CP S13 EP24 2019

Monday June 17, 2019 – One of the most consistent issues I hear both musicians and patrons talk about are “empty rooms.”  As a former venue operator, and a life-long performing musician, I get it.  I play in rooms with only a handful of people present.  I’ve booked shows that only a handful of people have attended.  There is no one single answer that will solve this issue.

I’ve performed in support of world renown musicians to empty rooms …as in only ten people, and five of them were associated with the show.  This actually happened to me not long ago, where I played as the opener for an nationally recognized award winning singer-songwriter in front of ten people. I’ve also seen and performed in support of platinum selling bands that drew only a couple hundred people to the show.

Some venues are “concert” rooms – meaning the band is totally responsible for how many people attend – it’s essentially a popularity contest.  If you’re a new band, or an up and coming local band, chances are likely you won’t have many people in “your” audience, and you hope to draw from those who show up to see the headliner – which supposedly does have a local draw.

Some venues are established restaurant / bar / music rooms.  Some have a regular clientele. We all want to play those rooms. Some do not and therefore rely on the popularity of the band  -the band draw.  I’ve managed rooms like that, and performed at more than I can remember.  Sometimes there is a crowd to play to, and in some cases the draw is minimal or not there at all.

My father, who owned a jazz venue in the early 60s, also complained about this issue – both as the owner of a venue and as a professional working musician.  The issue is not new.  However, today the issue is exacerbated by there being many hundreds of places to play in our region, and several thousands of bands and solo acts wishing to perform publicly – both from our own region as well as those out touring.

SUPPORT LIVE MUSIC – It’s the lifeblood of our industry.

CP S13 EP23 2019

Monday June 10, 2019

According to the Denver Post, in an article dated SEPTEMBER 14, 2018, “Denver’s music industry is growing faster than its energy, aerospace and biotech industries.”  The story was apparently culled from an academic report, “A Quantitative Analysis of Colorado’s Music Industry” (May 2018) authored by Michael Seman, PhD, Director of Creative Industries Research and Policy, University of Colorado Denver College of Arts & Media.

The essence of the article is that “Statewide, the music industry is responsible for more than 16,000 jobs and just over $1.4 billion in revenue. The most robust components in terms of employment and revenue are “Musicians, Managers, and Agents” and “Live Events” pointing to Colorado’s strength in creating music and showcasing it live.”

BEST OF THE DECADE – 2010

As we get closer to declaring the BEST of the DECADE on the Colorado Playlist – here’s where we started in 2010, the first year of this blog site.  Here are the TOP 20 of 2010 .. which is your favorite?

#1 – ALBUM of the Year – Mollie O’Brien & Rich Moore – Saints and Sinners (Remington Road)
Genre/Style: Folk, americana
Sample Tracks: New Boots, Losers, Dead and Lonely
Added: August 2010
Notes: 3 months at #1 should be enough to land in the #1 best spot of 2010, but it sure didn’t hurt that 98% of our respondents had it in their top 10 also.  This is what happens after 25 years of marriage, two kids in college, and myriad personal awards and accolades .. . can ya say YOWZA BABY!?  This certainly deserves winning Album of the Year for 2010.

2.  Nathaniel Rateliff – In Memory of Loss (Rounder)Genre/Style: Rock, folk, modern, alternative
Sample Tracks: Early Spring Till, Brakeman, Whimper and Wail
Added: March 2010
Notes:Nathaniel Ratefliff had an amazing run of success during 2009 and 2010, leaving behind one band (Born In the Flood) slated to be signed to a major rock label, only to be picked up by Rounder Records for the more folk/rock oriented approach he was taking with an entirely separate set of players.  Amazon.com selected In Memory of Loss as the number one album in 2010 that you might have missed

3. Halden Wofford & the Hi-Beams – Sinners & Saints (self) Genre/Style: Country, alternative country, retro
Sample Tracks: Tear It Down, Pill Poppin Country Weirdo, Sinners & Saints
Added: August 2010
Notes: After debuting at #3 in our September issue, the Hi-Beams road this one to #2 in statewide airplay for two consecutive months, right behind Mollie O’Brien & Rich Moore, before settling in at #4 in December.

4.  Danielle Ate the Sandwich – Two Bedroom Apartment (self)Genre/Style: Folk, modern
Sample Tracks: Two Bedroom Apartment, El Paso, 17 & 53
Added: June 2010
Notes: Popularity wins when spins don’t. Since it debuted in our July issue, Two Bedroom Apartment more or less settled down in the middle of the pack in spins statewide, peaking at #10 in September.  The album gained top five status in the Best Of by virtue of those who voted her… she’s got crazy loyal fans for sure, especially along the Front Range.

5. Fierce Bad Rabbit – Spools of Thread (self)Genre/Style: Rock, indie/alternative
Sample Tracks: All I Have Is You, Everything’s Alright, Love Doesn’t Run
Added: September 2010
Notes: One of the most popular and exciting new rock bands to emerge out of Fort Collins in the past few years, FBR’s last two releases, their debut and this one, have been favorites at stations like KRFC and KCSU (Colorado State University).  If this record were to make it onto playlists at rock friendly stations like KRCC (Colorado Springs), KOTO (Telluride) and KDUR (Durango) it could hang around near the top of the spins charts for many months to come… it’s at least five tracks deep.

