No Longer a Solo World for Heat Thunder at WCL May 13

No Longer a Solo World for Heat Thunder at WCL May 13

We were first introduced to Joe Montone, a.k.a. Heat Thunder, through his debut EP Melody, Love & Soul, a medley of tracks that eventually inspired a collaboration with New York-based filmmaker Evan Cohen. The short film captures the spacious sounds of the record, which was heavily-influenced by the wooded landscapes of Montone's hometown, Doylestown, a place that The Deli is quite familiar with, having birthed favorites like Aderbat, Night Panther and many others. Since then, the project has grown into a full band that consists of William Chamuris (Commonwealth Choir) on drums, Luming Hao (Our Griffins) on guitar and vocals, and bassist Matthew Philips, who also produced Heat Thunder's single, "Solo World" (below), their first recording effort as a group. They'll be headlining the upstairs room at World Cafe Live this evening supported by pals Delco Pacers and The Naked Sun. World Cafe Live, 3025 Walnut St., 9pm, $8, All Ages - H.M. Kauffman
