Free At Noon

Join us for the Free At Noon at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, as Rayland Baxter perform a live midday concert on Friday


This summer, American solo act Rayland Baxter released his debut full-length album Imaginary Man. The country-inspired record helped solidify Baxter as a bona fide up and comer in the alt-country scene. This more polished work retains much of the organic sound of some of Baxter’s earlier work while fine-tuning the aspects that promise to make his career a long and fruitful one.

RSVP to reserve your spot for this week's Free at Noon in Philadelphia, or tune-in at 88.5FM and worldwide at XPN.org.

Recent Release: Imaginary Man
Release Date: August 14, 2015
