6/06/15 The Deb Callahan Band, Eric Sommer

The Deb Callahan Band:

http://www.debcallahanband.com/

Philadelphia’s blues and soul drenched  vocalist and songwriter Deb Callahan grew up in the Boston area but has been a mainstay on the mid-Atlantic music scene since the late 90’s.  During this time she has gained a reputation for writing creative blues, soul and roots influenced original music and using her powerful, expressive voice and engaging stage presence to deliver an exciting live show. Her 2002 debut CD “If the Blues Had Wings” was featured as the hot debut in the October/November 2004 issue of Blues Revue Magazine.  Blues Revue referred to her as the next Bonnie Raitt and raved “Philly’s Deb Callahan has the pipes, the songs and the raw talent to graduate to the next level”.  Her fourth and most recent CD, entitled “Tell It Like It Is” was released in October 2010 which debuted at #19 on the Living Blues Radio Chart and received regular airplay on the XM/Sirius Bluesville radio channel as well as blues and Triple A radio stations around the country. The songs are blues based with gospel, soul, rock and jazz influences and deal with a range of topics and issues such as experiencing love and joy, finding spirituality, giving voice to the experience of homeless children without family support and how hard it can be to make life changes.   Doing  social work in the heart of Philadelphia would be a good place to learn  about life’s hard knocks and this urban school ground taught  singer/songwriter Deb Callahan well.   Her rich, honest and soulful tunes resonate with listeners and run the gamut from soulful ballads, to upbeat, dance oriented grooves.

Eric Sommer:
www.ericsommer.com

Eric Sommer is coming back to this remarkable Listening Room (guitars in hand and a pocketful of new songs ready to go) on Saturday, June 6th… show time around 7pmish. He’ll be in Pittman to begin a 30 show run up the East Coast, including the Rosendale Street Fair and The Blue Mermaid in Portsmouth, NH.

Eric is just back from 15-20 dates in Texas, from Dallas to Marfa and Austin, and The White Elephant in Ft. Worth. During this trip Eric recorded 5 new songs for the next record in Muscle Shoals, Alabama at 48 West Studios with Tommy York at the boards. A prolific writer, Eric recently completed his third collection of prose titled “Blue Turtle”, and has been putting the finishing touches on a new record. “Europe, Europe” and “Red Queen” reached over 3.4 million plays and downloads in the EU this past winter and spring… and Eric just reached a publishing and licensing agreement with SESAC in Nashville, TN.

Heavily influenced early on by Pete Seeger, Phil Ochs and Bob Dylan, Eric spent much of his beginnings in the Boston Folk Scene, then took to road touring with the likes of Little Feat, John Mayall, David Bromberg and John Hammond, Jr., ending up in Europe for three years with Nick Lowe, Dave Edmunds and the developing Brit Pop scene… Since then Eric has been touring and playing constantly, perfecting his remarkable guitar style and keeping true to his musical roots. “Rainy Day Karma” is available at local record stores and online at CD Baby and iTunes.

6/19/15 Morning River Band, Mother, Driftwood Soldier

Morning River Band:
https://morningriverband.bandcamp.com 
On Friday, May 29, Philadelphia’s Morning River Band released their fourth record digitally and on limited-edition cassette. The first studio recordings of Morning River Band’s current and definitive lineup of Denny Barron, Jeffrey Fields, Arthur Herrmann, and Joe Idell, Abyssal Channeling represents a rebirth for the band. Inspired equally by encounters with George Jones and Jim Beam, Morning River Band spins simple songs of drinking, dying, and divorce, and tells tall tales of broken bodies, broken hearts, and broken minds; it is that rare forward-looking record that turns to the past to document life not as it was, but as it is.


Mother:
https://motherfromphiladelphia.bandcamp.com  
Mother is a four piece from Philadelphia. We play an amalgam of Psychedelic Rock, R&B and American Roots music. Two sets of long term creative partners joined forces in early 2014 to create a sound that could only be described as “motherly”.

Driftwood Soldier:

http://www.driftwoodsoldier.com/

Growling and crooning, muttering about lost love, brimstone, and the glorious view from the underside of a rusty world-order, Owen holds the rhythm on mandolin and foot percussion. Bobby takes the opportunity to stretch bass notes into lyrical vines that vibrate somewhere north of your liver and flower unexpectedly at night.

Joining forces in Philly late in 2013, they’re coming soon to a bar, living room, alley or rooftop near you.

07/18/15 Blue Wave Theory, Lost Art

Blue Wave Theory:
www.bluewavetheory.blastbeat.net

Blue Wave Theory is an American instrumental rock band formed in 2007 in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. The group’s sound is rooted in surf music of the 1960s, but delves into many genres including elements of garage, punk, psychedelic, progressive, funk, reggae, and space rock. An accomplished group of musicians whose versatility is as broad as their personal backgrounds with decades of musical influence, ranging from Dick Dale, Link Wray, X, Ramones, King Crimson, and Rush, to the funk of Dennis Coffey and psychedelic surf of The Mermen. The band’s music is entirely instrumental with Steve Rabeler on guitar, Kevin Stamper on bass, and Rob Wolleben on drums. Guitarist Bob Trimble recently joined forces with the band for live shows and recordings…transforming the power trio into a power quartet! The insistence for each musician in this trio to keep true to their personal styling and inspiration gives Blue Wave Theory a distinctive stamp of uniqueness and creativity.

Blue Wave Theory and their hectic eclectic brand of instrumental surf rock has shared the stage with the legendary Dick Dale as well as some of the finest east coast surf bands including Mister Neutron, The Octomen, The Coffin Daggers, and The Supertones. The band regularly performs at some of the coolest music venues in Philadelphia, New York City, and New Jersey including the Sellersville Theater, World Cafe Live, The North Star Bar, The Record Collector, The Rotunda, and Otto’s Shrunken Head. In addition, Blue Wave Theory plays at several east coast music festivals including Bethlehem Musikfest, Asbury Park Surf Music Festival, Twangstock, and Surfapalooza.

Magnatune Records released the eponymous Blue Wave Theory album in 2010. A second album “Superstorm” was released in 2013. Individual songs have appeared on instrumental surf compilations including “Sympathy for the Reverb” (coming in 2014), “Radical Waves” (2012), and “Off the Deep End” (2011). Blue Wave Theory’s music has also been licensed for a wide variety of purposes including Samsung product advertisements, DIY Network television broadcasts, Red Bull Media House productions, and hot rod DVD’s.
