Leading up to the Liberty Musicfest we will be introducing to you all the artists, 4 at a time.
So check them out. This is going to be an epic event!!! Check out these artists below!

Queen V - from New York, NY
“Queen V has opened for Billy Idol and Bon Jovi and features Vernon Reid (Living Colour) and Tom Morello (Rage) on her new album. The endorsement of these legends should be enough to get you to believe that V is the real deal – an anti-establishment rock personality who can shred.”
“Her driving T-Rex-meets-the-Sweet guitar tone and rough, no-bull voice are intense enough to melt your ears, eyes and nose right off of your face.”
“Counting the likes of Robert Plant, Freddie Mercury and David Lee Roth (as well as few prominent females, such as Janis Joplin and Joan Jett) as musical role models, Queen V has set out to bring rock ‘n roll back to its essence. Her plan is a simple one. “It’s taking those tried and true rock ‘n roll values that I was raised on and throwing it around with my own story and my own experiences of being a woman in music and also an artist coming up in New York City.””
Nine Times Blue  - from Atlanta, GA

“[Nine Times Blue] have developed a sound that channels such artists as The Smithereens and Marshall Crenshaw and in places reminds one of elements of The Squeeze and the Gin Blossoms. The first full-length album by Nine Times Blue proves that power pop is alive and well in the Atlanta area."”
“Modern, mature, rock/ cahoots with the Matthew Sweet/Fountains of Wayne/Crowded House/Gin Blossoms/Jellyfish school of Beatlesesque guitar groups.”
Jack Rabid - Big Takeover
The Teeth - from Harrisburg, PA

Formed in the Fall of 2010, The Teeth hit the ground running with their debut EP “Eat.Sleep.Drink.” The four piece group delivers a one-two punch of high energy post hardcore and dirty southern melodic rock; drawing from influences such as Every Time I Die, Glassjaw, and The Bronx. The group is made up of road worn friends from previous touring bands with one common interest: Divide and Conquer. In the short two years of their existence, The Teeth are already pushing to make their mark. Sharing the stage with the likes of Stray from the Path, Letlive, The Greenery, The Bunny The Bear, and Valient Thorr, with several small tours under their belt, there is no end in sight. Following the success of “Eat.Sleep.Drink.,” The Teeth released their first full-length album, “Homewrecker,” on August 14, 2012. Recorded in April of 2012 with Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland at Atrium Audio (August Burns Red, This or the Apocalypse, Texas in July) in Lancaster, PA, “Homewrecker” takes the party rock and roll tone from “Eat.Sleep.Drink.” to a whole new level. With a combination of hardcore, rock, metal, and even punk elements, “Homewrecker” is not for the faint of heart.
The Skeleton Frames - from Philadelphhia, PA
Sweet Leda - from Annapolis, MD

“. . . Sweet Leda was this year’s delightful find . . . Julie Cymek’s distinctive voice brought it strong . . . Think Adele mixed with Mary J. Blige with a certain South Of The Mason-Dixon Line ache that’s all her own . . . I listened to the CD in the car on the way home and it made my trip north on 83 quite the funky ride. There is not a bad song on it. I recommend you get one for your own ride or house party or whatever. You will not be disappointed.””
Randy Bucksner from Tri State Indie

"Sweet Leda have played the Dewey Beach Music Confernce 2012, The South Street Springfest 2013 and several shows at Legendary Dobbs for me and each show was more powerful and moving than the next. Julie's vocals are powerful, soulful and silences a crowd in awe, than backed by funky bass lines and grooving backbeat which always steals the show! One of the bands that I was tell everyone they must experience!!!
Jim Thorpe - Legendary Dobbs / DBMC / DVT Entertainment
Revolution, I Love You - from Philadelphia, PA.

““Cotton Shirts,” Revolution, I Love You’s new single, is a slow jam. Sort of. Building from 808s, snap samples and a single-note piano melody to a dense, reverb-drenched climax, it draws equally from mid-90s R&B, JamesBlake, Massive Attack and M83.”

“Now that was something COMPLETELY different! ”
Wendy Rollins - Radio 104.5 Philadelphia
“It’s here, in RILY’s love of percussion—specifically, the kind of IDM blasts that were the calling card of Aphex Twin and Atari Teenage Riot in the ’90s—that things become interesting, and where RILY wrestles themselves from the pack.”

Vox Time & Keys - from Wenonah, NJ
