Ali Awan





Weekend Warrior - July 5 - 7

Sixteen Jackies’ Joey Demarco and Marley McNamara will be celebrating their birthdays this evening at Johnny Brenda’s. Demarco and his bandmates are co-headlining the festivities with rising singer-songwriter Ali Awan. Moody, indie popsters The Homophones have come out of the woodwork for support, led by the smooth, baritone wit of Jason Ferraro. Langor, the solo project of Brian Langor (Needle Points, SW!MS, Sweatheart), will also be on hand to help kick-start the party. Beat the heat with plenty of cold beers, cool tunes, and a stacked lineup of local Philly talent! – Alexis V.

New Track: "Be a Light" - Ali Awan

If a temporary summer trip is in order, “Be a Light,” the new single from Ali Awan, could provide the sound. Harmonized vocals fortify the loose, laidback, psych-folk ride. The grit of the guitar strums are smoothed over by the shimmer of keys, as the continuous churn of the rhythm marches onward in a direct, mind-tunneling expanse. He'll be sharing a billing at Johnny Brenda's on Thursday, August 9, with Lightninging and Mesmeric Haze.

Debut Ali Awan Single Release Available for Streaming & Purchase

Philly singer-songwriter Ali Awan recently caught our ear with his “Citadel Blues” single release. Its title track rolls out onto the street, riding a compact, loose, percussive groove. Infected with that casual vibe, the song’s protagonist searches for a deeper connection, while “Last Resort” tells a tale of yearning with a folk-country foundation. Intensified by sunny accents of violin, which make way for bouncing piano keys, the song echoes a timeless sentiment, but is steeped in tradition.
