The Colorado Sound S7 EP37 OCT 2013

Goat_Logo_color_on_whiteThis week’s playlist features a couple of acts made up of some folks I’ve had the pleasure of following musically for the past fifteen years.  Equally Challenged features guys who were in established Fort Collins bands like Fatty Jenkins, Brakeman Junction, and Zonky Tonk Zydeco.  Toad In the Hole is essentially Kristi VanDeWalker, Geoff Morris, and Mark Serratoni from the band Zeut, all of whom I’ve known now since the late 90s.  Also featured this week, the new Nathaniel Rateliff (and what is more or less The Wheel) release…

Video Pick of the Week:  I don’t know if you’ve been paying attention to what’s really popular out of Colorado – and no doubt with over 131-thousand views in just a few days, the new video from former Colorado Springs (Air Force Academy) and Greeley (UNC) resident Tyler Ward qualifies as impressively popular.  Equally, his EP  Hello. Love. Heartbreak. (September 2012) went to #1 across 15 worldwide iTunes singer/songwriter charts.
