A true Philly legend. An inspiration on every possible level. Thank you for blessing us all.
The surprise of the night at the Kuf & Christine 30amp Brownstone Sessions was when 30amps Artist Director Kimberly Landle jumped in with Just Mad Nice and improvised a dance on this amazing piece. Beyond beautiful. This is Art people!
In it's 5th year the Philly Music Fest (a non-profit like us!) was totally sold-out on every level and clearly demonstarated why Philly can compete (and beat) any city in a battle of the bands. Great job to our attorney Greg Seltzer and his wife Jen for putting this whole thing togehter.
MC/Poet/Songwriter Kuf Knotz and classically trained Harpist/Vocalist Christine Elise’s new release "rē(ə)l ləv" [Real Love] is a genre blending offering, featuring a talented community of producers and musicians, focused on delivering a soulful record with themes centered on love, growth & unity. Recorded at Morningstar Studio, by 2x Grammy Award winner, Glenn Barret, this album is an abstract collection of thoughts, words and sounds that leave the listener feeling connected, invigorated and revitalised. New single now available on-> Bandcamp & Spotify
