Jump:  The Philly Music Project “Wussy, Josh Olmstead Band and Bastards of Earle @ Milkboy” “A band’s first gig is always a special occasion, and on a rainy Thursday night at MilkBoy Philly last week, Bastards of Earle hit the ground running and didn’t look back. The Philadelphia band – headed by Todd Zamostien on vocals and guitar, along with guitarist, Hank Foreman and the solid rhythm section of bassist and drummer, Brett and Bart Riley – have yet to release any music. But if their live debut was any indication of their studio sound, they’ll be just fine…It was easy to tell the band was having a blast at their first show and played the narrow upstairs venue as if it were an arena”  [To read the full review, click the title link!!]

Philadelphia Magazine – “Watch: Bastards of Earle Sing Downtown Girl”     “Video for a new song revels in its Philly-ness.”

Jump:  The Philly Music Project “Going Local: Weekend Picks”     “A veteran of the local music scene, Philadelphia native, Todd Zamostien, is the sole driving force behind the alternative, folk and country-tinged, Bastards of Earle.   Along with a diverse array of musical artists, many of Zamostien’s influences come from the sights and sounds of the city we know and love.   Calming and introspective, Bastards of Earle is a must-see.”

That Music Magazine “Bastards of Earle’s Todd Zamostien talks Steve Earle and Other Influences”     “With the current resurgence and interest that Americana and alt-country music has been seeing lately, having so many diverse artists to discover is just fabulous and Bastards of Earle joining that team is just the icing on the cake.”  [To read the full interview, click the title link!!]

Radio Crystal Blue “The Fire 3/4/14″     “Todd is something of an icon in terms of Philly’s own music scene.  I last saw him when he was performing with North Lawrence Midnight Singers at the now-closed Tritone.  Todd’s solo effort was full of energy; generally kicking up energy with his tomato-red shoes, also sporting a brown suit jacket and old-school hat.  The songs fit nicely on the musical shelf near those of Springsteen and Westerberg…his smile and impassioned delivery [was] a delight to watch.  A favorite tune from the set, and the available media on his website, is the tune, Weightless.”
