There’s more to Eilen Jewell than meets the eye. National Public Radio, on its listing for Song of the Day, says, “She’s got a sweet and clear voice with a killer instinct lurking beneath the shiny surface.” USA Today describes her as “Dark and haunting, but alluring just the same . . . Give me more of that voice.” Her voice certainly stays with you, a captivating blend of wild and under control. Her music encompasses a wide range of traditions, from the folk and jug band leanings of her first few albums, to the vintage country stylings of her Loretta Lynn tribute, to gospel, garage rock, and Chicago blues. Her latest album, Queen of the Minor Key, features 14 originals, ranging from torch songs to roadhouse rockers. The website allmusic calls the album “a reminder that this music at its best speaks to the wayward impulses of the human heart, and Eilen Jewell embodies that quiet, insistent voice as well as anyone making music in the 21st century.”

Eilen grew up in Boise, Idaho, started busking on the streets of Santa Fe when she was in college, and spent some time in Southern California before moving to Boston, where she’s currently based. Along the way, she’s put together a marvelous band, featuring Jason Beek on drums, Jerry Miller on guitar, and Johnny Sciascia on upright bass. Their music sounds good on the surface, and then it gets under your skin, and you realize that it holds hidden depths of dark humor, raw emotion, and gospel soul.

Milton
Milton has been creating since he was born. Growing up around music in Bowie MD, whether it be his parents records or Sunday Mass, he chose music to express himself at the age of 16. Since then he has spent his time studying the craft when he joined forces with powerhouse music producer and all around prodigy Rob Devious (Rob D) in 2013 to help capture the sound of a new era of R&B/Hip Hop music. Together, they have made "Simple Pleasures" Milton's debut album due out in December.

Although a MD resident, Milton has called Philadelphia home for his music career. Gracing stages such as the TLA, The Hard Rock Cafe, The Blockley, The Trocadero, Underground Arts, Kungfu Necktie, the Boom Room and Voltage Lounge among many others. Milton has shared the stage with MMG's Wale and Fat Trel, played with The Roots members in Brooklyn, and has a very promising amount of shows and festivals planned for this summer. He has also brought his show to NJ at the Le Grand Formaj, DE at Mojo Main, Lit Lounge in NYC, and Reading, PA at Reverb. He will be playing an OFFICIAL SXSW stage this year, headlined by the best artists from Philly, most notably Freeway!
