and Hellmouth and more.

4/25/15 Andrea Carlson & The Love Police, Christopher Davis Shannon


Andrea Carlson & The Love Police!
www.andreacarlsonmusic.com

Born in Tennessee, Andrea Carlson moved all around the country growing up. In high school, the family settled in Chicago, and she attended college there too. First, she was a student of Fine Art at Columbia College. Later, she transferred to the American Conservatory of Music, where she earned her BM in Classical Guitar. A singer and lover of jazz, Andrea moonlighted as a vocalist throughout her studies with several different bands, doing music from the 20s, 30s, and 40s. This continued for 10 years, and she was able to perform in many of the top venues and festivals — a highlight was opening for the one and only James Brown!

After moving to the Philadelphia area, however, she began to perform solo, using her classical guitar skills to accompany her singing the standards of jazz. She soon found herself writing extra lyrics to the songs, and sought new ways to arrange them. Through this interest and experience she began composing songs of her own. In 2009, not long into her dabbling with songwriting, she entered a song writing contest…on a whim. She was a winner that year with the Philadelphia Songwriter’s Project! And then again, she won a song writing contest for the 2012 Montgomery/Bucks Music Awards with her song “Mysterious Moon”.

Andrea’s music is not only refreshing, but it is Retro, Jazzy, Bluesy, Romantic and most of all it’s fun! She enchants with sultry and playful vocals as she delivers melodies that sound like they belong in the American Songbook, and with her own spin! Her lyrics have been described as ‘quick and witty, in the vein of Cole Porter’ and her classically-trained guitar style as ‘channeling Django Reinhardt’! She has performed in a variety of venues throughout the Philadelphia area, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Chicago, and LA! A Five week European Tour began in June 2013, with stops at the Green Note in London, the Samois Django Festival in Paris, Songwriter’s Circle in Amsterdam, and featured performances at clubs in Barcelona and Edinburgh! In 2014, Andrea again toured Europe, adding Norway, Austria, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic to her list of perforances… as well as shows in Columbus, Cincinnati, Memphis, Nashville, and Indianapolis.
