Delicate Steve
Delicate Steve
Delicate Steve is the brainchild of New Jersey-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Steve Marion. As NPR has said, “Delicate Steve’s music maintains the capacity to surprise…guitar showcases that don’t shred, dance records that don’t adhere to familiar beats and classic-rock throwbacks that fan out into world music, prog, reggae, surf-rock and more, with the propulsive jitteriness and sideways oddness of Ratatat or Dirty Projectors.”SPIN has called the music “a kaleidoscope of bouncy pan-African polyrhythms and swooping six-string melodies, like the Dirty Projectors with guitars instead of singers.”

“Sun-kissed, acid-drenched, at times dissonant and at times blissfully melodic, Wondervisions brings to mind an even more out there Animal Collective or an instrumental incarnation of MGMT’s Congratulations recorded with the same old gear as Slanted And Enchanted.” — Au Magazine (UK)

Flush with six-string personality, Wondervisions shifts smoothly from Pavement’s psychedelic cowlicks (“Welcome-Begin”) to Dirty Projectors’ zigzagging Afro-riffs (“Butterfly”) to the synth and acoustic slide guitar of heartbreaking march “Don’t Get Stuck (Proud Elephants).” — Spin Magazine

A true child of his labelmeister, David Byrne, “Delicate” Steve Marion translates the felicities of West African guitar pop into an inventive instrumental hodgepodge. Nothing overly heavy or insipid to ponder here, unless you’ve got a problem with unalloyed joy. — Village Voice
Eric Slick (of Dr. Dog)
Eric Slick (of Dr. Dog)

Soul Cannon
Soul Cannon
Soul Cannon never stops pushing the boundaries of musical creation, both on the stage and off. A 4-piece hip-hop band consisting of three conservatory-trained jazz musicians and the most dynamic emcee in Baltimore, Soul Cannon’s music captivates hip-hop heads and music intellectuals alike. Recently named “Best Live Band” by the Baltimore City Paper, the group electrifies audiences at its shows with a combination of constant innovation, unparalleled collaboration, and pure sweat.

This special chemistry all began when forward thinking Baltimore emcee Eze Jackson linked up with three musical crossbreeds who came from across the country to attend the Peabody Conservatory. Unbeknownst to them, the four members had been brought together by a force larger than their individual selves, allowing them to forge musical connections and possibilities that have never been heard but have always been felt by true lovers of music. This radical element has already put Soul Cannon together onstage with renowned acts such as Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Hi-Tek, Jay Electronica, DJ Logic, People Under The Stairs, Blu, J.Davey, Busdriver and Grand Buffet.
