About the event


Experience a unique showcase of incredible songs, storytelling, collaboration and community. This concert series brings you 4 talented songwriters curated by Aaron Nathans, Avi Wisnia, and Meghan Cary. Each month, a different line up of stand out artists share the stage, taking turns performing an eclectic variety of original songs, sharing the stories behind those songs, and speaking to the unique perspective that comes with having strong connections to the Philadelphia music scene.


Alex Radus

Alex Radus is known as a “versatile crooner” (Underground Music Collective) and “master guitarist” (Courier News), but his songwriting takes center stage.  Known affectionately for giving audiences genre whiplash, Radus pairs whimsical and poignant storytelling with an eclectic mix of Americana, swing, folk and more.  John Gorka has called him a “remarkable artist…an excellent songwriter and singer…worth going out of your way to hear”.  His most recent release, Tributaries, was recorded live at the legendary listening room, Godfrey Daniels.

Jessica Smucker

Jessica Smucker is the kind of writer and performer who can lull a noisy room into a hush with a single line. Wrapped in catchy melodies, her lyrics appear simple and relatable on the surface, but each listen will uncover more hidden pockets of nuance. Based in Lancaster, PA, Jessica performs all over the U.S. and has won several national songwriting awards. She has released two EPs, three full-length albums, a handful of singles, and plans to release more music in early 2024.
