Music on Main concluded it’s summer series with Kevin Cox and Masila Muli on August 7. Kevin Cox is a songwriter and math teacher originally from West Chester, PA.

Afterward, he founded Elysium Creative Group, where he serves as Director of Operations and Lead Engineer. Masila is also involved with musical acts in the Philadelphia area.
