March 5, 2017 … this is the 9th Anniversary of the Colorado Playlist (formerly Colorado Sound) blogsite. Can’t say thanks enough to those who come here often – knowing that people are coming by is enough for me to keep this going.
Colorado music history is filled with examples of musicians who moved here and stayed awhile and those who moved here and stayed permanently. As well, the stories also extend to those who were born and/or raised here and moved on to other places.
John Oates has been a Colorado resident and participant in our statewide music scene for many years. His Rocky Mountain rhythm section – Michael Jude and John Michel – also make up two thirds of the Vail based Brother’s Keeper. John has also produced records for Colorado acts Paper Bird and David Starr, and released a single with Ryan Tedder from OneRepublic.
The Wood Brothers are Chris and Oliver Wood. They grew up in Boulder and left, separately. It’s been reported that at their Red Rocks appearance in 2017 they said they lived in Boulder. They may list Nashville as their current location, but Boulder will always be home to Chris and Oliver.
Both John Oates and The Wood Brothers have new albums out that I just added to the playlist, and included in this week’s MMMM.
What you’ll find below are new songs on the show this week … listen and let me know which ones you think I should keep in the Colorado Playlist, and which I should delete.
NOTE: In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file available on SoundCloud, BandCamp, Reverbnation or YouTube.
