Max Swan
Max Swan
A saxophonist, vocalist, and producer from Philadelphia by way of Perkasie, PA, Max Swan channels influence from the likes of Stevie Wonder, James Blake, Donny Hathaway, Michael Brecker, and Lenny Pickett. He's gone from nothing-but-jazz, to everything-other-than-jazz, and all stops in between. Initially being the loud alto player that showed up for the jam session every week, Max slowly took on more opportunities in hip hop production, as both a bandleader and a studio producer, playing with a number of artists and groups during their growth in the Philly music scene; notable names include LP Stiles, Kuf Knotz, Mic Stew, and most recently, Aime. Over time, the saxophone he'd lay on tracks led to supplementing keyboards, and writing string and horn section arrangements, many of which can be heard on Aime's most recent release, "The Book of David", available on iTunes, Spotify, and Pandora. The work that was done with these artists led Max to start laying vocals on his newer music, starting with "So Much Chime" (also available on iTunes, Spotify, etc.). Swan received accolades during his new process with Councilman David Oh's PHLlive Center Stage Music Conference, Ernest Stuart's Center City Jazz Festival, all while continuing his rigorous study of saxophone, mainly by way of Lenny Pickett (SNL), in order to truly reach proficiency in the altissimo (higher) registers of the instrument. Swan's music combines his passions for jazz fusion, 21st century soul, and contemporary hip hop, featuring his vocals, saxophone, and EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument). "The Fisherman", his debut, was made possible via The Kimmel Center, and will be available soon.
Saint Slumber
Saint Slumber
Forged in the suburban sprawl between Philadelphia and New York City, SAINT SLUMBER is an all-American rock band. Formed in the small, quiet towns of their upbringing, the band takes their music from their bedroom studios to stages beyond.

Self-producing all of their own records, their creative autonomy can be seen in the band’s 2017 debut EP entitled YOUTH//1. An expansive record for its breadth, SAINT SLUMBER juxtaposes the sounds of dreamy, electronic pop alongside alternative rock on their five song EP. In conjunction with the record, the band collaborated with producer Modern Machines to release the EDM-indie crossover track, "Hazy." In its first year, the band's debut tracks accrued a million streams, garnering the band appearances on the legendary SoFar Sounds sessions and Balcony TV, finishing the year strong by playing Philadelphia's Winter Jawn Festival with Dashboard Confessional and the Struts to a record-breaking crowd.

2018 brings SAINT SLUMBER into a new year, a new chapter, and a new EP cycle. Starting the summer off strong, Saint Slumber was added to Radio 104.5's Birthday Bash, playing with 30 Seconds to Mars, Portugal. the Man, and Walk the Moon on their Philadelphia stop of the Monolith Tour. Looking to build off of the success of their debut record, the band plans on releasing its new EP, entitled "YOUTH//2," in the summer of 2018. Ambitiously heading into its second year, the band is only getting started. Forged in the suburban sprawl between Philadelphia and New York City, SAINT SLUMBER is an all-American rock band.
