Shelf Life
Shelf Life is the eclectic solo project of long time Philadelphia musician Scotty Leitch. From the small steel town of Coatesville to the city of brotherly love in 2008, Leitch briefly attended Temple University. After making a name for himself in the local scene as a drummer, bassist, and part time sound engineer, he decided to embark on a musical journey focused solely around his own personal experiences. "I found myself playing 3 basement shows a week, backing sometimes 5 different bands and finally realized my efforts were better suited for a single musical outlet. I love people and I love music but the two rarely meshed in a way that I found gratifying." says Leitch. "Three years ago a man in a van ran a stop sign and crushed the entire lower portion of my right leg. Everything changed after that. I ditched the 4 track, bought a computer, and began writing songs I believed were representative of me as a musician and a human being." Influences on his debut record "Everyone Make Happy" range from Ween to Modest Mouse, Pinback to more recent acts such as Real Estate, Alex G, or Elvis Depressedly.

Sean Henry
Sean Henry is the stage name of musician Sean Henry Posila. Settling on his own name after Bandcamp and cassette releases under the likes of Boy Crush and High Pop on such rising underground labels as Run for Cover and Birdtapes, Sean Henry recently finds home with Double Double Whammy, run by members of LVL UP and the first label of kindred musical spirit, Frankie Cosmos.

Joined live by hometown heroes, Dan George and Colin Sullivan, this current incarnation sees the Connecticut raised and now Brooklyn based songwriter in his truest form. His music's blend of a muscular rhythm section with tooth achingly sweet guitar chords, updates the sounds of 90's alternative music titans into the present tense. The songs are coated with Sean Henry's intimate and sometimes fragile voice, a near falsetto that invites you into his private world of daydreams, insecurities, and reveries. His lyrics paint portraits in miniature, not unlike a botanist pruning a beloved bonsai tree.

Sean Henry is currently working on a full length album slated for release in early in 2017.
