What a weekend! The band spent over 12 hours in the studio (Mighty Fine Productions) this weekend working on the debut of my first EP “Sweet Inspiration,” in memory to Miss Pattie (RIP). I’m hopeful we’ll get it done for a cd release show on Jan 20 and 27 2017.
Spending the weekend in the studio, recording for what really amounts to the first time with a full band, has given me a deeper sense of appreciation for how much work goes into records that are far denser and more layered than a single country-rock-folk release. Bravo to those who go in and lay out some of the best of the best …
There’s an excellent article in BIZWEST this week about the Bohemian Foundation’s Music District in Fort Collins that outlines the work that folks like Tom Sharf, Bryce Merrill and Jesse Elliott have undertaken .. check it out here.
MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting) = The Patient Zeroes, The Prairie Scholars, The Savage Hearts, The John Weeks Band, 888, B Suite, The String Cheese Incident. **NOTE = 888 is not a new song.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK
MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING
I conceived of this idea as a way for you to discover some of the new music I played on the show, and to give you the chance to let me know which of the tracks you like, and think I should keep in rotation. I get a lot of feedback from fans about what’s liked .. and what isn’t.
In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file available on SoundCloud, BandCamp (my favorite), Reverbnation or YouTube.
It’s not a competition. It’s just a gauge of how well you like the songs I added this week.
