Hezekiah Jones perform "Cannonball" for Sofar Sounds

Let it not be said that Philadelphia doesn't enjoy a close knit musical community. Our own Hezekiah Jones are seen here performing "Cannonball" at a secret performance in Philadelphia in November 2012 as part of Sofar Sounds Philadelphia's one year anniversary event!

Find out more on Hezekiah Jones on their artist page, you can also find Sofar Sounds on their website and to listen to the album version of the song, you can find that over on Bandcamp!

Small Houses album "Exactly Where You Wanted To Be" set for release on Feb. 26th, 2013!

Yer Bird Records has a new album coming out in February and it is from Michigan native Jeremy Quentin!  Jeremy Quentin who records as Small Houses is now based in Philadelphia and is bringing his album "Exactly Where You Wanted To Be" to the Yer Bird Records Indie Folk Roster.

The 8 track album brings Quentin's delicate acoustics, signature vocals and many of his troubadour stories of real life.  The album was created in Michigan with help from Andy Catlin, Elizabeth Pixley Fink and Philip D'Agostino (who you may know from the many recordings of Hezekiah Jones). 

The album brings beautifully layered sepia toned vignettes of hazy afternoons and fond memories.  We know you will enjoy it as much as we have. 

Official digital release is February 26th, 2013 (with some CDs available at live shows and possibly the Bandcamp page).  More information will be released along with some sounds in the next few weeks!  Till then.
