Mo Lowda & The Humble
Known for their progressive song writing and energetic live performances, Mo Lowda & the Humble’s beginnings were in the beer-soaked basements of Philadelphia. Following the release of their first full length album in 2013, the trio, consisting of Jordan Caiola, Shane Woods, and Nate Matulis began playing venues throughout the city. After experiencing the high of multiple sold out hometown shows, The Humble took their act on the road. 2015 was highlighted by shows throughout the country and plays at notable summer festivals such as Firefly. The band’s 2016 sophomore release, ‘Act Accordingly’, is a short and sweet embodiment of the band’s natural progression; refining their already formidable sound.
Since 2013, siblings Sam & Zack DuPont have traveled throughout the country performing as the indie-folk duo, The DuPont Brothers. Some highlights of the independent act’s tours include festival plays at SXSW and Grand Point North as well as opening slots in support of grammy award winning musicians: Sturgill Simpson, Blake Mills, Pat Benatar, Suzanne Vega, and Jerry Douglas. After releasing an EP, two full length studio records, and two live albums in tandem with extensive runs all over the Northeast, Mid Atlantic, Southeast and Mid West, the brothers have been inspired to evolve sonically moving forward into 2018. A recent interview with Jordan Adams, music editor of Burlington, VT’s local news source, Seven Days, describes the siblings’ path toward rebranding.“We’ve been playing around with the idea of doing a name change or side project and a sonic remapping in certain ways,” said Sam, noting that the initial discussion of stirring things up began almost two years ago. “We love the folk thing, [and] we got really into how to make a duo show cool,” said Zack. “But then we started getting a lot of outside influence coming in: rock bands, indie-rock bands, jazz musicians, improvisational musicians — whatever. I think we’re just trying to evolve,” Zack mused. “Not even trying — it’s just happening. It makes a lot of sense. [We’ll] keep all those lovely elements we’ve developed over the years — [like] the tight harmony singing — but definitely incorporate more rhythm.” The new year rings in a fresh direction for the duo and expansion into a full band sound. SoundBrother is just that. The most recent side project is an indie-rock outfit featuring long time collaborator Robinson Morse on bass and Dan Davine on drums. Plans to release a debut record in the summer of 2018 are in motion.
