In recent months, Philadelphia-based singer-songwriter Mutlu has begun to attract a national audience for his appealing blend of soul, reggae, hip-hop, and Brazilian jazz. Drawing inspiration from Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers, Bob Marley, and Antonio Carlos Jobim, Mutlu resists pigeonholing with the help of cool grooves and a quick wit. Click the link above to hear him perform live in concert from WXPN and World Café Live in Philadelphia.

Mutlu's songs sound foreign and familiar, risky and romantic. Fans outside of Philadelphia got a taste of his music during well-received stints with Amos Lee on Lee's tours in America and abroad. Mutlu's performances ultimately caught the attention of a major label, which this week released his full-length debut: Livin' It features the likes of Daryl Hall, Amos Lee, and G. Love.
