In the 1960′s, pop music as we now know it was still young and excited, or rather, exciting. Since the digital revolution took recorded music by storm in the 80′s, many listeners feel that certain intangible qualities of soul and life have been gradually sucked out of pop music. We can’t help but agree. It is our mission to inject into our music the same honesty, soul, and edge that overflows from the 60′s and 70′s records that inspired us. We hope you will share in the inspiration. Fans of The Beatles, Elvis Costello, and/or Nirvana are sure to feel right at home listening to the music of Ray Long & John Cunningham.

8/22/15 No Good Sister, Hummingbyrds, Sunrise River Band


No Good Sister:

 www.nogoodsister.com

No Good Sister is a female vocal trio out of Philadelphia, PA.

In the Fall of 2012, a mom, a teacher, and a waitress, decided to turn their mutual admiration for each other’s music, writing and voices into a musical project that would both showcase them as individuals, but especially highlight their deep affinity for tight 3-part harmonies.

Meaghan Kyle, originally from Columbia, MD, got her musical roots from the great American songbook. At 16, she began a career as a professional theatre actress, but upon moving to Philadelphia nearly 8 years ago, she quickly found herself immersed in the thriving Philly music scene. While regularly singing back up vocals for singer-songwriters Shane Dodd and Christie Lenee, Meaghan joined up with the fine folks that make up the old-timey gypsy jazz folk group, A Fistful of Sugar. Enter Jess McDowell.

Originally from Newtown, PA, Jess McDowell cut her musical teeth at an early age by hopping from bluegrass festival to bluegrass festival, absorbing all the traditions of the Americana repertoire. She has performed as a backing vocalist for Brad Hinton, was half of the Philly folk duo Jessie James, and fronts her own vintage country band, The Wounded Healers. Jess joined A Fistful of Sugar a year into its course, where she first met Meaghan.

A musical bond was quickly formed, and they craved a project with a little more blues, a little more roots, and one that would have them up front. And with a third female voice. Enter Maren Sharrow.

Sharrow began her music career singing back-up vocals for several bands in her hometown of Detroit, MI, where she wrote the songs for her debut solo EP, Pretty Mess, released in 2006 to critical acclaim. Sharrow was featured on NPR’s Open Mic, and The Detroit Metro Times praised the songstress for her “angel wings and fearie breath,” calling her the “Patty Griffin of the D.” In 2008, Sharrow moved to Philadelphia to pursue her love of music. Now a stay-at-home-mom of two boys under the age of three, Sharrow fits in writing sessions between naptimes and after the boys go to bed. Maren is also getting ready to head in to the studio with her side project, The Scarlett Rebellion, to record their debut album Hollow Hearts which will be released sometime late in 2014.

Since the formation of No Good Sister, just over a year ago, they have performed at World Cafe Live, both in Philadelphia and Wilmington, The Tin Angel, Fergie’s Pub, The Fire, Underground Arts, Milkboy Philly, Ortliebs, Silk City to name a few, and appear regularly in the Four Seasons Lounge. In January of 2014, they were selected by World Cafe Live at The Queen as the Unsung Hearo standout performer of 2013, and won a slot in Hearo.fm’s 2014 SXSW showcase. They are currently recording their original music and will be releasing their first EP by year’s end.”


Hummingbyrds:
http://www.thehummingbyrds.com

The music of The Hummingbyrds is steeped in Americana, folk, roots rock, and the great singer-songwriters that have defined American music for over sixty years. But don’t let these labels fool you. Debra Buonaccorsi and Steve McWilliams have chemistry; and this chemistry allows them to turn their influences into original songs that reach the hearts of today’s listener. Perhaps the magic comes from their great arrangements that use acoustic guitar, stand up bass, accordion, pedal steel and percussion. Or maybe it’s the level of intimacy that flows from the voices of Buonoccorsi and McWilliams, as they follow, blend and inspire each other on stage.

Whatever it is, The Hummingbryds have figured out how to merge tradition with unique personality, and in doing so, they have created music that resonates deep within the souls of any audience.

