The Accidentals
The Accidentals
Multi-instrumentalists, singer-songwriters, Katie Larson and Savannah Buist have created quite a name for themselves among music lovers of all genres. Described as, “A duo giving an edge to folk with unique instrumentation”, Z93 FM DJ, Matt Mansfield writes: “Combine musicality, originality, and melodic beauty with a welcome and unexpected bite to clever lyrics, and you’ve got Accidentals music..”
From 2012-2014, The Accidentals recorded three original albums, were guest artists on fifteen others, scored two films, and landed song placements in commercials, documentaries, and music compilations while playing over seven hundred live shows- before they graduated high school.

"One of the most ground-breaking musical experiences one might just have in a lifetime. If you're looking for a new indie folk band to get into, you couldn't do much better than The Accidentals.”

Jonathan Frahm, YAHOO Voices
Lily Mae
Lily Mae
20-year-old Philadelphia-based singer-songwriter, Lily Mae, raises a distinctively sublime voice in songs of true millennial grit. Her melodic knack-- granted limitless reign by a stunning vocal range-- is unrelenting, with a free-wheeling kind of brilliance and allure comparable to a young Joni Mitchell. Lily taps into the free-spirited nature of her generation by mixing alternative folk, rock, and jazz in her music. She is an unmistakable artist, as noted by music industry legend and beloved late president of Blue Note Records, Bruce Lundvall, when he said, "Lily Mae has a signature voice, writes excellent songs, and is a future star."

Lily’s forthcoming EP, “Closer,” boasts seven tracks and showcases her as a vocalist, songwriter, musician, and producer. Additionally, Lily recorded select tracks on the album with producer, Steve Brown (Laura Mvula, Rumer) at his studio in England. To celebrate International Women's Day this past March, Lily posted a surprise preview track, "Diamond," from “Closer” on soundcloud. Though unreleased, "Diamond" was WXPN's Pick of the Day that same day.

Lily cut her teeth working as an opener for Joan Osborne, Livingston Taylor, Ben Taylor, Nathaniel Rateliff, John Gorka, Dry The River, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Louden Wainwright III, Harry Shearer and Judith Owen, Ari Hest, Iain Matthews, Paul Shaffer, Chris Collingwood (Fountains of Wayne), Jay Brannan,The Marshall Tucker Band, Jenny Owen Youngs, Amy Helm, Cheryl Wheeler, Alice Ripley, The Claire Lynch Band, Sean Rowe, Amy Correia, Caroline Rose, The Kennedy’s and many others.

On the heels of Lily Mae's debut release, "Early Days," iTunes featured Lily as a New & Noteworthy singer-songwriter. For Folk's Sake called Lily "a younger Laura Marling before she was scorned by life"."Truly amazing," "prodigal," and "innovative" are all words that have been used to describe Lily's work. After attending Lily's show at Firefly Music Festival, tristateindie.com wrote that Lily has a "voice of gold."
