STEREO LEAGUE (10:00 PM)
Formed in 2016, Stereo League is driven by the songwriting of childhood friends Alex Savoth and Dan King. Initially a studio project formed with the help of Engineer and Producer Eric Bogacz, the three began crafting songs and recruiting a cast of friends to fill in the gaps. Pretty soon, The League had grown to a dozen members and the result was their debut album “A Light on Each Side”. Often appearing live as a six-piece band, the group has incorporated influences from a plethora of genres, both modern and classic, refusing to be boxed in by conventional labels. The outcome is an ever-changing musical landscape that continues to evolve along with their line-up.
On their latest EP Endless Mirage, Savoth and King collaborated with the Synth & Soul record label and production crew Eraserhood Sound. The result is a timeless, shimmering collection of songs that tell evocative tales of loneliness and longing, set against the backdrop of Eraserhood Sound’s signature analog production. Stereo League, who was previously named Artist to Watch by Philadelphia's WXPN, believes this release to be the clearest and best representation of their vision to date--- delivering the soulful sound they have been searching for.
The collaboration with Eraserhood Sound continued in the fall of 2022 with two additional singles. "Seasons of Trouble" and "Operator, Please" were released on their second 45 and feature vocal performances by Turquoise Cobb who joined the band's line-up late in 2021. After some time on the road with ATO artist The Heavy Heavy, The League is back in Philly and preparing for an eventful 2023.
AJAY (9:00 PM)
Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, AJAY, encompasses the vast, experimental nature of modern sound design with the soul-drenched ingredients that defined Philadelphia for decades. The self-produced artist’s vulnerable falsetto vocals bring the nostalgia of 60s and 70s R&B into a new era of existential lyricism. While acting as touring guitarist/bassist to Alternative R&B artist, Orion Sun, as well as performing with local supergroup, Omar’s Hat, AJAY has been able to create and expand upon his own unique perspective.MOUSTAPHA NOUMBISSI (8:00 PM)
