Eljuri, Ryan Tennis, and Argonaut & Wasp (LVwithLOVE Music)

In this episode of Lehigh Valley with Love Music, co-hosts George Wacker and Phil Reese speak with three musical artists who all played Musikfest this past summer.

We recently interviewed Eljuri, Ryan Tennis, and Argonaut & Wasp and combined them into one episode. You can also listen/watch their individual episodes at the links below.

Thank you to our sponsors, Michael Bernadyn with Re/Max Realty and Molly’s Irish Grille and Sports Pub!

Born in Guayaquil Ecuador and raised in New York City, Cecilia Villar Eljuri is a compulsive genre-fuser writing songs that mirror the experiences of her life. Touted as one of the top Latina guitar players in the world, she blends the sounds and rhythms she heard from her mother’s piano, her father’s vinyl records, her siblings’ CDs and from the clubs she frequented on Manhattan’s lower east side. WEBSITE / VIDEO EPISODE

Hailing from Philadelphia, America’s City of Brotherly Love, Ryan Tennis’ music is all about dismantling boundaries and bringing people together. Genre-defiant by nature and with diversity at its core, his rousing songs are infused with the rhythms from the many countries he’s visited during his extensive tours. While his performances are dynamic and danceable, Tennis’ voice and songs have a disarming sweetness that lowers your defenses and lets you breathe easy. WEBSITE / VIDEO EPISODE

Argonaut & Wasp was created with the goal of combining the vulnerability of a rock show with the energy of a house club. Formed in the dorms of the University of Vermont in 2013 the band started as a DJ / live show, playing packed basement parties to sold out festivals. In 2015, they packed their gear and moved to Brooklyn where they built a studio in Crown Heights. After releasing numerous singles and EP’s independently, they signed with +1 Records and are released their debut album, STARLIGHT 99 on April 30 2021. WEBSITE / VIDEO EPISODE

August John Lutz II
Electric Guitar

Joshua Machiz

Atwood Magazine had this to say about Dirty Dollhouse…

“In all Dirty Dollhouse’s musical works, you can feel the homey Nashville vibe, wrapped like a warm blanket around your body. Her music is inspired by folk, country, and pop so as to create a brand new intimate genre of her own. She is often compared to artists like Nicole Atkins, Kacey Musgraves, and Brandi Carlile. Mitchell, who has got a very unique vocal range, considers herself a singer/songwriter; as her songs represent an autobiographical vibe, it almost feels like reading and flicking through someone else’s diary pages.”

We encourage you to watch the video portion of ths podcast, which you can find in the show notes, to see what the Newtown Book and Record Exchange looks like as we were balancing microphones before this interview.

Of course, thank you to our sponsors, Michael Bernadyn of Re Max Realty and MOlly’s Irish Grille and Sports Pub in Bethlehem.

Laurel Canyon | Lennon, Punk, and Allentown’s Lehigh Parkway

Laurel Canyon consists of two guitarist-vocalists, Nicholas Gillespie (26) and Serg Cereja (22), who met two years ago through a mutual friend in their hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania. After connecting over a shared interest in poetry, the duo began to rehearse rock ‘n’ roll standards in Serg’s garage. By October 2020, Nick and Serg began composing original songs together, the first of which, “Two Times Emptiness,” was recorded in New York City by Craig Almquist and Ayad Al Adhamy. Their next single “Enemy Lines” was released on June 25, 2021.

I sat down with Laurel Canyon at Allentown’s Lehigh Parkway, a spot where John Lennon is said to have spent some time in the 1970s.

We talk about Lennon, influences, covid, the music scene, streaming services, and what’s next up.

Take it from a Local, a Lehigh Valley with Love Podcast, is hosted by Allison Pittenger, a 20-year-old college junior.

“A Bethlehem native, I grew up going to Musikfest every summer, seeing shows at the State Theatre, and experiencing all that the Lehigh Valley has to offer. I’m a current student at East Stroudsburg University studying Video & Television production. I love theme parks, musical theatre, traveling, and of course creating content for people to enjoy. I began as an intern with Lehigh Valley with Love in early 2020 and have continued to work with them on various projects, and now this podcast! The goal of Take It From a Local is to hear from Lehigh Valley residents of past and present and to get their views and opinions on the many things to experience in the area. You can find me and follow my journey through life over on my Instagram @alli.pitt. I hope you enjoy the podcast!”
