Who Makes Cubbage’s ‘Core 20’?

Back in January, Doylestown-based performer CJ Dunleavy alerted us to his “Philadelphia Indie” Spotify playlist, featuring 70+ noteworthy songs by local and regional artists. The playlist has since been passed on to Spotify’s algorithm curators, virtually ensuring that many more ears will have a chance to hear some amazing, under-the-radar tunes.

It seems that more performers are getting in on the playlist curation trend — including the Lehigh Valley Music Awards’ reigning Outstanding New Band/Soloist recipient, Cubbage.

The pop-jazz singer-songwriter has recently released “Cubbage’s Core 20,” a folk, indie, and pop playlist consisting of 20 songs from performers with whom Cubbage has shared a stage or met on the road. Locals to us like Neil Grover and Billy Bauer Band make appearances, as do standouts including Waverunner, The New Schematics, and more.