8/28/15 Hank’s Cadillac, Rob Robinson

Hank’s Cadillac:
www.reverbnation.com/hankscadillac

Roots/Country/Classic Rock
Hank’s Cadillac have been playing Phiadelphia and beyond for ten years now! Our repertoire is unique: Roots music, with a twist of Country, Classic Rock, and a Jazz Standard or two. A typical set might consist of anything from The Beatles, Les Paul, CCR, Hank Williams, Little Feat, Louis Jordan, or Wilco. Something for everyone! We’ve opened for Crystal Gayle, Patty Loveless, Pure Prairie League, The Blasters , Bellamy Brothers & others. We’ve played bars from S. Philly to S. Jersey and back. And many a park gig, come rain or come shine.
Rob Robinson:

www.robrobinsonmusic.com
Rob’s interest in popular music took hold during his early twenties as his passion for drumming led him to form several original projects in and around the Philadelphia area. He would eventually go on to tour and record with roots based artist Ben Vaughn, who according to Rob had a profound influence on his appreciation of music. As Vaughn’s band toured the US and Europe extensively, Rob was introduced to a variety of new music and artists including the likes of John Hiatt and Alex Chilton. These influences had an impact on the direction of Rob’s music and ideas. His passion would soon shift from drumming to songwriting.

Rob began this new journey while continuing to drum for many artists around the Philadelphia area including Suzanne Gorman and Amy Carr. In 2009 Rob began work on his first solo CD and in the fall of 2013 “Catchin’ A Ride” was released. Since then Rob has taken his music on the road to many US cities including New York, Philadelphia, Norfolk, Nashville and Memphis. Rob has been a featured guest on NPR’s Acoustic Highway.

9/12/15 Brooke DiCaro, Joy Ike, TBA

Brooke DiCaro:
www.brookedicaro.com
Brooke DiCaro is a passionate singer/songwriter growing up in the
small rural town of Woodstown, New Jersey. She started off
singing in school choirs and musical theater along with studying
the piano. She realized performing was her passion along with writing songs on the piano. She later picked up the ukulele and became influenced by jazz and alternative writing styles often compared to Fiona Apple, Amy Winehouse and Regina Spektor.

In November 2013, Brooke independently released her debut
self-titled EP gaining recognition throughout the tri-state area,
playing a Live at 5 studio session at Philly’s top alternative
radio station Radio 104.5 and being spun on South Jersey’s WSTW
93.7 and Rowan Radio’s WGLS 89.7. Her sophomore EP, “Consequences” is to
be released in the Spring of 2015, recorded at Locustwood studios and mixed
and mastered by 9 time Grammy award winner Joe “The Butcher” Nicolo.

Now she plays weekly shows throughout the tri-state NJ/PA/DE
area where she does both original and cover gigs. She often plays
solo but can be seen with a back up band which consist of bass,
percussion, and saxophone. Some notable venues she has played are The Kimmel
Center for Performing Arts, MusikFest, Live @ 5 on Philly’s Radio 104.5,
Xfinity Live, Hard Rock Cafe, World Cafe Live (PA & DE), Love Park, North
Star Bar, Busstop Music Cafe, and has received airplay on South Jersey’s Radio
WSTW 93.7 and Rowan Radio WGLS 89.7.


Joy Ike:
www.joyike.com

 Born to Nigerian immigrants, Philadelphia-based independent artist Joy Ike’s music, voice, and writing have drawn comparisons to female musicians such as Corinne Bailey Rae, Regina Spektor, Norah Jones, and Fiona Apple. But her percussive piano-playing and soaring vocals give homage to her African upbringing. Leaving her career as a publicist in 2008, Ike has since played hundreds of shows across the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwest. She has had the opportunity to share the stage and open for Jeffrey Gaines, Cody Chestnutt, Denison Whitmer, Deas Vail, Butterfly Boucher, Serena Ryder, Tyrone Wells, Najee, Allen Toussaint, and Ken Whitely & The Levy Sisters to name a few. As a singer/songwriter who purposefully refuses to be pigeon-holed into any one specific genre, Ike’s path has consistently taken an “anywhere for anyone” approach playing for intimate audiences in coffeehouse, Universities, house concerts, churches, and small theater settings. A write-up on NPR’s All Things Considered says “The depth of subjects she tackles in her poetic lyrics are perfectly complemented by a unique blend of neo-soul, with just the right dash of pop…a truly compelling act to watch in person, with the ability to create an intimate setting in locations big and small.” A segment on NPR’s World Cafe (December 2013) featured Ike as one of Pennsylvania’s up-and-coming artists.
