About Bethlehem and Sad Patrick:
Bethlehem and Sad Patrick deliver powerful songs of love and other struggles. Combining smart, heartfelt lyrics, soaring vocals, sparse guitar and driving percussion, they dig deep into being in and out of love, keeping your head up in the city, struggling in all sorts of ways, and searching for peace on the margins. Sad Patrick’s hybrid of folk and jazz guitar provides a subtle counterpoint to Bethlehem’s “vocussion” – her term for her powerful, immersive singing, remarkable improvisations and nuanced melodies riding atop tarima and body percussion. 2019’s “Love and Other Struggles” sonically and thematically extends their range, and landed them on NPR Slingshot’s list of Ten Artists to Know from Philadelphia. “The pair use minimalism to their advantage, crafting delicate and thoughtful songs about everything from love to life in the city to the fight against racism and intolerance with a gentle poetic edge.” – Sarah Hojsak, WXPN / The Key.
About Aaron Parnell Brown:
With his trailblazing, instantly memorable songs and gritty, unvarnished vocals, Aaron Parnell Brown is among the most extraordinary up-and-comers in the Blues, Roots, and Soul world. His deep familiarity with the roots rhythm and blues tradition allows him to bust the genre wide open, adding new sounds, colors and textures, all delivered with a revival tent preacher’s fervor and a natural storyteller’s charisma.
Since the 2012 release of his self-released debut, Sing, Brown’s meteoric rise from playing small clubs in Northeastern Pennsylvania to playing live on the iconic NPR roots music show Mountain Stage (in West Virginia) is nothing short of phenomenal. With accolades like winning an Independent Music Award and Soul/R&B Artist Of The Year (Tri State Indie Music Awards) he continues to set the roots rhythm and blues world on fire.
