Hop Along stepped into Miner Street Recording to experience a Shaking Through Session recently.  Arranged and recorded in just two days, “Sister Cities” features lead singer Frances Quinlan’s powerful and artistic delivery.  Stream and download the song below and learn more about the session here.

It’s a three-for-one in Folkadelphia sessions this week, featuring Christian Lee Hutson, Amanda Jo Williams and Kevin Killen.  All three sessions were previewed on last Sunday’s edition of Folkadelphia on XPN’s Singer-Songwriter radio, and you can listen to a podcast of the show here.  Below, stream and download “Tell Me You’re Not Telling The Truth” from Christian Lee Hutson and get the rest of the tracks here.

Mic Stewart stopped by for this week’s Key Studio Session.  The local MC won a 2012 national Red Bull Free Style competition, which led to an opening slot gig for Stewart at last year’s Roots Picnic.  His live session pulled tracks from his recent PEACEWORLD release – stream and download a “Peaceworld (Interlude) / Let it Bump / I’m Not From Brooklyn” medley below and get the full set here.

Holley Maher will release her new Euphorics EP on June 18th.  Her upbeat, sunny pop songs like “Golden” pair well with summer drives and afternoons by the pool.  Stream and download the song below.

Monday’s My Morning Download featured Icelandic singer-songwriter Asgeir Trausti.  His debut album Dyrd i daudathogn (In the Silence) is getting international attention, earning Trausti several Iceland Music Awards and getting a U.S. release on One Little Indian.  Stream and download “Going Home” from his Toe Rag Acoustic Session below.