6.  Paper Bird – When the River Took Flight (self)Genre/Style: Folk, americana
Sample Tracks: Lost Boys, Dead As a Dead Man’s Bones, Colorado
Added: July 2010
Notes: Paper Bird continues to be one of the region’s most loved and popular americana/folk bands.  The album stayed in the mid-chart region for the past several months, before breaking into the top ten in December.  As the year ends it seems to be picking up steam.  Look for increased chart activity in the first few months of the new year.

7. Otis Taylor – Clovis People, Vol 3. (Telarc)Genre/Style: Blues, trance blues
Sample Tracks: Little Willie, Hands On Your Stomach, Harry Turn the Music Up
Added: May 2010
Notes: Otis is literally a living legend among contemporary Colorado musicians, with a history that goes back to the 70s.  He has released ten albums in the past decade, all of which have been consistently good.  Coloradoans Ron Miles, Larry Thompson and Otis’ daughter Cassie are all featured performers on the album along with Gary Moore on guitar.

8.  Great American Taxi – Reckless Habits (Thirty Tigers)Genre/Style: Rock, roots rock, jamband
Sample Tracks: One of These Days, New Millennium Blues, Get No Better
Added: February 2010
Notes: I grew up on country-rock in the late sixties and early seventies.  It’s no wonder I love this record so much, as it’s full of the sounds of the south and the mountain west.  It  has been a favorite also of our wonderful network of reporting stations throughout the year, anchoring the springtime at # 1 for two months and only failing to make the monthly top thirty once in eight months.

9. Boulder Acoustic Society – Champion of Disaster EP (self) Genre/Style: Folk, americana
Sample Tracks: Shelter, Champion of Disaster
Added: September 2010
Notes: this ep was a stunner. it shows a side of the Boulder Acoustic Society they hinted at in their 2009 Punch release but are only now fulfilling. Expect this one to continue gaining in spins as we enter the new year.

10. Sweet Sunny South – Carried Off by a Twister (2Dolla Reccas)Genre/Style: Bluegrass, americana
Sample Tracks: Ghost of Gram, You Never Even Knew My Name, Mississippi
Added: April 2010
Notes: There have been rumors swirling among some in the americana/bluegrass scene for several months that SSS was calling it a day, allowing members to focus on outside projects like Honey Don’t and Hard Pressed. It been a successful run of four albums for this band, with this one in particular leading the way in popularity among the RMMN reporting stations…. making it the #1 Bluegrass album for 2010.

11. The Apples In Stereo – Travellers in Space & Time (Yep Roc) Genre/Style: Rock/Pop, Indie/Alternative
Sample Tracks: Dream About the Future, Dance Floor, No One In the World
Added: April 2010
Notes: the Apples haven’t been an active participating member of the scene here in Colorado on a regular basis for many years. Now based out of Kentucky, Robert and the crew continue to show love for the city and the state from whence they came. It’s nice to see homegrown acts grow up, move on, and stay popular in their hometown.

12. Musketeer Gripweed – Dyin’ Day (self) Genre/Style: rock, jamband, blues, funk
Sample Tracks: Dyin’ Day, River Risin’
Added: September 2010
Notes: Debut album. We might call this revivalist-rock. Hard working band with a highly energized gospel rock blues vibe that is beginning to gain significant cred around the state. This is the surprise debut hit record of the year…. between the mad crazy loyal fans and the increasing airplay statewide, expect this one to stick around a while. “The final word must go to frontman Jason Downing, whose vocal performance is nothing short of incredible… This really might be the album of the year.” – Conor Hooley Scene Magazine Jan 2011.  “…what makes the album so good is that it’s not a copy. Somehow, while paying solid homage to the Crowes and other bands like them, Musketeer Gripweed has found their own voice. And it’s a powerful one, indeed.” – Local Love – Marquee Magazine – Jan 2011

13. Grant Gordy – Grant Gordy (self) Genre/Style: bluegrass, nu-grass, neo-acoustic
Sample Tracks: Blues for Dawg, Goodbye Liza Jane, Diggin’ Hargreaves
Added: April 2010
Notes: a bluegrass “purist” friend of mine said this isn’t bluegrass. Don’t tell that to David “Dawg” Grisman, for whom Grant is the lead guitarist, and for whom Blues for Dawg was written. Incorporating elements of the neo-acoustic movement, including classical and jazz motifs, this instrumental album has consistently been one of the most popular at RMMN reporting stations in 2010.  The album was picked by Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s senior editor, Scott Nygaard, as one of their Essential Albums of 2010.

