STEREO LEAGUE

Formed in 2016, Stereo League is driven by the songwriting of childhood friends Alex Savoth and Dan King. Initially a studio project formed with the help of Engineer and Producer Eric Bogacz, the three began crafting songs and recruiting a cast of friends to fill in the gaps. Pretty soon, The League had grown to a dozen members and the result was their debut album “A Light on Each Side”. Often appearing live as a six-piece band, the group has incorporated influences from a plethora of genres, both modern and classic, refusing to be boxed in by conventional labels. The outcome is an ever-changing musical landscape that continues to evolve along with their line-up. On their last EP Endless Mirage, Savoth and King collaborated with the Synth & Soul record label and production crew Eraserhood Sound. The result is a timeless, shimmering collection of songs that tell evocative tales of loneliness and longing, set against the backdrop of Eraserhood Sound’s signature analog production. Stereo League, who was previously named Artist to Watch by Philadelphia’s WXPN, believes this release to be the clearest and best representation of their vision to date— delivering the soulful sound they have been searching for.
 
ANGELO OUTLAW
Angelo Outlaw is a deeply cosmic artist whose creativity knows no bounds. He is a master mallet percussionist and a thoughtful poet, and is finally getting the shine that he has for so long deserved. In 2020, Outlaw connected with fellow Philadelphians Eraserhood Sound. Together, the parties have released a string of synth & soul masterpieces, including the highly sought-after Time Traveler / Silent Horizon 7″ that was released in 2022. With this blazing hot two-sider, Angelo asserted himself as a force in the modern cosmic soul jazz universe. In early 2024, Eraserhood Sound released Angelo’s debut full-length album Axis of Time. According to Outlaw, the record is meant to transport the listener to a dream-like state, where space and time slowly fade away and reality is merely a distant memory. From the euphoric highs of lead single “Free My Mind” and uninhibited groove of “Speed of Light” to the trance-like meditation of “Dreams” and mournful melodies of “Invisible Clock,” Angelo and the EHS house band truly go to the cosmos and back. Axis of Time is an extraordinary debut from Outlaw, a young gay Black man who hopes to serve as an inspiration to others who might be perceived as different or other. His work transcends race, creed, religion, and politics, and has the power to speak to the universality of time, space, and human connection.
 
BO RAINS
Bo Rains is a Philly-based, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, performer, producer/arranger, and instructor. Pulling heavily from the influence of the “Sound of Philly” as the guitarist, keyboardist, and backing vocalist for The Mechanics, Bo works as a session/live performer for many projects for Grammy award-winning record producer, Joe “The Butcher” Nicolo and the Sound Mind Network. Bo has performed the National Anthem with Lauren Hart at a nationally-televised Philadelphia Flyers’ Home Opener at the Well Fargo Center and has contributed to releases by the Bacon Brothers, 1403, Stereo League, Soraia, Gooch & The Motion, and more! Bo is currently working on music for an EP of original music slated for release in Fall 2024.
