Foxtrot & the Get Down
Foxtrot & the Get Down began at West Chester University through mutual musical interests between singer/songwriter Colin Budny and bassist Ken Bianco. Bonding over acts like G. Love & Special Sauce and A Tribe Called Quest, Budny and Bianco began creating music and playing sets around Philadelphia and the surrounding areas. After adding vocalist Erica Ruiz, the band released their debut EP "Sold the Soul" in 2014.
After signing to Nashville based indie label American Echo Records, and adding their permanent fixture at drums Jimmy Iovine, the band began toured extensively, and in February 2017, the band released their debut LP, "Roots too Deep". With positive critical response, a strong social media following, raucous live shows, and a growing fan base, the band re-entered the studio in the fall of 2017.
In October 2017, Foxtrot released "Shine", the first in a series of singles that showcases the band's growing sound. Showcasing both Budny and Ruiz's vocal strengths, hooky songwriting, and a horn section, Foxtrot blends the ideals of Bruce Springsteen, The Killers, Alabama Shakes, while staying true to their rock, soul, pop, and blues roots.
The Chris Paterno Band
The Chris Paterno Band (the CPB) is a 7-piece indie-pop-soul band - think John Mayer meets Stevie Wonder. We are based out of Philadelphia, PA and just released our debut EP produced by 9-time Grammy-winner, Joe Nicolo.
In June of 2015, Chris brought together an eclectic group of musicians, including drummer Doug Parsons - Chris' 9th grade English teacher. Along the way, Chris was accepted to medical school, but deferred his acceptance to continue to play music. With Doug keeping it old school behind the kit, a killer horn section, and a dedicated front man, the CPB spans generations and brings an energy unparalleled making us fun to watch. The re-brith of Philly soul is here.
