Fo Daniels
Fo Daniels combines the raw intensity of a rock and roll band with a singer-songwriter’s attention to lyrical and emotional detail. With a general disregard for trends and genre restriction, Daniels and his band blaze their own trail, quickly growing their diverse catalog of records- which contains a wide variety of influences but is united by the common themes of originality, heart, and rebel spirit. Their tenacious touring schedule has left audiences deeply inspired up and down the East Coast, spreading the word about a sound which can be best described as “pretty and gritty”.

The Upsides

The Upsides are a 4-piece rock act based in New York City, consisting of brothers Matt and Dan Fullam with longtime friends Matt DaSilva and Hart Mechlin. The band creates a distinct blend of “shimmering surf rock” (Our Sound Music) paired with more overdriven guitar work reminiscent of the early aughts rock revival. The result is a sound that is “accessible, unique, and timeless” (Glide Magazine).

Their self-titled debut album was released in May of 2024, supported by a hometown release show at Mercury Lounge. Will Oliver of We All Want Someone to Shout For described “Jump In”, the first single off the album, as “channeling elements of classic New York City rock with a garage rock sensibility, with 90s jangle pop and rock guitar work that feels like a blend of The Strokes and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever. It’s impossible to resist its delightful nature and charm.”

The album’s ten tracks are a succinct yet dynamic collection of tunes that offer everything from the My Bloody Valentine-influenced “We Need More Data” to the wistful and downtempo “No Particular Hours” which opens up to an 80s ballad-esque guitar solo while also channeling modern indie acts like Slow Pulp. Drawing from an array of influences, The Upsides’ authentic production style, genuine lyricism, and recently newfound willingness to go for a big hook are the common threads tying together this first full-length offering into a captivating and refreshing listen.

Ridge Runners (Acoustic)
Ridge Runners are a Philadelphia rock band founded by Coleman Rigg. The band is fresh off the release of their second LP “A Place I Thought I’d Never Be”. The album spans far across the rock genre, from pulsing, riffy rock, to softer, meditative sounds of introspection. With the album, Rigg tells a story of hope and optimism as someone who travels through warping time, self realization, and love and loss. The band continues to tour and promote the record through the Eastern US.
