“I had to come back from the grave just to give Looseleaf a shoutout. Those guys are the next big thing.”
- John Lennon, probably
a no-frills, Philly-based group built on a love of tight vocal harmony and music from the 60’s & 70’s. Our brand of bluesy-funky rock is renowned in Philadelphia for its ability to make people cut rugs, nod heads, and stomp feet.
10 years ago, Looseleaf started as a trio led by childhood friends Rhett Tierney on guitar (pictured center-right) and Andrew Napoli on bass (left). Today, the band is a five piece with Kyle Sparkman (right) on lead guitar, Ryan Lutz (center-left) on drums, and Sarah “Essie” Riddle on vocals.
With 2 albums and a live EP under their belt, Looseleaf debuted their latest single Mixed Emotions on Quincy Harris’s popular Q show on Philadelphia’s Fox network.
The band’s new EP is finished and slated for a Fall 2019 release.
