Point Entertainment presents Aimee Mann with Special Guest Ted Leo
Thursday, December 14, 2017
After several albums with ‘Til Tuesday, Mann began her solo career in 1993 with the album Whatever and made a name for herself through her independent success and the founding of her record label, SuperEgo Records. In addition to her solo albums, she has appeared on many film soundtracks, most notably Paul Thomas Anderson’s Magnolia, with “Save Me” landing her Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for Best Original Song. Her latest album, Mental Illness shows off Mann’s rich, incisive and wry melancholia in an almost all-acoustic format, with a “finger-picky” style inspired by some of her favorite ‘60s and ‘70s folk-rock records, augmented by haunting strings arranged by her longtime producer, Paul Bryan, and includes collaborator Ted Leo. She also worked with Ted Leo on a more rock-oriented duo project, releasing a self-titled album under the name The Both.

Her 2002 debut CD “If the Blues Had Wings” was featured as the hot debut in the October/November 2004 issue of Blues Revue Magazine. Blues Revue referred to her as the next Bonnie Raitt and raved “Philly’s Deb Callahan has the pipes, the songs and the raw talent to graduate to the next level”. Deb released her fifth CD entitled “Sweet Soul” in the fall of 2015 on her own independent label, Blue Pearl Records. Deb and guitar player Allen James travelled to Los Angeles in February 2015 to record with renowned drummer and producer Tony Braunagel at Ultratone Studios.

Greg Sover Band (5:15 – 6:15) – 2016 was a big year for Philadelphia rocker Greg Sover. He released his debut album Songs of a Renegade in August. Since then he has headlined at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, Puck in Doylestown, PA and Steel City Coffeehouse in Phoenixville, PA. In addition he has had the opportunity to support noted touring acts Johnny A. and Garland Jeffreys at Sellersville Theater in Sellersville, PA and the Marcus King Band at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia in January, 2017. Sover got his first spin on WXPN in 2016. Philadelphia’s influential noncommercial Triple A radio station featured the song “Moment” from Songs of a Renegade. He also was invited by WXPN’s Helen Leicht to be a featured performer on the station’s annual Philly Local Home for the Holidays recording session that they aired. Sover’s early success is due in large part to his band of three Philly veterans with extensive resumes – bassist and album co-producer Garry Lee, guitarist Allen James and drummer Tom Walling. The three are best known as Deb Callahan’s solid backing band and their cohesiveness as a unit enabled Sover to develop as an artist and take his music to the next level. They recorded Songs of a Renegade with him and also perform with him live. In addition to the 4-piece band, which features Sover on electric guitar, Sover also plays acoustic guitar in a duo format with Lee and a trio format with Lee and James. This flexibility enables him to perform in almost any setting for various audiences and he looks forward to doing more shows and touring in 2017. “I’m looking forward to the new venues and the new places I’ll get to play promoting this album” said Sover. “I plan on going all over the place. I’m pretty excited about that.” Sover became fascinated with the guitar at age 13. His father taught him the French song “La Maladie d’Amour” and Sover took it from there, teaching himself guitar, songwriting and finally singing. He first gave notice that he is on track to be the next big thing out of Philly when he won the 2015 Hard Rock Rising competition at Philadelphia’s Hard Rock Cafe.
