I don’t often get a chance to go out for an entire day to see a batch of new up and coming bands – unless I’m working the event. Sunday I spent the day at Hodi’s Half Note in Fort Collins to see friends, and to immerse myself in seven hours of music from 10 bands, only three of which I knew anything about.
The event was the annual Scene Magazine “Fresh Talent Showcase,” a judged event that awarded the winner time in a recording studio, along with a pro grade photo shoot, a pro level consulting session with Yellowbright, and a slot on the Scene Magazine stage at the 2017 Arise Festival in Loveland next August.
Write Minded took home the top prize, but all of the bands brought game … Congrats to everyone who participated.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK:
besides writing and performing original music both as the leader of the Patti Fiasco, and as part of the country-folk duo Whipporwill, Alysia Kraft is not above giving us her own personal interpretations of other songwriters’ songs.
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.
