Mutlu
Mutlu
Mutlu is a Philadelphia based singer songwriter. Mutlu has already built a substantial fan base in his hometown, while winning widespread praise for his prior releases. He's collaborated and toured extensively as a support act with legendary duo Daryl Hall & John Oates and holds the distinction of having made the most guest appearances on Daryl Hall's acclaimed, award winning TV/Internet show "Live From Daryl's House". He's also gained considerable attention for his work with noted singer songwriter Amos Lee, with whom he's toured extensively as a support act and backup vocalist. He was the support act on the North American leg of Joe Jackson's acclaimed "Rain" tour.

Born Mutlu Onaral, he grew up steeped in Philadelphia's deep R&B traditions, eagerly absorbing the fundamentals of old school soul music and incorporating it into his own musical persona. His local success led to a recording deal with Manhattan/EMI Records, which released his acclaimed 2008 debut album Livin' It, produced by the late, great TBoneWolk, and featuring guest appearances by Daryl Hall, Amos Lee, G. Love and Raheem DeVaughn. His latest release is the Caffeine & Whiskey EP which he coproduced with songwriter/producer Darius Amendolia.
John Beacher
A prolific songwriter, natural performer, and "hope enthusiast," John Beacher has built his decade-long career not only with talent, but also with a genuine spirit and a kind heart. John’s music is a homecoming for the soul, timeless and sincere, and taps into a source that runs far deeper than the songwriter himself. Rooted in rhythm and blues, yet unbounded by genre, each song is a musical tapestry woven with soulful threads. Whether he’s singing songs of social justice, belting out blues or funk, or serenading you with a love ballad, there is no doubt that John is completely one with the musical process. A seasoned musician, his ability to improvise both on guitar and with his voice make each performance an entirely unique reflection of the audience and his surroundings.

With over a decade of performing experience Beacher has shared stages with national acts such as Leon Russell, Cheryl Wheeler, Rusted Root, Marshall Tucker Band, and Dean Ween Group, to name a few.

In 2015 John released his first fully produced solo album “Rise Up” and was invited to perform at the Philadelphia Folk Festival. His music is regularly featured on 88.5 WXPN out of Philadelphia PA, as well as many other independent radio stations across the country.
