Michael Southerton (Song Dogs/Route 611) has been playing in and around the Philadelphia music scene for over a decade. His songs are of the wild country, of the Buffalo Crossroads, of the laurel, oak, and pine.
Brad Hinton has been a staple of the Philadelphia folk music scene for over a decade now, having played in such seminal groups as Wissahickon Chicken Shack, Mason Porter, Hezekiah Jones, Spinning Leaves, and others.
