This month Studio 34’s Sunday Music Series brings you a night of Philly favorites…two musical acts and a culinary powerhouse!
Philadelphia based Dani & Joe are songwriting sweethearts who, after years as supporting members in other prominent Philly bands, hit the scene under their own names in 2020 with the release of “All for You.” Their beginnings grew out of small intimate shows and the music carries that tradition compositionally. Joni-style folk collage storytelling meets experimental R&B with a Black Keys makeup.
Sterling Duns (aka Dwight Dunston) is a West Philly-based facilitator, hip-hop artist, educator, and activist who has brought his creativity, care, and compassion to schools, community centers, retirement homes, festivals, and stadiums all over the country and internationally. In this season, he is learning to amplify his joy and learn from his grief and is actively practicing reverence (feel free to ask him about all of this!) You can hear Duns in conversation with spirit-led artist and activist on Pendle Hill’s new podcast, The Seed: Conversations for Radical Hope.
Madeline Lee is a songwriter based in Philadelphia and Vermont. Her music mixes modern indie rock with old-timey folk with an eclectic sound drawing inspiration from artists like Mountain Man, Gilian Welch, the Cranberries, and Big Thief. Madeline’s songs reckon with the “big stuff” in life, love in its many forms a central theme. Through her lyrics, she tells stories just the way they happened, in all their messy joy and pain. Expect a little sad girl guitar, some clawhammer banjo, and a few lovely, lifting harmonies. For more Madeline Lee, check out her website.
Alongside the evening of music is a café menu prepared by Ruben and Paloma of That Pikliz Jawn who last brought their cuisine to Studio 34 in February. See more from them here and come taste it on May 14th!
Doors and café open at 8:00pm, music starts at 8:30pm. Suggested admission is $10–$20 at the door, via cash or all the payment apps.
Note that Studio 34 is:
- Up one flight of stairs
- A sober space
