Nicholas Krolak, bassist/composer

Terell Stafford: "exciting yet passionate; always telling a story"

Matt Silver WRTI: "a different kind of songwriter—perhaps a different kind of jazz musician altogether … the bass-playing, modern embodiment of Walt Whitman… [using] his music to celebrate and also reconcile the competing and contradictory nature of the two worlds he straddles: the natural and the urban."

Kyle Whiting WXPN: "To Nicholas Krolak, jazz isn't just music to put on in the background during a dinner party, or to be listened to casually at a low-key dive bar. It's a vehicle for empowering, uplifting social justice. Voice = Power, the Philly jazz bassist's latest record, examines this concept thoroughly"

Ben Schachter: "thoughtful, sensitive, and humble" --- "will undoubtedly be a contributor to the music world at large" David Wong: "As a composer he has strong ties to the history of jazz while still sounding original and fresh. There is a wonderful sense of freedom along side clear melodies and strong harmonies."

A.D. Amorosi Jazz Philadelphia: "melding of nature, nurture, jazz, and vibe—the freedom of it all—is exactly the point where Krolak is concerned."

Mike Lorenz, guitarist/composer/educator, hails from Bethlehem, PA. For over a decade, Mike has kept a busy schedule as a freelancing performer and educator, leading his trio/quartet in performances up and down the Northeast Corridor on many festivals and club stages. He leads and co-leads several groups, including the Witherbees, MULTI MANSIONS, and THRRR. Having released his first record in 2011, Mike's latest release, with the Witherbees, will be released in June 2021.

As an educator, his innovative mindset and affinity for implementing technology have made him a valuable member of the faculty at the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts and the Moravian College Summer Jazz Program.
