mattew ryan - Artist

Matthew Ryan grew up  just south of Philadelphia in Chester, PA. He recently bought a house on a hill in Tennessee. His early loves and influences were The Clash, Doc Martens, The Replacements, MLK, Paul Buchanan’s voice, blonde hair & Bob Dylan. He learned to play guitar when he was 17. mattew ryan sceneFrustrated he couldn’t learn other people’s songs, he started writing his own soon after. His songs tend to be about girls, socio-political issues, people on the edges, breakups, brotherhood, hate, love, fighters and hope. Sometimes all in the same song. He prefers to think of them as songs for humans. He’s released 10 records since his first record, May Day, was released in 1997.

Jessie Murphy – In The Woods

Jessie Murphy in the Woods

Jessie Murphy In The Woods is a trio that combines indie pop with dark humor and classical sensibilities. The band consists of Marcia Webb (flute, pan pipes, and clarinet, Wurlitzer electric piano, and vocals), Amy Stratton (horn, flute, vocals, percussion), and Jessie Murphy (lead vocals, acoustic guitar). All three are accomplished musicians in their own right but together they create a unique brand of soulful songs. There’s an infectious joy in Jessie Murphy In The Woods’ new album, Eight Belles, that sweeps the listener in its wake. By turns ethereal, mystical, spiritual and haunting, the New York City based trio plays with a sense of wonder and discovery that makes them one of 2009’s singular new acts to watch.jessie murphy in the woods - eight belles
