Maggie Mae
Maggie Mae
Strumming since she was a toddler, and writing since she can remember, singer-songwriter Maggie Mae describes herself as a “genre-fluid multi-instrumentalist,” pulling inspiration mostly from folk, blues, funk, and bluegrass. Backed by a stellar line-up of talented local musicians, her music is brought to an exciting & energetic folk/funk peak from start to finish. Her songwriting is heartfelt yet catchy, and can either touch your soul, or make you want to get up and dance. Described as poppy, polished, talented, & promising by XPN’s The Key’s John Vettese, Maggie Mae is definitely a force to be reckoned with on the Philly local music scene.
Erik Kramer
Taylor Kelly
Taylor Kelly has a voice that blends both the smoothness and rhythmic nature of jazz, soul, funk and hip-hop. Her tasteful songwriting tells tales of truth in hopes to inspire many to love, live and let go. Also a trumpet player, she proves the importance of a strong horn section and hot horn lines and strives for an instrumental-vocal approach, a rhythmic phrasing and an improvisation that is reminiscent of many of her trumpet playing influences (Chet Baker, Roy Hargrove and Miles Davis to name a few). Her musical stylings are reflective of Erykah Badu and Stevie Wonder as they possess what she believes to be the true essence of music- harmonic complexity, strong melodic contour and lyrical honesty with an absolutely relentless underlying groove. Her powerhouse 8-piece group has shared the stage with Moonchild, Becca Stevens, Bahamadia and Georgia Anne Muldrow and have released three albums, the most recent entitled "Do U Feel Me", released in June 2017 attracting attention from WXPN's The Key among others. Taylor was also an R&B finalist in this year's PHL Live Centerstage competition. Her and the band are currently working on their next full-length album entitled "Up Up and Away" that will be released sometime next year.
