Jesse Gimbel
Jesse Gimbel
Deconstructing and reimagining familiar themes, both lyrically and in composition, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jesse Gimbel proves that convention is only a restriction when it is left unexamined.

Sometimes a whisper, sometimes a hammer -- but never out of place, Jesse blends narrative and musical elements into a tonic of rhythm and melody which reveal their truths to each listener in a personal way.

Drawing lines of similarity to Death Cab for Cutie, the Decemberists, Elliott Smith, Sonic Youth and Wye Oak, fans of a rich, real, relatable cinematic pop will quickly connect with Jesse’s music. Through his experience as a producer and engineer, Jesse is fully immersed in his craft, continually refining his deep knowledge in the tools of his trade.

Bringing his sound to life on the stage, Jesse is joined by Philadelphia-based performers Robbie Simmons (bass), Andy Williams (drums) and Bianca Cevoli (vocals/keys).
Rachel Ana Dobken
Rachel Ana Dobken (drums, guitar, vocals, piano) has a knack for blending Indie-rock, Soul and Jazz. Described as “My Morning Jacket meets Lake Street Dive,” her music is raw and honest with a stage presence so emotionally captivating it's been compared to the likes of Jeff Buckley and Janis Joplin.

Dobken’s highly anticipated LP, When It Happens To You, dropped October 2018 features Dobken (producer/songwriter, drums, vocals, guitar, piano), Dan Haase (bass), Ryan MacLean (guitar), Andy Jackle (drums), Chris Dubrow (bass), Mark Masefield (B3 organ), Joey Henderson (guitar, vocals), Danny Clinch (harmonica) Ian Gray (trombone), Bruce Krywinski (trumpet), Denis Daley (bari sax). Recorded at Cedar Sounds in Oceanport, NJ.

All photographs for the record were taken by famed rock photographer, Danny Clinch who has worked with Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, My Morning Jacket, Ryan Adams and many more. Rachel works closely with Clinch as Musical Director at his Transparent Gallery in Asbury Park.
Erin Fox
Erin Fox has been performing in various outfits in the Philadelphia music community for nearly two decades before stepping out to record her own music. She began working with Westtown Entertainment's, Lee McCartney, in the winter of 2017 on her first full-length solo album, "Forbidden Youth" and the subsequent EP, "Your Joy" - released July 2018.
Her music has received national reviews and praise from various publications including XPN, Jump Magazine, and GetAlternative.
Fox's compulsive expressions encompass a dark ambiance of quirky chord structures, poetically intense lyrics, and distinctly haunting harmonies that amuse a vast range of emotion all the while continuously documenting that which is to overcome in this thing we share called life.
