    Liz and the Lost Boys On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

    I think I saw a photo of this petite lady with a giant harp…yeah, yeah, it was something like that. There was this harp-pixie-pic somewhere…I saw it…I know I did! But… …I dunno: I can’t figure…

    Art on the Hill, Featuring Todd Marrone

      We are profoundly saddened at the passing of one of the most inspirational humans with whom we’ve ever had the good fortune to cross paths. Todd Marrone was—and will continue to be—a gracious star: one…

DIA  012

DIA

We met DIA through the super cool Sofar Sounds: Philadelphia group (https://www.facebook.com/SofarPhilly). She was playing one of their pop-up shows at a seemingly random (yet somehow completely inviting and enjoyable) spot in Center City: one of…

Matt Duke On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

We were introduced to Matt by via Burlap and Bean (http://burlapandbean.com/), a lovely listening room in the near Philadelphia suburb of Newtown Square. The owner of the venue—a close friend of ours with great taste—recommended Matt…

Kuf and Joe  004

Kuf Knotz with Joe Miller On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

I saw these fellas play together, and 32 seconds in to the first track, I was already thinking about how I can word a request for them to play a session: I was feeling it. I…

Irene Molloy On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

Irene is a pretty special talent: she writes and sings the heck out of some of the catchiest tunes you’ll hear; she acts—like, really acts; she’s wicked smaht…and she’s positively one of the sweetest, most down-to-earth…

Anna Vogelzang  003

Anna Vogelzang On The Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

  Anna introduced herself to us several months ago in a “hey, how ya doin’?” kind of email. She had some really nice things to say, which which we appreciated (of course), and she shared a…

The Bright Smoke  003

The Bright Smoke On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

  The Bright Smoke has got vibe. Twenty-years-ago-me would make fun of now-me for saying so, but that’s only because I wouldn’t have gotten it back then. I hope I get it now! Mia and Quincy…

Jim Trainer On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

Jim was our very first On the Hill performer; in fact, he’s mostly responsible for the title of our lovely blog! Jim is a huge personality with a giant voice and many, many words with which…

Modern Inventors  005reverse

Modern Inventors On The Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

Modern Inventors’ name immediately made me think of a quote from someone in the US Patent Office, circa 1900: “Everything that can be invented has been invented.” …to which—of course—there isn’t much truth; however, in the…

Pine Barons  012

Pine Barons On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

We immediately liked these fellas: their songs are totally good, wicked catchy, and really interestingly arranged. Also, they’re each about a sweet as you can imagine a 20-ish-year-old guy to be…perhaps even sweeter. We had an…

Blair  005

Blair Bodine On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

Blair is so full of positivity and joy that I’m almost a little jealous: everything she says comes with an honest smile and a considerate ear…but how’s her music? Well, I’m happy to report that it…
