Album Notes
The B-Side Prophets came to fruition during the Fall of 2006 when local Philadelphia
songwriter TJ Leis presented a collection of his own work to the acoustic duo of Matt Kresge
and Bernie Gillespie, better known as Philly’s own Shady Groove. The fusion of TJ’s
melodic sensibility along with Bernie’s incomparable ear for harmony immediately
breathed new life into these songs. Having recently received the ‘Best Guitarist of
Philadelphia’ accolade from the nationwide Emergenza festival in 2005, the addition of
Matt’s creative guitar work lifted the songs to an even higher musical plateau. It was
clear that something musically special was unfolding before their ears. The addition of
versatile drummer and friend Wyatt Patterson proved to be the final piece to the musical

Upon first listen, it becomes clear that The B-Side Prophets greatest asset is musical
diversity and emphasis on harmonies. Drawing on styles ranging from everywhere from Reggae,
Folk, Brazillian, Ska, Rock, Americana and more, the B-Sides eclectic mix of music and
emphasis on melody quickly gained the attention of Philadelphia audiences.

T.J. Long time no see. I bought your cd and loved it. Especially The Catch, and Leaving by Morning. Good Luck.

This Cd was a great mix of genres and no matter what song I'm listening to, it relaxes me like music should. 2 thumbs up!
