The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Great Time

With a band name like Great Time, the trio of Jill Ryan, Donnie Spackman, and Zack Hartman have a lot to live up to, which they doubled down on with the naming of their debut LP Great Album – an eclectic mix of danceable grooves, soulful slow jams, and intimate bedroom pop, enhanced by hints of psychedelia, momentary rock freak-outs, and guest bars and vocals. The band is continuing to go all in with the construction of their very own recording studio on a farm outside of Philly, which was also supported by a successful Kickstarter campaign. Below is their latest video for the track “Lazy Lilly,” and you can catch them this upcoming Tuesday, November 20 at Johnny Brenda’s. But first, check out our recent Featured Artist(s) interview with the Great Time gang HERE!

Sammy Rae brings soulful jazz to Bowery Electric on 11.19

Sammy Rae forges a sound entirely of her own in her debut EP, The Good Life, released July 20. This artist executes her style with such playful spirit and vocal dexterity that this new collection can’t help but gleam with personality. Rae’s tracks don’t feel as though they're sung, but rather performed, and laced with a bit theatricality and a ton of confidence. Capable of fitting comfortably in either a swanky cocktail lounge, a roaring jazz club, a theater, or a suburban kitchen, her sultry jazz soul has a quality that allows it to wear a multitude of stylistic hats. The EP’s opening track, “The Feeling,” is a flawless preview of her sound, unveiling the liveliness that exists in her layers of joyful saxophone, bouncy percussion and vibrant lyrics. Sammy Rae’s songs are alive and pulse with brilliant authenticity, showcasing not only her musical acuity, but also her colorful character as an artist. To stream Sammy Rea's The Good Life EP, check out her pages on Soundcloud or Bandcamp. See her live at Bowery Electric on November 19 - Rebecca Carroll





"Revolution, Volume 33" returns with Samira Gibson, Ryan Peter Scott and Addison Frei

Once a month, National Sawdust puts on “The Revolution,” a  performance series showcasing Brooklyn & Harlem artists as a means of empowering and invigorating the local music and arts scene. Each month, three innovative and emerging artists from different genres get to showcase and share their work in a space that fosters connection, healing, and revolution. Sponsored by the Deli, Revolution Vol. 33 will take this place this upcoming Saturday featuring Addison Frei, Ryan Peter Scott, and Samira Gibson. 

Based out of New York by way of South Carolina, Samira Gibson taps into a haunting groove in her experimental neo-soul. Wielding her rich, powerful vocals like a knife, Gibson cuts through the noise and lets her words shine in her latest release, “Mona Lisa Remix.” The young singer has an impressive repertoire, having performed background vocals for heavyweights like Mary J Blige, Vic Mensa, and Elle Varner.

Ryan Peter Scott looks for answers to life’s greatest conundrums in his particular style of smokey, guitar-based blues. His introspections are highlighted on his latest record, Smoke & Licorice, which focuses on the journey of a young man searching for his own voice and autonomy. In a blend of funk, jazz, avant garde, and 70s rock, Scott creates a sound that feels familiar but innovative, as he flexes his prodigious guitar skills in his music.

Pianist, composer, and producer Addison Frei writes socially conscious and compositionally complex neo-jazz. He’s currently studying at Julliard, and working on a digital EP called Future Speak that explores today’s political climate through spoken verse, acoustic improvisation, and components of electronica amongst his piano compositions. 

Catch these three acts this Saturday at National Sawdust. Tickets and info can be found here

Nola Ade @ Chop Shop (12/13)

It’s been almost a year since the soulful Nola Ade released her latest single, the uplifting “Good Feelin’”. With her upcoming performance at Chop Shop on December 13th and recent interview we heard with Nola on CHIRP Radio, we thought this would be a great time to revisit the track and the “Good Feelin’” it gave us.

You can catch Nola Ade on December 13th at Chop Shop with Calib B. And Chai Tulani, and Rahkii.
