"Dirt roads and low-flying crows come to mind when the first gritty chords of a Cardillo song come on. There is something sentimental shaking in a cage at the forefront of the music, but it's certainly screaming to get out. This might have something to do with the Philadelphia roots of front-man and songwriter Chris Cardillo who spent years in the backstreets of New Jersey, and just as many years in that city which looms across the river like the gnarled teeth of some silver and tarmacked beast. Although the sounds of Cardillo certainly beat with the heart of the east coast, something else carries it away. With the pace of a desert highway coyote, Cardillo's compositions swerve through the backroads of America looking forward and peeking behind only to catch glimpses of the grim truths that haunt us all." - Ray Pinetroll, The Ghost Gazette
Ryan Petrillo (The Bailey Hounds)
The Bailey Hounds emerged from the Philadelphia music scene in 2011 with their debut album "Along the Gallows"—a melancholy prowl through a series of Americana compositions, rife with imagery akin to the macabre, the diabolical, and the morose. Teetering on the border of alt-country and indie-rock, The Bailey Hounds prefer to look to the aesthetics of horror films and murder ballads for inspiration, drawing on the often sublime characteristics of the former and lyrical intrigue of the latter.
Kevin Large (Widower)
New Jersey native, Seattle staple, and off and on again New Yorker, Kevin Large has been making music under the Widower moniker for over a decade. Large’s lyrically driven songwriting is reminiscent of Petty’s more mellow moments. There’s a cinematic sentiment to these songs, like a car in the rain in a Cameron Crowe film
