Christine Havrilla & Gypsy Fuzz
Christine Havrilla & Gypsy Fuzz
True to its name, the SIRENS OF SPRING TOUR features women who sing with enchanting sweetness, and listeners will be treated to a night of engaging performances from Philadelphia based Christine Havrilla & Gypsy Fuzz, Baltimore based Mama’s Black Sheep, and special guests, Annapolis’ own Sweet Leda!! The SIRENS OF SPRING TOUR is a 24-day, 17-city tour featuring female singer-songwriters. Now in its fifth year, SIRENS OF SPRING started as a co-bill tour with Mama’s Black Sheep & Christine Havrilla, and has now grown to include other artists in select cities along the way.

Award-winning Philadelphia native Christine Havrilla brings her “well-built, catchy, smart tunes” (Upstage Magazine) to audiences everywhere, touring nationally solo and also with the support of her band, Gypsy Fuzz. Christine utilizes the soft gritty texture of her vocals to express warmth and honesty listeners quickly embrace as well as her aggressive, raw, trash-style guitar playing and looping. Main Line Today Magazine lists Christine as one the 25 “Power Women” ready to lead (October 2015). “Christine Havrilla is a creative, talented powerhouse wrapped up in one complete package!” exclaims Nor’easter Magazine (Aug 2015). Mike “Jacobs” McKenna of Steel Notes Magazine reviews & says “This CD (Vol. 2- The Sunset Sessions) just defies description. It is hot, tight, precise and just plain kicks ass. This ambitious Philly native manifests her talent in certain ways that allows her to create eclectic music which will grab your heart and leave a lasting memory. Her Roots/Folk/Americana background coupled with that unique individuality that she possesses allows her to be a presence that steps into many genres and gives her the tools to crossover to different music formats. I give this 2 THUMBS UP!” Mark Rogers from 93.7 WSTW raves, “…with Gypsy Fuzz (the album and the band), Christine takes especially that rock element and turns it to 11. Gypsy Fuzz fuses fantastic guitar work with Christine’s vocals, which can reach down inside and grab your heart. A very diverse album, showing elements of rock, blues and even country, among others, Gypsy Fuzz continues Christine’s string of fantastic albums. Buy it.” Named "One of the Top Ten Indie Artists" by The Advocate Magazine, The Washington Post writes, “(Havrilla’s) songs are intelligent and moving, the arrangements are incisive and colorful, and, best of all, Havrilla consistently comes across as a confident and seasoned performer.” Christine has shared the stage with artists like Brandi Carlile, Chely Wright, Jeffrey Gaines, America, Jill Sobule, Janis Ian, & Davy Knowels to name a few. Gypsy Fuzz’s premier album titled “Searching. Finding. Living.”, co-produced by Larry Crane (Elliott Smith, Sleater-Kinney, Cat Power), was listed on Advocate Magazine’s not to be missed “Best Overlooked Albums of 2011!” (Advocate -November 2011) Christine is listed with Takamine Guitar’s Worldwide Artists, Clayton Picks, Audix Mics, was a featured Artist for American Musical Supply’s Singer/Songwriter Month (Feb 2015, 2017), nominated for About.com's 2013 Reader's Choice Awards, awarded the 2010 Garden State Film Festival’s “Best Contemporary Country Song” for “Blinders”, nominated for 3 “Homey Awards” (2015) for 93.7 WSTW, and is called "...raw, simple, wonderful!" by Curve Magazine. Inessa at 101.9 KINK.FM calls Gypsy Fuzz "Yet another fun late-year discovery!" Michaela Majoun, former DJ from 88.5 WXPN, applauds her "terrific, big sound”, while Philadelphia Magazine states, “She rocks!” Christine is noted in the new book by Sean Kay called “Rockin’ the Free World” (Dec 2016 Roman & Littlefield) and her current project is a series of “Live Session” volumes, with “Vol. 1- The Creamery Sessions”, “Vol. 2- The Sunset Sessions”, and “Vol. 3- The Old Church Sessions”, and Vol. 4- The Lansdowne Folk Club Sessions all available. The band also returns to the studio to record an EP of new songs this winter to be released in 2018!
