Sun Airway story in JUMP Philly Magazine

with one comment

So if you  haven’t heard/seen yet, there’s a new music magazine out on the streets of Philadelphia called JUMP Philly. It’s a quarterly magazine that only covers music within the city limits, no further. For the premiere issue, I wrote a one of the cover stories about spending a day with Sun Airway and I even got the cover photo too. Pretty sweet. You can check out my article below or find a location to pick up a physical copy HERE.

It’s early afternoon on one of the coldest days of the year in late January. Jon Barthmus, the brainchild behind Sun Airway, sits in his quiet, retro-style South Philadelphia home, nestled between two 80-something-year old Italian women.

His brand new record player is spinning some 50’s big band vinyl that complements the atmosphere perfectly. Blanch, his extremely friendly cat, rolls around playing with nothing in particular, completely satisfied. Barthmus sifts through a variety of tea bags before settling on Zen Green Tea.

He’s patiently waiting for the other half of Sun Airway’s recording duo, Patrick Marsceill, to pick him up.

The two of them have a one o’clock appointment to get a straight razor shave, sometimes know as a cutthroat shave, at The Art of Shaving on Walnut Street.

Marsceill is driving down from Fishtown so he’s running a little late. As usual.
