FLAT MARY ROAD
Flat Mary Road is an indie rock band founded in 2007 by Steve Teare. In the decades since, the band has refined and evolved their sound to bring a modern sensibility and production to its college rock influences like Dinosaur Jr., The Replacements and REM.
Flat Mary Road’s members have come and gone, returned, switched instruments, and marked major life events. The band and the music have served as an ever-present bond and backbone for navigating life in Philadelphia and the world today. Lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Teare’s singular voice and songwriting style evokes Teenage Fanclub, Modest Mouse and Big Star with influences ranging from Americana folk to power pop. Lead guitarist Alex Lewis delivers lush soundscapes and effects punctuated by aggressive and anthemic solos. Bassist Dan Papa offers riff-driven playing on a fretless bass, anchoring drummer Alex Irwin’s rolling full rhythms.
The members of FMR often lament that the band was born in the wrong decade. Its sound and style would be a more natural fit among Neil Young and the singer/songwriter wave of the 70s, the emerging alternative rock of Galaxie 500 in the 80s, or the country-infused stylings of Uncle Tupelo and early Wilco tracks in the 90s. Teare’s songwriting captures stories of people both real and imagined, often contrasting the burdens of modern life with the transcendent moments found in everyday beauty, art and conversation.
The band recently joined the Brooklyn-based label Whatever’s Clever, and the label released FMR’s latest album – Little Realities – which Pop Matters called their "Power Pop Breakthrough".
The Tisburys are an indie rock band from Philadelphia, PA led by singer-songwriter Tyler Asay. The band has released three full-length albums, most recently 2022’s Exile On Main Street, which combines influences of heartland rock and power pop hooks with jangly guitars and gritty lyrical storytelling. Their music has received praise and radio play from NPR, Little Steven's Underground Garage, and 88.5 WXPN, where they played the XPoNential Music Festival. They have shared the stage with national acts (Gin Blossoms, Jenny Lewis, Drive-By Truckers, Old 97's) and local Philadelphia heroes such as The War On Drugs, Baroness, and Dave Hause. The band recently completed their first East Coast tour and have begun recording their fourth LP, due out next year.
