From a press release:

The Northeastern Pennsylvania music scene has a lot to offer, not only in support of our area’s creative voice, but also as a conduit for success keeping our young people motivated, and proactive – and acoustic duo Skip Monday is proof.

A year in the making, Skip Monday has completed their five-song EP “Wildfire,” which will be on display and for sale this Saturday, June 13 at The Woodlands Inn in Wilkes-Barre. The band, backed by local Internet marketing company Coal Creative, will give the first 100 attendees a copy of the EP free of charge.

The doors open at 7 p.m. in Club Evolution at The Woodlands Inn (1073 Hwy. 315, Wilkes-Barre).

In further support, Coal Creative will also sponsor a “tab,” which offers each attendee their first drink free of charge as an extra incentive for everyone to come out and enjoy some homegrown music.

Featuring songs “Wildfire,” “Until You’re Kissing Me (Up Against a Wall),” “Can’t Not Think of You,” “Give Me Love,” and “Cliché,” the “Wildfire” EP is the original work of Kaylin Karr and Nathan Montella and will be available at the show and on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, CD Baby, and ReverbNation.

This is Coal Creative’s first attempt in band related-marketing, undertaking the project free of charge in hopes of helping a talented young local band realize their potential. It remains the company’s mission to help further the dreams of young people, to foster creativity, and maintain a positive outlook for Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Coal Creative founder Gerard Durling first discovered Skip Monday through NEPA Scene’s Open Mic Night, currently held on Tuesdays at Thirst T’s Bar & Grill in Olyphant as NEPA Scene’s Got Talent. Winning the audience vote for best act the first time they played, the duo is set to compete for a grand prize in the Got Talent finals on June 23.

“Northeastern Pennsylvania is home to some of the best musicians alive. There’s a long list of them who’ve ‘made it,’ and another list of hometown natives who continue to kill it globally – but fame isn’t the point. What about NEPA’s strengths, abilities, and creative spirit? Turn any corner, go into any of NEPA Scene’s open mic nights at Thirst T’s, and you’ll find talent. Solid talent,” Coal Creative wrote on their website.
