"Neo-hillbillies with a twist, Frog Holler plays mountain blues and country as accessible and modern as the most hummable pop" – (The Washington Post)

"Fifteen years after forming, the Berks County outfit have managed to stay together and procure scads of acclaim-from NPR, No Depression, The Washington Post and countless others-thanks largely to the down-home sweetness of their loose, melodic strain of alt-country. But it's also because the guys are genuine, playing what they like instead of burying their instincts in pretense or posturing”. (Doug Wallen Philly Weekly)

“Darren Schlappich is a real-deal storyteller, mixing everyday language and creative phrasing to produce vivid, exciting images that make you smile, tug on your heart, offer hard-earned wisdom - or do all three. Sweet melodies, rock crunch, and varied instrumentation make songs you can't get out of your head. All this band has to offer is talent, great songs, and consistency”. (No Depression)


Hezekiah Jones is the musical nom de plume for Raphael Cutrufello and a band of like-minded musicians crafting alternative folk music. His catalog of songs sometimes sounds like a post-apocalyptic White Album, as covered by Sufjan Stevens. The biting, sometimes campy vibe only serves to intensify the blow of his sucker-punch ballads. Songs are filled with outlandish characters, imagined landscapes, ringing harmonies, and baroque instrumental flourishes, but never disconnect from the tangible feelings at their center. -Peter Marinari, CBS Philadelphia


The once solo recording project of multi-instrumentalist/ singer/ songwriter Zack DeSantis is now a full fledged dynamic live alternative rock /indie band featuring the uber-talented Joel Saul, Zach Groff, and Glenn Hollenbach
