    I agree – Juston Stens (and the Get Real Gang) are one of the best new artists. Play more of them please.

      yes.. and he was also with Dr. Dog on the “Shame, Shame” album! He had a great year. Nice to see our locals do so well in and outside of Philly !!

    There are few artists performing today with the range of talents embodied in Liz Longley. Helen Leight has cultivated a fine taste in music during the many years she has been in radio.

    Kingsfoil is the type of musical talent that is lacking in todays mainsteam music machine. They played in the square in Lancaster and we were instantly drawn to their sound, and enjoyed the entire set. “On Our Own Together” is a solid collection of well written songs that we have enjoyed, can’t wait for the upcomming show at The Chameleon.