Mama's Black Sheep
Mama's Black Sheep
Mama’s Black Sheep is the soulful collaboration of singer-songwriters Ashland Miller (guitar/vocals) and Laura Cerulli (drums/vocals). Together, this duo creates a blend of hit worthy originals and covers with a unique spin. Each song allows you to travel with time, whether you’re swinging to Country, Rocking to Pop, Grooving to Soul, or swaying to the Blues; there’s always something to move your body and stir your soul! Touring together since 2008, Miller & Cerulli (veterans of the singer-songwriter circuit), will make you feel like every aspect of their journey is in Real-Time. Creating a sound all of their own, Mama’s Black Sheep is driven by Miller’s versatile guitar grooves, Cerulli’s innovative percussion, and two voices that blend like honey & whiskey in perfect harmonious balance. These ladies rock to their own beat, sharing songs of life and love, and empowering the listener to live boldly beyond the barriers. With two well received CD’s to their credit (Unmarked Highway, 2010; Drivin’ On, 2011) the duos newest recording,“Live @ The Bevy” was released in 2016. “Live @ The Bevy” is a full-length concert DVD/CD set recorded at the Bevy In Birdtown in the Cleveland, OH area. The new recording features eight original songs along with some of their most requested covers. Mama’s Black Sheep has been burning up the road touring extensively throughout the continental U.S. and the Caribbean, playing nearly 200 shows a year. For this show Ashland & Laura will be joined by Helen Hausmann on Violin and Christine Havrilla on Bass. Ashland and Laura, produce magical tapestries of songs, weaving energetic color and rich texture to create an infectious and lively conversation between guitar and percussion. This thought-provoking duo will tantalize your aural appetite, regardless of your musical taste buds, with a diverse blend of blues, soul, country, pop, and more by unapologetically dipping into the well of all music genres. It’s called soulful, poetic story telling with an irresistible groove.
Sweet Leda
Sweet Leda
Powered by Julie Cymek’s sultry, commanding vocals and electrifying stage presence, Sweet Leda is taking the diverse mid-Atlantic music scene by storm as one of the most exciting and accomplished live acts on the rise. In fact, Lou Plaia (co-founder of Reverbnation) describes them as “the highlight of every festival they play.” With its rich blend of new school funk, psychedelic rock, soul and pop, Sweet Leda’s heartfelt original music can best be described as a female-fronted, soul-based, Zeppelin meets Chili Peppers! Sweet Leda’s sophomore album Let It In captures the live and raw essence of what can only come from years of steady gigs, blood, sweat, and a few tears. To capture this essence, the band recorded all together in one room, tracking analog to 2” tape. What came out of the process is an intimate, in-your-face, edgy sound that exemplifies Sweet Leda live, at their best. Let It In was recorded and engineered at Wright Way in Baltimore by IRKO (Jay-Z, J Lo, Pitbull, Talib Kweli), mastered by Brian Lucey (Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, Beck, Dr John), and produced by Sweet Leda’s very own “fifth Beatle,” Stephen Joseph Antonelli, who also produced and recorded the band’s first album, Need The Music. Among the band’s many milestone achievements are: five Tri State Indie Music Awards, including the Groupie’s Choice Award in 2012; Best Emerging Artist DC/Baltimore in The Deli Magazine’s reader’s poll in 2011; sharing the stage with bands like Galactic, 311, Dumpstaphunk, and Jefferson Starship; performing at festivals with the likes of Citizen Cope, John Mayer, G Love, Cake, Live, Lake Street Dive, and Tedeschi Trucks; writing the end-credit title track for the feature film Lovely Molly by Ed Sanchez (Blair Witch Project); being hand-picked by Allman Bros. drummer Butch Trucks to open for his band at the Roots Rock Revival Masters Camp; playing main stage at Artscape 2014; playing a private show for the Reverbnation office in 2015; and gracing the Miller Lite Stage (2013) and ULine stage (2015) at Summerfest in Milwaukee.
