Philly Alt Country/Americana

Philly (and it surrounding areas - S. Jersey, Delaware, NE PA and Central PA) has a somewhat disorganized and sometimes hard to find alt country/Americana scene. As a Philly alt country musician and fan, thought I would start this group to try and bring musicians and fans together. Talk about local performers, national acts coming to town, venues or anything else Philly area, alt country or Americana related.See More

Sep 6, 2012

"Larabee’s EP is a terrific collection of alternative-country rock and roll dosed with a power-pop sensibilities. The guitars shimmer (“Little Liar”), the songs are super melodic, and the arrangements are well crafted (“Forever’s Ending”). There is a timelessness to the sound of these songs that makes them comfortable and refreshing at the same time." WXPN's The Key -

"The Jayhawks at their catchiest."

"Matt Maguire, driving force behind Philadelphia's Larabee, leads off his brand new EP, Expose A Little Wire, with 216 seconds of pop bliss, the jittery, harmonica driven jangle fest "Little Liar". Easily passing the Five Second Test (trademark pending) with an adrenaline-laced guitar volley spiked with a skittish harmonica jolt, "Little Liar" is a classic, attention grabbing track 1."

"little liar, is what i consider an alt-countryish gem. i love music like this…a down-home, foot-tappin’ nothing-fake-about-it jam. reminds me of my college days, cruising around the one and only fort collins, colorado in my buddy’s pickup truck blasting lucero and DBT."

"Little Liar is a song that Vocal Nerd Rodeo calls an “alt-countryish gem” and I agree. As someone that grew up on country, Little Liar is one of those songs where I can’t help but tap my foot along with. Throw in the harmonica and I’m hooked."

Listened to your tracks. When were they released? Nice stuff. Reminds me of T-Bone Burnett's early solo stuff.

Keep in touch,
