There is something stirring in Philadelphia. On the heels of their first mini-tour, theTemple University trio The Humble (formerly Mo Lowda & The Humble) is beginning to disrupt the music scene in the Northeast. While their unique fusion of sound has hooked its earliest fans, comparisons to one band -- Kings of Leon -- seem to follow the group around. When asked what THEY think they are, bassist Nate Matulis says, "ehe easy answer is alternative rock or progressive. We've got so many different influences coming in from every end of the spectrum, so it makes it very hard to really define our sound simply." Those influences include names you rarely hear lumped together: My Morning Jacket, Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, Jaco Pastorius, Pink Floyd and Victor Wooten, among others.
