Performed by Steven Delopoulos and Johnny Phillips of the award-winning band Burlap to Cashmere, THE SOUNDS OF SILENCE is a throwback to the early 70’s Greenwich Village folk scene. You will hear the songs of Simon and Garfunkel and the era that surrounded them. Bob Dylan, John Denver, Harry Chapin, Cat Stevens, Don McLain and many more of your favorite artists from that genre. Delopoulos and Phillips will take you back to that timeless era of music when lyrics and melody meant something more.


Burlap To Cashmere first made waves with their critically acclaimed and Dove Award-winning debut album, ANYBODY OUT THERE. They quickly established a name for themselves with their unique sound, energetic live shows and introspective lyrics underscored by their remarkable musicianship. Signed to A+M Records the album went on to sell nearly half a million records worldwide, propelling Burlap to stardom. Their extensive tour schedule took the band across the U.S. and overseas to Europe and South America. The band has been privileged to play to U.S troops in the Middle East and even to play before the Pope in Rome to a crowd of over three million. Getting extensive radio play and opening for Hootie and the Blowfish, Train, and Elvis Costello to name a few.


After an extended hiatus, the band returned with their eponymous 2011 album, Burlap To Cashmere, produced by music legend Mitchell Froom and released through Sony Music. The album was highly praised in numerous media outlets including USA Today, NPR, the New York Post, and American Songwriter Magazine.


The group has been featured on many high-­profile platforms including Artists At Google, Amazon, the At Guitar Center Podcast with Nic Harcourt, and Lightning 100’s Live At Nashville Sunday Night.
