Jeffrey Gaines: Singer-songwriter Jeffrey Gaines has gone against the grain since releasing his first folk-oriented album during the grunge rage of the early 1990s. Causing difficulties for radio programmers with his boundary-crossing music, however, Gaines spent a decade trying for a commercial breakthrough. Nevertheless, Gaines built a loyal following through passionate concert performances and a series of intensely personal albums, each based on his singular voice and distinctive song narratives. Given the acclaim for his songwriting, the success of his breakthrough hit in 2001, a cover version of Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes," was somewhat ironic.
Amy Faden
Amy Faden
Native Philadelphian Amy Faden has gained much recent notoriety playing an array of local venues, including the Tin Angel, Steel City, various Universities and the famous Downstairs room at World Cafe Live. At just 22 years old, Amy has caught the attention of many; from regional fans, to national record labels, opening for acts such as Teddy Geiger, Jeffrey Gaines and Holly Williams. The only way to describe Amy's music is beautifully honest, haunting and unique with the uncanny ability to evoke raw emotion, often bringing an audience to tears.
Ashley Leone

“Music is a unique language, but one that everyone can understand and relate to.” says Ashley, “It bridges the gap between words that can’t be said and feelings that can’t be evoked. To be able to speak that language and share that experience with people is the most incredible feeling.”

Ashley Leone is a Philly native whose hometown musical roots have influenced the R&B/Pop sound that defines her. “There is a plethora of rising artists now putting themselves and their work online, but there are certain hardworking stars who rise above the rest," says Acentric Magazine. "Ashley Leone is one of these artists, using her stunning songwriting abilities and her soulful voice, reminiscent of some of the greatest R&B artists in history, to skyrocket her to a position where she’s set to be a future superstar.”

Relocating to Nashville in 2014 was another big step for this 20 year old. “I’m constantly inspired by the world around me and my songs grow from a combination of personal experiences or something as simple as noticing something in nature around me,” Ashley said. “Some of the artists I gravitate towards for inspiration include Amy Winehouse, Lauryn Hill, Beyoncé, John Legend, Alicia Keys, Chance The Rapper and Kehlani.”

Songwriting is a very personal experience for Ashley. “My songwriting and live performances allow me to express my feelings in a way that in my own personal life, I would usually keep at arm’s length.” Ashley continues, “It is the best therapy for me to deal with my own emotions, share these feelings with others and make a human connection on a different level.”

In May of 2016, Ashley released her debut EP, SugarCoated to rave reviews. “Ashley Leone’s 'Sugarcoated' is the Pop/R&B EP you have been waiting for,” says Isabel Baldinger from Celebrity Secrets. Kat Cameron of Big City Thoughts says “Ashley Leone has done it and did it fresh. 'Sugarcoated' is complete feel good grooves, so good you could cry to them at the same time.”

When Ashley isn’t writing, recording, and playing live shows you will most likely find her in just about any coffee shop around town.
