Nominate Your Favorite Philly Artists for May Artist of the Month!

Featured Image by Juan Di Nella

April showers bring May flowers, but it is YOUR time to nominate Rock On Philly’s Artist of the Month for May!

What does the Artist of the Month receive? An editorial feature that will sit pretty on the homepage for an entire month. This feature will be promoted across our social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) and the Artist of the Month will even receive special consideration for brand partnerships that Rock On Philly has in the works. Pretty cool, huh?

In the comment section below, let us know the Philly-area bands/artists you love from now until Sunday, April 17th. Our team will narrow down the choices to five selections and these artists will be included on our Artist of the Month Poll, which will launch Monday, April 18th and run until Friday, April 22nd at 5PM EST. The Artist with the most votes will become our Artist of the Month for May, but it all starts with YOUR suggestions!

Nominate your favorite Philly-area band/artist in the comment section below.

Nominations have closed. Please vote in our Artist of the Month poll located at the bottom-right of the homepage.

In the meantime, check out the feature on our April Artist of the Month, Maria Maslin, here!

    I nominate David Uosikkinen’s In The Pocket for May’s Artist of the Month. In the Pocket encompasses many genres of music through its choices of song and its rotating members. First and foremost you have David himself that is the mastermind behind this idea.
    David, along with Fran Smith,Jr, Rob Hyman, Eric Bazillian and John Lilley all hail from the Philadelphia great “The Hooters”. Wally Smith and Steve Butler are usually in the mix from Smash Palace. The always entertaining and energetic Richard Bush from the A’s can be seen at most shows as well as Greg Davis of Beru Revue. Jay Davidson smooths it out with his sax playing. Ben Arnold, Cliff Hillis, Jeffrey Gaines, Graham Alexander, Jim Boggia among many other singer/songwriters are the sides that accompany the Main Entree of music. Dessert is offered by the likes of ZouZou Monsour, Patty Smyth and Charlie and Richie Ingui from the Soul Survivors. I am sure I have forgotten many; the list is always growing.
    If you want to see a great feast of music, In The Pocket is the all U can eat buffet.

    I nominate Curtis Jr. as Artist Of The Month for the month of May. Fronted by singer/songwriter Tom Curtis Jr, this band is on the upswing. After just returning from four successful shows at this year’s SXSW Conference, Curtis Jr has been billing with some of the best touring bands to roll thru Philly, including Bumpin Uglies, Slim Kings w/Liberty DeVitto, and Pasadena among others. And with a new CD currently in production, I fully expect the Philadelphia region to catch on to this band.
