Doug Wartman
Doug Wartman
Doug Wartman is a composer of guitar-based experimental instrumentals. Doug has been tempering his technique in Boston, MA for the past nine years, but now is based out of Philadelphia, PA. Delivering his compositions with astounding control over his guitars, Doug moves seamlessly from moments of furious, frenetic rhythm, to serene harmonious resonance and unique melodic themes. Mixing elements of classical, jazz, and rock with an advanced understanding of dynamics, Doug's creations are reminiscent of the halcyon days of the 60s and 70s while also remaining distinctly contemporary.

Joshua Bation
Joshua is a singer-songwriter based in Philadelphia, PA. As a child, he was heavily influenced by a wide range of musical genres such as Rock and Roll, Classical, Jazz, R&B and Hip-Hop. Joshua attended The High School for the Creative and Performing Arts in Philadelphia where he first started taking his talent in music to another level.

Joshua's projects consist of a lyrical interpretation of his journey so far as a musician and as a soul finding purpose. He finds his biggest inspirations in the most normal of experiences in life as well as the many challenges and struggles that he faces.

"I let my personal experiences drive my creativity. "I'm Leaving" is the first of a few songs that I'll be releasing that speaks on my struggles and trials."

As the process of his current project progresses, Joshua continues to be fully engaged in singing and songwriting and hopes to be sharing all of his progress in the near future. He also continues to pursue his goal to travel around the world with his music. Josh dreams for his songs to be as relational as he intended them to be and for one day to hear countless people say, "I totally felt that."
Port Arthur
Port Arthur
Port Arthur stands at the crossroads between folk and jazz, between the earth and the sea, between matter and mind. Port Arthur's foundation is the music of Philadelphia singer-songwriters Luke Shefski and Christine Oglesby, in extraordinary collaboration with a most remarkable brass trio. They take inspiration from the untamed energy that simmers just below the surface of the ocean, and from the darkest, wildest corners of the forests of Pennsylvania.

Port Arthur's debut full-length album, "Everything's Incredible," relates stories about the challenging journey into adulthood, and the crises of the heart and body that invariably share the journey. Hailed as "amazing" by Radio Static Philly, "Everything's Incredible" is the culmination of years of writing, arranging, and performance. It is a sonic treasure of an album, engineered and co-produced by Doug Raus as one of the final projects from Brighton Sound Studio.
