With an impressive list of bands on his musical resume, John Davis is no stranger to the DC music scene. When the band known as Georgie James ended there was no time for mourning. Focusing on eclectic and pop oriented tunes, Davis quickly sought to put the right people together to create a new band, Title Tracks.

Q&A with Stripmall Ballads

Q&A with Stripmall Ballads

Stripmall Ballads comes from the musical mind of Phillips Saylor and the name provides a well deserved nod to Woody Guthrie’s iconic album, “Dust Bowl Ballads.” With nothing more than a banjo in one hand and a harmonica in the other Saylor, and the talented musicians in Stripmall Ballads, have become modern day heros of American folk music. Read our interview with Saylor who discusses fate, life’s hardships and what the future holds in store for the band.

High Tea with The Petticoat Tea Room

High Tea with The Petticoat Tea Room

Who knew that the DC/MD area could claim home to not one, but two Petticoat Tea Rooms? Fans of the first–an actual tea room located in Baltimore–are primarily men and women whom enjoy sipping tea and nibbling on finger sandwiches. Fans of the second–a local band that (other than name, origin, and a passion for hot beverages) has little in common with said room–are primarily men and women whom enjoy an invigorating blend of alt-rock, alt-country, Americana, and just a nibble of ambient electronica. The latter, of course, is much more DoS’s taste.
