About the event


Philly-based Tracy Colletto has garnered comparisons to Alanis Morissette and Joni Mitchell for her songwriting and vocal style. For the most part, she likes to write about personal perseverance and journeys to far-away places. Her music has been included on many playlists for all types of radio stations, including WXPN’s Sleepy Hollow, whose DJ, Chuck Elliott, says her lyrics are sometimes "profound but ALWAYS ENGAGING, delivered in a CLEAR, COMPELLING voice which makes for great listening ...”  She was a finalist in the Singer-Songwriter category of in the Great American Song contest (2023), was listed as one of NSAI’s “Ones-To-Watch” in 2020.


Dad, husband, son, brother, friend, singer/songwriter and sometime philosopher, J. D Malone was born and raised under a bright blue sky in a small town called Bennington in the Green Mountain State of Vermont, U.S.A. He writes and sings songs about love and hate, angels and demons and the universal struggle to feel safe under the stars. Nick Cristiano of The Philadelphia Inquirer says that Malone "writes songs that grab you right away and then resonate deeply."


Norman Taylor is a singer/songwriter/acoustic blues performer from the South Jersey/Philadelphia area. His style is entrenched in the country blues of people like Robert Johnson and Skip James, and contemporary acoustic blues men like Keb Mo, Eric Bibb and Guy Davis. Norman also draws influence from country, 70′s rock, soul, gospel and a variety of musical forms.


Aaron Nathans is a Philadelphia-based alternative folk music singer, songwriter and recording artist with a distinct sound, due in large part to a combination of rhythmic acoustic guitar, wide-ranging baritone vocals and beautiful melodies that you won’t soon forget. When pairing that with talented songwriting that touches on everyday life and easily connects with audiences, you’ll see why Aaron is someone you won’t want to miss. Aaron creates an unforgettable listening experience that keeps audiences on the edge of their seat.
