Since 2007, American Babies has been the mouthpiece for Philadelphia based musician Tom Hamilton.  The past four years have seen Hamilton hit the road playing his rootsy, country-infused songs, inspired by storytellers of past generations.  With a rotating cast of players, that included Joe Russo (Benevento/Russo Duo, Grateful Dead offshoot Furthur), brother Jim Hamilton, Scott Metzger (Gene Ween Band), Dave Driewitz (WEEN), and Ryan Thornton (Sean Bones), American Babies have landed on Festivals like Bonnaroo, CMJ, Langerado, SXSW and Newport Folk, as well as support slots for the Derek Trucks Band, Sheryl Crow, The National, and the Wood Brothers. 

Hamilton returned home to Philadelphia and partnered with producer Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Man Man, Hoots and Hellmouth) to record American Babies’ second LP.  The album talks of change, war, Wall Street, family, and the struggle to wade through it all.  In April 2011, the New York label, Engine Room Recordings  released the sophomore effort of American Babies entitled “Flawed Logic”.    Check it out here -

Founded by two guitar-whiz English teachers, New Paltz-based six piece The Sweet Clementines play a literate, lyrical, and musically sophisticated brand of odd-pop. With an emphasis on substantial, melodically abundant songs,  the Clementines’ sound nods to British invasion, psychedelia, folk, prog, and surreal cabaret without sounding much like any of the above.  Vibraphone and violin lend depth and texture to the quirky, dreamy, baroque arrangements.   For more on The Sweet Clementines:  Click Here
