The Colorado Sound – S7/EP06 Feb 2013 + Video of the Week

chris k july 2010I very often discover new music for this show by browsing multiple publications and the published playlists of a number of regional radio stations.  When I find acts listed as “local” that I’m unfamiliar with I always make it a point of looking them up online.  I’ve discovered many acts that way, several of which have become favorites of mine on the show.  I like using sites like Bandcamp and Soundcloud more than any other when it comes to not only discovery, but also sharing new music here with you.  I also like using YouTube.  I wish more acts would utilize these sites – it makes sharing much easier, and more direct.

One such act I discovered this past week is Esther Sparks & the Whiskey Remedy.  Upon watching their wonderful video “Back to Life” I was immediately uplifted – making it my feel good video of the week, and the current leading contender for Video of the Month when I publish the next News Notes & Spins column on March 1.  Enjoy … I hope it brings you as much “feel good” as it brought me.
