Long Miles
Long Miles
From the suburbs of Philadelphia, with sounds infecting the East Coast and beyond, Long Miles brings you melodies from a light heart. The band likes to shine in their own way, bringing good vibes to people wherever they take the stage.

“Long Miles is a wonderful young band from Philadelphia and if you didn’t know that you would swear they are from some beach community on the west coast. Fans of G Love, Jack Johnson and almost any jam band should love Long Miles.” - Marc Swersky of Etalent Showcase

Long Miles has come a long way since their self-produced LP, 405 Productions, recorded in their freshman college dorm room in Charleston in 2009. They recorded A Philadelphonic EP with Chris DiBeneditto (G. Love & Special Sauce, Slightly Stoopid) at Philadelphonic Studios in Philadelphia, with a November 2010 release. In March of 2012 they released their latest album, Shades, recorded with Rick Beato (Trey Anastasio, NeedToBreathe, The Movement). Both of these recordings showcase Long Miles’ exploration of reggae-tinged textures and jam band-influenced song arrangements, while continuing to define their signature blend of inventive lyrics and tight, dance-inducing rhythms.

With tunes on the radio and consistent crowds at live shows, their potential to be a major influence on the scene can be found at every listen.
Little Stranger
Little Stranger
Little Stranger is an alternative/hip-hop duo born in Philadelphia, PA and transplanted to Charleston, SC. John Shields and Kevin Shields (of no known relation) comprise the charismatic two-piece as an “interchangeable, indispensable pair in limbo between rapper and singer-songwriter.” 2015 saw the band’s formation followed quickly by their first full length release, Buddha the Beast.Recorded in Philadelphia and Charleston, Buddha the Beast offers a “mashup of electronic beats, surf-ready sounds, and hip-hop…each song is an experience all its own.”

What started as a side-project quickly moved into the forefront as the duo’s chemistry on stage and in the studio sparked a unified vision. Prior to Little Stranger, both Shields and Shields fronted their own bands that would go on to share the stage with other notable acts such as Slightly Stoopid, Del the Funky Homosapien, Steel Pulse, Grace Potter, The Heavy Pets, and John Brown’s Body. With years of on-stage experience between them, Little Stranger bring an energy and freestyle approach to each live show, paying mind to the importance of keeping every performance fresh and unique.

With influences from artists such as Beck, Gorillaz, and Outkast, Little Stranger combine melodic songwriting with hip-hop-inspired lyricism and production, creating a sound that slips into your subconscious after one listen!