14. Elephant Revival – Break in the Clouds (Ruff Shod) Genre/Style: folk, transcendental-folk
Sample Tracks: Feathers Rise, Rhythm of the Road, Barefoot Friend
Added: November 2010
Notes: Break in the Clouds represents the maturation of the “transcendal-folk” sound the band has been developing since their 2009 debut. As it came out in November, I expect to see this record continue to gain in spins for 2011, potentially making it one of the top re-current releases in next year’s Best of edition.

15. Jeff Finlin – The Tao of Motor Oil (Bent Wheel) Genre/Style: Rock, alternative adult contemporary
Sample Tracks: East by West, Hands Off the Wheel, Stones Must Roll
Added: July 2010
Notes: Jeff is a well established Fort Collins singer-songwriter, once signed to a major label, who has traveled the country and England over his years in the business. “Tao” represents yet again Jeff’s ability to weave stories with visually graphic and stunning lyricism. A mid-charter for most of the past six months, if for no other reason than more stations don’t have the album in their collections.

16. John Common & Blinding Flashes of Light – Beautiful Empty (Free School) Genre/Style: Rock, alternative adult contemporary
Sample Tracks: Same Scar, In My Neighborhood, Love Is A Shark
Added: December 2009
Notes: John has left us with an amazing array of recordings over the past decade, with his alt-country-folk-rock group Rainville to two solo efforts and now this one with Blinding Flashes of Light that not only showcases John’s voice and songs, but the equally compelling and stunning Jess DiNicola as his vocal partner. Beautiful Empty sped to the top of the spins charts for two months in 2010. You can read more about my thoughts here.

17. Blue Canyon Boys – Mountain Bound (self) Genre/Style: bluegrass
Sample Tracks: No Worries In My Pocket, Rocky Mountain Bound, Don’t Change
Added: July 2010
Notes: One of the most popular and celebrated bluegrass bands in Colorado today, on this, their fourth release in the last five years, the boys show off six new originals and eight bluegrass/country classics. Winner – 2008 Telluride Bluegrass Festival band competition.

18. Romano Paoletti – Story of a Lifetime (self) Genre/Style: country, folk, americana
Sample Tracks: Ragtime Blues, Can You Run, Can You Canoe
Added: February 2010
Notes: Produced by bass player extraordinaire Eric Thorin, Romano’s debut is full of some of the region’s top session players, including Sally Van Meter, Betse Ellis, Caleb Roberts, Eben Grace, Todd Moore, John McVey, Mollie O’Brien and others.

19. Dovekins – Assemble the Avery (self) Genre/Style: folk, americana, bluegrass
Sample Tracks: Walks So High, On the Dells (He Smells, She Repels), Waltz (Dictionary_ I)
Added: June 2010
Notes: Assemble the Avery makes the TOP 20 almost SOLELY on the voting of our panel this year – the album has failed to make a significant dent on the spins chart in 2010.

20. Air Dubai – Wonder Age (self) Genre/Style: hip-hop, pop, r&b
Added: October 2010
Sample Tracks: Restless Youth, I Know How, Ten Weeks
Notes: I’m stoked that it made the top 20. I got turned onto this band at a Westword event prior to this year’s Westword Music Showcase in June. I don’t expect to hear this record at most of our RMMN reporting stations, but for those that do air it – PROPS! This is a fun, young, hip, sexy r&b dance record, more likely to be heard on a commercial TOP 40 station (or one of the RMMN college stations like KDUR or KCSU), than a Rocky Mountain public radio station used to airing more acoustic/roots oriented content.

Monday May 19, 2019

It doesn’t happen often – but it sure did this week as I was able to rip open five new tracks that are currently not available online – not on YouTube, Bandcamp, SoundCloud or Reverbnation, the sites I use to share new tracks for the MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting).  Artists are sending me stuff LONG before they can get them online, or in the case of Clandestine Amigo, to not put them out online for public consumption at all.

Songs from Clandestine Amigo, Dust Heart, Kyle Emerson, Coal Town Reunion, and Andy Eppler were only made available this week for radio airplay on the Colorado Playlist.  They are NOT available, at this time, online.

Coming in the next episode, new music from Alan & Martin, Courtney Hartman, Jackson Emmer, Grayson Erhard, Stillhouse Junkies and Tyto Alba.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Every day I discover talent from here in Colorado.  Courtney Hartman is the latest.  Per her FB page: “Acoustic Guitar Magazine recognizes her as a “distinctive guitar stylist… and a songwriter that delights and disturbs.” Her early years were spent playing folk and bluegrass with her siblings at festivals around the country. After leaving Colorado for the Northeast, Courtney joined up with folk quintet, Della Mae, touring internationally for seven years, releasing three records and garnering a GRAMMY nomination.”  She’s now back in Colorado and I look forward to seeing her perform regionally.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

From Faceman; “In typical FaceMan fashion this is a super cool collaborative video and song that was part of the Fort Collins 53:14 film festival. We got paired with a random filmmaker and had 53 hours and 14 minutes to do a video.  We also recorded at Mighty Fine Productions with Klaus Larson (who recently just recorded the new Violent Femmes record)!”
