AN EVENING OF BABES AND MUSIC. TICKETS: http://www.bootandsaddlephilly.com/event/760485-ali-wadsworth-philadelphia/ ALI WADSWORTH: Ali Wadsworth is the daughter of a rock musician/chemical engineer and a tapestry weaver. Life and her father's job brought her all over the world, including Moscow to study opera, musical theatre in exotic North Jersey and Jazz at The University of Vermont. Her rock band UNLIKELY COWBOY brought her to Philly, which split off into GOOD OLD WAR, and Ali joined forced with her sister and formed GOLDIEBOX and Philadelphia super-group FANTASY SQUARE GARDEN. When these bands disbanded (as most bands do), Ali and her little sister Claire decided to give national television a try. The Wadsworth Sisters were asked to audition for NBC's The Voice, and spent the summer of 2012 living in a Los Angeles hotel singing and filming. Ali just finished her first solo record with mega producer Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Floating Action, Man Man, The Sheepdogs) which will be a collection of songs given to her by her favorite songwriters. Debut Solo Album released October 5, 2013. New tunes being recorded now :) Ali spends her time singing patriotic songs at MLB games and shooting bows and arrows. MAITLAND: If you love Jose Gonzalez, Patrick Watson, Bon Iver, and Jeff Buckley, you’re going to love Maitland. Josh Hines is the heart of Maitland. Originally from the Williamsport, PA area Maitland now calls Philly home. Josh has been making waves in Philly and beyond for quite some time. Maitland was Philly Deli Magazine Artist of the Month – May 2013, and has been featured on The Key (WXPN), Rock On Philly, Deftune Music, and MusicWithoutLabelsTV and other music publications. BILL MCCLOSKEY: https://maitland.bandcamp.com/ For a man known as the Delco Destroyer, Bill McCloskey sure is a gentleman. Buy him a drink, and he will engage you in genuine discussion. He will hold the door for you and your lover and think nothing of the pending karmic gifts. More than this, Bill McCloskey crafts a damn fine song. John Lee Hooker once said he didn’t “like no fancy chords, just the boogie”. Unlike Hooker, Bill McCloskey knows fancy chords, and uses them (in addition to common plebian chords) to great effect. Bill presents well-written, witty and honest musical reflections on life and love inspired by various longitudes and latitudes of this world. It’s like Paul Simon in a leather jacket. He’s coming to Boot and Saddle onFebruary 28th. So come on out, I bet he’ll show you some of those fancy chords if you ask nicely.
